“Breathtaking forests, environmentally sound classy lodge, gourmet food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2010

We stayed at these stylish delux rooms in the midst of beautiful forests with my 81 year old mum. She loved the forests walks and was impressed with the ecolodge. The hosts and gourmet food and delightful lodge all make for a first-rate holiday experience with lots to do: hunting for sightings of the elusive platypus, a hike up on the plateau or short drives to waterfalls, farms and shops.
In short, great design features in lovely accommodation at a very reasonable price with interesting hosts.

Best 2 nights sleep we've had! Peaceful surrounds, lovely walks, great place to relax
and enjoy the wonderful hospitalityl Rosemary and Sean catered all our meals,
showcasing food and wine sourced from local growers, which were restaurant standard. The eco-friendly design of the Forest Walks Lodge is an excellent example for
anyone wishing to visit to see how it's done!
If you want to relax, spend time with nature and enjoy warm, friendly hospitality,
we highly recommend Forest Walks Lodge, we will definitely be returning!

A guest home that is well detailed and comforting with the ecologically sustainable features of the home and the lifestyle of the hosts and the perfect slow cooked food which is seasonal and locally sourced.
The locality itself offers a myriad of natural wonders. After a day out and about, Forest Walks Lodge offers the perfect resting place with nourishing meals and a quiet nights rest.
Sean and Rosemary are available to offer and provide just the right amount of interaction with their guests.

A beautiful and carefully constructed lodge with views of the surrounding mountains, this was a wonderful stay. Rosemary cooked us two great dinners - one with smoked salmon from a nearby farm and another with lamb kebabs from another nearby farm. The rooms were spacious, and the lack of tvs refreshing. A possum made dinner time visits, which added to my kids' joy at the place. It was a long drive to get there, but well worth it for the views of the surrounding hills. Lots of walks nearby. We covered Liffey Falls, which was great fun for the kids.

Ecolodge is a sympathetically designed and spectacularly located lodge. The beautifully decorated, comfortable rooms with their locally woven rugs are large with en suite facilities and all have panoramic views of the tier mountains. Rosemary and Shaun were very engaging, informed and hospitable. The food was excellent in that most of it was organic, supplied locally or grown in their own garden and without prior warning catered for vegetarians, gluten free and lactose intolerants. One of the highlights of our trip, which I would thoroughly recommend, was taking one of their guided bush walks that starts right outside the back door. The only disappointment was that we were not there longer .
