The blessing that was our host gave us...yes at no charge...fresh eggs as ours had come to a sad demise...and then free dvd's as it was the one rain day of our holiday. Once you get over the surprise of walking into your nanas 1960 bach you will settle into the couch or bed warm and cosy. Beautiful setting, bird life abound, was peaceful, thank you.

The owners are lovely and the grounds and river are very beautiful! However the drive is very steep and rough gravel! The lodge we stayed at had a very antique feel and a bit time warpish! If you over look the peeling paint and old fashioned kitchen it’s quirky and interesting! WiFi is available but limited! An interesting stay but not for those who want modern, chic and sterile! This is definitely a unique stay!

Friendly greeting and staff, lovely location with a brilliantly beautiful backyard, full of things to explore on its own. Lodging is quaint and quiet with an amazing view from the porch.

Great getaway from the busy city life!

Love the cottage surrounded by nature! Enjoyed the chill river and quietness! Exceptional hospitality, Murray and family were very friendly and helpful to provide information on where to go and what to explore around the area. Our cottage was fully equipped with everything we need; pots and pans are all well maintained too. Would have been great if I had bring some books to read on the balcony while enjoying the quiet nature. It calms our hearts and slow us down from the fast pace. It's a great place to spend quality time with loved ones. Me and my parents had a lovely 2 nights stay!
