We had a very pleasant stay at The Homestead. Pennie went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The rooms are comfortable and the food was good. I will definitely recommend this lodge to friends and family.

Thankyou for a glorious stay at the Homestead. It was a walk down memory lane for me. We enjoyed the socializing after meal times. We will definitely return to the Homestead. May you have a prosperous year.
