Such a nice get away, the pictures don't do it justice. We took our (well behaved) german shepherd with us, so it was nice to have understanding pet friendly cottage owners. We stayed four nights, and enjoyed the assortment of breakfast goodies and laying in the hot tubs at night steering at the stars. We even came across a couple... More

Presentation, attention to detail and execution. Cottage facility is very well equipped making this wilderness location superbly comfortable.Abundant bird life, close to the wild west coast, but almost all attractions require driving.

We stayed 2 nights at Birds Ferry Lodge. It's so rare to find accommodation that so comprehensively exceeds one's expectations. There was nothing not thought of in the cottage-the inventory, the ambiance and even the clear user instructions. We arrived at short notice, but even our vegetarian preference was catered for exquisitely.

Birds Ferry Lodge is lovely. Alison and Andre are outstanding hosts. We arrived with wet bathing suits which they immediately offered to wash and dry. The lodge is warm and cozy and the food is outstanding. I left with recipes in hand!

I don't think I need to add to the excellent reviews already on here, but to echo the same amazing sentiments that this place is worth the drive up. Arrived at 7pm with a fishpie and a berry crumble ready to warm up, plus a breakfast hamper which we couldn't finish and took some even for lunch. Stunning lodge and... More

We stayed 3 nights in Ferryman's Cottage. It was brilliant! The weather was lovely and mild, with hardly a breath of wind. The surrounding bush is just stunning. Our kids enjoyed the resident ducks and weka. Alison and Andre are warm and friendly. We needed to take our boy to the doctor during our stay - they not only told... More

We had two nights recently at the Ferrymans Cottage. With the remote location and gorgeous surroundings it was truly an unforgettable break away. The cottage overlooks the most gorgeous bush where you can watch the sun set beautifully in the evening. The outdoor baths were such a beautiful way to unwind in the evenings too! Pet and family friendly -... More

We spent 4 great days in Ferryman Cottage and it was wonderful! The isolated and stunning location gave us a boost of energy and inspiration we needed. The cottage is warm, cozy and functional. We were also very impressed of how Alison and André have thought of every detail. The reception of our hosts could not have been better. We... More

An excellent and personal reception by Alison and André. We stayed one night in the lodge. Despite the rainy weather it was a five-star experience. Luckily we booked dinner: it turned out to be outstanding, worth a top-restaurant, seriously. Breakfast as one to remember too. A place to return to. Patrick and Chris Vanhelmont-Meyers
