We hired the lodge for a family gathering, perfect location and facility.
It fitted us all in beautifully, all rooms had en-suites which was fantastic.
10 Adults and 6 children plus a baby, no one was bored. There was canoeing, basket ball, table tennis, trampoline, pool table plus toys to entertain kids and as a bonus a heated spa/pool - so much to do and see. Not to mention the chooks, pony, goat etc...
A fantastic large sunny balcony to enjoy your morning coffee at and a comfy couch to watch the fire warm away while enloying a lovely glass of red - great spot., would recommend to anyone wanting a large home to accommodate either families or group weekends away.
Mike is a very welcoming friendly host, explains everything in detail so you understand and feel comfortable as soon as you arrive at the lodge. The ladies who come in to clean were also very friendly and happy to have a chat.
Very well set up and run really well.
Hope to use the lodge again!
On a side note there was one thing that I thought you could consider.....
We cooked 3 main meals at the lodge and found the knives very difficult to use/cut with - so our/my suggestion would be for some sharper knives to be provided.
We really enjoyed our stay and found that time flew by!

Hi Mike. Just letting you know we had a fabulous time at your lodge. Regret we have to go so soon but sure we will visit again and stay longer. Kath has been great and looked after us well. Many thanks for the wonderful setup and will see you in our next family holiday. Happy birthday by way! Phoebe
My family had a wonderful holiday at your lodge
The kids had plenty to do on site and around Bilpin. We love the extra care put in this place, everything is warm and welcoming from bedroom, to lounge, kitchen, and outdoor. Just love it!
will definitely come back again
Thank you for the wonderful experience

Thanks so much for a wonderful, relaxing stay at Bilpin Springs as we celebrated my 40th! Everything was just great - what a gem! All of my family just loved the lodge and it's surroundings, we will certainly be back!
Bushfires around Bilpin didn't cause any damage to the lodge. Here's a photo from 23 Oct looking out from the front verandah.
Good morning Mike
Just a short note to thank you for the use of your wonderful facility at Bilpin Springs Lodge over this past weekend.
Kath spoilt us with her hospitality and breakfast provision, please pass on our sincere thanks to her.
The whole place was presented beautifully and Coola was a real hit with all of us. The grandchildren had a ball getting to know all the animals and the ‘games’ room kept them occupied when they were not able to go outside.
All in all, an absolute magic family experience made all the better by the facility given to us.
Congratulations, and we look forward to returning again.

We stayed at end of May for the weekend. There were 19 in our group so we had the lodge to ourselves. The website does not do this property justice, we were all so impressed! It's beautiful, big, clean. Fantastic facilities, a real home away from home! The breakfast supplied was plentiful and lovely and fresh, beds comfortable, good quality linen etc. We had such a lovely time, all adults who are cousins so lot's of memory sharing and now we will have even more of the times we had at Bilpin. Thanks to Mike for welcoming us on arrival and the other staff who looked after our needs, we will definitely be back!!
Stayed in Bilpin Springs Lodge with our large family and had a wonderful time. As there were 17 of us - the grandparents, parents and their children - we took over the whole Lodge and we were so happy with our choice. Everything was done to ensure that we had a weekend to remember. The bedrooms, all with ensuites, were very comfortable. The kitchen was spacious and very well appointed. The living areas were spacious as well, with a wonderful fire which we needed at night, since the weather was becoming cooler. The children enjoyed the huge play area, fortunately under cover, as well as the half size pool table, but the piece de resistance was the spa. Heated to 37 degrees, it was very popular with almost all the group.
Breakfast was also provided for every day of our stay, which was actually 3 nights, four days, and was generous.
We went apple picking at the orchard just up the hill, which all enjoyed, the kids canoed on the lake, and we all relaxed and unwound from our usually busy lives.
I do feel, like some of the other reviewers, that it could be difficult sharing with others, but the ambience of the place I'm sure would get over this.
The team said that had the most amazing weekend and thank you very much.
My boss accidentally brought home a key for Room 1. I will express post it back to you today. Sorry about that.
Thank you for an amazing experience for them.
THANK YOU BILPIN LODGE
Thank you Mike and Kath.
We all had such a wonderful time at Bilpin Lodge last Tuesday for my Wedding Celebrations.
We were very happy with the lodge itself. Very appropriate for what we needed, being a large group of 12.
I was very grateful to you both for being so accommodating, letting others come for breakfast, and then your generous nature of letting us use the other room to get changed for my wedding.
I don't know how we would have manage if not for your generosity.
We even had a nice time with the other guests staying at the lodge.
Loved that we could get up in the morning and walk down to the dam.
Staying at the lodge...it was just perfect..
I will be recommending (have already) Bilpin Lodge to others, and will be back to stay if ever down that way.
We stayed at Bilpin Springs Lodge over the long Easter weekend -8 adults - 4 teenagers.
We had a wonderful time, the lodge is great and the property is beautiful, plenty of space and lots to do. The fireplace was great had the fire on during our stay.
Thankyou to kath and the girls for there hospitality and the lodge was very clean and she wasn't very far away.
We met Pete the python on our first day but kept our distance.
We would definitely recommend the lodge to everyone and we will definitely be back maybe Xmas in July that would be lovely.
Regards Silvana & the group
We had a fab time and everyone would love to return to the lodge whenever I do another Sketching Trip.
So looks like I'll do something again at some time.
It was a pink/gold misty morning on Tuesday and I took this as the sun was coming through.
Use it if you wish.
Thank you to you and particularly Kath. She's a treasure.
