    Would love to come back in the cooler months sometime. The place was clean and tidy. There definitely was attention to detail. It is quiet and we came just in time to catch the sunset and it was so beautiful!

    We spent a weekend in early April in the two bedroom retreat. There is nothing pretentious about the retreat as you drive up to it and it looks quite small from the outside. Once inside it’s 2-3 times bigger than you imagine and it’s a...More

    Everything about this was perfect - the rooms, the location, the hostess. We used this as a base for touring the Hunter Valley vineyards and it was a beautiful retreat to come back to at the end of the day.
