“Perfect Destress Location”
Reviewed June 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Candlebark Retreat is a beautiful cottage situated just outside of Beechworth. It is peaceful and has stunning views of the vista. Excellent place for a getaway. Fleur and Digby were great hosts. The cottage feels like you are visiting a friend's place. Homely and cozy.

“Comfort. Cosiness. Peace!”
Reviewed May 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A lovely clean getaway cottage, set up to make you feel at home (unlike the sterility of most motels). Fleur was a wonderful host and took our request into consideration gladly. A gorgeous place to chill out and relax and if you want to do the touristy things in Beechworth etc, you are not far away. Recommend it highly!

“Fantastic, can't wait to go back.”
Reviewed January 3, 2016 for a stay in November 2015

Candlebark Retreat was exactly what we were after for a weekend away. It is very pretty, comfortable, clean and peaceful. The cottage felt very homely with interesting decor and plenty to keep us busy- a full bookshelf and lovely selection of local wines! Unfortunately our stay was not long enough to make use of the gorgeous walks throughout the property and cosy fire pit. Fleur was very welcoming but did not intrude on our privacy in any way. We hope to be back soon and have already recommended this retreat to our friends!
