A really nice stay, amazing views of the lake and
Lovely quite location with an amazing view. The bed so really comfortable and the shower had good flow and plenty of hot water. Check in and check out was a breeze, coffee machine and own BBQ was a bonus also. There are facilities to wash you clothes although we did not use them. Parking was not an issue. I would highly recommend this accommodation
