What a beautiful, magical spot! The grounds are amazing. The location and proximity to beautiful hikes and waterfalls was ideal. The staff and food were terrific. Their dogs are the cutest trek companions. I really can't wait to visit again!

Stayed in the hobbit home. They provided a small electric heater/fan. It did a great job heating the small area. There were plenty or extra warm fleece blankets as well. Very comfortable.
