Just delightful
Amazing all around. Angie and Garth are incredible hosts, the lodge itself is fantastic, clean, comfortable and relaxing. Cute lambs and nice farm area if you want to explore, beautiful walks and biking trails nearby. The food and service was impeccable. We got afternoon tea on arrival, a complimentary glass of wine and delicious breakfast the next morning. I would go back In a heartbeat!

Angie and Garth have a special arrangement with guests where they serve canapés and drinks every evening in the lounge {with it’s warm log fire}. Gives the opportunity for more conversation and information when touring.

The hospitality was above anything I have experienced before. Angie & Garth provided local and country recommendations that were very helpful. We shared a lovely evening with our host and fellow travelers discussing travel and current events. Angie & Garth provided evening appetitizers and wine. We also arranged to have a delicious dinner on site. Breakfast and dinner included foods from their garden and everything was outstanding. I would recommend staying with Angie & Garth.
