Great lodge that's peaceful and serene with plenty of trails for the eager hiker or mountain biker. It lives up to its name, a great retreat if you are looking for some quiet time to refuel.

Very quiet and the surroundings are stunning. Unfortunately, there were only old périple when we were there, so it looked like a retirement home… Oh and the cooking is average.

Fireplaces everywhere creates a cosy homely atmosphere. Beautiful view of the mountains, with lots of activities to keep busy (hiking/mountain biking/plenty of reading material). Very friendly staff. Delicious dinner and breakfast included in prices.
