Tewksbury Lodge offers the unique experience of accommodation in a authentic handcrafted Canadian-style log cabin.
The cabin is comfortably appointed to a high standard with superior furnishings. It is perfect for a couple, two couples travelling together or a family with kids.
The open plan living area includes leather reclining sofas in front of a cosy wood fire (wood provided during cooler months), reverse-cycle air-conditioning, a 47 inch wall-mounted TV with Netflix and Fetch TV, a Bluetooth music dock, free Wi-Fi, 6 seat dining table and a well equipped kitchen with a full oven, gas cooktop, Nespresso coffee machine and dishwasher.
The cabin has two bedrooms, each with a TV, and can sleep up to 4 people.
All linen and towels are provided. A cot and high chair are available on request.
The spacious bathroom has a spa bath and separate shower. Laundry facilities include a washing machine and dryer.
The cabin is eco friendly and carbon neutral with solar panels, 100% renewable grid power, LED lighting, skylights and double glazed windows. The super insulating power of the cabin's 30 tonnes of logs dramatically reduces heating and cooling requirements. The thermal mass of these logs also means they are capable of storing heat, thus warming up the cottage when the temperature dips at night.
Tewksbury Lodge is nestled on one hectare of picturesque gardens, beside the pristine waters of the Ovens River. Sit back and relax in comfortable chairs on the large verandah overlooking secluded gardens and enjoy great views of Mount Buffalo. There is also a BBQ and fire pit. You can even try your hand at fly fishing.
The Murray to Mountains Rail Trail runs right in front of the property, allowing you to safely cycle to Bright or several nearby wineries. A couple of bikes are available for guests to use.
Tewksbury Lodge is located within walking distance of the Porepunkah town centre which is home to the Punka Pub, Punka Pantry, Rail Trail Cafe and Porepunkah General Store. Bright Organics, where you can purchase great produce, is located next to the property. The wineries of Ringer Reef and Boyntons Feathertop are also within walking distance.
Take a 5 minute drive to Bright, play a round at the superb Bright Country Golf Club, take to the air in a microlight, explore 4WD tracks, fish in numerous rivers and visit Mount Buffalo. A number of ski and snow resorts are within an easy drive away. It is the perfect central base to experience the best of Victoria's stunning High Country.
Your hosts live on the property in a separate house, so they are available if required, however they will respect your privacy and allow you to enjoy Tewksbury Lodge and its peace and quiet.
