My boyfriend and I went stayed for a night. We originally booked the Treetops cottage because we loved the idea of the spa bath next to the bed however upon arrival we were told that they had moved our reservation to the Ferns cottage. Although we were disappointed and frankly quite annoyed, the lady at reception told us that there was a disclaimer in the email stating that management reserved the right to move us to a different cottage to fit in other guests. While we acknowledge that management has to do what they can to accommodate other guests, we would have appreciated being told about this change days before our intended arrival. If this had happened, maybe we would have requested a different cottage etc. Please take note of this, because while I've read other reviews for this place before going, I did not think it would happen to me.
Anyway, my boyfriend and I did not kick a fuss over this and decided not to let this detail ruin our getaway. The Fern cottage was beautiful. Tastefully decorated and comfortable. The fire place is also a beautiful addition, especially since we went during fall. However we did not feel like the cottage offered enough privacy away from other cottages. The spa bath was spacious and enjoyable and the double shower was lovely. While we were contented with the Fern cottage, we felt that the Treetops or Dreamwood cottages' position on the hill would have offered a stronger feeling of a "getaway" as opposed to the Ferns or the Silverbrook.
The next morning, the water supply was cut off to all cottages but fortunately management rectified the situation promptly.
Overall, it's a beautiful cosy place, perfect for romantic getaways. It was annoying to be not given the cottage we originally booked but for the price, it's a pretty good value.
