    Hello Stephen, Thanks for taking the time to leave The Badger’s Shack feedback. You’re correct about the roof blinds in the 2nd bedroom. We’ve ordered some and will have them up as soon as they arrive. I’m sorry we did not notice earlier. We’re still refining this new building and feedback such as yours is very helpful to us. That apart, we’re glad you enjoyed your break and would recommend The Badger’s Shack to other guests. Thanks and all the best. Property Owner
