We loved it! Warm welcoming hosts. Wonderful to relax in luxury accommodation set in a beautiful garden surrounded by amazing bushland. Wonderful homemade afternoon tea on arrival and breakfasts with homemade produce. We felt so spoiled. Cheryl's attention to detail is amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl and Russel were wonderful hosts. There home was amazing, wonderfully decorated, warm and comfortable.

They were very helpful on local information. The breakfast was amazing with fresh fruit and a super tasty bircher muesli, all home made.

We would visit again in a heartbeat.

Cannot recommend them highly enough.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful find, Raintree is a beautiful property with so much to offer. We had a lovely long weekend here recently, our host Cheryl was welcoming and friendly, full of local knowledge and interesting stories.

Only a short drive from Berry, set in bushland high in the hills overlooking the township and river views.

Accommodation was outstanding, the whole place was tastefully decorated and the log fire was welcoming on a cold day. It was impeccably clean and tidy, with some lovely touches such as lush bathroom robes, included devonshire tea (which was to die for, absolutely tasty), a lovely breakfast and nothing was too much trouble.

The addition of Duke and Forrest, Cheryl's 2 cattle dogs were an added joy, very friendly and always ready for a tummy rub!

Highly recommended and we'll certainly be back for another visit.
