Me and my family had a great time at Karen's guest house. Karen was very nice and made you feel at home the moment you arrive. Lots of privacy and a great location. Close to town and great spots for hiking, perfect for an adventurous weekend getaway. Would absolutely stay again.

Karen was so lovely for our honeymoon. She went out of her way to bake us some vegan, gluten free treats and even got us a bottle of champagne to commemorate our wedding. She was so responsive and greeted us when we arrived and when we left. The place is beautifully secluded in…
