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 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 absolutely everything you could want or need to create your own Masterchef meal. 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 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 corporate off sites as it can accommodate over 30 guests in total and 24 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 Just amazing We had a fabulous stay. The property perfectly suited our needs and was clean, comfortable and well appointed. How lovely it was to have a properly stocked kitchen, from someone who cooks for all 18 people over the weekend! Our queries during our stay were answered really quickly and resolved in no time at all. A further query about something left behind has also been resolved and your help with this is very much appreciated. A great service in all respects. We would love to, and fully intend to stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rustic Serene Retreat Our group stayed on your beautiful property for a 40th nursing reunion . We had lots of room and we're all really comfortable. All of our group loved the property and many commented they would have like to stay for a week. The girls commented on how great the showers were. The wine fridge in the dining room was fantastic. The kitchen made meal preparations a breeze. Your staff were prompt and very helpful re any queries and we really appreciated the early access to drop off food supplies given the unexpected hot weather. Overall your property and staff made our weekend a huge success. Thank you. From all the girls Auburn District October 1976 Reunion

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent Property This property is truly fantastic. Everything we needed was at hand. The beds are exceptionally comfortable and the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious. We were truly amazed at the generous amount of games, cards, activities that are about for use. The large games room is a real treat, as is the spa and pool. We used the Retreat as well as the Lodge and spent much of our weekend in awe of the place. Wonderful country outlook from the large and comfortable deck. A lot of thought has gone into guest comfort and needs. Wait until you see the kitchen! We will be back to do a big family re-union but for this stay, we were at a wedding with the bride using the Retreat....perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning, amazing property The lodge was absolutely amazing. We all enjoyed our stay and appreciated the phone call to state that there was a remote control missing for the upstairs TV prior to our stay. I just wished we could have stayed longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best properties I've ever stayed at! We hosted a Writers Retreat at this property for two days and it was absolutely perfect! The rooms are beautiful decorated and comfortable. The common areas are cosy and easily host a large amount of people and the adjoining retreat hosing is perfect for a little privacy. This would be absolutely stunning in summer. I only hope i get the chance to stay again!
