A bunk room downstairs accommodates 2 singles and 2 bunk beds and upstairs there are two separate queen size bedrooms. There is a full kitchen which is very comprehensively equipped, inviting you to cook up a feast and enjoy in comfort!
Heating is by way of a slow combustion fireplace which is great for atmosphere but as a back up, oil heaters and electric fan heaters are provided. Hot water is ample and always available!
Bathroom facilities are on the two levels - upstairs there is a unique arrangement of a separate shower-room, separate toilet and a separate vanity - this is fantastic in the morning rush when people are trying to get out as three people can get ready at the same time.
Other facilities include BBQ, bath, large drying room, washing machine & dryer, SKY TV, stereo/DVD, loft and a new kids TV/DVD with bean bags to relax in. It is also great to be able to leave all wet ski gear in the large undercover area at the rear. This area also provides shelter in preparing firewood and getting ready for the days activities.
Recently, a new paved and landscaped area was created to capture the surroundings and the sunshine. It's a perfect place for that BBQ and a glass of wine. Children can play safely and there is a wonderful pine forest to explore at the rear.
