|We have several neighbours, though all but one are
hidden by the trees. As a result you are unlikely to get disturbed by
loud music, or disturb other residents.
Our neighbours also rent out their cabin, it has two bunk bedrooms and sleeps six, otherwise the accommodation is similar to our cabin. If you are interested in their cabin, either in combination with ours or separately, email one of us and we will put you in contact.
Their cabin is shown below.
In the winter take your after/apres ski down at the river, light a campfire in the stone BBQ if you wish.
It's fun to relax down by the river even in the coldest weather.
|The river will get warm enough to swim in the summer,
though please use the thermometer to check before jumping in.
