Verified reviewvery good

Spent 2 nights in this quiet cabin. Wild Syringa is a comfortable cottage that offers all the basics you need to escape to the bush. The privacy, along with the peace and quiet, was what we were after and that is exactly what we got. The cottage has solar lighting which is enough to use the kitchen and living spaces with adequate lighting. In Summer I suggest you take a large cooler box with lots of ice as the fridge is connected to the solar and doesn't run 24/7, it does run for an adequate amount of time, enough to keep items cool. For dairy/meat best to have alternative option like we did as everything worked smoothly that way. Great facilities - the awesome walks, the small dam/reservoir, the deck to enjoy the sunsets, and privacy. It is accessible on the dirt road by normal sedan, it is tucked away so expect a fair bit of a drive on the dirt road but it is in good condition. I would highly recommend Wild Syringa at Kokopelli Farm.

Wonderful to be out in the bush again and follow the trails on the farm. The bats in the ceiling on the verandah are delightful but cause a bit of a mess and the flies require getting used to. Really enjoyed our stay.

What a beautiful, pet-friendly gem we found not too far from home. We loved our stay, our place was fully equipped with what we needed, the views were amazing and our dogs just loved the hiking trails! We will be back for sure!
