We bought the lakes 14 years ago and have been enjoying having yurt for seven years. I have 2 children and a brand new grand daughter and another on the way. Some of my favourite places are Lake Bled in Slovenia, Thailand and Krakow. I LOVE my hot tub after work a good book and a Havana Rum and coke, heaven! I think attention to detail is important so I like to think I have made the yurt, pod and lodge as stress free and relaxing as possible. We have some wonderful characters in our wild life including Dave the goose and Willow and Bailey our Pygmy goats. Our beautiful lake is the closest thing to heaven.
