The property is at the gateway to Lovedale, Pokolbin and all the wineries, restaurants, attractions of the Hunter Valley Wine region.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very warm welcome. We had a lovely stay at this eclectically decorated property. A gorgeous venue, the most magnificent views, very comfy bedding... it was the perfect place to spend a rainy weekend. Owner (and Bella the dog!) are so friendly and make you feel right at home. We will definitely be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxation and Comfort We stayed two nights at the Widow's Peak resort, and were thoroughly enchanted. Both the setting and the facilities were first class. It was our first farm stay and we both commented on how relaxing the experience was. We will definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serene & Peaceful We stayed for the Easter weekend and had a fantastic time! A delightful lodge in a perfect location with a very friendly and helpful owner. The views were spectacular from every room in the lodge. The bedroom is upstairs & every morning you can watch the sunrise lying in bed or going down to the verandah. The space was very comfortable & the retreat was tastefully decorated, with a friendly dog following you wherever you go. Absolutely amazing property and definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing time away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing & Romantic Widows Peak is a wonderful little getaway! I stayed with my partner for two nights and could not have felt more at home. It was extremely welcoming, cosy, well-equipped and had loads of character. There is no sign from the road indicating you've reached your destination however once you know the number (35) it was easy to find. The building itself offered spectacular views over the Hunter region and looked down the valley over the Hunter River and toward Wyndham Estate. It was a beautiful location to gaze upon whilst eating breakfast on the front verandah. Cooking was made very easy by a well equipped kitchen (kettle, large fridge, stove-top, toaster, fry-pans, utensils, crockery) and was made even more pleasant by the free condiments, eggs, milk, butter, fruit AND CHOCOLATE provided. The sleeping arrangements were MORE than ample for only two people - the Retreat can sleep 6 people! But the queen bed we used was very comfy and the sheets were divine! It would be the ideal location for a group of friends as all the beds are located on the top floor over the one space (slumber party anyone!?). Located on the cusp of Greta, the Retreat was ideal for getting around the Hunter Region, we had no problems getting a bus to pick us up and drop us home for our wine tour. Because it is on the side of town it retained a wonderful country feel. All in all we had a wonderful time and loved every moment. The house was filled with so many details that made it feel very homey! Recommend to anyone looking to escape the masses and find some quiet time away from the major centres. (NB: a possum resides in a tree near the house and can be heard aggressively grunting at night time. And a friendly horse lives down the side of the house and loves a scratch).
