    Carmen. Thank you for the amazing review. Wish the Rovers could be here every weekend. All my best, Andy

    The road there was rough, so go during the day. If you are looking for a beautiful, remote place... this is it. The sauna was wonderful. The sauna would benefit from a stronger stove with more rocks. Would return!

    Thanks so much! The problem with that sauna is he built it out of log. They take forever to warm up in cold weather. Glad you enjoyed anyway. Thanks again, Andy
