The magnificent Hunter Valley Lodge and Retreat is set on 5 beautiful acres and has been designed and furnished with every comfort in mind. The Hunter Valley Lodge and Retreat is located in the heart of the wine region with marvellous views and minutes from absolutely everything the Hunter Valley has to offer.

This amazing unique lodge boasts 10 spacious bedrooms and 7 bathrooms accommodating 14 - 32 guests in comfort and style. With magnificent wrap around verandahs, a refreshing swimming and relaxing jacuzzi, a huge games room with pool table and table tennis and an impressive entertainment and sun deck with stunning views to the BrokenBack Range, the Lodge is the perfect solution for large groups or who want to spend time together but also enjoy their own private space.

As you weave your way down the tree lined driveway you are met by our two life sized bronze stags which watch over this special space. The Lodge's interior has been modelled on a traditional Canadian Hunting Lodge, with the central lounge focusing on a huge stone fireplace and soaring cathedral ceilings, which provides the ambiance to the rest of the lodge. A second lounge and TV room can be found on the top level.

The main lodge enjoys a modern semi commercial gourmet kitchen with quality appliances including two large ovens and two dishwashers and absolutely everything you could want or need to create your own Masterchef dining experience. The large dining area has a magnificent custom made oversized table and offers a relaxed atmosphere where guests can dine together and enjoy the peace and serenity of this beautiful setting. There are three BBQ's available.

The Retreat which is adjacent to the Lodge has its own brand new kitchen and a lounge and TV area plus a further outside entertainment area.

This unique property is perfect for large groups of friends and family and also for small weddings and smaller corporate conferences as it can accommodate over 30 guests in total and 26 guests in individual beds. You can relax on the deck of an evening and hear the roar of the lions, who are our newest neighbours at the Hunter Valley Zoo. Surreal

The Hunter Valley Lodge consists of three buildings; The Main Lodge, the Retreat and the Bison Den games room. The Main Lodge has six spacious guest suites and four and a half bathrooms. The Retreat, which is adjacent to the main house has a further four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The Bison Den is our games room. If you have a smaller group then you may be able to reserve the Lodge or the Retreat only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This place was absolutely perfect! This property was everything the guests and I were hoping for and more. Beautiful surroundings, plenty of land, peaceful, secluded and very private. The Bison Den was fun and ideal for kids but adults also as there is a range of fun things to keep you entertained from Table Tennis,the pool table, toys for minors, music and fire place etc. The rooms were spacious and had all the amenities to make you feel right at home. The back deck and pool/spa with a view of the country side was the perfect way to end the day with a BBQ and couple of drinks while the sun set over the mountains. I could not have asked for a better stay and would certainly recommend this to others and will definitely be back. Thanks again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful property We celebrated a birthday with 20 family members, and every one loved the house and facilities. The kitchen has everything you could ever need, and we made great use of the pool and spa over the very hot weekend. We all want to come back!
