Enjoy the comfort of a king size bed with a view directly through to the lake and mountains beyond. In the bathroom you can relax in a luxurious freestanding bath or enjoy a shower that is big enough for two!
The lounge area is heated by underfloor heating and a cosy log burner. You can go outside to view the magic of the Milky Way from the front lawn, then come inside to a toasty warm fire! 
The front of the cottage opens up completely to take in unobstructed views of the lake and mountains.

The space
The lakefront is accessible from the front door, directly opposite the famous Church of the Good Shepherd and a few minutes stroll from the local cafes and attractions.
Star Gazers is the Black Cottage 18b.
