The Accommodation was Very Modern and comfortable, only had one night stay and was really relaxing , Great view over the valley from all aspects of every room, including bath, As Accommodation is relatively new once the shrubs and gardens mature it will be a sensational retreat.

Thanks for sharing your "weekend away" experience. We spent the weekend planting out nearly 200 plants... and another 200+ yet to come. Indeed the garden will be a stunning mix of rare and unusual plantings with a tapestry of colour all year round... whilst still allowing you to enjoy the stunning vista of the baw baw ranges that is our...

We thoroughly enjoyed our family getaway. We enjoyed eating at local hotel and devouring our full breakfast supplies the next morning. The cottage was so sweet and the kids enjoyed having a spa the next morning. Thankyou so much Ange for your hospitality. And for the birthday messages for Lilly.

Had a short 1 night stay at Vivere Retreat and I'm impressed by the architecture of this simple retreat. It is beautiful and classy and also very modern. Some food and homemade muffins were provided for breakfast. Spotted wild deer out in the open. Would definitely come back again if ever coming by Gippsland!

I cannot recommend The Retreat enough. Stop looking for anywhere else now and just book. Angela has poured her heart into this place and it shows. The views are stunning - we had planned to go out and explore more but we couldn't tear ourselves away from just staring at the views. This place has everything - views, fire, luxury...

Thank you for your feedback as I value all constructive comments. I am a little surprised that you found the cottage "not so clean" as I pride myself on my attention to detail. Ok on inspecting the cottage A-frame roof - yes you are correct there were cobwebs up high - these will be removed today - so thank you...
