Nice and cosy!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Cherokee Retreat. We stayed mid-week and were upgraded to the Eagle's Nest cabin for free. The cabin was very nice and cosy, and the hosts were friendly. It was our wedding anniversary, and the hosts left a card and chocolates on arrival. The views are gorgeous, and the property is secluded and quiet. Wood heater was all ready to go on arrival.

Fantastic escape

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic stay at this gorgeous little retreat. Suzanne was a great host, making sure everything was OK after we arrived. Such a beautiful lodge that is well thought out, incredibly clean and with stunning stunning views. It's so quiet and the pictures of the views on this website just don't do it justice.

Will definitely be back!

THanks

The retreat was beautiful;clean and comfortable! The views were to die for, it was so quiet which made it easy to wind down. Owners were lovely and accommodating. Had a lovely stay and would definitely return.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

Only 1hr20mins from the Melbourne CBD but the cabins were so secluded we felt like we were much further away. We stayed in the corner Eagles Nest cabin which was spacious, very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. The views are simply spectacular! Beautiful Rosellas feed in the surrounding trees and we spotted many kangaroos on our sunset walks. The spa and shower are both luxurious and relaxing. Highly recommended! The pictures don't capture the beauty and tranquility of this retreat.
