Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic escape Absolutely fantastic stay at this gorgeous little retreat. Suzanne was a great host, making sure everything was OK after we arrived. Such a beautiful lodge that is well thought out, incredibly clean and with stunning stunning views. It's so quiet and the pictures of the views on this website just don't do it justice. Will definitely be back! THanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a view! Only 1hr20mins from the Melbourne CBD but the cabins were so secluded we felt like we were much further away. We stayed in the corner Eagles Nest cabin which was spacious, very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. The views are simply spectacular! Beautiful Rosellas feed in the surrounding trees and we spotted many kangaroos on our sunset walks. The spa and shower are both luxurious and relaxing. Highly recommended! The pictures don't capture the beauty and tranquility of this retreat.
