I accidentally came across this place with a web search when looking for somewhere to stay to break up the drive from Victoria to SA. So glad I did! Was the perfect place to relax for a couple of days with young kids, just roaming as far as the eye could see and sitting by the fire with no TV or computers (and barely any phone reception). The facilities are brilliant with quality, abundant kitchen equipment, lovely linen on the beds and even an outdoor fire pit with a view. We were there in the middle of winter, so the only negative was that the pine lodge is not sealed and we were only warm when sitting directly in front of the fire, and had to sleep in the beds inside sleeping bags, with beanies on - but that was sort of part of the adventure. The place could be considered quite luxurious with a bit of work to seal it from the elements. We had the place to ourselves, except for the welcoming property owners, but we are looking forward to returning with a group which would be superb in summer.
