Serenity and Comfort

Pros: Quiet, Peaceful with amenities to make you feel at home.
Had a great mini break at the Owl Head Lodge. Property is a little far from cellar doors but nice to hear the birds and no cars! My partner and I will definitely return. A special thank-you to Niel and Mariella for their hospitality.

Three Great Nights in Central NSW

Pros: Beautifully presented, comfortable bed, good kitchen area with all the utensils you need. Lots of pillows and a real 'chill out' feel about the place.
Cons: Nothing needs improving.
Location: Pioneers Museum in town was great. Davies Butchery has top class meats, cut to measure to enjoy the great local wines. Very cosy and comfortable!!
Close to historic Gulgong, best coffee at the local cafe, great view from Flirtation Hill over the whole district, used the back roads and saw a lot more. Had a great picnic by the Cudegong River on the Mebul Road. Best of all geat local wines and beef. Will be back again.

Stunning!

Sometimes you stay somewhere that is really special and Owls Head Lodge is exactly that. Just outside of Gulgong, Owls Head Lodge has a long, beautiful driveway that leads down to cottages, 2 glass studios and the Glass House. We spent one night in the Glass House and I really didn't want to leave. (Tried every scam to get that extra day off work....to no avail!) The Glass House is simply stunning. Walls of glass that allow you to view incredible 180* views of far off ranges, vineyards and the Cudgegong Valley from whichever room you are in. The house itself is quite luxurious with everything you could possibly need being supplied. The kitchen is fully stocked so you can cook yourself or buy takeaway in Gulgong and reheat for dinner as we did. (The Indian Restaurant in Gulgong is very good.) The pool was a great respite from the heat and we spent some time in the water enjoying the peace and privacy and admiring the view. I cannot wait to get back to Owl Head Lodge and I am already trying to plan our next trip. To our hosts Neil, Mariella and Nathan, I would just like to say Thank You......for everything.

Super comfy room 10 mins from Gulgong.

We stayed in the glass house - in a studio room with sweeping views of the local Countryside. The bed was superbly comfortable. The room was spacious and well equipped. We used the pool as one day the weather was very hot. Also ran the a/c and ceiling fan which worked well to cool our room Saw kangaroos and lots of native bird life - and stars! Amazing stars at night. This is our third stay there. We will be back again.
