The  Finlake Resort is a private estate with a few social etiquette rules which may not be immediately apparent, so I would love to share them with you here please:

  • No big parties please. (A small dinner party is obviously more than fine)
  • Please don’t smoke inside and no BBQ near the lodge or leave it unattended – for fire safety…..super important
  • Please do not speed on the roads as there are young children and animals on the estate.
  • Please don’t park in the parking bays other than your specific lodge.
  • Please don’t leave washing or towels on display over the balustrade although on the outside chairs is fine.
  • Please don’t  play games or picnic around the lodges, please go to the games area.
  • Although super tempting please ask your kiddies to not bounce on the beds, run up and down the hill or too noisy considerate for neighbours.
  • Enjoy the place as it is your own, don’t worry about the table cloth – if it gets dirty i can wash it easily.
  • There are loads of play areas around the resort and my understanding is that they prefer us to not run up and down the hill in front of us…..just to be mindful of  the neighbours..although again….looks tempting….
  • Please remember to keep the noise to a considerate level to neighbours.
  • Also, please only let natural waste and toilet paper go down the toilets.

Enjoy yourself and the beautiful surroundings.
