“A lovely house in a peaceful location”
Reviewed 24 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed in the Lodge and found it to be comfortable, clean, full of character and spacious. It was surrounded by beautiful gardens and our generous host invited us to pick flowers, fruit and vegetables The fresh vegetables and berries were delicious. We enjoyed games of bocce and outdoor chess. Each night we sat out in the garden to have a barbecue dinner and then to chat over glasses of wine. One night we had a special dinner prepared by a chef recommended by who was a Genevieve was a gracious host. She even made our little dog feel welcome. It was a wonderful place for a family reunion.

“A slice of heaven”
Reviewed 7 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We spent a week at Plantrees at the end of January 2017. We had a family gathering, all ages ranging from 8 adults to 2 children under 7. This has to be one of the best properties I have stayed in anywhere.
It felt like a home away from home with every comfort you could think of provided. The gardens are spectacular, and the pool is wonderful. We swam daily and walked the gardens, we gathered produce (thank you Genevieve) to add to our meals, listened to the prolific bird life, frogs and cicadas, and just relaxed.
Very comfy bed, lots of chairs/ lounges, huge dining table. Plenty of room to escape outdoors with loads of different little seating areas hidden away. Deep verandahs all round the house, even a hammock! Bliss!
The main downstairs room in the house is aircondioned by a central reverse cycle unit, but upstairs has only ceiling fans. It got very hot one night, but this was a minor glitch.
No wifi in the house, though I believe it is available in the Gatehouse suite. Network coverage was patchy.
All facilities in the property were brilliant and I can highly recommend a holiday here. Try the Stanley pub down the road for a superb meal.
Thank you for a wonderful week. We made many happy memories.

Thank you Judith. It was such a pleasure to host your family holiday at Planetrees. The Wifi is underway for the Lodge now we have NBN. You are right that it is available in the Suite. As we very rarely get a very hot night fans have sufficed for upstairs rooms. In fact turning the main fan on helps circulate the cool air. But I may not have mentioned this. I greatly appreciate your feedback especially as you manage properties yourself. I hope to see you again soon. Best wishes.Genevieve

“What a great place for a group of friends”

A group of friends went up to Stanley and had a great weekend. There was 10 of us, so we filled both the house and the separate studio apartment, both of which are stylish, inviting and spacious. The architecture of the house is interesting, there is heaps of space to sit back and relax, and the kitchen has everything you could need. The garden is spectacular and the new natural pool would be great in summer. The weather was lousy but the coonara kept the whole house warm. The warm apple and fig cake upon arrival just topped it all off. This was our third visit, there will be a fourth (ps; The Stanley Pub down the road is a must!)

“Home away from home”

Planetrees has 4 large bedrooms, so it is suitable for a group.
We stayed with our 2 year old and 2 couples.
A beautiful place with a warm, relaxing atmosphere.
The natural swimming pool is something special, but the garden setting is gorgeous.
The communal area is great for relaxing and having a chat and a glass of wine.
The kitchen is well equipped (although we ate out).
A superb place to stay for a small group.

We stayed in this incredible house for 3 nights with my family consisting of 3 adult children and a 13 yr old. Having lived overseas for the past 10 years, we were really looking forward to relaxation in a quintessential Australian setting...and bot, did we luck out with our discovery of Planetrees. The lodge itself is impeccable, cosy, and very well appointed in every way. The outside eating area is amazing, great place to sit and eat, and take in the gardens that really have to been seen to be appreciated, photos do not do justice. The pool area...wow, kids loved it. At night you can hear the frogs blurping away in the reeds that surround it. .Only 3kms from High Grove berry farm ( a must-do), and 8km from Beechworth and all that it offers. We did not get to sample the lunch at Stanley Pub, but it looks great and is only 5 mins walk from the Lodge.

Genevieve is a gracious host, and has thought of everything. We have stayed in high-end places in Italy, France, and many other locations, and simply Planetrees is top of the list if you are looking for relaxation in one of the most beautiful regions of Australia.
