We four of us including 2 kids stayed there in March 2014. It was a very pleasant stay throughout, We took the topmost room which has excellent lake view and secluded from the main place. Outside the room there is a verandah with chairs where you can sit and relax. This is overlooking the lake downhill. If you get up early you can enjoy the sun rise, and lots of birds chirping around, eating the insects around. You can see mainly bull-bull, colourful sparrows and humming birds.
