Joe and family were outstanding hosts. Such lovely people, we felt like family. The accomodation was top notch at 100%, and Joe made our stay 110%. The cottage was clean, had all we need for our stay with little touches on top which made it even more amazing. Even though there were other properties on the grounds the cottage was very private and so comfortable. Our toddlers had lots of fun roaming the grounds. The amenities were amazing, pool was a beautiful place to spend your afternoon and when you want a change of scenery, the lakefront is 10m from the pool and spa! Joe’s boat trip is a must do. Excellent day out with local knowledge and best of all it’s all customised to our group. Joe was very accommodating to our toddler’s needs and that made out trip that much more enjoyable. Thank you for the outstanding stay!
