Our thoughts

This resort is the ideal place to get away from the stress, noise, and pollution of everyday life with its fresh air and tranquil pace and the unforgettable scent of the pine and cedar forests. The hotel is set in 23 acres of woods with much more beyond to explore on foot, mountain bike or horse or - for the adventurous - on a white water rafting experience.
