General commentsA small family trip, 3 couples. Alex and Carolyn were exceptional hosts, the lake is tranquil and beautifully maintained. The swims were spacious and comfortable, the facilities are outstanding. The fishing was tough due to the weather being up and down but we still caught plenty of fish, but best of all, the fish are immaculate and some of the hardest fishing I have experienced. All in all, lovely times.
