Gracious, hospitable hosts; a lovely clean and well maintained chalet established in a superb setting overlooking the Frankland River. Offering lots of opportunity to get away and walk through the bush to the river. Lots of lovely birds and the roos & wallabies abound in the evening and early morning. Just right!

Stayed at the Riverside Retreat for 1 night as we were driving through from Albany to Margaret River and needed a night stop. The houses/chalets are a bit a drive in (so please get there earlier when there's still light to be familiarized with the place) but it was such a peaceful and serene plot of land! We were greeted...

Between the forest giants and the clear waters of the franklin river lies a delightful wilderness retreat that will soon have you relaxed and in touch with nature. Chalets are well managed, spotlessly clean and well presented. I would recommend a BBQ on the patio with a local bottle of wine at sunset as you watch the kangaroos graze on... More

We only stayed for a night but wished we could stay longer. The unit is very cozy and clean, perfect place to relax and recharge yourself. This place is definitely worth the 10 mins drive from Walpole. It would be a ideal place to base and explore the surrounding nature attractions. We even saw kangaroos on the property. There's a...

Thanks Don and Margot for a perfect vacation! The chalet was spacious, very comfortable and had everything we needed. The fishing along the Franklin River was awesome. And the Bibbulman hiking trails, in the giant Karri and Tingle tree forests, close by. We came here from Malaysia to get away from Chinese New Years fireworks every night, all night for... More

Very clean, well appointed cabins, with heaps of room for the whole family. Hosts were very friendly, informative and helpful. Great for teenagers, and they especially liked the canoes. Would recommend.

We stayed in the end chalet, Promised Land. What a view! Just the place to unwind in. Sister-in-law from South Africa was blowen away by the Kangaroos that were on the property, in fact that was one of the reasons why we booked. Don and Margo are wonderful, friendly host. The place was spotlessly clean. Stay here you will not... More

Upon arrival, Mrs Redman, Margo, showed us to our house. My family and I stayed at the unit known as 'The Railway". She was very informative, friendly & open in showing us around the place and helping us "get started" with the area. From the living room, at about 4.45 to 5pm or so, we were treated to several kangaroos... More
