Traveling With Pets
Pets that are clean and flea free are most welcome but must be past the chewing phase. Pets are permitted to enter the house and stay on non-carpeted areas. Pets are not permitted into the carpeted bedrooms for hygiene reasons.
One large or two smaller dogs are permitted per stay. If your furry friend prefers the great outdoors there is a chain dog run adjacent to the homestead for your pet to stretch their legs. The house yard is also securely fenced for children and pets to roam freely and safely around the lawn area.
Naturally, we expect you to pick up after your pet, and provide scooper and bags for this purpose. Please be aware that any additional cleaning required from pets or damage caused to furniture or fittings will incur additional charges on your credit card.

Great Country House!
Really enjoyed our stay! The outdoor area, especially the wood oven, was enjoyed by our two families and kids. Location is fantastic and really close to Metung and Lakes Entrance. I have already recommended the place to friends. Hope to be back one day!
Thank you so much for leaving a review for our property. I'm so glad everyone enjoyed their stay and you could make great use of the facilities on offer.
Thanks too for recommending us to your friends - we hope to welcome you all back again soon!
Kind regards, Kim
Great country accommodation
Well appointed house, great outdoor area. Loved the pizza oven and bbq.
It was well fenced, didn’t worry about the dog getting out, he was bemused by the sheep though. There was no reason to leave had everything you’d need.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience at our property.
I'm glad you had everything you needed for a relaxing stay.
It's a pet's paradise, and yes those sheep have entertained many urban dwelling dogs!
We hope to see you again soon,
Kind regards, Kim
We would loved to have stayed longer
Superb house, well stocked, clean and everything you could wish for on a country stay. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to use the pizza oven, great excuse to come back again. Thank you Kim and Stephen for sharing your peaceful and tranquil retreat, the family and the dog really enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for our five star review Paula! We're delighted everyone in your family enjoyed their stay at Country House Retreat, and I do hope you get to enjoy pizzas on the deck next time you stay. Look forward to hosting you again! Kim
Family Friendly Property
It is one of the cleanest homes we've ever stayed at.
I highly recommend for all families and couples wanting to get away.
Also, owners are so lovely and helpful
Thank you for your review Mary! It was our pleasure to host your family, and I hope your daughter has fond memories of her little farm visit. I will be sure to pass your feedback onto our exceptional housekeeper Wendy, thank you! Kind regards, Kim
Great part of the world!
Great sized, well equipped and very comfortable house. Extremely peaceful location and only a short drive to Lakes or Metung for supplies. Very relaxing time, hope to be back. The farm fresh eggs on arrival was a very nice touch. Highly recommend staying here.
Thank you so much for leaving a review Scott. We're pleased to hear you found our retreat comfortable and enjoyed the peacefulness of tranquil Nungurner! Glad you enjoyed the free range eggs from our farm chooks - always good to have guests to share them with! We look forward to hosting you again, Kim
Home, Away from Home
We were welcomed to a warm and cosy environment. Such a gorgeously laid out home, with all the amenities available. Our stay was very comfortable, and the hot tub was definitely the highlight of our trip!
Thank you for leaving a review. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay, and the wonderful outdoor hot tub! We hope to see you again on your next visit to East Gippsland.
Country House Retreat is perfectly situated between Lakes Entrance and Metung, a little over 3 hours drive east from Melbourne in the inspiring Gippsland Lakes region. The secluded inlets, tranquil rivers and vast waterways of the Gippsland Lakes make fishing and boating a year round adventure. Tour operators offer guided fishing tours of the lakes as well as offshore ocean bound fishing charters. If fishing isn't your thing then you can opt for a cruise on the Gippsland Lakes with a number of operators, or pack the sand toys and head to nearby 90 mile beach for the quintessential Aussie beach summer holiday! East Gippsland is renowned for its mild climate, so if you're visiting in the cooler months there's still plenty to see and experience in our unspoilt and naturally diverse region. Enjoy mountain bike riding year round on the 100 km historic Rail Trail. Purchase the freshest seafood you're ever likely to eat, straight off the boat from one of the fishing fleets based in Lakes Entrance. Follow the Twin Rivers food and wine trail and discover the amazing produce our region is renowned for, including some delicious cool climate wines and cellar door experiences to enjoy. East Gippsland is peppered with tucked away little villages and towns to meander and discover on a scenic drive. A road trip to Buchan is a must for your itinerary, where you can go underground and tour through beautiful limestone caves. Also consider a half day trip to Paynesville to see koalas in the wild. Our guest information folder at Country House Retreat has suggested half day and full day itineraries, plus some great ideas for families to discover the best of what our region has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you!
