2 night just wasn't enough in this beautiful retreat! My cousin got married at Tatra Receptions and we were a family of 7 looking for accommodation - this was the perfect location! The house was amazing, definitely more than we needed for an amazing weekend stay!

We stayed for two nights for a friends 40th birthday. The house is extremely large but can be sectioned off to create a sense of cosiness if needed. We loved the open fire and had a fun first night drinking champagne in the undercover, outdoor spa while it rained in the forest around us....magical. The house was exceptionally clean and... More

My husband, I and two children stayed in the Spa cottage for four nights in May. The cottage is beautifully appointed, spacious and lacks for nothing. It has a wall furnace, but for coziness we kept the wood fire going in the Coonara. The spa is lovely, in a covered, very private outdoor setting. The cottage has a covered verandah,... More

Myself and friends stayed here last week and found the place and owners to be superb, we were met onsite and shown round explaining all the features, then essentially left alone for 5 days (other than a quick spa clean daily). The accommodation was spacious and all rounds were well appointed and spotlessly clean. The outdoor area again was incredibly... More

A group of four of us stayed here in February and had a fantastic time. It was the perfect place for a large group. The accommodation was amazing, beautiful and very relaxing. Our host Alix made sure we had everything we needed and was very accommodating, helping to make our stay even more special. The spa was great! We highly... More

We stayed in the Windmill Lodge for two nights in January for my nieces wedding. We came over from Perth. My niece had her wedding at Poets Lane. Ferglen Forest Retreat was close enough for us to drive to the wedding. We are so happy and glad we stayed here. This has to be the best place in the Dandenong... More

The location of the fernglen cottage and the out door spa made it a place we had to stay as there was 4 ppl and a baby we had to have a extra room opened. The extra room was a double bunk bed and single on top. As the other cottage was not available to be rented out as we... More

m1n1me, Manager at Fernglen Forest Retreat, responded to this review

Raucous and undiciplined behaviour from these guests led to them being offered a partial refund, in the hope that they would depart early. Without pemission, they topped up the spa with water destined for toilet flushing, rendering the spa unsafe for use. Twice, late in the evening, they had to be asked to keep the noise level down, whilst flrolicking... More

We stayed for one night with our toddler at the Windmill Lodge. It is newly renovated and just a lovely space to relax in, especially with the log fire. There were plenty of toys inside and outside to keep our toddler entertained. We would have happily stayed longer. Two small issues: there was no heating in the bathroom so it... More
