Everything seemed busy, but beautiful place to stay
4 / 5 Good
I stayed here with hubby, my mum and 5YO and 8YO daughter... it was just the right size for us. There was one master bed, with large hanging space and small chest of draws, one small double room with a tiny airing cupboard turned storage / hanging space and a twin room that just fit two single beds and a bedside table .. but no room for clothes and you can only just open the door.... again worked fine for my family as I organised kids clothes in master bedroom.
The living area downstairs is airy and the view from both master bedroom and living area is beautiful view over the lake, where you can often watch people water skiing or swans / ducks swimming around.
The Lakeside Restaurant / bar was only 10meters away, but we barely heard them, that was also where you could hire a speedboat to pull inflatables or ski around the lake, but when I asked the restaurant was fully booked for evening meals all week and boat was fully booked for the next week and a half!
Actually a lot of the local amenities had been fully booked since before we arrived, I'm not sure if that is a pandemic thing or something that happens every summer, but if you are going I would advise booking activities early!... Not a fault of this property.
When we arrived, the keybox was a little stiff and someone came over to help (didn't catch his name), he also promised to send recommendations about local places to eat... but that didn't happen.
The front door was a little stiff and the TV is just that 'a TV'... ie although there was an aerial connected, we couldn't get a picture. There was an HDMI cable, so if you bring a laptop with HDMI out you can watch that way. There is also a DVD and CD player (but no CD/DVD's). I did write to owner and ask about this, but got no response.
Kitchen was fine and nice that they left some bread, butter, milk, coffee.
Would have been nice to see a little 'Welcome' book with local recommendations and instructions for TV.
