Gary and Merril are wonderful hosts. From the time we booked, helping us with planning our sky watching trip, to our arrival late in the evening and making us a beautiful chai, to the attentive care we received, the simple but luxurious and private accommodation, the astronomy session with Gary in the observatory, the shooting stars from the viewing platform, and the creative and delicious breakfasts served up each day, we had a delightful stay that exceeded our expectations. Merril is an excellent healer and we enjoyed very relaxing massages. She was also very caring during the first couple of days where I wasn’t feeling quite 100%. The photographs don’t do justice to how nice the living area is. The stars!!! We were delighted by being able to see the milky way in all its glory and spotted several shooting stars and planets. Gary is very knowledgable and gave us an excellent information session with the telescope. Merril is a creative and accommodating cook and we were extremely well catered for. We will definitely be back.
