We absolutely loved our stay here. Nature at its best. Maple Grove is delightful and Hogsback truly magical. Thank-you for your great service Peter & Lyndsay! We look forward to visiting again.

Wow, we are in awe of Maple Grove. We had a peaceful and re-energising stay here. Our trip to Hogsback has been far beyond our expectations. You must continue this venture even when the chips are down. Maple Grove is a delight on its own as it could be anywhere in the world, it really doesn't need the support of Hogsback. Thank you very much.

This was our first trip to Hogsback and we loved every moment. The natural beauty and hospitality has been very special. As keen photographers we could not have asked for more. Four days was simply not long enough and a return trip (or two) will have to follow. Maple Grove is a delightful haven. Thanks to Lyndsay and Peter for sharing your beautiful home with us. Until next time.

What a lovely experience! A beautiful hideway tucked in amongst the trees, exuberating its warmth with an exhilarating view of nature's best. The cold, silent winter nights broken by the crackling of the fire. This was not a holiday, it was a wilderness experience that we will cherish forever.

We had an absolutely fantastic time at Maple Grove - and cannot recommend this beautiful place enough! We stayed in the Cottage for 3 nights on our honeymoon, and couldn't have been happier; the place was spotless, spacious, had everything we needed, and Peter and Lyndsay were incredible hosts. Our car broke down as we arrived, and they helped us fix it, offered to let us borrow their car,... - in short, the perfect hosts and the perfect place. We will definitely be back!”

This was the most beautiful experience we have ever had. Mystical magical journey we will never forget. Happy to say we've been in one of the most astounding places in the world! Thank you for the stay and saving us after our long hike and getting lost in the forest. It was awesome meeting Lyndsay and Peter and their hospitality was highly appreciated. When we return for another visit The Chalet at Maple Grove will be our home for the duration.
