A new addition to our Lake House is a Alpine hot tub so you can now soak up the incredible Milky Way in luxury, then come inside to a toasty warm fire! 
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 freestanding bath or enjoy a shower big enough for two!
The lounge area is heated by heat-pump or log burner.
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.

Other things to note
