Loved everything about Platbos, was exactly what we needed. It is a very relaxing and tranquil place. Love that is very private.We would have liked more hiking trail signs up, as one could get lost if taking the incorrect path.

It was a beautiful cabin on the lake. The views were breathtaking and it was so nice and secluded. The bed was not the most comfortable- but I am a fussy sleeper. There was so shampoo - so remember to take your own. I am definitely going to return in winter. The "no electricity" was not a problem at all, as there were solar powered LED lights and two USB points to charges phones etc. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. Thank you

It was just perfect. Peaceful. The surrounding mountains were magical. The cottage was tastefully designed. We didn't want to leave and will definitely return.

We spent a lovely weekend in this tranquil setting. The view over the dam and up to the mountains, some snow capped, was stunning. The finishes in the cabin are of high quality, the furnishings very comfortable. Best of all, the three cottages are spaced far apart so one has privacy and peace. We'll probably be back next year for a weekend.
