You are truly blessed being in this part of the world. We booked the accommodation to see The Pretenders and Stevie Nicks at Bimbadgen Winery. Initially I was looking for accommodation closer to the winery; however all the decent accommodation was booked out. After staying at The Wattle Lodge I was glad that we couldn’t find accommodation closer to Bimbadgen as it forced us to look further afield and we found your place. As it turned out you are only 40 minutes away from the wineries on an open road which is actually a very pleasant drive. I also feel that had we stated closer to the wineries our stay wouldn’t have been as relaxing.

The only downfall to our stay is that we didn’t stay long enough. Oh well there is always next time and it is a very easy drive from Sydney to get to your place.

As for the property……!!!!! What a beautiful property and location. The lodge had everything we needed. It has been decked out to make you really feel at home. The kitchen had every appliance that we needed. The beds are very comfortable and the place is very clean. I also loved that each bedroom has its own bathroom. And the BBQ……..I could cook for a whole footy team with that size BBQ. The outlook from the deck is truly amazing. Thanks for letting me know about the IGA store in Branxton. We ended up picking up all our supplies for the weekend. It maybe a little more expensive than the bigger chains; however it meant that we didn’t have to bring all our groceries from Sydney. It also meant that we were supporting an independent store. It was also nice to find some supplies in the kitchen as there were a few items that we did forget.

I really think that you have thought of everything when you built this beautiful lodge. I know you may get some people that may comment that they can’t get Wi-Fi or phone reception; however for me that is an advantage of staying at this property. It makes you switch off from the distractions that stop us all from relaxing.

Too many people are glued to their electronic gadgets so says me writing this email using my desktop!
