The bathroom is spacious and features a modern, glass stand-in shower, a single sink vanity with a large mirror, and a recently-added spa bathtub. Linens and towels are provided, as well as toiletries, such as shampoo and soap.

The living area features a comfortable lounge with a sofa, coffee table, and sliding glass doors that access the outside patio. Guests have access to reading material, including books and magazines. There is also a flat-screen TV, a DVD player, and a movie collection including, of course, the Lord of the Rings series. There is also a few board games to entertain as well.

The fully-equipped kitchenette comes with a mini-fridge, a microwave, a double hot plate, and a kettle for making hot tea and coffee. All necessary cookware, glassware, plates, and utensils can be found in the rental, as well as complimentary tea, sugar, and coffee. There is also a dining table with four chairs. Other amenities include a heat pump that maintains temperatures year-round, and, although not guaranteed due to the secluded rural area, access to Wi-Fi.

Outside the sliding glass doors in the lounge area, there is a patio with a private garden area. A cafe table and chairs invite guests to take their breakfast outside daily, which is included with the stay. Alternatively, guests can stay inside, allowing a breeze to come through by a fly-screen on the sliding glass doors.
