Our four chefs have worked in some of Australia's best restaurants and can prepare meals for all dietary requirements. All you need to do is eat and enjoy - we'll do the shopping, cooking and cleaning.

The experience of the traditional guesthouse was a very pleasant one and one which could only be achieved by some extremely capable, efficient and friendly staff. Congratulations on your choices! We were very impressed with the food. Amazing dinners, picnics, our own personal BBQ dropped off for us. We felt very spoilt!

I am going to bring my children and grandchildren to experience this extraordinary Island. The coral snorkelling, turtles and walks were the highlight of my stay. The food and service of Pinetrees Lodge was excellent.

The perfect location of Pinetrees Lodge and the beautiful grounds and excellent food made a great holiday. I loved the drinks and canapés at the boatshed. I enjoyed the glass bottom boat experience, bus trip, swimming and good weather.

I have already recommended Pinetrees Lodge too many people. It is a wonderful place to wind down and relax. The Island is such a beautiful place, the people are so friendly and so many things to do. It is paradise.

Staying at Pinetrees Lodge was a pleasurable experience for our daughter’s wedding. The whole Island has a welcoming atmosphere where push bikes help to keep us fit and ward off the extra kilos from the wonderful food!

Lord Howe Island is a real paradise! So many walks and interesting places to view the magnificent scenery. Pinetrees Lodge is a great place to stay. The rooms are very comfortable and the dining experiences are incredible, what a wonderful chef. The food and service was exceptional and watching the sunset at the boatshed with wine and canapés was the highlight of my stay. Don’t think about holidaying there – JUST DO IT!
