We stayed here back in October 2018 and totally loved the place! I was everything we needed in a holiday house and was perfect for us. Very clean, warm, comfortable, great layout, wonderful views. Just fantastic! One of the reasons we chose this place is because it allowed animals, so we took our little dog which at the time we paid a small fee for. I see now there is no pets allowed which is such a shame as we really wanted to stay again. I was a great place, but a word of warning... don't walk down the slippery stairs in just your socks!
Enjoyed our stay. lovely warm, cosy place and well equipped with everything we needed- nice and clean. would return if ever back that way.
We loved this place! A cosy quirky retro nest that reminded us of childhood family shacks back home. We stayed here 1 night over easter (thankyou!) as 2 families of 5. The kids were in heaven over the trapdoor and ladder access to the bunkroom downstairs. Wouldn't recommend it for families with toddlers though. Beautiful view. Would return.
