“Best Corporate Retreat ever!!!”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in November 2014

person found this review helpful

My colleagues and I are always looking at the best value, best location and best accommodation for our yearly corporate retreats. We were struggling to find a suitable venue when I came across Horizon Mudgee. I made an enquiry and early the next day I had a response and after settling on a date, the excitement set in.

When we arrived at the house it was then that we all knew we were in for a treat! What an amazing location - peaceful, private but so close (10 minute drive) into Mudgee town centre. The infinity pool was amazing and had good use with the warmer weather. The facilities inside were outstanding - bedrooms were a great size, the living areas were well laid out and the kitchen area was a standout with all the facilities you need to cook up a storm!

We can't wait to go back again and might even let our wives enjoy some of this luxury next time!

“Amazing”

This property was absolutely amazing! We travelled from Dubbo with 3 other couples
(8 people in total), we spent 2 nights in total. This property is everything you could ever ask for, we were all so excited when we first arrived, checking out the entire house, each bedroom was styled and decorated beautifully, all bedrooms had views and the remainder of the house was just perfect. The first night we lit the fire, stayed in and cooked up a storm, we sat at one of the beautiful dining tables and shared a three course meal together, the kitchen was very well equipped. We took in the breathtaking views the following morning, we had already organised to go out in town on Saturday night but looking back we could have easily stayed in at Horizon again just to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and sunset. We truly did not want to leave this place, my husband and I have stayed at many different places on our travels and this is one of the best!!!! Perfect place to catch up with friends or family.

The trip from Sydney to Horizon was all part of the wonderful weekend. Easy drive up with lovely scenery along the way. Although we missed the property by a hundred metres (the GPS does not lead you exactly to the property so bear this in mind - and the sign was a bit small as the other reviewer noted) the kids were thrilled to see the cows on the driveway towards the property. The cows did not care less but we were so excited to drive past cows so close!
Upon arrival, we excitedly opened up the door and was presented with the most beautiful view with a house to match.
Each bedroom provided a wonderful view so no one really needed to fight for the "best" room. 3 bathrooms - so no fighting over them either! Everything was provided. All you needed was to bring your food and we ended up cooking most nights we stayed there. The kitchen was well equipped. Mudgee is known for its fine produce so we did go out for lunch and dinner once but our highlight was still staying at Horizon and cooking up our own meals.
Even though the days were warm, the first night was still a bit chilly so we enjoyed the fire.
Evenings were laid back with books to enjoy. Everyone was at ease.
The house is in some ways, simple in design but so sophisticated in how it maximises the view and light. The furnishings ware modern and practical. We loved the art work around the house.
My elderly parents appreciated that there were no stairs and loved the peacefulness even with their rowdy grandkids around.
Horizon is 10 min drive from Mudgee and about 3 hours drive from Dubbo zoo. We enjoyed the zoo but looked forward to just hanging out at the house.
The pool was chilly but we still had a dip! There was nothing like swimming at that pool with the rolling hills in the background.
The kids loved the surrounding yard. With plenty of grass to roll around in.
Apart from a slight power issue which was rectified quickly, we had a wonderful stay at Horizon and will be our first choice if we ever up at that region again.
Gail, the manager of the property is passionate about making this property the best in Mudgee and I think she is on her way!
I truly recommend Horizon for larger families or multiple couples. You will instantly feel the stress disappear!

As long as the stress disappeared Horizon has done its job! And yes the level floorplan is perfect for our older guests and we know having bought up our three kids at Horizon that they just love the space! And don't we all love the views. Thank-you for staying with us and come again.

“Fantastic Escape”
Reviewed 15 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Horizon is a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom home with 2 large interior living areas and an external BBQ area.
It is furnished to cater for large families/groups in comfort and has absolutely everything you need except for food and drink. This includes all cooking and glassware, an extensive library and even toys for the kids.
There are magnificent views from all bedrooms and livings areas and the pool.
A fabulous escape.

Thank you we are glad you appreciated the small details. We lived there for 3 years prior to leaving. It was our family home - hence it should be well appointed. Down to every plate. Please come again!

“Stunning......”
Reviewed 13 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This house is a brilliant escape! The views are stunning & the house is a cutting edge, architectural masterpiece. Located only minutes from Mudgee, this house will not be popular with the wineries or restaurants, because you will not want to leave! We had high hopes of tackling the bulk of the Mudgee wineries, but failed utterly, the house & the peace & quiet were too good to resist!
It is the ideal venue for friends to gather & cook up a storm & this is what we did. So stock the car with great produce & grab some flagship wines from your cellar, this is the perfect retreat for a couple of families or 4 couples.

I agree stay home and eat. We have some great relationships with local chefs that will "cater in". We also have our own resident Horizon chef that is very accommodating to a wide range of tastes. She's fantastic. Just let us know what you are after and we can put forward some menus. But do visit our friends at the vineyards... they supply the matching and necessary vino!
