The Retreat

This secluded and luxurious self-contained log cabin can provide accommodation for up to six people with complimentary continental breakfast supplied daily. Situated within easy driving distance from Dunedin as well as The Catlins and the beginning of Central Otago, Cascade Creek Retreat offers the opportunity to relax and enjoy its stunning immediate surrounds or head away for some lovely day trips during guests stay. A true highlight for guests is the unique opportunity to enjoy the secluded, private and beautiful views while thoroughly relaxing in the 2 steaming hot outdoor baths. Plumbed directly to the Retreat so there is instant hot water, a bubble bath underneath the stars or a hot soak, perhaps with a glass of wine, after exploring the numerous private walking trails is a truly luxurious way to finish the day at Cascade Creek Retreat.

5 Beds | Sleeps 6 


The adorable main room of our lodge takes you up a rustic staircase and aloft to spectacular views of the native bush outside. This room boasts a divine super king bed, with the ability to have this split into 2 king singles upon request. The second bedroom is conveniently located downstairs just off the main living area and also offers the choice of a super king bed configuration or alternatively, the super king bed can also be split into 2 king singles upon request.

A modern twist to the bedding is the ‘cupboard wall bed’ – a queen sized bed that can be pulled down off the wall in the main cabin room at bedtime. When not in use, it conveniently tucks back against the wall to provide more space and comfort in the lounge room.
