“From the location to the cosy stone cottage, to the cute visits from Smokey (the horse) we had the best time. We felt like we had the whole property and land to ourselves yet we were so close to town and the Hunter Valley cafes ect. Clean fresh sheets and a comfy bed made for a great nights sleep, we loved the fire and the spa. Thanks for having us guys, we will be back!
“Eloise and Troy were the best hosts you could ask for. We had a blackout and within 20mins, they were able to get it fixed and the house was up running. The most gorgeous cabin to stay in with great facilities and not too far from the wineries either. Definitely recommending this to all my friends!
“We had a wonderful, relaxing stay – the fact that the cabin was fenced all around on this large property made our stay very peaceful – we had 2 cattle dogs with us who enjoyed their stay as much as we did… and didn’t go chasing the wildlife. Beautiful views. I fell in love with the highland cow and her calf 🙂 Thanks Elloise and Troy we have already recommended and would love to come back.
“Eloise and Troy are welcoming and accommodating hosts. The cabin was spotless and very inviting. It was quiet, clean and cozy. With everything you could hope for some quiet time. The location is gorgeous and peaceful. Close to many Hunter Valley delights so you can so many things. The property is stunning and has its own special delights. We loved it and would definitely recommend for everyone from families, friends, couples. It will definitely draw us back again!
“What a special treat the Rockhouse is! The perfect getaway that makes you feel a million miles from the city. The property is just beautiful and so extremely peaceful. A trip into Morpeth is worth the short drive and breakfast at the common ground is a must! My husband and I enjoyed the quick drive to the top of the hill on the property for the most lovely views, the perfect spot for a picnic. Eloise and Troy have thought of everything and were friendly and accommodating hosts! We will definitely be back!
“The property is everything for a weekend away! It’s a very romantic setting but at the same time great for kids. Not far from the wineries but away from the hustle of the hunter. We loved it.
“We loved staying here!!! Eloise could not have been more helpful leading up to our stay and was extremely lovely and helpful! The property is gorgeous, and we loved the newly renovated goanna cottage! Thank you so so much for the wonderful stay!! We will definitely be back.
“Eloise and Troy’s place is beautiful, peaceful and well accommodated. We really enjoyed all of the activities we could do on their property – the picnic and sunset were a real delight! The highland cows were always fun to watch from the balcony. The jacuzzi was exactly what we needed – we loved that we could relax and unwind. The cabin was clean and tidy! We enjoyed the box of goodies upon arrival – thank you so much Eloise and Troy! We cannot recommend this place enough. Hoping to be back again!
“Had a great week at Bluegum Cottage, Hunter River Retreat. The cottage was so warm and cosy and the view from there was fantastic. The view from the picnic area on top of the hill was spectacular. My dog had a great time roaming around exploring. Thank you Eloise and Troy for a fun and very relaxing week. Will be back soon for sure.
“We had such an amazing time at the rock house! The property was beautiful, peaceful and tranquil. Lots of birds, and the property’s horse and dog also paid us a visit— super friendly and cute. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and we had ordered food through Eloise and Troy’s partnership with The Hungry Belly… it was delicious and extremely generous portions. Amanda even came and set the slow cooker up for us while we were out. Everything was just what we needed, perfectly clean, lovely and relaxing! Highly recommend.
“Quirky little cottage with good cooking facilities, comfy beds with lovely linen and a fabulous spa bath. The resident horse (who thinks he is a dog) was so cute and super friendly, he was there to greet us every morning and stuck around most of the day. The outdoor fire was a real treat and we lived exploring the property
“We had a lovely stay at the cabins, prompt response from our host Eloise and anything we needed was shortly made available. Very peaceful Surroundings and the animals were so sweet! We loved it.
“The property is great, we had loads of things to keep us occupied from walks on the property, picnics on the hill and a sunset spa with wine. The pet friendly cabin was also amazing for our pup.
“I stayed at this for 2 nights with 6 adults and 2 dogs. We had a great time, the place was clean when we arrived, the spa ready to go and a little box of sweet treats to greet us. The location was beautiful in the Hunter Valley region, approx. 30mins away from wineries and the accommodation sat on top of a steep hill with an amazing view. It was nicely secluded with privacy from the other cottages and the cottage itself was fenced so the dogs couldn’t leave the immediate area without supervision. Regarding amenities there was a BBQ that we ended up not using however the spa was awesome on the deck. The kitchen is fully stocked with a stove and oven, fridge, various pots and pans and kitchen utensils, and complimentary tea and coffee. Beds were comfortable and rooms were clean with plenty of blankets provided and…
“Our stay at Rockhouse was absolutely incredible, everything we had hoped for and more! Eloise was super lovely and very helpful – our sparkling wine and treat box on arrival and the picnic basket/pillow set up which we took to the top of the hill to watch the sunset was the cherry on top! The view is stunning and was the perfect opportunity for me to propose to my partner 🙂 Rockhouse holds a very special place in our hearts and we will definitely be back!
“Thank you for a wonderful stay! The accommodation was perfect in a beautiful rural setting, complete with a visit from the horse! Everything about the cottage was perfect for relaxing and unwinding. The gift pack of sweet treats was very welcomed & with the wine, such an added beautiful touch to our stay. Your service in the lead up to our stay was fantastic, and the extra effort to look after our lasagna dinner was very much appreciated. Both our breakfast hamper & dinners were delicious – you were right I was not disappointed at all with my discussion to add these extras. Thank you for your recommendations. We are sad to be going home but will be sure to recommend you to everyone, and can’t wait to return.
