As you weave your way down the tree lined driveway you pass our two life-sized bronze deer that watch over this very special space. The Lodge’s interior has been modelled on a traditional Canadian hunting lodge and chalet, with the central lounge focusing on a huge stone fireplace and soaring cathedral ceilings, which brings the ambience to the rest of the lodge.

Surreal!

Rustic Serene Retreat

Our group stayed on your beautiful property for a 40th nursing reunion . We had lots of room and we’re all really comfortable. All of our group loved the property and many commented they would have like to stay for a week. The girls commented on how great the showers were. The wine fridge in the dining room was fantastic. The kitchen made meal preparations a breeze. Your staff were prompt and very helpful re any queries and we really appreciated the early access to drop off food supplies given the unexpected hot weather. Overall your property and staff made our weekend a huge success. Thank you. From all the girls Auburn District October 1976 Reunion.
