“Perfect house in tranquil, scenic setting”
Reviewed February 1, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

I rarely state that a self contained house is the perfect accommodation - until now. The owner (Barbara) has thought of everything. Breakfast is all included - and it is far superior to what I've seen at other places.
Do yourself a favour, Book this place, buy some wine, steak and salad. Cook on the deck while watching the sunset and allow the stress to disappear.
Oh and the beds are the most comfy beds I've had at a rental.
Oh and don't forget the spa bath and two person shower.
No kids and no pets allowed - how great is that!!
I'll be back in winter to use the fireplace and settle down with a hunter Valley Shiraz.

Hi John, Thank you so very, very much for the lovely review you've written about your recent stay at Lilies. I am so happy to know that you enjoy coming here to forget about the rest of the crazy world outside of the Hunter Valley. It is always so good to see you all enjoying Lilies and letting the stress of big city life disappear while relaxing on the deck. Can't wait to have you come back during the winter months - I'll have the fire roaring!

We stayed for two nights and it was not long enough. Such a beautiful location by the vineyard and pool. We can not recommend this highly enough, you have all you could need in such a tranquil location close to all the wineries. We also had a fabulous massage outside on the deck. Barbara provides you with a wonderful breakfast spread that added to a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back.

“A slice of Heaven in the Hunter”
Reviewed April 3, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Lilies is the most carefully crafted luxury stay that I have experienced in 12 years of regulalrly visiting the region. From the thoughtful touches everywhere in the cottage to the very generous food hamper and fresh produce in the fridge, the awesome beds, amazing bathrooms, peaceful setting and even the neighboring winery and smokehouse which is well worth a visit. I visited with my partner and 2 sisters and we loved every minute, coming back early from the wineries to take full advantage of the beautiful cottage and wraparound deck. We would recommend staying at Lilies and hope to come back soon. Well done Barbara - your hospitality is a triumph
