    Thank you for the report, Anthony. It good to have a warm spa after being out and about in the cold, but, that is what we expect in winter.

    A cosy and very comfy townhouse unit with views over the lake. Close to everything very peaceful and private. Rooms really clean and a lovely two person spa is an amazing bonus.Nice bed but really enjoyed the upstairs space (lounge and kitchen). Felt like home
