Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful location! We are a group of women who go away a couple of times a year. We were all able to fit with most of us having our own rooms. We loved the views and tranquillity and the beautiful large veranda overlooking the valley. The property had everything we need including a well equipped kitchen and lots of spaces to talk and relax. The spa was an extra treat. Would definitely go back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relaxing getaway We wanted to have a short getaway over winter, and knew we wanted a secluded location, a log fire, and a spa. Well Hunter River Retreat had all this and more. Spending nights in the jacuzzi on the balcony sipping champagne was a highlight. The kitchen was fully equipped, allowing us to not have to leave for a couple of days. We went for a walk around the property, met the horses, and played a spot of tennis. Thank you for a wonderful break - we'll be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal property Hunter River Retreat is the perfect weekend getaway. The hosts are very welcoming and friendly. We rented Olive, Bluegum, Ironbark and Rockhouse. All cottages are spacious, full of charm and authentic. All amenities are available and the real plus are the jacuzzis!
