Cosy & Beautiful
Absolutely loved our stay at Hunter River Retreat. Every cottage is amazing with the added bonus of individual hot tubs, log fires & beautiful scenery.
We are a group of women who go away a couple of times a year. We were all able to fit with most of us having our own rooms. We loved the views and tranquillity and the beautiful large veranda overlooking the valley. The property had everything we need including a well equipped kitchen and lots of spaces to talk and relax. The spa was an extra treat. Would definitely go back.
Loved it will definitely return I loved it so relaxing
Great cabins and facilities
Great location for a group get away. Had my 30th here and it was a fantastic place to stay.
We wanted to have a short getaway over winter, and knew we wanted a secluded location, a log fire, and a spa. Well Hunter River Retreat had all this and more. Spending nights in the jacuzzi on the balcony sipping champagne was a highlight. The kitchen was fully equipped, allowing us to not have to leave for a couple of days. We went for a walk around the property, met the horses, and played a spot of tennis. Thank you for a wonderful break - we'll be back!
