We arrived in high winds in the dark into Silver Ridge Retreat and did not appreciate it's location and beautiful remoteness until the next morning, with views straight up to Mt Roland, paddocks and mountainlines all around. Truly gorgeous. The cottage was comfortable, warm and suited the purpose with 3 boys. This is the place for you to get away... More

Went on a hosted spotlight evening walk to feed possums, view platypus, wallabies and paddy-melons. We went for forest walk to silver mine and were always provided information... More

Our family had a wonderful stay at Silver Ridge and would highly recommend the place. The room is rustic, but cosy and the fire place, which had been set up before our arrival, easily warmed up the cottage on the cold winter night. I arrived in darkness, and there isn't much outside lighting around the place so I felt a... More

What a fantastic experience! From the moment we arrived (quite late) we were made to feel so welcome. There were 5 families and we 'took over' 4 cabins. Our hosts gave us a rundown of 'must do' activities in the area and we managed to get out and about to see the sights and attractions - just beautiful. The cabins... More

On arrival the hosts were very friendly and helpful, gave us a brief rundown of the activities on the resort and surrounding area. Found the cabins to be very clean and comfy, enjoyed lighting up the fire place every evening. We felt like we were the only people there as the cabins are private and quiet. Visited the on site...

Our stay at the resort was fantastic, John and Justin were great hosts and very knowledgeable about the local area. The cabin was clean and cosy with a complete kitchen, living area, spa bath, wood burner and amazing views of the mountain situated behind. We were well looked after at the resort going quad biking with Justin in the morning... More

We loved the fire place. It was already cold in early April. But the bedrooms don't have warming system. We felt cold during night. Lovely cottages with excellent mountain view. If the owner can do a little bit with the driveways , that will be great.

Had a very enjoyable trip with the family at Silver Ridge from start to finish . The hosts John & Justin were very hospitable and the kids had a wonderful time .Scenery is beautiful and is in very close proximity to Cradle Mountain - definitely recommend.
