Great getaway for peaceful weekend in the hills. Lovely lodge set in beautiful surrounds. The owner friendly and welcoming. Had the fire going for us when we arrived on a cold wet night, with great breakfast provisions supplied. Good location, close to near by local shops and cafes.

We had such a great midweek getaway. The Verandah Cottage was fantastic, outdoor spa was awesome, full kitchen and a comfortable bed - what more could you want! Internet was non existent but was to be expected in the hills! Highly recommend!
