Luxury in the bush — Hunter Valley accommodation with a difference

Set in a serene and semi-remote bushland setting, our comprehensively-equipped AAA-rated four-star house provides unique Hunter Valley accommodation.

With wallabies by the verandah, clear mountain air and barely a building in sight, our house in the bush feels miles away from the rest of the world. But its not too far away from the 'big smoke', so it's perfect for weekend getaways and self-catering holidays.


Relax in nature high on a mountain-top

We are located  in the upper Hunter region just two hours north of Sydney. The charming village of Vacy lies 10 minutes away at the foot of Mt George - upon which Eaglereach Wilderness Resort is situated.  Maitland is a short drive south with the Barrington Tops in the other direction. The Retreat Bushland Lodge is a privately rented lodge ('unhosted accommodation') within the Eaglereach Wilderness Resort. It is rented out separately from the main hosted lodge-letting business within the same resort. Our guests are able to use all the community facilities of Eaglereach Wilderness Resort: tennis court, swimming pool, kayaking on lagoon, yabby fishing, exercise area, children's playground, bushwalking, picnic areas and so on. Guests at The Retreat may also book for a fine a la carte dinner at the nearby Eaglereach Bar and Bistro.


Get away with friends, family or that special someone

  • Enjoy all the features of a resort with the benefit of your own private, self-contained house
  • Spectacular views over the Hunter Valley and, on a clear day, across to the ocean at Newcastle, while still having the privacy and quiet you need to have a real holiday, away from the bustle of the city.
  • Because of its configuration, our bush house is ideal for families, small groups, and honeymooners seeking seclusion for a romantic getaway.

Go bush without roughing it—enjoy all nature has to offer while staying in the comfort of your own extremely comfortable holiday house.
