Nestled in the heart of nature

Nestled in the heart of nature, Gold Panners is our middle cabin and just a stone’s throw from the parking lot. It’s cocooned in natural screening from lush hedging plants and young trees, ensuring your privacy.

Step inside, and you’ll be transported to the Gold Rush era. Gold Panners boasts a bespoke wood-panelled finish that immerses you in the rugged charm of pioneer life, all while enjoying modern luxuries. Decorated with unique touches inspired by the Gold Rush, it’ll make you feel like you’ve struck gold yourself.
