An absolutely delightful place to stay if you like the peace and quiet of birds and the wind in the gum trees. The cabin itself has everything you need. We opted for the food package - the portions were very generous and the wine choices were excellent. We prepared for a large bath tub which takes 20 mins to fill...

This little hidden gem was the highlight of our Hunter Valley weekend away. It was very clean, private and very romantic. We had a package that included a breakfast hamper, a cheese and wine hamper and a BBQ dinner hamper which were all filled with delicious fresh local produce. I highly recommend staying here!

Fantastic place to stop and recharge your batteries, the detail and cleanliness of the retreat is second to none with everything you could want just waiting for you to arrive. From first impression of walking in to last impression on leaving was wow, both Murray and David have both done a fantastic job in making this a memorial weekend

Excellent. A tittle bit of luxury in the outback. Wonderful breakfast provided. My lady loved the muesli. The fire was divine. The grill was a nice touch too. Couldn't have asked for more. What an experience. Highly recommended!

We felt like we were staying in our own little private world for two. The accommodation was spacious & beautifully appointed, & was cleverly situated so that you felt like you were miles away from civilsation but cafes, restaurants & wineries were actually only a short walk away.

Thank you KayCee2282 for your kind review. As you stated, although our retreats are placed within their own private bushland setting, the historic village is conveniently close-by - no point being too isolated, after all, who should be expected to live without cafés, restaurants, and wineries! We are so pleased that you and your partner enjoyed your stay. We hope...
