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.
Great home to celebrate a family get together.
Thank you for hosting us. The place was very spacious and had all the amenities we could possibly need for a family of over 10 people including three young children. See you next time.
Thank you for such beautiful accommodation. A brilliant time was had by all!
The Wine Country Lodge was the perfect place to stay - spacious and private for a large group or family. Absolutely loved it!

This place oozes generosity....We found Wine Country Lodge so accommodating for our large family. There was plenty of space for everyone to be comfortable-lots of bathrooms for us all to get ready for the wedding we went to. Living areas were big enough for everyone to have a seat. It's spacious, private and very well maintained. Thank you to the owners for a wonderful stay.

The Wine Country Lodge was just perfect for my birthday celebration with family and close friends. It was very comfortable and spacious, and beautifully appointed. The setting, in acreage complete with gum trees and kangaroos, is private and peaceful.

We organised a couples get away as we attended the Wine Days Boyz II Men concert. We enjoyed our stay and this place was clean, tidy, spacious and very welcoming. The home perfectly accommodated us as couples with all areas designed to meet our expectations for a couples get away. Thank you for providing us with your efficient and timely response to our needs when we needed to verify some issues. We recommend this place and would definately love to come back in future.
Perfect place for 17 'old codgers' catching up with one another. Great digs, comfy beds, loads of room --inside and out. Everything we could ask for. Highly recommended! Thank you for allowing us to spend a wonderful few days together in absolute comfort.
“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.”
Amazing house with a great layout

An amazing property for a multiple family holiday, it was in great condition, very clean and very well equipped
