What a great place! Super location, amazing people and very nice activities. Also, everything is well maintained and clean. The staff is doing a great job. The only negative point is that we had to leave.

Stayed in the hobbit home. They provided a small electric heater/fan. It did a great job heating the small area. There were plenty or extra warm fleece blankets as well. Very comfortable.
