Thomas Rahalley was the original Irish settler whose location ticket landed him in the log-cabin ‘shanty’, which has now been renovated by Anna, a refreshingly uncontrived conversationalist with eclectic interests, and Bob, gentle giant, teacher of Taoist Tai Chi and resident minstrel. I’m afraid that Thomas, along with the cows and pigs, branch roof and straw insulation, is long gone.....

.... Instead you will have to make do (I’m sure you’ll manage somehow) with a king-size bed draped with quilts, fluffy towelling robes, a heart-shaped whirlpool for two, a fire, your own private outdoor hot tub, games and thick carpets. You will have no need to leave your self-sufficient cabin, but the draw of the verandah at the main house is strong. Hammocks, rocking-chairs covered in cushions, and jolly company are the pulls. Resonance is a place that makes you slow down and appreciate nature. Birds, crickets and spring-peepers (they’re frogs) sing a fabulous chorus while the sun goes down. Beefalo (yes, an official breed I’m told) ruminate in the surrounding meadows, and many vegetables are home-grown. Anna is a magnificent cook with an arsenal of suggestions and will make you meals or stock the fridge in the fully-equipped kitchen for you with prior notice. Abundant breakfasts can be served poolside, in the shade of an apple tree or amid birdsong on the verandah. Plenty of activities including star-gazing, bird-watching, swimming, picnicking, biking, kayaking and antiquing.
