The kitchen/dining room has gas cooking, all cooking utensils and crockery, and hot & cold running water. There are flush toilets, hot showers, bath, solar powered lighting, and an airing room. A walk-in chiller suitable for fish and game has been installed. Its use is subject to availability of fuel on-site, and a charge is made for its use. The Lodge is managed by a resident host and is open year-round. Booking is recommended, to make sure there is a bed for you.
