Yvonne and Ciara were wonderful and friendly hosts who made us feel completely at home. The hikes in the mountains with Pippin the guide dog are something we'll always treasure. One of those places that make the spirit soar :)

Old Mill Drift is the perfect place for quality family time. The peace and quiet is really amazing. The view is really spectacular. The friendly welcome makes you feel like home. I would really recommend Old Mills Drift to anybody that wants to step away from the city rat race.
