If you want the greatest hosts and staff the hospitality industry has to offer then you will find them at The Bower at Broulee. If you are looking for more privacy then you would get as sole inhabitants on the moon, a beautiful close encounter with natural flora and fauna. If like me you love birds and having them share your morning tea with you by eating out of your hand.or just listening to their songs.Ifyou enjoy watching TV or your favourite vidoes in front of a warm glowing log fire. Maybe, like us, you enjoy sharing your BBq with a friendly Kookaburra as your guest whilst you savour you favourite wine.Then it has to be The Bower at Broulee. Just magic.
If you never have this experience and you do go to heaven , When St Peter asks "are you ready to come in or is there any one thing you missed out on on Earth". You will have to say "The Bower at Broulee."

Room Tip: Any of the five available are just magical

What a wonderfu weekend of pure relaxation in the Gold Bower. We were extremely impressed with the layout of the cabin and the small details such as the music playing as you arrive. We did not leave the cabin for the 3 days and just spent our time relaxing and enjoying the wildlife. We will certainly be returning.

We had a wonderful and very relaxing time at this forest hideaway last fortnight. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful quiet surroundings and the idyllic fauna that visited our porch often throughout the few days we were there. We undertook some beautiful bushwalks in the area and we snuggled in front of a gorgeous log wood fireplace in the evenings. It was divine. I only wish it had been for a week instead of three days. Mark was welcoming and very helpful and our fridge was wonderfully decked out with a delicious breakfast hamper which we enjoyed very much. We highly recommend the Bower if you're looking for a romantic hideaway retreat for a few nights.

We stayed in the white bower. As soon as you walk in you see the attention to detail. From the romantic music to the lit fire and fresh fruit bowl. Just the best little piece of paradise you could imagine.

I would recommend this place to everyone!

The huge double spa fits two easily. Robes and slippers provided too!!

We really loved the deck with stainless steel BBQ. The added touch of a spotlight made it fun later in the night to spot possums and other wildlife!

Bower at Broulee was one of our overnight stops from our drive from Sydney to Melbourne. We wish we could have stayed more nights. We enjoyed the cottage (the bathrooms, bedrooms, living room, terrace all excellent). We came inside the cottage and there was great music playing in the living room. We biked around the forest everyday. The kitchen was complete with utensils and you can grill to your hearts' content. WE enjoyed seeing these colorful parrots eat from the bird feeder in the terrace. Our kids said "This is our favorite place." and I totally agree with them. The food is great! (the food is ordered from a restaurant close by- you grill the steak and sausages.) The bath soap really smelled so good. The bath has a huge window looking out the forest. You get complete privacy here, great for honeymooners.
If we vacation in Australia again, we'll visit this place again.

Hi anne8888,
Thanks for your kind review of The Bower.
We're glad we were able to accommodate you for a couple of days of your Sydney Melbourne trip. Your teenagers were the first of our guests to take advantage of our new mountain bike hire service [courtesy of RegionX Wildlife Experiences] and we're so glad you all enjoyed exploring our walking/biking trails. I'll pass your comments on to the chef at North St cafe who prepares the BBQ hampers for us as well as to Lisa from Naturally Lush Soaps who makes and supplies our soaps.
As you suggest, we mainly specialize in catering for honeymooners but we're glad that your family also appreciated the seclusion and privacy.
Best,
Mark & Sue
