With 6 cleared acres to wander about, surrounded by National Parks, this is the perfect getaway retreat. An addition to the privacy is that access can only be made by four wheel drive, and accessible all year round with good wet weather tires.

Three acres of a fenced paddock that would suit anyone with horses, secure hitching rails close to the Lodge for peace of mind.

This Lodge boasts 6 bedrooms.

3 bedrooms x 2 single beds.

Can sleep 12 people.

One of the main features of this property is the external, undercover social living area, which has LED lighting, furniture and the biggest open fireplace in the Howqua Valley, with cooking facilities, such as a Pizza oven, gas BBQ, Charcoal grill and a Webber that most people find desirable. When the sun goes down and the air starts to chill, just light and stoke the fire up, relax with friends and family, and talk about “How Good is This”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How's the serenity!! We spent a few nights at this secluded property over Christmas and loved it. The house was clean and had a well equipped kitchen. The kids loved toasting marshmallows over the grand outdoor fireplace. The weather was warm and the kids wore themselves out going down the river on their boogie boards. If you're after a private holiday spot and have a 4WD then this is the place!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful getaway We had a wonderful time at this serene property. Fishing, taking walks, 4 wheel driving and relaxing by the fire. Perfect for a group of friends wanting to get away from Urban life. The description and photos are very accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful setting. Just returned from our stay at Ware's. The property is beautiful, the river great for swimming and attempts at fishing. The house itself is well equipped and comfortable. The outdoor living/dinning area is fantastic and we spent 90% of our time out there when we werent out exporing the Howqua Hills. We would definetly recommend it to others. Please note, the owners were great with their helpfulness and their advice...take note of what they say, they were completely honest with us re access (4x4 only) and tips of things to do around the property...it was great having their information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ah the serenity!! We stayed in April 2016 with 5 adults and 5 kids, had a great time! There is no Internet and No TV, and we were really grateful for it, no emails, no texts and plenty of time to relax and unwind. Great place to stay if your 4wdriving around the area. And you definitely need a 4wd to get in there. e are looking forward to our next stay already.
