We stayed 2 nights at Wattle Point Retreat. It is really a nice place to stay and to rest. Due to Covid we could not use the pool but the cottage was reall nice: - amazing view on the lake - kangaroos in the garden with provided food for them or for the birds - BBQ - everything you need in the house Very clean The sunset is incredible on the lake. We loved this place and we will try to come back !
We recently attended a wedding and stayed the night in a 10-bed unit with friends. The unit was roomy with couches and comfy beds, 2 bathrooms, laundry facilities a dining room and small kitchen is all one would need. No wifi so it really is a place to get away from it all. I like the fact you can use canoes, bikes and the spa for free as part of your nightly rate. The kangaroos are friendly and will happily take food out of your hand. Nice and easy waterfront access for swimming, fishing and more. Overall a great place to spend a night or two
We loved that all the amenities were free. We stayed in Dargo Lodge which had all the comforts of home. The kangaroos came up to our deck while we looked out on the water over breakfast. We were the only ones in the indoor pool. We loved getting out in the canoes
The property and staff were excellent....and the wildlife on the property was out of this world amazing. Waking up to kangaroos on your porch was such an experience. The fireplace at the lodge was also lovely and made the overall experience very cosy. Oh and did I mention the views were just incredible. Super stunning! However, the condition of the Steamer Lodge was a little run down with rusty taps in showers, dead insects all over the place (bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and in wardrobe) and rusty cutlery. the bathrooms and bedding felt like a budget hotel, instead of a premium room which cost us $245 per night. And to top things off, I found dead bugs in the towels and in the bed (so it didn't feel very clean). The bed and pillows were very uncomfortable and we got no sleep while being there, which was a huge shame considering the price we paid. We would definitely come back if they did some minor works and upgrades to this particular Steamer lodge and the overall place as even the pool and spa all needed some TLC and upgrades (with rust and cracks etc). Overall it was a lovely place but it could be much better! I feel it was over priced for what we got, or perhaps we paid just for the view alone? Anyway, we made the most of everything (although we could have done without the dead bugs especially in our bed and towels).…
What an absolutely amazing place to stay. Quiet bushland setting. The accommodation was fantastic and clean with everything you need. This was our fifth visit over 20 years. Many memories when the kids were young and they loved going back to Wattle Point. Kangaroos, Kookaburras and Birds. The cottage was very modern, well maintained and luxurious. Wish we had longer holidays to stay and relax for another week. The heated indoor pool, kyaks and fishing a big plus in between playing board games and spending time as a family. Hope to go back again soon. Love what you have done to the place.
