Beautiful secluded location. Very peaceful. Came for a friend's wedding. It is a perfect venue for a wedding. Friendly and helpful staff. Stayed 3 nights in the newer style 1 bedroom chalets. Big bathroom, spacious open plan studio style bedroom, living room and kitchen. Fully contained. No complaints. Nins Oh
5 nights here, just a wee break for me and Sue to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. Very nice, quiet, secluded and the chalet is first class. Very clean and comfortable. Lord Andrew Reid
Oh how I love this place! My family and I just enjoyed our second visit here in July and it didn't disappoint. A family friendly stay on a lovely property that affords long walks and bike rides though the bush. My children look forward to finding grubs for the chickens and I look forward to the view of the lake with a glass of wine! Staff are always accommodating and as last time, I have no complaints except our time staying here, was too short. I look forward to our next break away. Vatishi
Quiet and relaxing place to spend time with family. We stayed at a one bedroom challet and it was very spacious, neat and clean. Great place for young children as they have small bushwalk trail, fish pond and chicken coop (there is also chicken feeding session). In the morning, we could see rabbits and kangaroos around the place. Ferawaty Tjahjadi
