DRY CREEK RETREAT is a modern earthy house with extensive rock and timber features PRIVATELY nestled high on 12 acres abutting Lake Eildon. The property backs onto Lake Eildon which is an ideal fishing spot and features SPECTACULAR views of the Lake, surrounding mountains and famous Bonnie Doon Bridge. It is only 900m to the Great Victorian Rail Trail which is the longest trail in Victoria, 20klms from Mansfield, perfect for bike or horse riding.

DRY CREEK RETREAT is a 10 minute drive to Mansfield, a small picturesque town in the foothills of the Victorian Alps and only a 40 minute drive to Mt. Buller. The RETREAT is less than 2 kilometres along the Rail Trail from the popular Bonnie Doon Pub ..... an easy walk home after a delicious meal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How's the Serenity? Pretty Amazing! As soon as we turned into the driveway you could tell that Dry Creek Retreat was going to be serene! We stayed with six adults and three young children and it accommodated us very well, the property is huge and offers plenty of things to do, the BBQ was well used and we even got the fire pit going one of the nights. Every morning I enjoyed a cup of tea on the porch and overlooked the hills which allowed me to briefly forget life's troubles. As soon as we all departed to head back to the real world we instantly missed the place and the camaraderie that it allowed us to build and enjoy between families and it has inspired us to start a traditional family get together. We have even contacted the owners to ask what mattresses they use because we all had comfortable great sleeps. Every luxury is accounted for here! Dry Creek Retreat is highly recommended!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Laid Out We had a lovely stay. The lay out of the house is very good with two bedrooms and a bathroom on both sides of the large living area. We were two families so it gave us privacy. Very close to the Great Victorian Rail Trail, and a nice walk into Bonnie Doon across the bridge. The kitchen had everything we needed and the place was very peaceful

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect getaway We had a group of friends with children stay at the retreat on the Queen's birthday weekend. It was well laid out. A big living room in the middle, with a well equipped kitchen, dining table and a couple of areas for lounging. The wood fire in the middle of the room was a highlight. The morning sun would stream in at the back of the house, where there were outdoor couches, and verandah at the front for the view and watching the changing light with the sunset. The fire pit was also well used by our group. Rooms were large and the bathrooms lovely. Everything was thought of by the owners - I cannot recommend it enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property Dry Creek Retreat was everything and more than was advertised. The house and surrounds are kept in pristine condition, with a fantastic wood heater with wood supplied, not one item that you require for stay has been left out, from an outdoor candle to amazing natural soap and bathroom products, high quality linen and comfy beds. The kitchen is just perfect with not an item required available at easy reach and find and the breakfast goodies of free range eggs, avocados, tomatoes were a wonderful suprise. The outdoor areas are perfect for views and entertaining with great outdoor seating and table ideas. I cannot fault one area of this stay. The easy access to the main road, but still quite and not close to neighbors is also a bonus. Will definitely return.
