A wonderful country retreat suitable for groups of friends, families and or couples who want something a little less commercial and looking for quiet and charm. We had seven families stay in comfortable cottages. By day we toured wineries and by night we congregated in Elfins communal areas to enjoy conversation and the amazing wines of The Hunter.

It is rare to find a room with so much space and a bed more comfortable than my own. I was tempted to steal the pillows and mattress but instead noted the brands and quizzed the ever helpful host Marie. We were with a group of 12 friends and had a fantastic couple of days (and nights) here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beautiful elevated property in the heart of the grape growing district of Pokolbin with fabulous views of the surrounding vineyards and the Brokenback mountain range.Quietly tucked away yet so close to all the very best that the wine region has to offer including only minutes to 4 world class golf courses.Recently refurbished and upgraded hotel style rooms are very comfortable with everything you need to make your stay easy and enjoyable with large glass french doors opening out onto your private veranda and perfectly framing the stunning vista. The separate loft/villa cottage provides a luxurious space with full amenities.The views from here are also fantastic with doors that open out onto the garden and courtyard area.Our small table grape vineyard and our neighbours extra large Chardonnay & Shiraz vineyard and farm animals complete the picture. The salt water swimming pool along side the BBQ area and the guest pavilion provides a refreshing end to a day out amongst the many cellar doors, restaurants, cafes, gardens etc during the summer months. The pavilion is the perfect place to relax and watch the sun go down. ... more   less
