We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Romantic get away. Stayed 3 nights with the wood fire burning each night. It is centrally located with Stirling and Crafers nearby. Adelaide only 20 minutes away. Romantic setting restaurants around the area which makes this location perfect. We will stay again when visiting the area.
