Wonderful stay
The people were really friendly and they made us feel right at home. Food was great especially the heavy breakfast, the apartment was clean, and the resident kitties and doggie were really adorable. The only comment we have is that the pillows were a bit small/low and the beds were too soft but this is based on one’s preference. We prefer firmer (and higher) pillows and memory foam beds (again, based on preference). All in all, our stay was lovely and we’ll definitey be back here again!❤️

Great place in the nature
Wonderful place surrounded by beautiful nature. We stayed in the Fisherman’s cottage which was very clean and comfortable with a view on the river - super nice! The restaurant was lovely and the owners, as well as the rest of the staff were friendly and great. We didn’t have breakfast but it looked delicious and plentiful. Would stay here again anytime!
