Verified reviewexcellent

A very relaxing weekend for the adults with a combination of keeping the kids busy with fishing, a games room and walks on the property. We were two families which were easily and comfortably accommodated in Eagles Nest. The cabin is well equipped. We would recommend this venue to anyone wanting time out.
