The fully self-contained accommodation at Ribbon Gum Lodge (sleeps 6-8 guests) is available for family or group lettings at all times. However, smaller groups can choose to book just the upper level, known as Ribbon Gum Suites (sleeps 4-6 guests), which is available for weekday lettings (Sundays to Fridays). The property has a carport and off street parking for up to 5 cars.
Climb the stairs, close the front door behind you and be transported to a world of relaxation and rejuvenation. French doors and picture windows take in expansive views of the forest outside where you can brunch on the deck and watch the mist lift, revealing the whispering ribbon gum trees dotted throughout the gully below. Enjoy an invigorating game of badminton, or just put your feet up and unwind in comfortable lounges by our inviting stone fireplace. In the evening, book into some of the Upper Mountains delightful restaurants, or simply select one of the latest movies from our free in-house DVD archive.
