We had such a great weekend staying here. Bed was very comfortable, kitchen fully equipped and we appreciated the old school collection of DVDs and use of kayaks. Thanks very much we hope to stay again
Take your own linen but otherwise fully equipped. Great place to stay.
Brilliant location in the hidden secret that is Lake Clearwater. No water view, but huge windows on the top floor afford a broad view of the teeny-tiny township and the mountains beyond. Hard to believe this house is OFF GRID! It has been pimped all over and is pretty comfortable. Great log-burner churns out the heat, which was much needed as we woke to snow! I imagine in summer your could use kayaks on the lake, but we just walked the three hours around and the kids used 2 bikes. Gas oven and stove top worked well. We used the telescope and saw a tiny saturn and her rings - magic! Shower pressure was great. Be aware that downstairs has no heating so you will need to use hot water bottles and warm sheets. They could do with a few more glasses and chairs for a big group but that's not a big issue. Be sure to drive the 15 mins up the road to Mount Sunday - incredible location used in Lord of the Rings.
