The Hunter Valley Lodge and Retreat is located in the heart of the wine region with marvelous views and minutes from absolutely everything the Hunter Valley has to offer. This amazing lodge boasts 11 spacious bedrooms and 8 bathrooms accommodating up to 33 guests in comfort and style. With magnificent wrap around verandahs, a refreshing swimming pool and a relaxing jacuzzi, a huge games room with a billiard/ pool table and table tennis, a bocce court, an impressive entertainment and sun deck with stunning views to the Broken Back Range, the Lodge is the perfect solution for large groups that want to spend time together but also enjoy their own private space. As you weave your way down the tree lined driveway you pass our two life-sized bronze stags that watch over this very special space. The Lodge's interior has been modelled on a traditional Canadian Hunting Lodge and Chalet, with the central lounge focusing on a huge stone fireplace and soaring cathedral ceilings, which provide the ambiance to the rest of the lodge. The main lodge features a modern semi commercial gourmet kitchen with quality appliances including two large ovens, two dishwashers and absolutely everything you could want or need to create your own MasterChef meal. The large dining area has a magnificent custom made oversized table and offers a relaxed atmosphere where guests can dine together and enjoy the peace and serenity of this beautiful setting. There are two BBQs available. The Retreat which is adjacent to the Lodge has its own brand new kitchen and a lounge area plus a further outside entertainment area. This unique property is perfect for large groups of friends and family and also for small weddings and corporate off sites. You can relax on the deck of an evening and hear the roar of the lions, who are our newest neighbours at the Hunter Valley Zoo. Surreal! More
