After an adventurous and tiring 5 day hike in the central plateau, we where fortunate to have booked 2 nights with Sean and Rosemary at jackeys Marsh. They kindly allowed us to place our extra valuables / bags that we didn't want left in our car for days . Sean had prepared a wonderfully fresh, wholesome 3 course meal made...

Stars if I could. Stunning location in the Western Tiers. Beautiful lodge with 3 exquisite bedrooms all on-suite. The birds are wonderful and expect to see wallabies and pademelons in the evenings. Lovely walks from the lodge. Sean and Rosemary grow organic fruits and vegetables on-site. I strongly recommend you take the optional three course evening meal which Sean offers....

We would highly recommend this lodge. Sean and Rosemary were extremely welcoming which meant for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. I wish we had been able to stay more than 2 nights ! Service was excellent. Good, wholesome home cooking prepared using ingredients from the impressive vegetable garden - a highlight for me was the fresh duck eggs for...

Sean and Rosemary's generosity, knowledge and care for their guests makes the entire experience very special and memorable. You will have amazing meals (the dinner option is an absolute must) and Sean's guided walk through part of the region's stunning World Heritage Rain Forrest is incredibly insightful. Stay 4 nights for the ultimate respite from city living.

My partner and I stayed for two nights at the lodge and had an exceptional experience. Rosemary and Sean are the very best of hosts and the lodge is a social place indeed. Sean's meals are absolutely delicious- he goes above and beyond and it is clear that his meals are an act of love! On the second night my...

This place is unbelievable, especially for lovers of nature and ecology and good food. We had figured that we'd enjoy being in a somewhat remote, small lodging at the base of the Great Western Tiers, and we were met with what I can only describe as an incredible experience that went above and beyond all of our expectations. This place...

My wife and I stayed at this beautiful, cozy lodge for a single night in late September of this year. This place was recommended to us by a relative who knows the owners, Sean and Rosemary. The remote area where the lodge is located has all sorts of interesting wildlife, including wallabies, possums, and many colorful birds. There are fields...

Four of us stayed one very pleasant night after a friend's recommendation. Unfortunately family commitments prevented us staying much longer ! We were warmly welcomed by the Owners/Hosts Sean & Rosemary over a great coffee. The 2 rooms allocated were of a high standard, with all facilities provided. Five star gourmet dinner & breakfast were prepared in house. The lodge...

Highly recommend. My partner and I stayed just the one night, a random decision to have a night away after exploring the Great Lakes area. Very impressed, happy with our decision. Rosemary and Sean are welcoming, have heaps of knowledge of the surroundings and are great to have a chat to. I can't talk enough about the food that Sean...

We loved our short stay at this truly magnificent environment. Rosemary and Sean are perfect hosts and there is much to admire in the way they run this unique enterprise in such a sustainable and sensitive way. The setting is dramatic with sweeping views to the Great Western Tiers and surrounded by enchanted forests. It was a real pleasure to...
