The Lakeside Lodge at Merribrook Retreat is a well loved area, a little like the ski lodge without the snow!
If rammed earth walls could talk, many a tale would be exchanged on the life of this delightful room, especially times shared around the roaring winter open wood fire.
Free Wifi is offered for emails.
A free local phone is availble for booking restaurants and taxis. This phone accepts phone cards so you can ring mobiles and anywhere in the world. We sell phone cards.
The Lakeside Lodge’s day begins with a fabulous breakfast and guests relaxing at small tables by the winter open wood fire or outside on the deck, checking emails, maybe seeking local advice on their day’s activities. Sometimes that involves a hard decision between the pool, the lake or the lush gardens for lazing!
During the day guests can wander in and out, borrow a book, a DVD or enjoy a tea or coffee on the verandah or curl up in winter by the open wood fire. The Lodge provides another relaxing venue away from your villa.
A BBQ on the verandah is popular in the evening for those who have been enthusiastic to buy local produce.
The commercial kitchen is also available in the evening for your use and features a gas stove, micro wave and cooking implements.
Gourmet Platter… We can make a lovely platter for you but we do need a couple of day’s notice so we can buy all the ingredients. Do ring/ email if you would enjoy this option.
Buying food…We do not sell food at Merribrook but we are 1.5 kms from Olio Bello lunch restaurant, 4km from the Deer farm shop and 6.4 km from Cowaramup where there is a baker, a butcher, a deli, a fruit and veg shop and a general store. The supermarkets in Margaret River are open to 8.00pm daily except on a public holiday when their opening hours are reduced.
