We stayed two nights with our kids and my parents in the Grand Lodge. Plenty of space, with the two kitchens and relaxing areas. The kids and I loved lazing in the hot tub, even in the cold of Winter. Saw deer, fox, rosellas and beautiful natural forest views. So secluded, you feel like you are miles from any other... More

My bridesmaids and I stayed here the night before my wedding at Tatra Receptions, it was wonderful. The rooms are lovely and clean and the surrounds are beautiful. Alix was so hospitable and flexible with our needs. She even had fresh bacon and eggs in the fridge for our breakfast the next morning. Our group was 10 and the house... More

We spent two nights as returning customers to the cottage , it was quiet and relaxing and the sky high package was a great deal , the cottage is a good romantic destination for a couple as it's small and intimate , needs confier seating and maybe a range of DVD viewing to relax with but overall a very nice...

Very accomodating for a last minute weekend getaway with friends. Clean & comfortable self contained cottages set in a peaceful location with a hot tub to top off the relaxation. Mornings were fresh but beautiful waking up to the sound of nature, even had a visit from a Kookaburra much to our amazement! Short drive to local supermarket & picturesque... More

It's all about location - Fernglen Forest Retreat has it all... Great clean accommodation, great host, tranquil environment and lots to do. Shopping at Olinda and Sassafras, picnics at Alfred Nicholas gardens and Sherbrooke Forest, Devonshire teas at Eden Gardens and then come home to a spa and wine... What a week.

Celebrating a 75th birthday with the extended family was a huge success at Fernglen Forest Retreat. Alix has done an incredible job in this beautiful property at Mt Dandenong and the Lodge is perfect for groups such as ours with a self contained apartment and amazing 8 seater spa at one end and a three bedroom house at the other....

The driveway was a bit difficult to manoeuvre but apart from that our was so great that we found a place that we could all stay together. Phone service... More
