Designed by renowned architect Max Pritchard the Ridgetop Rereats won the coveted Royal Australian Institute of Architects award for design excellence.

The Retreats offer open plan lounge, dining and kitchen spaces in an energy efficient yet luxurious design. Complementing this are two bedrooms separated by a bathroom flooded with natural light from the lofty windows. Parquetry floors, leather sofas, beechwood timber furnishings and cosy stone fireplace all add up to a stylish decor in a location to remember.

Beautiful retreat set in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

As a surprise birthday present for my partner this turned out to be a fantastic four nights. Entering Deep Creek you are emerged into tall stringy bark forest with ferns and grass trees lining the floor. Down the dirt track a first glimpse of the architecturally designed retreat is a delight.

Upon entering you first see the perfectly framed stone fireplace and are surrounded by windows revealing the bushland beyond. The building itself is beautiful and the views through the large windows immerse you into the forest.

With a beautiful bathroom, comfortable beds and open plan living all so well considered it is very comfortable. The nearby walks are beautiful and worth visiting for these alone. We can highly recommend the Ridge Top Retreats and would never leave if given the choice.

I would like to have stayed there but the only way to book was by email enquiry and I missed the return phonecall. By the time I got in contact with the person a few days later they had let it to someone else and had nothing available for the time I wanted. Disappointing as I intended to book.

As we arrived there was a flock of scrub wrens and thornbills dancing around immediately outside our bedroom window. They were there for at least 10 minutes, much to our delight. I know this wasn't arranged, but it set our weekend off to a great start.

Later there were kangaroos on the porch and other birds. and the free park pass was certainly appreciated.

It was cold and the fire each evening was extra nice.

We could come again!
