“The perfect romantic getaway”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

We have stayed at secrets 3 times now and each time it has been wonderful, just so relaxing, we have stayed in a different treehouse each visit and hope we can try another next time! It has just been heavenly, so peaceful from the creatively carved treehouses to the serene views of the lake.The lovely breakfast baskets, homemade scones and all the food is just delicious.
George, Aldy & family, thankyou for creating and sharing this perfect spot for us all to enjoy, you are the perfect hosts from the time we arrive until the sad time we have to leave.

Many thanks Sandra & Ian Ramsay

Room Tip: Recommend to stay at least 2 nights to unwind and soak in the atmosphere.

This was an absolutely amazing resort, would stay here in a heartbeat. There are wood carvings on the walkways, in the reception area, in the rooms, leadlight windows relating to the name of the rooms at the entrance to the rooms. Perfect for your honeymoon, very private rooms, you can even get married here. Also great for families as close to the lake for water activities. Close to Flame Winery for meals, purchasing wine.

What a wonderful piece of paradise ! We spent 3 nights in "Possums" cabin for our 15th wedding anniversary and hardly left our room during that time. From the complimentary breakfast breakfast, the generous BBQ hamper, the big comfortable bed, the relaxing spa-bath, the swing on the balcony, the spectacular views over Lake Baroon and the visits from the possums each night to share our dinner - everything was so much better than we had ever imagined. The serenity and peacefulness was amazing - what a place to get away and escape from the real world. Aldy and George and staff - thank you so much for an unforgettable experience. We can't wait to come back !!

We recently had our 3rd visit and are still in awe of this place .
The Owners and staff are always Friendly and nothing is to much trouble .
Everything is thought of and you are transported to a relaxed mood as soon as you enter the treehouse, with beautiful music playing and all the little things like the vase of roses.
The Breakfast basket is plentiful and there is more than enough to keep you going for a stay of 2-3 days .
Such a Wonderous place for a romantic interlude we rave to family and friends over this place. The new Cafe and gallery is a great addition to an already special place .
We will continue to visit this place whenever we can and if at home times are tough we just close our eyes and imagine our "Happy place" secrets!
Dont Delay book in with Secrets you wont regret a second.

Situated in Montville this place is amazing for romantic getaways, we always leave feeling revitalised. We have stayed here twice, the first time was when my Husband proposed - amazing! The room was set up beautifully with rose petals, so much care had gone into it. The owners are lovely and nothing is ever to much trouble for them. The breakfast hampers are delicious and the deck swing is very relaxing just to sit and look out at the views. It honestly feels like you're the only couple staying at this place, it's very private.

Room Tip: I would recommend the 'Secrets' cabin - even though it is the most expensive and books out i...
