Had a fantastic birthday weekend getaway and couldn't have picked a better lodging. Owner was very friendly and accommodating (even drove us to the local winery) and the views are incredible, as well as the place being immaculate. Very relaxing and be back for sure :)

This was an absolutely beautiful location, one of the highlight spots of our holiday. The accommodation was well appointed, clean and very comfortable. Our host, Tony was super friendly and gave us some great tips on places to visit. We can't wait to come back and more time at the fantastic Sacred Mountain Retreat.

We stayed here for a night en route north. It was gorgeously appointed, spacious and had a great view through to the coast. Owner was lovely, accommodating and welcoming. Kitchen was well-stocked. Was great for a way to break the trip that isn't falling into a depressing motel room, but would also work for a longer stay given the facilities.... More

Sacred Mountain Retreat……… To quote the title of Thomas Hardy's novel "Far from the Madding Crowd" Is a perfect elucidation of the haven. The only overt noise is the sounds of the exquisite neighbourhood feathered creatures. So beautiful & confident to greet you in the morning for what ever you would generously share with them. Yet one can still visit... More

While the house had good views (reached via an almost vertical driveway) the overall cost and for what it was represented poor value for money. As an example we stayed at a superior room at the Langham hotel Melbourne for the same cost. The interior was clean and functional. Overall the building interior was clinical and was not comfortable -... More

A few friends and I were keen to find a place with nice views to relax from our hectic work schedules. I booked Sacred Mountain Retreat not knowing much about it, and could not have been more impressed. On arrival we were greeted by the loveliest people you will ever meet, and guided to an amazing cottage. On the table... More

We were pleasantly surprised as we drove up the mountain ridge to Sacred Mountain Retreat and then amazed when we actually stood on the verandah of our cottage at the breathtaking views. We could see up to the mountains of Dorrigo National Park, out to the ocean in front and then down to the headlands of Nambucca and South West... More

Although it is in a nice location and the features were of reasonable quality there were damaged fly screens and dated furniture which made it hard to justify the hefty price tag. Private and quiet but a dissapointment nonetheless.

My parents and I stayed in the Panorama retreat. Gorgeous views when the clouds lifted, relaxing environment (interior and exterior), a lovely breakfast was supplied in the fridge as well as a bottle of red on the table! This is definitely a place I would recommend to my family, friends and complete strangers. I will definitely be booking in at... More
