Inside, the lodge mixes local artworks and more traditional touches with stylish furnishings. It’s a theme repeated throughout, from the public spaces, where guests are treated to roaring fires, comfy armchairs and a collection of books and board games, to the 10 spacious cabana-style rooms with their polished wood floors and four-poster beds.
