    Great concept. New, clean, and delightful place. Close to trails, and has all the amenities required. The in room air conditioning was a huge relief from the heat.

    I had a wonderful stay hiking and mountain biking with Peter, Brenda and the team at Trails End. They offer a comfy and relaxing base for outdoor adventures land it’s close to outstanding vineyards and local markets. Their wellness program, including the Pilates and yoga classes were a great addition to the stay. Highly recommend!!
