Dear Carolyn and Glenn
I just wanted to say ‘thank you’ for the wonderful time we had at your lodge.

The accommodation was wonderful. The food and hospitality was fantastic. And the hunting, trout fishing and general scenery (and wildlife) were amazing.

You provide the perfect blend of relaxed comfort / luxury with authentic outdoor experiences.

We will be back!!
