Great location, great hosts, great food

We spent two days in the very comfortable passive solar lodge, situated in the beautiful Jackeys Marsh. The hosts were wonderful and helpful and the food was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will come again!

Wonderful Experience

Rosemary and Sean made our stay a wonderful experience with great hospitality on our three night sojourn while researching family history in Doleraine. We had wonderful dinners two nights on our return to the lodge cooked by Sean with locally sourced, organically grown or bred ingredients, complimented with vegetables grown on the property. A third night we enjoyed a tasty platter of local delights. Seeing a mob of wallabies feeding at dusk on the lodge grounds as well as the ducks making their way to the stream and an echidna feeding by the track in one evening made for a truelly unique experience.
