Wow! What a busy summer holiday season we are having! This is our first weekend with a single vacancy since mid December, and we are ready to have a little rest.
But next week is proving exceptionally busy also, so not much down time to be had. As our first Christmas holiday season as owners of Friday Creek Retreat, we were very happy with such a busy time, and seeing all our guests enjoying themselves. From swimming in the pool, playing tennis, bike riding and even Jenga for the kids, everyone had a fabulous time. Of course there was also plenty of down time for guests also, just sitting on the veranda taking in the fabulous views or relaxing with a movie or good book – something for everyone here at Friday Creek Retreat. We had NBN wifi installed a few months ago, and this has proven very popular, with fabulous fast internet in every room of every cottage. Since making Friday Creek Retreat pet friendly, we have had many guests enjoying bringing their pets on holiday with them. On the 22nd of December, we had a total of 6 dogs checking in on the same day – a record so far! Here is a fabulous photo of a very happy dog enjoying the views on a misty morning from the veranda of our Australian High Country cottage #7.

We just love seeing happy dogs here, and happy owners sharing their holiday time with their best friends. We have also had 3 cats stay so far!
This summer is sure proving a scorcher, and ensures that our pool is the most popular place on the property. But an early morning walk through the vineyard, before it gets too hot, will ensure you spot a few kangaroos, who seem to love spending the early cool mornings around our vines. The nets are on the vines now, and hoping for a bumper crop of grapes in a few months time.
Hopefully we will have wine to sell to our guests in the near future.
Cheers till next post!
