Soaking in a hot bath under millions of stars…

We love this review from one of our guests

Do you dream of sitting on the porch of your own little rustic hut at the top of a mountain and gazing across the valley over at the sun going down behind more mountains and the sky and everything around you turning a deep golden colour?

How about being able to sit in a hot bathtub under millions of stars? And then waking up to a golden sunrise and being able to heat up a hot cup of coffee and some oatmeal on the stove? This place was absolutely magical and I wouldn’t hesitate at all in staying here for a truly wonderful and deeply peace-filled and awe-filled stay! There’s a bit of a hike in (which in itself is incredible!) and the hut is rustic for sure, but that’s part of the charm and character of the place so as long as you are aware of this you’ll hopefully fall in love with it like I did, and never want to leave!
