Quiet and beautiful
We loved our stay here. House was spacious and the big windows facing the lake were wonderful. When we were at the house we spent most of the time watching the swans and their cygnets. Rita was very responsive to any questions and her brother who came to help us with a few things was a gem. Plenty of space and all the amenities you'd need in the kitchen. Would stay here again.

Perfect vacation spot!
House was perfect! It was centrally located for us to use as our home base for different daytrips. Rita is such a great host. Anything you could possibly need she helps with. Example: we traveled from the US and couldn’t find hairdryer at the house (our mistake we actually found it in a closet later in week). Sent a text asking about it and she had someone deliver a hairdryer to the front door about 20 minutes later! I’ve never worked with someone so accommodating! The lake view from the living room is incredible too. Sunsets were beautiful!
