Lance is a very welcoming host and his retreat is quiet and peaceful. The accommodation is clean and well present with everything you could want and breaky is included - with the bonus of some home made muffins, freshly baked! We were made to feel very welcome and cared for. Would recommend.

Lance's place is a beautiful retreat which looks even better than the pictures on the site. He was very accomodating and provided a great selection of breakfast foods - there was also amazing chocolate cake and two friendly and well behaved dogs.

Lance, his wife, and their place was great! The perfect stopover on our drive to QLD. The family unit was clean, spacious and had everything we needed (including profiteroles and hot cross buns!) Lance was a great host and even reversed our newly acquired trailer into the property for us (because I can't reverse!). We will definitely be visiting again next time we are up that way!

Semi retired teacher with wife living on the banks of the mighty Clarence River. We are into the water, surfing and fishing, classic cars and motorbikes and love to share our beautiful house with visitors. This is a place to truly chill out and enjoy. It's peaceful and private with a little luxury for a great getaway.
