Serendipity has a wonderful peaceful setting on the Wilderness lagoon, surrounded by a well established garden. The rooms are exceptionally comfortable and lead out onto a deck overlooking the lagoon - what a place for a sundowner ! Followed by superb food in the award winning restaurant downstairs ! I also had a most enjoyable paddle along the lagoon on one of the free canoes provided. Great place to stay.

Beautiful location and very unique style, was able to take a dip in the river in the morning. Owner was lovely and helped us with restaurants etc... The evening meal was very special explaining where everything came and what wine went with what. Food was exceptional. Highly recommend. (we got told by 2 couples we met on same evening to come here)!

We knew there is great restaurant here, but now we decided to stay these premises, too. Lovely service, beautiful area, lot of birds enjoyed the garden with us. Such a nice room, excellent bed. Everything works nice and very clean place. Location little outside other services of Wilderness, though. But still walking distance.
