Clean and tidy cabin with full kitchen. One or two bedrooms to suit either a couple or family. But the best thing was the roaring wood heater which was perfect for when the temperature dropped to 0 degrees overnight! Lovely property with an indoor heated pool, free washing machine (clothes line on porch) and animals in the paddocks. Great location... More

Beautiful setting with friendly owners and clean accommodation. Can't really ask for much more! They even offer a nice night walk which was a pleasant surprise. The only reason I didn't give them the highest rating is because there were no food options on site.

We had a wonderful evening at the retreat. The cabins are a bit rustic and tired but they were very comfortable and the stating made up for the deficiencies. John has a wealth of knowledge about the local wildlife and is more than willing to share. If you want an up close and personal experience this is the place for... More

My family of 5 stayed for 2 nights and truly enjoyed the escape from city life. Nestled in an idyllic setting against the backdrop of Mt Roland, the retreat is perfect for those who want to get closer to nature. Possums, platypus, echidnas, wallabies, cows, and various other species can be found. We had the pleasure of joining the free... More

What a splendid farm. Took a nice long walk in the compound. Cows, chickens, horses and a number of red-breasted birds flying about (not a bird person). Superb. Fireplace in the living room was a delight. Already thinking of bringing the parents in next time around. There are also plenty to do in the area beyond Cradle Mountain. Wished had... More
