Check out a tiny sample of The House at Smoko guest anecdotes...
"It is a very special place and to be honest, we felt a bit honoured to be there. We were working hard to come up with some improvement ideas, and all we could come up with was to sit the house on a rotating disc. This would mean we could admire the different views and perspectives on different days". Cam.
"We had two nights at the house with kids and it was perfect. The exterior and interior design is spectacular and warm at the same time. The place is so impressive it made me drive to Bright and buy better wine and cheese. We plan on using it as a base for ski trips and gluttony missions. It's the kind of retreat you want to buy, but you'd spend a lifetime getting every detail up to the standard of this place". Daniel."
"This is a beautiful place, perfect for families or groups of friends. It surpassed even our high expectations. We arrived to a warm house, with a fire set. The quality of the building, linen, finishes is outstanding. Thoughtful touches like a bottle of good quality maple syrup amongst the pantry items is typical of the attention to detail. Our children explored the bush for hours and played while we relaxed in sunny nooks and day beds or in front of the large fire. Every window has a beautiful view. The view of the snow capped mountains from the enormous dining room window is a knockout. Thank you so much for a memorable weekend. We'll be back". Sam."
"A beautiful house with immaculate presentation and surrounds and exquisite small touches. A great base for snowfields, fishing and exploring Bright and surrounds. Hightly recommended". Susan."
