We have spent a wonderfull days with Ingrid and Eric. The lodge is really beautiful and I really love the cooking of Ingrid, and the decoration of antiques in the lodge. It was an incredible experience, to ear the stories and adventures of Eric and Ingrid. Thank you very much for share them with us.

Return visitors - and it was worth it again. Good food, kids are well looked after, high relaxation factor. Just regret we didn't go for longer walks this time. The flowers were in bloom and everything was beautiful. Go here. You wont regret it.
