What an amazing experience......

Thank you Lynette for looking after us well and thank you Marcos for saying Hi. You have created an absolute gem in this place and I can't speak highly enough of it. Had a fantastic time that I'll remember for a long, long time.

Truly amazing place......

So peaceful and relaxing, want to come back in the winter and perhaps experience snow! Thanks to Jason, great host and wonderful food and wine. Playing the old vinyl records was also fun.

A great place to escape the rat race......

Those rats would never be able to find their way here! But, you're not getting away from it all...... because here you find a different kind of "all".... Peace, timelessness, contemplation, stark yet weirdly beautiful landscapes, and resilience plus survival on display. A longer stay would be great and we hope we can come back. Special mention to the hospitality of Jason. Everything was great and all done unobtrusively.

Wonderful facility......

Lasagna supper was great and the salad (with tangy dressing) - amazing. Wish I could stay longer.

We loved the peacefulness.....

Thank you Lynette, for looking after us so well after our torturous walk on the Mt Anne Circuit in the SW Wilderness. We loved the peacefulness of Thousand Lakes Lodge. Well done Marcos!

What an amazingly peaceful and beautiful place......

Raw tranquility and imposing silence, rounded off with a place to come home to in the evening that combines warmth, light and great food with diverse company. I'm stimulated and relaxed - quite delightful. I'll be back... Thank you.

There is magic and wonder to be taken from every window.......

 of Thousand Lakes Lodge! Such a homely, warm and stylish haven nestled gently in a most striking landscape. I've found so many plants and insects that I've never seen fact, I couldn't have imagined some of them! What an inspirational destination! And throw great fishing in to the mix for the ultimate trout-chaser's dream destination! What an adventure! I'll be back. Thank you, Jason, for your hospitality.

This is a unique and wonderful living experience in my life.....

I travel with two other girls for celebrating our graduation. I searched this lodge on instagram and i was amazed by the fantastic picture, then decided to book it without any hesitation!!!  To be honest, we were a bit excited and scared when driving here coz we didn't see many people and houses. Until we met a lot of wallabies and wombats; we were just super happy!!!   We felt so warm here because of the hospitality and decoration. Thousand Lakes Lodge is just cool !!! We are lucky to stay in such a new accommodation.  This lodge is successful and we hope it can overcome all difficulties to welcome guests from all around the world!

Comfortable and welcoming ......

Credit to owners for the concept and development of this site in the western lakes. Building is comfortable and welcoming and does not intrude on the wilderness environment. Thank you Jason, your friendly welcome, and attention to all guests is greatly appreciated. We certainly will encourage friends to visit and hope to return.

The chance to stop and breathe......

Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing couple of nights away. We really felt we were in the middle of nowhere and had the chance to stop and breathe at the end of a lousy year. Jason was a great host. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Wishing success for the future.

What an amazing place to stay....

Thank you so much for an enjoyable last night in the Central Highlands. What an amazing place to stay! Such a great transformation from the run down old building we explored 5 years ago! Fantastic food and can highly recommend a cocobean milk chocolate melt before bed. Hopefully we will be back to stay again, but meanwhile will highly recommend to others.

Luxury in the middle of nowhere......

 We loved spending our weekend up here, exploring such an isolated but beautiful and peaceful place. Jason greeted us as we arrived and made us feel like we were home. The facilities are terrific, food so tasty and the service was incredible. Thank you Jason for a great relaxing break. We will be back one day.

Fly fishing was top of my husband's bucket list......

What better place to experience this than Thousand Lakes Lodge.  We had a wonderful two days.  The accommodation was great and we both thoroughly enjoyed our casting lesson and afternoon fishing on the lake. Even caught a rainbow trout. We hope Thousand Lakes Lodge goes from strength to strength. We shall certainly recommend it to our friends.

Wow, what an absolute magical spot.......

from the moment you walk through the doors, you feel so welcome, a home away from home feeling that just gets you. The magestic view from every angle; there is no area of this place that just doesn't give you a surreal feeling. Food and hospitality is amazing, nothing was too hard, it was just easy. beautiful surrounds, warmth of the fires, makes you feel at home. Congratulations Marcus and team, you can feel the heart, the magic of this spot, you all have done an amazing job, clearly dedicated people who add so much to this wonderful world. We will be back, you really need 2 to 3 days to do this place justice, we are in awe of your most dedicated project. Thank you so much, we both wish yo a world of success, much respect.
