Warm and welcoming hospitality.
Delicious home cooking.
4 private en suite double bedrooms open onto a spacious and comfortable central living/dining hall with outside deck.
Access via a well maintained gravel road - suitable for 2WD.
The B&B accommodation is surrounded by forest, with lyrebirds and kookaburras calling outside the bedroom window, crimson rosellas perching on the railings, and echidnas snuffling in the undergrowth.
Located 6Km off the Prince’s Highway down unsurfaced roads, Goldsmiths in the Forrest was an island of peace and tranquillity during our drive from Sydney to Melbourne. The guest accommodation is in a purpose built block separate from Les and Darilyn’s home. There are four double bedrooms set in pairs either side of a large lounge/kitchen/diner that overlooks the forest. Everything was extremely comfortable and Les and Darilyn were excellent hosts who went out of their way to make our stay memorable and enjoyable. Unfortunately, due to lack of time, we were unable to take up Les’ offer of a forest nature walk. Rooms were well furnished ad comfortable and breakfast was excellent. If we are ever in the area again we will certainly return - and take up Les’ offer of the nature walk!
i just called to ask about their room, customer service answer and ask how many people is it for i said im not sure, about 3-5 people and i said i just need a room with 2 queen size bed, then she chuckled a bit and said 'no no no no no no, ok goodbye'
the worst phone conversation with receptionist ever!!!
So, we wanted something to counter the two city trip we were doing, and we could not have found better.
You know you must have something pretty unusual when you have to drive for 15 minutes off the highway to get there.....once we arrived we found a wonder haven of tranquility.
Lovely log fire burning and lovely greeting from Les and Darylin. Things just got better - lovely lounge area and very comfortable bedroom - everything you could need, plus views into the forest.
We had noted that as it was a little of the beaten track we should consider having dinner there and wow, was that a good move. Darylins cooking is superb - it would put many good restaurants to shame. Wonderful rack of lamb with a lovely sauce and fresh local veggies. Home made bread too, followed by a desert to die for.
Utterly quiet nights sleep and then an equally fine breakfast from Darylin. Les then gave us the tour of the forest area - really great to see to native flora and fauna.
All in all just superb - if you fancy getting away from it all then this is the place for you - highly recommended.
This accommodation is beautifully located in the middle of the forest, just a few km away from Lakes Entrance. It is the ideal place to get away from a busy tourist place and enjoy fascinating birds in their natural habitat, while still very close to spectacular beaches. Getting up early in the morning and watching the forest come to life was a highlight in our trip to Australia.
The 4 rooms are part of a separate building, designed and built only for the guests. There are numerous spots you can watch the surrounding forest from: the deck, the comfortable seating by the lounge window, the kitchen window, the breakfast table, or just your bed.
The room was clean and nice, with en-suite bathroom and all facilities we needed. Darylin and Les came over every morning and Darylin prepared awesome breakfasts. We also chose to have Darylin cook for us dinner twice and and greatly enjoyed her delicious meals, especially the lamb and the seafood.
Les took us on a walk on their property, explaining all about the trees and the plants and the birds. We were astonished about how knowledgeable he was and also about the marvellous pictures he had taken over the years. Darylin and Les were great hosts, not only they spoiled us while we were there, but they also helped us with our further planing and accommodation booking. It felt more like visiting family rather than staying at a B&B. We liked the place so much, that we extended our original stay of 2 nights with 1 more night.
We highly recommend not only the accommodation, but also Darylin's home made meals.
