I had the best stay at this retreat! I will be returning soon. Suzie and Ken are amazing hosts with a great cottage. If you don’t stay here you are a fool. I visited a few wineries and had a great tasting down the road. I also went on a beautiful walk around.

Beautiful views and setting. We have stayed in the Hunter a lot and this would have to be one of the best views. The owners don’t skip a beat and the accomodation has everything you need, they are terrific hosts. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone wanting the perfect stay in the Hunter.
This property is absolutely gorgeous. We spent just a weekend but it definitely impressed. We felt very spoilt by the owners: excellent hospitality, great service, care of details. The cottage was spotless, fridge full of goodies, they provide all you need. In the morning (very early though) we had kangaroos having a little wrestle on the lawn in front of the porch. Private electric barbecue (that either was very clean or we were the first ones to ever used it!!) enjoying the sunset colours. If you’re after a romantic and peaceful gateway this is the place. We will definitely be back!
We had the most incredible stay at Berenbell. The Lodge is fantastic, spread over two spacious floors. Comfy beds and a great living room area perfect for wine and cheese after a long day at the wineries. The location is stunning and there are outdoor tables that allow you to eat your breakfast in the sun overlooking the vineyards and hills. Very close to all our favourite vineyards too, so you could walk between a fair few if you don’t have any other transport. Most noteworthy though is the fantastic welcome we got by the lovely hosts. They went over and beyond to make us feel welcome and to tell us about the Valley. There was a complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us in the fridge on arrival and a bit of breakfast for the morning. When the hosts learned we were going to spend the second morning there for brekky they treated us to sparkling wine and more orange juice so that we could make mimosas. Extra bonus is the cute doggo Ginger who lives on the grounds. She is super friendly but likes to keep her distance. Can’t really see us staying anywhere else in the valley after visiting Berenbell. We’ll be back!…
