Loved everything there, was quite relaxing we both enjoyed our stay, staff are very friendly and the grounds are well kept and looking very tidy, awesome place.."Trip Advisor
The owner has done an amazing job of pulling together the remnants of an old farm and presenting a rural, rustic but modern facility. I've stayed in both the rooms and cabins and find them to be of top quality with great furnishings and finishes. Whether it's a cute little cabin overlooking the dam or a king size room to share with a friend - all are lovely to stay in. The menu in the restaurant is always diverse with much local produce on offer. Wines are varied both local and international. The staff are usually locals so they have great knowledge and are very pleasant to talk to. There are a number of activities you can participate in - most notably the golf. But there are also places off the property to visit locally within Acheron, Alexandra, Buxton, Taggerty, Thornton and Eildon which are very nice. You can check in with local providers to raft the Goulburn River or perhaps go abseiling, rockclimbing, bushwalking or just scenic touring. I'll probably continue to visit this hideaway in the east."Trip Advisor
Very well set out in a beautiful setting. Our cabin was opposite the lake which was beautiful. The service and the people in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. Lots to do in Alexandra and Snobs Creek waterfall and Lake Eildon. Also spent some time in Marysville and Healsville. The Steaphansons Waterfall in Marysville was lovely."Trip Advisor
