This guest house is really lovely. It is situated right on the lake and the hosts (John and Christine) are happy for guests to use their canoe, kayak and paddle boat. The lake was clean and warm for swimming too. Breakfast was excellent - all home cooked, and the hosts were more than willing to cater for our dietary requirements.There... More
