What our guests say…

“We had an amazing time here. Liam took me into the vineyard outside the cottage and got down on one knee to propose! Thank you for the beautiful experience and we will definitely be back.”

Liam & Jana, January 2016

“Wow…..this place is simply amazing. From the moment we pulled up at the front gates and took the drive down through the beautifully manicured field to our private oasis, we know we had the perfect private setting for our three day retreat. Set on one level with vineyards one way, mountains the other we sat on the deck enjoying some bonus treats and refreshments provided for us at no extra cost. The standard of our accommodation was comparable with some of the best I’ve stayed in all of my travels, in fact, better! Tastefully decorated throughout, top quality fittings and a wonderful atmosphere with soft music on arrival and the aroma of the fresh roses from the garden. The cleanliness and attention to detail left no stone unturned, with everything we needed from pots and pans to candles by the bath, which made it a perfect and memorable getaway for us. Anyone looking for a private escape at a quality place should not go past Lilies. In fact, we have booked to return next year, thanks Lilies.”

Barbara, Thank you so very much for an amazing stay at Lillies, it was honestly breathtaking. Your hospitality, attention to detail and the care that you took in preparing the space for us was above and beyond anything that we could have ever hoped for. We will definitely be back but in the meantime we will give a 100% recommendation for others to take some time out and Retreat to Lillies…

Roy & Desi, December 2015

My sisters were over from the UK for just a few days and I am so happy we chose Lilies to give them a great experience of the Hunter region. From the thoughtful touches everywhere in the cottage to the very generous food hamper and fresh produce in the fridge, the awesome beds, amazing bathrooms, peaceful setting and even the neighboring winery and smokehouse which is well worth a visit. We would recommend staying at Lilies and hope to come back soon. Well done Barbara – your hospitality is a triumph.

Barbara, thank you for the most wonderful weekend we had at Lilies. My parents were in absolute awe of the house, surroundings and every little detail that you put into our amazing stay. Mum was so happy to spend her 70th birthday celebration at Lilies. David and I have now found our new home away from home and as I told you on Friday, you now have returning customers for life. Thank you so much x

Fabulous 3 days at Lilies. We have never stayed in such a well equipped cottage that caters equally for two couples. Barbara has thought of everything and there are lots of special touches. The weather was perfect and we were lucky enough to be able to relax on the deck and enjoy the sunsets. If you need a place to get away, Lilies is perfect and we will definitely be back.

Julie Zieschang, August 2016

Lilies is absolutely perfect. All that you want for a quick luxury escape and more. The word that springs to mind is indulgence. Wish we could stay forever.

Alicia Simes, October 2016

What an amazing few days at Lilies. This is our second visit but first at ‘Poolside’. We have spent our days touring the vineyards and lazing by the pool. It has been so relaxing. We have not wished for anything. Barbara your attention to detail and hospitality is unbelievable. The super-comfortable beds, luxury bathroom and the wonderful provisions. We are leaving completely refreshed and wonderfully happy!

Jane and Mar, February 2017

Thank you for an ideal place to relax and recharge. We so love Lilies! In the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger, “I’ll be back”.
