We had such a lovely time. Margi & Allan were wonderful hosts. The accommodation was very comfortable with lovely design touches. The bed was really comfortable and the shower had great water pressure. It was nice being able to use their spa in the evenings.

“Serene Spot!”
Reviewed 12 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

What a lovely spot to stop....only wish that we had longer to stay and explore the property/area. Our hostess was there to greet us and show us the accommodation, which was lovely and perfectly appointed. The fireplace was also a warm sight as the evening cooled. There was the option of using a hot tub but the weather really didn't allow for that! Next time!! Everything one would need was there....just terrific!!

“Perfect, so relaxing and has an amazing log burner.”

The Barn has everything one would need kitchen is well equipped, plenty of books puzzles etc and TV the Bed is comfortable and the bathroom is small but very clean and all one needs to use. We have stayed at the barn quite a few times now as it is perfect place to end up after a day up the mountain skiing. the log burner keeps the place warm along with the heat pump. The hosts Margie and Allan are great to they are always happy to help. We speak highly of this place to lots of our friends.
