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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
We had an amazing stay completed by thoughtful touches. We had brilliant weather which meant we made full use of the outside pizza oven, huge peaceful deck with fairy lights and of course, the spa. Highly recommended.
