Really appreciate your comments - we wish you had been able to spend more time here also. There are a lot more attractions than the ones you were able to enjoy. Good luck and best wishes with your building project in Colorado.

Flaxhaven Lodge is uniquely situated alongside picturesque Flaxmill Bay, near Cathedral Cove Marine Reserve and Hot Water Beach, yet central to countryside and town. 4 white safe sandy beaches and a More great restaurant are within a few minutes walk. At Flaxhaven Lodge there is a glimpse of the sea, but essentially this is a garden setting, spacious quiet and peaceful yet with bars/restaurants a short walk, drive or quaint ferry ride away. Less
