Fabulous location. You view the lake through the gum trees filled with crimson rosellas, kookaburras and other birds. Seed boxes are just outside your door to fee them and bring them right to your verandah railing. BBQ, swings, laundry, small boats are available for your stay. It is situated a little out of town so stock up on food before... More

Lovely quiet setting with views through large trees down to the Lake and jetty. Beautiful birds delighted us with their morning and late afternoon visits. Great for photographic opportunities - king parrots, rosellas, lorikeets, galahs etc. Comfortable and clean and warm. Easy drives to nearby places of interest.

Thank you for leaving such a wonderful review. We're glad you found Jetty Road a great break from city life. Having just spent a week in Melbourne (traffic!) again ourselves, it was good to return to our serene little spot here in East Gippsland. "Comfortable, clean and warm" are 3 things we think are non negotiable for an enjoyable stay,... More

Near Lake entrance, can you imagine a self contained acommodation above the lake, surrouding by trees and the jetty, where sunset, sunrise are so bright, birds, parrots flying around you, birds sounds invite you to relax... the acommodation is very comfortable, well equipped... so you disconnect your life and connect with natural life... I spent two lovely days there... and... More

Everything you need for a peaceful weekend away! Mattress a tad hard for my old body, otherwise very comfortable! The owner, Kim, was very accomodating & helpful with our booking. Lots of wonderful walks, gorgeous birds feeding near the balcony & close enough to some great restaurants if you don't want to cook!

Thank you for leaving a review vonn1966! I'm pleased you enjoyed your weekend escape and enjoyed the nearby walking trails and beautiful birds. Sorry you found the mattress a tad firm. The mattress toppers provides some extra softness but we're still searching for the ultimate "universally loved" mattress. The holy grail for hoteliers around the world I suspect. See you... More

A beautiful view through trees of the water and jetty. Relaxed reading the morning paper after feeding the friendly visiting parrots (food provided) and gazing at the water. Simply but comfortably furnished, fresh and bright and spotlessly clean .

After a rather eventful drive from Melbourne Airport (my fault entirely!) it was not only a relief to arrive at the Retreat but the following morning, to look out over the water, was just magical. My tip to anyone who might find themselves driving in the dark down to the Retreat, is to take the advice of many on the... More

Stayed here for three nights in April with my family. Cabins are not modern but certainly have everything you could need and were well kept.
