This is an amazing property for a large group.

We had a party of 15 and there was plenty of space to come together and room to spread out for quieter times. It was spotless and very well equipped. The recommendation for a chef to prepare lunch onsite was excellent as we were celebrating a 90th birthday. The property is located off the main road and is surrounded by kangaroos in the morning and at night. Property Managers Hunter Valley Stays were very responsive to all our questions. Great choice!


Would highly recommend it for a group - it was perfect!

>The house was beautiful and had absolutely everything we needed. Its location was quite central to all the wineries and distilleries in a very scenic setting. Kangaroos in the yard in the morning. The rooms were lovely all with airconditioning, nice linen and towels. We had a fabulous time and really were lacking in nothing at all. 


Loved this property, very true to ad and was located in a peaceful yet easy to get to location from the winery's. Highly recommend, five stars.

A well designed home for a large group of friends with private facilities was a pleasant surprise and very well equipped kitchen made for a wonderful weekend of fine food and wine. Set in a beautiful area of the Hunter valley this was the ultimate weekend retreat. Thanks to the owners of this wonderful establishment ! We hope to be back again soon.

A great property with everything we needed for our family get together

We stayed here for our annual family weekend, 8 adults and 6 children. The house is very private and in a great location in the Hunter Valley. Branxton is only a 10 minute drive if you need to get supplies or enjoy a great lunch or dinner at the pub. The house is a good size for our family and adequate bedrooms and bathrooms for all to feel relaxed. The kitchen was also a good size with the basic needs from the pantry and all good cooking utensils. There are 2 living areas which helped with the amount of people. A good time had by all, thank you.

Wonderful stay!

Such a wonderful place to holiday with a group. Lovely, quiet surroundings, lots of beautiful, spacious living areas, comfortable beds and a large, practical kitchen and dining area. Five rooms with ensuites made it perfect for so many couples. We really enjoyed our stay at Wine Country Lodge!

Such a beautiful house in a great location - thank you for being awesome hosts and making our trip so seamless!

We would love to find an opportunity to visit again!

The house was beautiful but also family-friendly, and was perfect for our weekend getaway with a large group adults and kids. The pool, undercover outdoor area, games room and cubby house were all put to great use and the kitchen was really well equipped for a large group. We would love to find an opportunity to visit again! Hunter Valley Stays were fantastic to deal with and made the booking process a breeze.

Beautiful, well appointed home.

What an amazing location, quiet with mobs of kangaroos and flocks of birds the only neighbours. Beautiful, well appointed home with the most comfortable beds. Great to entertain inside and out. Spacious and lots of little thoughts and inclusions. All my guests were impressed and felt relaxed. highly recommend.

Beyond impressed with the cleanliness and size of the house

Wine Country Lodge well and truly exceeded our expectations. The house was immaculate when we arrived and air conditioners had been left on being that it was a warm day it was lovely to walk into. The lodge was massive with there being a huge open living/dining/kitchen area and 2 wings of the house. I would recommend this property to anyone with a large group of people and will be back!

Big and spacious for our large group.

We had a group of 14 staying for the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. The house was big and spacious enough to really cater for the group. The house was really comfortable for our stay with no one on top of each other. Nice and clean too. Would definitely return if the group was big enough.

Highly recommended for families

We stayed here during Christmas holiday and found this place was amazing. Very spacious room all around. Great location, close to shops and winery. Highly recommended for families for a holiday break.

Wonderful stay!

We had a wonderful stay.  Very relaxing and clean house.  See you all again, thank you.

Fabulous property for group of 14

The property was perfect couldn’t have asked for better. The kitchen had every utensil/appliance which made it easy to cater for us cooking both nights for 14 people. Lovely bedrooms and en-suites added to the ambience of the place. Plenty of space for everyone to lounge around. Dining table was amazing, seating all of us. Outdoor entertaining on the beautiful verandah was a winner and the view of the kangaroos in the evening, a bonus. Thank you so much for a great stay.

Wonderful stay

“We had a wonderful stay at Wine Country Lodge. We celebrated a 30th with our family, there were 12 adults and 1 infant. The house was spacious and was easily big enough for our large group. It was comfortable, beautifully decorated, on a very quiet and scenic spot, but we were still close to winerys, cafes and restaurants. It was wonderful and I would recommend staying there. The hosts and Hunter Valley Stays were friendly and accommodating. We thank then for a wonderful stay.”
