Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had a fantastic long weekend with our two dogs! The Retreat is perfect - so comfortable and we loved having the log fire! There is a secure yard for the dogs so had no fears in letting them have a run round outside! A taste of the country yet only a few minutes drive from Apollo Bay. Highly recommend a visit! We will be back!
