When we arrived at 4 the Friday afternoon the jacuzzi was running with half dirty water which was cold. When I ask the lady about it.....as I specificly requested for the water to be replaced before we arrive (which should be common practice in any way). They told me the previous...

We enjoyed our stay very much. It is a quiet environment with a magnificent views and provides peace of mind, which is what we really needed after our busy schedules. I would have loved to do some of the activities they offer but I think the environment just took our breathaway and we decided to enjoy the wonderful nature they have.

This is such a lovely place. Peaceful and relaxing. I enjoyed the long walks in the morning, the magnificent view of the mountains and the lake. The log cabins are warm and homely. The staff very friendly, cheerful and helpful. I would absolutely love to visit again.

We had a wonderful time. The staff and the lodges were fantastic and the views were magnificent. The game viewings were incredible and I loved the fly fishing. Viewing game and the views on horseback was lovely and a beautiful experience. Altogether a magical stay and I will certainly be back. I will be recommending the lodges to everyone I meet. Overall it was excellent. Thank you.
