The super king master bedroom adjoins a twin bedroom via Jack and Jill bathroom, making it perfect for families with younger children. Outside, the hot tub, which is heated via a ground source heat pump, is a wonderful treat, all year round; inside, a wood burning stove provides warm comforts on the most rugged nights.
