Built for the sun and spectacular views of lake and mountain, Castle Hall is a spacious, light and wonderfully equipped holiday home.   Nestled at the base of the Cowens Hill reserve, the night sky here is one of the darkest in the village - perfect for star-gazing from the deck!

The open living, dining and kitchen area is fantastic for a family or group of friends to spend time together while soaking up the stunning vistas.  Large sliding doors open out to an expansive deck.  In cooler months, the home stays cosy with a gas fire, and several heat pumps.

The main queen bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, with another queen and 2 twin rooms sharing a second large bathroom. Each bedroom has built-in shelving so you can make yourselves at home.

A large covered carport provides great storage for skis and outdoor equipment, including a heated drying cupboard. Located on a quiet street just 3 mins drive from the village centre, with walking tracks up Cowens Hill from the back door. 

By prior agreement Castle Hall also welcomes well-behaved dogs, so your whole family can enjoy the break (not fenced). See our FAQ's for more details.
