General

  • Unfortunately, pets are not allowed at the lodge.
  • Smoking is prohibited inside the units.
  • Take note of and heed any of the signs posted inside and outside of the lodge. They are there to ensure your safety and well-being.
  • Nothing beats the sound of crackling wood on a fire so please feel free to start these up and enjoy, but we do request that fires be put out properly before turning in for the night.
  • Please refrain from starting fires during windy conditions.
  • The main unit makes use of a septic tank and given the complexities with this type of system, please avoid discarding objects such as sanitary napkins, tampons, disposable nappies or any other product that does not breakdown easily, as it will cause the septic tank to block.
  • We request that you use water sparingly given its scarcity in these rural areas, for example limiting showers to once a day per patron.
  • Please respect our neighbours by keeping noise levels to acceptable norms, particularly at night. Sound tends to travel much further in this type of setting.
  • Given the rural environment, livestock is plentiful and tend to wander onto the property, generally harmless but if a nuisance please persuade them gently out of the property. Villella our helper will be on hand to action if so required.
  • Only service staff and patrons are allowed onto the property. Gillies to sit at the designated area. Service staff have been informed to assist with trespassing issues.
  • Our service staff are obliged to carry out the lodges rules/policies hence if any concerns/issues with any of these please contact the admin office directly.
  • We are always looking to improve our facilities so please feel free to email the admin office with any suggestions and send us pics to post on our website or to put into our picture frames at the lodge.
  • Our final policy is for our patrons to relax, have fun and enjoy this beautiful place, leaving refreshed and satisfied and looking forward to your next visit.
