This place is a hidden gem and a great place to relax and unwind.
Upon arrival I received a warm welcome by Jamie and his team,
check-in was smooth and i was escorted to my log cabin and shown around.
The log cabin is luxury and beautiful views of the mountain and little river\below.
I did not fish but the dams looks lovely .
This is a great place if you don't like a crowded resort and value peace and quiet with a beautiful tranquil setting.
Next time i would like to book the Mill room , its looks amazing with the dam a few meters away.

I really enjoyed the stay. The place was very well kept and clean, and I felt that it was extremely secluded and tranquil. Only would have loved to catch a fish! There wasn't anyone that caught during the weekend which was a bit off putting! Otherwise, really enjoyed it!

There were loads of shops and restaurants. I find it has become a bit too commercialized though.
