Description

The Lodge is an impressive handcrafted building constructed from local timber built on the site of an old Cattleman's hut from the 1930s. It has a 7 metre vaulted ceiling supported by huge load bearing timber beams. The glass front to the building provides breathtaking views of Mt Buffalo gorge whilst your dine inside.

With 3 fully equipped bedrooms. The 1st floor is occupied by an indulgent master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a spa bath with views across virgin forest. Downstairs there are luxurious queen and double bedrooms, with a shared bathroom that includes a shower and an elegant cast iron claw-foot bath.

Things to Do

The spectacular luxury accommodation contains everything you should need for your stay, including a small library of books and DVDs, a selection of indoor and outdoor games, a telescope to watch climbers and hang glider pilots on Mt Buffalo and a high power spotlight to track the deer, owls, wombats and possums that occupy the grounds at night.

For the more adventurous, the lodge provides easy access to and walking trails as well as being located at the bottom of one of the best cycling climbs in Australia.

The region is an outdoor playground for children and adults alike.

The secluded location also means that there is no phone connection and no TV reception - our guests seem to like it that way Mobile phone reception is limited.

We can also arrange for a personal chef to cook you a fabulous 3 course meal, with or without wine for our guests.

Grounds and Fire Safety

Scattered around the grounds are approximately 60 fruit trees, planted as rent by those who stayed in the original hut throughout the years. We'd love you to help yourselves to our organic lemons and limes and whatever other fruit you can find during your stay.

Our property is managed in accordance with Land for Wildlife, a voluntary scheme that encourages and assists private landowners to provide habitats for wildlife on their property. We provide a spotlight for guests to search for animals at night. You are likely to see wombats, wallabies, kookaburras, lyre birds and even occasionally the rare yellow bellied gliding possum on our property.

We take fire safety seriously and have constructed the house to comply with the draft Australian Standard for houses in high bush fire risk areas the standard that has now been applied to all rural homes since the Black Saturday fires . It is built on a concrete base, clad in a naturally fire resistant timber, all the external roof timber is painted with fire resistant paint and there is an external sprinkler system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cosy secluded getaway Thoroughly enjoyed a weekend away from all the hustel n bussle of busy work life. A Creek running along the property, at the foot of Mt Buffalo not a house in sight. Felt like our own private getaway. Well equipped with everything you needed. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, beautiful, peaceful retreat My friend and I stayed at Red Earth Lodge for a long weekend away. The property is in an amazing bush land setting, with no neighbours in sight. Was total peace and quiet with lots of wildlife to be seen and a perfect view of Mt Buffalo. The lodge itself is stunning, clean and an amazing space to be at ease in and the hosts were friendly and helpful. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the baths were huge with a view. It is settled right next to the National Park and a close drive to the pretty town of Bright. Perfect weekend away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect house in a perfect setting We spent 2 nights here and loved this place. It's in the most beautiful surroundings and the house is amazing. The fireplace is perfect in winter and the spa bath is awesome. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen functional, and the entire place just totally memorable.
