This is a very special place. Beautifully appointed and set amongst magnificent gardens it is a location to relax and unwind. Rightly so, Genevieve is a proud (and welcoming) host.

I can easily describe Plane Trees as a "piece of heaven". Genevieve was a wonderful host and the house and surroundings were beautiful. I was looking for the perfect place for our 'girls' weekend (old school friends). We laughed, made bruschetta (courtesy of Genevieve's garden), picked berries for breakfast and slept in comfy beds. Thank you, we'll be back. x

This is a lovely property in a great location. Genevieve was lovely & kindly adjusted our check in time to suit an appointment we had nearby. We stayed here as a group of 6 & it's an ideal place to share with friends. Walking to Stanley pub for dinner is highly recommended.

Beautiful house in a beautiful country setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our break away, and Planetrees Lodge very much lived up to the photo's and the write up. The fire was warm and welcoming, the fittings and furnishings luxurious. There was a well equipped kitchen, which was great for us as we love to cook...there was also a very welcome breakfast starter with eggs, milk, bread and butter provided for our first night. The local pub was literally a 5 minute walk and it too offered a winter refuge with open fires, friendly chat and great food. The Stanley state forest made for some amazing hiking with beautiful scenery and great off lead walking with the dog. We also enjoyed a day out in Beechworth to peruse the shops and stop by at the craft brewery. I'd highly recommend for a weekend break of longer, would be great for groups also. We'll be back!

I am a retired architect. My major interests are world travel, all things cultural, music gardening and anything creative! I have travelled widely and after 30 years returned to this beautiful region of my childhood. I have created Planetrees over ten years as a vision capturing beautiful memories/experiences of life lived in Australia and abroad.
I cherish great friends, good food and wine, the natural beauty, simplicity and freshness of the country, and my mini dachshund, Zsa Zsa. It is a joy to meet new people, to share the pleasures of Planetrees and this region and to see my guests creating memorable experiences together.
