Can't say enough about Ochre House...have stayed here on a yoga retreat several times and love it more each time. With six bedrooms, you have your quiet space but then you have large gathering areas to meet for meals, presentations, games, yoga whatever. There's a comfy sitting area of chairs/sofas to read, chat and socialize. We have had our retreat catered by Lisa on three occasions and the food is healthy, delicious and plentiful. We've also cooked ourselves as the kitchen has all the necessary utensils. There's a fantastic selection of books, especially those of a local flavour. Hiking in the area is popular as the views overlooking the ocean are outstanding. AND there are beautiful, sandy beaches within a very short drive. Orchre House...a real gem for a large crowd;-)
A wonderful location with a view of the ocean. We were blown away with the quality & coziness of this place. Bright, spacious rooms that will exceed your expectations. Fully stocked kitchen, laundry, games room & a deck that overlooks the horseshoe and fire pit. We hosted a birthday party for 45 with plenty of room for tables and mingling. Thanks you Lisa for being a fabulous hostess. Hope to visit again.
My eight sisters and I gathered at Ochre House Retreat for a two-night celebration to commemorate birthdays past, present, and future. The accommodation was excellent. The beds were comfortable, the 5 bathrooms were very convenient, and the kitchen contained all the utensils and cookware we needed to prepare our own meals. We enjoyed all the conveniences offered: the bbq, the firepit, the garden, etc. I would definitely recommend Ochre House Retreat to anyone looking for a great place to stay. The beach at Northern Bay Sands is only a 5-minute drive away and there are lots of other places to visit and to obtain any items required for your stay.
This place is fabulous. There were 6 of us for the week, and 8 of us for 5 days of those days. Plenty of room for 5 women working in the kitchen and we could all eat together at the dining room table(and there was even another leaf to add to the table). Beds were very comfortable, and the 4 baths had only one couple and a single sharing the main bath. There is everything you could ever need in the kitchen and we had most of our meals here. Fresh flowers were a very pleasant surprise. We used the fresh herb garden to prepare our local fish dinner. These owners think of everything, and it is evident theat they continue to make improvements by adding new gardens and the deck. Would recommend this place to anyone and everyone! My only negative comment is that it is very difficult to find in the dark. Two of us drove by a couple of times before we found the driveway the first night we arrived. But after that, everything was wonderful!
