Home is where the Hearth is

Pemberton and the Southern Forests region is a fantastic holiday getaway for the whole family!

Donnelly Lakes is the perfect place for your next escape. Nestled on the banks of the Donnelly river with 1.6 km of private river frontage to explore and sitting in the heart of 100 acres of private forests surrounded by National parks. This is the ultimate in peace, privacy and secluded beauty.

Nature, the perfect rejuvenator

It is well known that our modern lives take a toll on us mentally, physically and spiritually. urban living and stress disconnects us from ourselves and it is more important than ever to take time out from our busy lives to reconnect back to nature and restore balance to the soul.

By choosing to stay here with us all this is possible. Many of our guests report feeling rejuvenated and refreshed, unaware of how much they needed the peace, stillness, forest, nature and time to be.

We hope you will share this little piece of paradise with us and feel it too.
