Lovely spot for a relaxing getaway

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is well set up and worked well with the 3 couples we had staying here. The balcony area was excellent and we enjoyed many meals sitting out here in the sun.

The area is lovely with the house being well located.

Wonderful, relaxing and thoughtful accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

Millers Retreat has succeeded in providing a truly relaxing holiday for my wife and I. The owners commitment to continually improving the property is clearly evident, and we were the beneficiaries of a newly installed indoor fire place that was amazing! If you are looking for peace and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of Jindabyne, we strongly recommend a visit to Millers Retreat in Talbingo.
