Winter wood charge;We have found that guests are unable to resist using the cut wood provided for the inside wood fire in the outside pizza oven and especially the firepit -even though we provide wood for these at the wood pile.The cut wood is expensive at $180/m3 and increasingly difficult to obtain (Red Gum). As a result there is a $50 per booking wood charge from May-Sept
