Wonderful Hidden Gem in the Upper Hunter

  • 5 of 5

We were met on arrival by Winn and Roger and they explained the way the lodge operates. One of the main reasons we selected Wattle Lodge was to be able to have our two Border Collies with us. Wattle Lodge is an excellent example of catering for our furry friends whilst still providing all the necessities that we needed too. We wanted a peaceful and tranquil weekend and Wattle Lodge provided us with that. A cosy well equipped and furnished cabin, lovely views over the rolling hills and valleys while still being only 20 minutes from "civilisation" in Singleton. This jewel is a rarity for couples like us with dogs and we will definitely be back again soon.

Beautiful surrounds

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is beautiful. Although located very close to the road, all living is on the other side of the house and the view is spectacular and serene. The property was quaint yet spacious. Nice and clean. The main bed however could use updating as could the sofa.

The hosts are very helpful and would offer any help immediately. Made us feel very welcome.

Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

Our short stay at "Wattle Lodge" was immediately relaxing . Our hosts Roger, Winn and James were most welcoming . Roger has a wealth of knowledge of his family's and the local history. The views from the front verandah are panoramic and at night the star filled sky is breathtaking. You have set a standard, that for us weary travellers, will be hard to match elsewhere.
