“Tranquil rural stay.....truly relaxing!”
Reviewed July 7, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We stayed at Country House retreat for a week. This well appointed home, with everything you need for a relaxing get away . The wood-fired pizza oven, hot tub, push bikes and games all made for fun times without having to go too far. (Metung is only 5 minutes down the road and Lakes Entance only 15 minutes along the road.)
One, still, clear winters night we sat around the fire pit, star-gazing and enjoying a glass of red....doesn't get much better than that.
The property is set back off Nungurner road on lovely rolling pasture (cattle, sheep birds and wildlife in abundance) next door to the owners Kim and Stephen. (they were heading away on holidays when we stayed and Stephen popped over to ensure all was okay and to give us briefing on "operating pizza oven" and "catching yabbies in the dam"), thanks Stephen.
We were sad to leave even after a week. Look forward to staying again.

Thank you for leaving a 5 star review for our property. It's wonderful to read that you had everthing you needed for a fun family holiday, without having to venture too far from our tranquil retreat.
I'd have to agree that one of life's simple pleasures is sitting fireside with glass of red in hand, under a blanket of stars. I hope you were able to enjoy some yabbies on those wood fired pizzas, and we look forward to hosting you again! Thank you, Kim and Steve.

Fantastic family friendly country homestead with wheelchair access,very well equipped,plus pizza oven ,hot tub and a games area.The serenity of overlooking the green pastures with cattle or sheep grazing from a large verandah or being able to take a walk in the nearby bush make it a perfect country getaway.Nearby is Lakes Entrance and Metung for fishing or boating.Thank you Kim and Stephen for your wonderful hospitality.

“Beautiful and serene, accessible accommodation”
Reviewed May 9, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Wonderful stay at this gem of a house. The ambience and amenities make it enjoyable and accessible for everyone! It suited our family perfectly as one member is in a wheelchair and requires ramps and special equipment such as a portable hoist and hi-Lo bed which is provided. The outdoor fire drum was a hit with everyone on the chilly nights as were the beautiful outdoor lights and hot tub!
Add to this the wonderful hosts and lovely views of surrounding farm land and easy access to wheelchair friendly scenic walks, and the lakes only a few kilometres away. You definitely can't go wrong with this beautifully presented property. Can't wait to be back!

Even in the cooler months those outdoor aspects are so appealing, especially under a blanket of stars which we are so lucky to enjoy here. We look forward to hosting you and your family again on your next visit. Kind regards, Kim

“Fantastic family retreat”
Reviewed March 8, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This was our second stay with Kim and Stephen with the same group of friends and family (consisting of 6 adults and 5 children under the age of 5). This time we stayed for a week and had the most loveliest of times. Even better than last time (thanks to the games in the shed :)). We love the tranquility and the home away from home feeling, the pizza oven, the spa, the hammocks, the game room, the little town of Metung (make sure to have brunch/lunch at The Smiling Chef Cafe) and the close drive to Lakes Entrance.

Plenty of fun stuff to do with the kids like yabby fishing, mini golf (in LE), bushwalking, play park in Metung (or a bigger one in Bairnsdale), and just running around the house or doing yoga on the terrace.

Thank you so much for your review Lenkki and we're delighted to hear your week long stay was the loveliest time as returning guests. We've considered our own 'wish-list' when booking a family holiday to ensure that families are well catered for, and parents can also relax and enjoy themselves. I'm glad your crew enjoyed the new games shed while you could enjoy some yoga on the terrace - divine! We look forward to hosting your group again when you need a little zen time. Namaste, Kim

“Perfect for all”
Reviewed January 29, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Kim and Steve have nailed it with the Country Road retreat. Located just 10 mins from Lakes Entrance we booked in for a week with our dogs and were so pleased when we arrived. The house was magnificently presented and includes enough room for 10 guests (we had three adults and 2 small dogs). It was spotlessly clean with every amenity you could need and the gardens are immaculate and fully ( and I mean fully) enclosed. But the bonus was the dog run. It was 5 star for our fur babies. Very well shaded, very tall puppy friendly fence with a large kennel and lovely luscious green grass and large enough even if you had two or three big dogs you would be happy. This meant that we could explore even more of the local area than normal. They have a fabulous deck with a pizza oven, bbq and spa and the other wonderful thing was they have also made all of the house accessible for people with disabilities they have been thoughtful for everyone. Thank you Kim and Steve I didn't want to write this review because now everyone else will know about it but happy to share. We all had a ball and we will certainly return.

Thank you for leaving such a superb review! We are really delighted to receive this feedback and recognition of the all abilities and pet friendly nature of our property. I'm thrilled your fur babies found the facilities to be 5 star! There's certainly lots of lovely spaces for pets to roam and explore, and be safe and secure when you're ready to do some exploring of your own. We are looking forward to hosting you again.

Stayed with my other half. The property exceeded our expectations. The team go above and beyond to make guests welcome. The property is peaceful and in an authentic Australian rural setting with the lakes nearby. The spa under the stars was magic. Furnished beautifully and the main bathroom is stunning. Would definitely stay again, next time with a large group.
