The Wilderness was perfect for our group of 16 close friends and 7 toddlers. The house was spacious enough that we didn't feel on top of each other, while at the same time feeling warm and cozy.
The garden was perfect for the children to run around in safely and the sauna was a real treat for the adults.
The house was extremely well supplied and incredibly clean. I would highly recommend the Wilderness to any large group.
