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.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Fantastic family retreat
This was our second stay with Kim and Stephen with the same group of friends and family (consisting of 6 adults and 5 children under the age of 5). This time we stayed for a week and had the most loveliest of times. Even better than last time (thanks to the games in the shed :)). We love the tranquility and the home away from home feeling, the pizza oven, the spa, the hammocks, the game room, the little town of Metung (make sure to have brunch/lunch at The Smiling Chef Cafe) and the close drive to Lakes Entrance. Plenty of fun stuff to do with the kids like yabby fishing, mini golf (in LE), bushwalking, play park in Metung (or a bigger one in Bairnsdale), and just running around the house or doing yoga on the terrace.

Thank you so much for your review Lenkki and we're delighted to hear your week long stay was the loveliest time as returning guests. We've considered our own 'wish-list' when booking a family holiday to ensure that families are well catered for, and parents can also relax and enjoy themselves. I'm glad your crew enjoyed the new games shed while you could enjoy some yoga on the terrace - divine! We look forward to hosting your group again when you need a little zen time. Namaste, Kim

Perfect for all
Kim and Steve have nailed it with the Country Road retreat. Located just 10 mins from Lakes Entrance we booked in for a week with our dogs and were so pleased when we arrived. The house was magnificently presented and includes enough room for 10 guests (we had three adults and 2 small dogs). It was spotlessly clean with every amenity you could need and the gardens are immaculate and fully ( and I mean fully) enclosed. But the bonus was the dog run. It was 5 star for our fur babies. Very well shaded, very tall puppy friendly fence with a large kennel and lovely luscious green grass and large enough even if you had two or three big dogs you would be happy. This meant that we could explore even more of the local area than normal. They have a fabulous deck with a pizza oven, bbq and spa and the other wonderful thing was they have also made all of the house accessible for people with disabilities they have been thoughtful for everyone. Thank you Kim and Steve I didn't want to write this review because now everyone else will know about it but happy to share. We all had a ball and we will certainly return.

Thank you for leaving such a superb review! We are really delighted to receive this feedback and recognition of the all abilities and pet friendly nature of our property. I'm thrilled your fur babies found the facilities to be 5 star! There's certainly lots of lovely spaces for pets to roam and explore, and be safe and secure when you're ready to do some exploring of your own. We are looking forward to hosting you again. Kind regards, Kim

Country bliss
Stayed with my other half. The property exceeded our expectations. The team go above and beyond to make guests welcome. The property is peaceful and in an authentic Australian rural setting with the lakes nearby. The spa under the stars was magic. Furnished beautifully and the main bathroom is stunning. Would definitely stay again, next time with a large group.

Perfect getaway in rural location in the heart of the Gippsland Lakes
We had an amazing stay completed by thoughtful touches. We had brilliant weather which meant we made full use of the outside pizza oven, huge peaceful deck with fairy lights and of course, the spa. Highly recommended.

Great Spot
Booked two nights for three families had one in a wheelchair and one on crutches. Spacious, well appointed house with excellent facilities for wheelchairs. Quiet spot minutes from Metung or Lakes. Pizza oven is great but the yabbies must have been on hols elsewhere. Recommended to all.

A relaxing, comfortable and fantastic break away
Our family travelled from Sydney and met up with friends who travelled from Melbourne. The house was spacious and well appointed with two living spaces and a large kitchen/ dining space. With 2 families in the house, we had more than enough space for our families. Beds were very comfortable with beautiful linen, a beautiful ensuite, kitchen had everything we needed and we enjoyed the spa! The pizza oven outside was great and we also cooked a roast in it. Location was beautiful with dams, blossom trees and bush walks. We were also located near to Lakes Entrance for shopping, Metung for great coffee and close to other local attractions. We can't wait to stay again.

Thank you Belinda M for your wonderful review of Country House Retreat. We are so pleased your family and friends enjoyed your stay together and had everything you needed. The house is perfect for two families traveling together. And the wide open spaces and bush tracks to explore, there's alot for children (and pets) to enjoy on the property. We agree our location offers the best of both worlds, a great base to nearby attractions and amenities but a world away from the holiday crowds, and your own private space to relax and enjoy a taste of country life. We look forward to hosting you again on your next visit!
