We recently spent a 3 day mini-break at the home of Jeannette and Bruce at Lily Pily Country House. We had the centre suite of the 3 suites available with a nice deck overlooking the river. As we were there in Winter, it was nice to have an air conditioner in the room, plus electric heater in the bathroom. We found the ambiance of the property and surrounds to be very relaxing and serene. On arrival we were treated to a nice afternoon tea in the lounge area where a wood fire had been lit. The lounge area includes nice comfy chairs and TV for guests viewing. The breakfast provided by the hosts are really first class and they do go to a lot of trouble in the presentation of the breakfasts provided to their guests. There is a vast array of fruit for selection and choices for your hot cooked breakfast, followed by either tea or coffee, all served in the spacious dining room. In the Summer time, the breakfast would most likely be served on the outdoor terrace facing the river. It was nice to be able to stroll through the property down to the riverside where there is a cabana for guests to sit and relax and admire the river and bush views. The property, both house and surrounds are presented in immaculate condition and are a credit to the owners. The only negatives we found with the suites were no TV in the individual suites, lack of hanging space, and no full length mirror. Other than that, we were very happy with our stay.
