Waratah Lodge, Fish Creek

Just last weekend, hubby and I spent three days in the beautiful Prom Country region. It was a fairly last minute decision to go on this trip, so it was a little hard finding accommodation close to Wilsons Prom. Most places were either booked out or requiring a minimum stay of seven days. After a little Googling, I came across Waratah Lodge, which was about 30 minutes drive to the main gate of the park. So without further ado, I booked ourselves two nights at this beautiful lodge.

To be honest, hubby and I weren't too sure what to expect when we arrived, because the exterior looked pretty ordinary, like someone's house. But when Judy welcomed us into the lodge and showed us our room, we knew it was going to be a great stay. 

Our room was equipped with a queen bed, a television, DVD player, a mini fridge and the best of all, a double spa bath. The room overlooks Waratah Bay, which meant we had beautiful views once we got up in the mornings and before we settled down in bed. 

There is also plenty of space for lounging in the common area. There is a piano, a television, a fireplace, couches and a bookshelf filled with books, DVDs and games. For meals, they offer cooked breakfasts or dinners at an extra charge, but continental breakfast (cereal, bread, yoghurt, fruit, etc.) is free. 

We didn't forget to appreciate the beautiful nature that was right at our doorstep. The wide view of lush green grass, mountains and the bay made me stop and realise how majestic this world really is. 

We also went on a relatively short bush walk that led to a lake, right in their backyard.

Apart from our door handle being a little fiddly, everything else was perfect. It was a great base for exploring as it was about 30 minutes to Wilsons Prom, 20 minutes to Fish Creek, and 10 minutes to Sandy Point and Waratah Bay. We felt so close to nature, and we were lucky enough to spot a few wild animals scurrying across the road. It is a place where we would happily stay again, in fact, we felt so comfortable we called it 'home' throughout our trip. One to consider if you are visiting the Prom Country region!
