A mountain of pillows on the king-size bed is the first thing I notice, then the antique furniture pieces, the vibrant colours on the wall, all creating a noble atmosphere with a humble country twist.
If you’re lounging on the veranda around 4 o’clock at Mt. Engadine Lodge, chances are you’ll get to spot Mooseaka, Nana Moosekouri or Moosealini bounding across the brilliant green meadow.
