The accommodation property is not only conveniently located to many of the Hunter Valley's most notable cellar doors and restaurants, it's situated right behind Hunter Valley Wildlife Park, so yes expect some lions roaring and other wildlife sounds at any given time of the day.
Spectacular on every level let's start with the immaculately presented 5 acres of grounds in which the property sits within, and those beautiful two life-sized bronze deer who welcome you to this little piece of paradise. Make your way inside and this is when you will truly be blown away.
Modeled off a traditional Canadian hunting lodge the Hunter Valley Lodge & Retreat entry leads you directly into the central lounge room where your eyes are instantly drawn to the spectacular stone fireplace and soaring cathedral ceilings.
As you make your way up to the second level it's here the full perspective of the wood-paneled walls and ceiling can be truly appreciated as to the immaculate condition of the lodge.
