A wonderful weekend stay over. The house was impressed by stylish design especially for the sustainable living experience. Acceptable distance to all the holiday sites nearby and perfect secluded place for a getaway. A small incident happened for the first night but the host and the owner didn't give us up even in the mid-night! Very impressed with everything. Great thanks, and we will definitely be back!

Beautiful architecture and location for star gazing. Enjoyed some roaring log fires and outdoor firepit with friends over a long weekend. Needs a little input in terms of managing heating and hot water, but worth the effort for this gorgeous place. Well set up for families (and great kids toys!). Obviously a well-loved home.
