Luxury accommodation perfect for a romantic retreat between Kangaroo Valley and Berry
Lodges are available for check-in from 3pm on the day of arrival; check-out is 11am on the day of departure. Where possible, we are happy to extend departure times by prior arrangement, but please note this cannot be guaranteed.
Please note your booking is at The Drawing Rooms of Berry and your lodge choice is subject to availability. Lodge changes can be made at the management’s discretion.
On check-out, your lodge must be left in a similar condition as on arrival. All rubbish must be placed in the bins provided at your lodge. All dishes must be washed and you agree to ensure all air-conditioners, heaters and lights are turned off, and that the lodge is locked up securely upon your departure.

Damages, breakages and antisocial behaviour
You are liable for any damage or breakage caused by you or those invited to the property by you. Aside from small accidental damage, all other incidents will be charged to your bill. We reserve the right to process any charges in addition to accommodation to the registered credit card supplied at the time of booking to cover such incidents. You are kindly asked to notify us of any damage or any other issue with the lodge facilities as soon as possible so that we can make the necessary repairs.
For the comfort of all our guests, any excessive noise, disturbance to neighbours or other guests will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to remove any guests or visitors breaching this policy from the property.
A cleaning fee of $200 will automatically apply if excess cleaning is required for any reason.
We take no responsibility for any damage or loss to your property or property belonging to someone else.

Swimming in the dams is not permitted under any circumstances.

Gift vouchers are available for midweek and weekend stays in multiples of $50. Once dates are booked using a gift voucher the dates cannot be changed. Gift vouchers are not redeemable for cash.
