Home on the ranch, the perfect weekend getaway
As you enter through the gates, you cannot help but notice the abundance of wildlife and pets that roam the property and the endless grasslands...
This unique country stay sits on three hundred acres of absolute magnificent bushland. It is the perfect romantic, peaceful nature break or simply a family holiday.
There is so much to see and do from flora and fauna, horse riding, or sitting back and watching the kangaroos roam the grasslands, to feeding the animals, trying your luck for a hole in one at the golf course, or just cuddling up and enjoying a drink near the fireplace. Whatever you have in mind, it is all here at Oaks Ranch Mossy Point.
Situated in one of the most scenic South Coast regions and just minutes away from one the most spectacular, quiet surfing beaches at Broulee, and of course near the historic town of Mogo, it is an absolute delight to stay here.
I must say, Mossy Point was never really on my 'bucket list'. How wrong I was not to scribble it in the black book! It is so breathtakingly beautiful with pure nature surrounding you and, being minutes away from beaches and of course the main town of Batemans Bay, it was foolish of me not to visit earlier.
Most of the views from the rooms overlook the astounding mountain ranges of Deua National Park, giving you that tranquil feeling.
I highly recommend staying at Oaks Ranch, the whole atmosphere was so relaxing, and all the staff were so friendly and helpful making it even more of an enjoyment.
The facilities are great too. There is an outdoor swimming pool, which provided one of the best swims I have ever had. Overlooking the acres of bushland and mountain views as the sun sets through the trees over the mountains leaves you speechless.
There are barbeque areas as well, so you can make your own barbeque dinner or lunch, then afterwards a leisurely bush walk on the property is an absolute must. There is table tennis in the games room and fishing is also available at their very own river.
We did have breakfast here- it was a self-serve continental breakfast, which was good. At the time they had different types of cereal, toast with all the condiments, pastry and tea & coffee.
We did not eat dinner here as we were out mostly and had dinner elsewhere; however, we did fire up the barbie for lunch the next day and all cutlery and plates were supplied, which was great.
There are fifteen guestrooms in five styles from standard queen and family rooms to an executive suite. There is a private ensuite bathroom, towels & linen, tea & coffee_making facilities and flat screen TV/DVD in every room.
The rooms were very clean, tidy and very well maintained, and the bathroom was spacious which is always great.
With so many activities to do on site and pure nature surrounding the rooms, the quiet relaxing atmosphere, and wonderful staff and with the great facilities....it is truly a place I will want to come back to. I cannot wait for my next visit. I highly recommend staying here for a relaxing, peaceful romantic or family getaway.
One of the many breathtaking views around the ranch...
