Just a little note to let you know we had a fabulous stay at Good Dog Hill, what a wonderful place. It really did feel like home away from home staying up there for a week. We highly recommend it and we will be back!!

We had a wonderful time reconnecting with family at Good Dog Hill this past November. It is a spectacular property and a real home away from home. The Family Library is a brilliant idea.

My cousin and I escaped from the City recently and met family at Good Dog Hill for a wonderful weekend. It was such a comfortable and homely property with space for everyone! While we were there we also took the opportunity to explore the area and visited the nearby wineries. A great way to re-charge the batteries.

I had the pleasure of staying at Good Dog Hill when my daughter and grandchildren visited from overseas and loved it. My room was beautifully appointed with its own ensuite! I couldnt believe it when we went for lunch just 10 mins up the road to Cambewarra Look-Out. It was wonderful to be on the mountain and still close to a great dining experience (and another great view!). The tea house in Berry was also a favourite of mine while we were there. I will definitely be returning.
