From the first call to Deborah to the goodbye I can only say "What a wonderful peaceful experience". At just a few hours from Sydney's CBD, we loved the peace & seclusion, the absolute privacy was wonderous. Nestled in true Australian bushland with a private jacuzzi on the front porch, we were greeted by kangaroos & all manner of bird... More

Upon getting our cabin keys from the care taker we were greeted by a cosy little cabin with spa on the deck. It was absolutely amazing and suited to our needs. We enjoyed walks around the property and spotted some wildlife too. As mentioned in title there is no phone reception which was great best way to enjoy our holiday.... More

Wonderful secluded and romantic getaway, beautiful wildlife, and the hot tub on the porch is a great touch! Thanks to Kenny for making it warm and welcoming. If you're looking to relax and unwind in the wilderness this is it! Will be back! Jordan Gelbart and Bec Morrison.

It is as the name implies, a "secret escape".. Make sure you stock up on your food items before travelling to the lodge as it is a 30 min drive to the shops (which we hadn't thought of after our 3 hour drive from Sydney). I was disappointed that when paying $$$ for the stay, no light continental breakfast was... More

Romantic and relaxing, cosy cottage with attention to detail. Everything you could need and more. Beautiful surroundings, we enjoyed breakfast on the veranda with Kangaroos out front and by night a delicious BBQ with the stars. The log fire was delightful and jacuzzi a true highlight. We will return for sure.

The location, the cabins, the atmosphere, the jacuzzi on the porch were absolutely amazing. The whole stay was a delight. We definitely recomand taking the BBQ. In other words this place is really worth coming to.

We visited to celebrate our Pearl Wedding anniversay in June and booked at the last minute. Luckily we were allocated the "Victoria" cottage which was just the right ambience for what we were looking for. Beautifully polished floorboards and a four poster queen bed so comfortable we found a rare lie in a must. (Falling asleep to the orange flicker... More

We stayed here for my birthday in April and weren't disappointed! We wanted a break from the city, some quiet, relaxing time, and thats what we got. We stayed in the Artists Cottage which was a little away from the main house/building, with no neighbouring cottages. The cottage is lovely and could cater for 4. There were 2 double bedrooms,...

The property is huge, has lots of paths to walk and see native wildlife including wallabies. The cottage we stayed in was the Victoria cabin. Fully polished floor boards throughout, heated airconditioning and a great little fireplace. On the balcony is a spacious jacuzzi with a BBQ. We brought up all the supplies we needed to have a BBQ, cheese... More

We spent 4 nights to remember in one of the cottages. We especially enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and quiet setting. Maggie was very accomodating with our different requests, which is both unusual and appreciated. Also worth of note were the Jaccuzi and generous & tasty breakfasts. Overall, this was a fantastic place to forget about city stress.
