Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.

The perfect escape
We thoroughly enjoyed our few days in this idyllic setting. The house is perfectly suited to all groups, large or small, and you could easily stay for an extended break - as every comfort and convenience is provided. Quite simply - you could not want for more. Oh, and the fur babies loved it too.

Lovely and clean country homestead - perfect for family getaway
Recently stayed at the homestead for an extended family holiday. It proved to be the perfect getaway - large enough to accommodate seven adults and an infant, wheelchair accessible, very clean, and lots of fun with the wood fire pizza oven, hot tub and visiting cows and lambs. Nice and close to townships for day trips too. Highly recommend the country house retreat!

Peaceful retreat
Wonderful location close to Metung hotel and shops and restaurants, clubs and shops at the Lakes. The cottage had all, we wanted for nothing. It was a great getaway for 4 ladies. The hot tub was amazing. Kim and Steve made sure we had everything we needed. Keep up the good work. Will be recommending it to family and friends.

RUINED FOR LIFE!!
Will I ever be able to find a treasure like this again? Myself and 8 girlfriends have just returned from the most fabulous stay at Country House Retreat to celebrate my 60th birthday, and we could not fault it. Our hosts Kim and Steve have covered every base imagineable to ensure their guests have the most relaxed, comfortable and informative stay. It starts with their comprehensive website, great communication, suggestions for activities in the local area, offerings of catering with partnering local businesses and then continues with their personalised welcome, immaculate presentation of their spacious, comfortable and character filled homestead and the provision of every creature comfort that you can think of, except say peeled grapes, and I reckon if you asked for those, they would probably provide them!! We lived on the outdoor deck, taking in the tranquil ambience of our surroundings, the view of the dam and the sound of bird song, sheep and the occasional cow. We barbecued, we made pizza and we late night spa-ed. And when we felt like a little bit more action, we ventured to Lakes Entrance and Metung - such short distances away. We also ventured to Jetty Road Retreat to take advantage of the reciprocal rights there and kayaked and swam. The cabins there were fabulous too, with such a peaceful and beautiful perspective. Hospitality is hard yakka. We take our hats off to you for the brilliant job that you have done in creating a Home away from Home. Thankyou once again for providing such an accommodating and beautiful environment for us to celebrate and relax. I'm punching the air that I made the choice of staying at CHR and I could not recommend to others highly enough. WE ALL LOVED IT!!!

Fantastic family and pet friendly get away
We had the best time!! Kim and Steve where incredibly friendly and helpful! There were 4 adults and 5 kids. The kids had a ball, feeding baby goats, spending time in the spa, playing table tennis, exploring, meeting the sheep and playing on the swing. The setting and amenities are second to none. We will definitely come back!!! Absolutely loved it!!!!

Couldn’t beat it.
The location is fantastic being out of town, but near enough to Lakes Entrance and Metung. The house is perfect for a large family with bedrooms separated adequately. As the night temperatures were around zero it was wonderful to have a never ending supply of wood to feed the fire which, warmed the whole house. The added option of having dinner supplied on our arrival date is a lovely touch. The Spa was set to perfect temperature and so convenient. Finally the warmth and advice we received from Kim was second to none.

Pet friendly person friendly piece of paradise
This is the second time that we have stayed here and once again we were not disappointed. The first time we were there was with other family members and our dogs and was in summer. This time was in winter and bought a different ambiance which we loved. It was just the two of us and our fur babies. The puppies are well catered for and are safe and sound even if we did have to leave them for a short period of time. Close to Lakes entrance and the wonderful little township of Metung. The pizza oven, the spa, all of the amenities, the fully equipped kitchen, including a slow cooker which made for a lovely soup for cold days was provided. But what made it even more spectacular was the fireplace which once cranked up (and it doesnt take long) heats the entire house but they also have the reverse cycle as well just in case. The lovely addition now is wifi and it works very well. The little things like luxurious bathrobes, lots of firewood and lovely owners who will always let you know if you are going to have neighbors for a night or two (cows and sheep) are always there if you need them and just a spectacular house to holiday in. With lovely day trips on offer as well this little piece of paradise I would love to keep a secret but I need to share. No matter if you have pets or not you will love this place. You can do as little or as much as you like and everyone is catered for kids, adults, accessible for wheelchairs or disabled persons and of course four legged lovelies. We will be back Kim and Steve and thank you again for such a lovely stay.

Thank you Kate for such a comprehensive and truly wonderful review. I'm so pleased you could enjoy the range of amenities on offer, which made for a cosy winter retreat by the sounds of it! Soup in winter is a necessity we feel (lthough I've never thought to use my slow cooker - great tip!). And great to know the wifi worked well for you. We understand that whilst many people are seeking a digital detox when they stay, it's still nice to have this available when you're on holidays. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience of Country House Retreat, and its ideal location for relaxing and exploring the Gippsland Lakes region. See you all next time! Kim & Steve.

Tranquil rural stay.....truly relaxing!
We stayed at Country House retreat for a week. This well appointed home, with everything you need for a relaxing get away . The wood-fired pizza oven, hot tub, push bikes and games all made for fun times without having to go too far. (Metung is only 5 minutes down the road and Lakes Entance only 15 minutes along the road.) One, still, clear winters night we sat around the fire pit, star-gazing and enjoying a glass of red....doesn't get much better than that. The property is set back off Nungurner road on lovely rolling pasture (cattle, sheep birds and wildlife in abundance) next door to the owners Kim and Stephen. (they were heading away on holidays when we stayed and Stephen popped over to ensure all was okay and to give us briefing on "operating pizza oven" and "catching yabbies in the dam"), thanks Stephen. We were sad to leave even after a week. Look forward to staying again.

Thank you for leaving a 5 star review for our property. It's wonderful to read that you had everthing you needed for a fun family holiday, without having to venture too far from our tranquil retreat. I'd have to agree that one of life's simple pleasures is sitting fireside with glass of red in hand, under a blanket of stars. I hope you were able to enjoy some yabbies on those wood fired pizzas, and we look forward to hosting you again! Thank you, Kim and Steve.

Beautiful and serene, accessible accommodation
Wonderful stay at this gem of a house. The ambience and amenities make it enjoyable and accessible for everyone! It suited our family perfectly as one member is in a wheelchair and requires ramps and special equipment such as a portable hoist and hi-Lo bed which is provided. The outdoor fire drum was a hit with everyone on the chilly nights as were the beautiful outdoor lights and hot tub! Add to this the wonderful hosts and lovely views of surrounding farm land and easy access to wheelchair friendly scenic walks, and the lakes only a few kilometres away. You definitely can't go wrong with this beautifully presented property. Can't wait to be back!
