My daughter arranged for all of us (4) to stay here. It's a basic but fabulous location. We all stayed in a two roomed suite. It was close the the Dorrigo national park as well as the small town of Dorrigo. Deer run along the enclosure & there are superb views all around. There are amazing sunrises with views looking out towards Coffs Harbour. The owners provide a lovely breakfast in the main house. It's well worth a stay here.

Room Tip: Be prepared to get up early to catch the sunrise.

Great place to stay, very helpful owners gave great advice on activities in the area. Room was comfortable and clean. Located very close to the National Park with loads of great walks and waterfalls. Just be prepared for leeches when it is wet!!!

First the location is ideal for exploring the national parks in the area. The accommodation is exceptional the rooms are spacious well equipped and very clean, The hosts are very welcoming and are very attentive but at the same time allow you to relax and feel the ambiance of the place which in typical Aussie style is laid back

Room Tip: Any they all have a great view

I travelled around a bit in Australia as I am from Germany. Stayed in this wonderful place for only 3 nights. Its definitely a place to stay longer than that at. The owners are the most wonderful, welcoming, helpful and accomodating guys I met in Australia. The restaurant offers delicious meals, excellent wines and wonderful desserts. The rooms are spacious, extremly tastefully furnished, clean, comfy and all with a stunning view! Breakfast (included) was terrific with fresh fruit and yoghurt additionally to all the "normal" food you´d expect. It is definitely THE PLACE TO STAY AT when you want to explore the surrounding rainforests, waterfalls and nature walks. I definitely recommend this wonderful place! Thank you very much for everything Wayne and Phil, xxx Jenni

It is as good as it looks in the photos & website. Located in the Dorrigo mountain with view a lovely lush green garden in front of the verandah of your room.

We've booked for two family rooms and check in was easy and owner wss very friendly. Despite a busy time during Xmas Holiday, he took the time to tell us about the nearby attractions, things to be aware of such as bugs and wildlife nearby.

The room is nicely decorated and spacious inside. Proper kitchen with sink and table and chairs for 4 people. Beds are comfy and bathroom newly renovated with rain shower head. Very clean and neat inside. Free wi-fi available

The kids were delighted to see the deers and horses nearby. The continential breakfast was great and come with choices of fresh fruit, yogart & juices as well.

Both families enjoy the stay and we'll definitely be back again.
