The amazing location, gorgeous views, comfortable accomodation, inviting spa and yummy breakfast hampers helped make our four night stay at Donnelly Lakes relaxing and enjoyable. We only wish that we could have stayed longer!

Hello Clint and thank you for your kind words. It was great to have you at Donnelly Lakes with your warm and enthusiastic approach to our little patch, the surrounding attractions of the Southern Forests and hope you visit us again.

Arrived mid afternoon to check in, the homestead was unkept with cobwebs all over the screen door which didn't even close. The owner was also scruffy and just pointed us to our chalet and said it was open. The chalet had huge cobwebs in both the bedrooms and a vague smell of urine coming from the carpet in one of...

Dear Sharon I am sorry there were things at Donnelly Lakes that were not to your liking. Cobwebs, I must say are an ongoing problem here because there are literally millions of spiders here in the forest, eating insects like flies and mosquitoes. We do brush them away on a very regular basis, however as a Land for Wildlife property...

From the moment my partner and I arrived we fell in love with the place. We were given fresh homemade bread and upon entering the chalet was a nice bottle of red. The spa was heated up and ready to go. We went for a canoe around the lake and wish there was more of the lake to explore. The...

Shadow the dog, lovely chalet, warm fireplace, lake and river - everything you want for a wintery weekend away! Our 2 boys loved it as did we! We would definitely visit again! Well located between Nannup and Pemberton, close to all the national parks to explore

We spentbtwo nights in the Heron chalet on the lake. Beautiful in the forest with a view of the water. Each chalet has a canoe for personal use with life jackets provided (although we didn't- didn't want to risk getting wet in the cold!). We did utilise the spa, which was lovely. Fire place was good - we just wondered...

Beautiful location for a quiet family winter getaway. We were met with hot bread and wine and chocolates and a blazing fire to start. The Kingfisher Chalet was perfect with comfortable beds and very warm. The kitchen was very well equipped, the whole chalet was clean. Shower pressure was adequate and always hot. Beautiful views over the lake and despite...

If you are looking for a holiday away from the rush and bustle in the beautiful southern forests, Donnelly Lakes is just the place. We love it for its peaceful quiet location, the lake where you can fish for trout (catch and release or pay for what you eat). You can also use the personal kayak provided for your use,...

Just the place for a few days away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Chalets are cosy and comfortable, with lovely views of the lake and everything you need for a secluded time away from everything. You can choose to walk around the property, drive to the nearby attractions of the karri forest and wineries, or just chill...

We were very impressed with the chalets. The location was perfect, being a couple of kms off the main road made it a peaceful hideaway. The outside spas were great and the chalets had an amazing view over the private lake. We enjoyed the walking trails on the property as well. I am sure you will see us again, great...
