My wife and I stayed here for two nights in September (2018), it was ideal for a peaceful and relaxing stay and lived up to expectations in every respect. We found our hosts, Sean and Rosemary, very welcoming and good company, they are both excellent cooks, the food and wine were delicious including fresh produce from their own garden, and the conversation fascinating. We had the end room furthest from the dining area; it was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well furnished, with a small patio and a view down the valley to distant mountains. The lodge itself is an interesting building; architect-designed to ecological standards. Sean is an ecologist with an extensive knowledge of the local environment which he and Rosemary have campaigned tirelessly to conserve, without them and their fellow campaigners it would have been destroyed years ago. Our walk with him in the very beautiful local forest and his detailed explanation of its ecology was one of the highlights of our trip. There is good birding in the surrounding woods and fields, and pademelons (like small wallabies) can be seen by day, possums by night and there are wombats in the forest. Jackey’s Marsh is a beautiful place – long may it remain so.
