Loved The Merry Moose! Just perfect for two couples to enjoy this wonderful spacious house . We particularly loved all the French doors onto the balcony , The view to the Vineyard next door and the super lovely house meant a wonderful stay. Communication with Julie was very prompt.
I stayed at Tyraman Retreat with a group of friends for a birthday weekend in the Hunter Valley. We arrived late Friday night, and enjoyed a few champagnes around the camp fire, accompanied by some music through the great sound system. The fire inside the house keeps the whole house very cosy. We also had a possum come join us (venturing within half a meters distance!).
We were blown away with the house, the pictures are a pretty great depiction of the house and the views. The house is a unique design, with lost of windows looking across the great views, and sophistically furnished. The property itself is huge and there are some great walks. There were two private bedrooms and two larger rooms with a number of comfy beds, looking over amazing views of the property.
We hired a bus with Gardner Tours, a local bus operator in the area, to take us around the Hunter Valley wineries on Saturday. Caroline picked us up (who lives in a nearby town), and the trip to the closest winery was about 30 minutes. It was a delightful drive throughout he countryside. On the way home from our tour we stopped in at the Beatty Hotel for dinner, and carried on our night back at Tyraman.
The hosts Stuart and Rosie went above and beyond to accommodate us, and were extremely helpful in providing us with very timely and useful advice / suggestions.
I could not rate this stay more highly, up there with one of my favorites, and will be back next year!
