We stayed in the bigger lodge and the room was very comfortable! The cabins are placed near a river. The river sound was very relaxing and the walk within the camping ground was full of beautiful views of lovely houses and tons of colorful flowers. Also the bakery has amazing blueberry scones.

Amazing Stay!
Loved our stay here! The restaurant was especially excellent; we ate there for lunch and breakfast. Their baked goods are second to none (get the rhubarb coffee cake & homemade sourdough bread)! Would absolutely stay here again.
