Nestled in the picturesque Margaret River Region - characterised by a ruggedly beautiful coastline and majestic native forests - Cape Lodge oozes romance. With just a handful of rooms and suites within forty acres of parkland, intimacy and seclusion is guaranteed. Explore the area's enchanting vineyards and boutique wineries hand-in-hand, learning about the process before tasting the beautiful wine. Take a private boat ride to a pristine, sheltered beach, or wander along coastal trails and into limestone caves. As evening falls, marvel at the breathtaking Australian sunset, before dining at the pretty lakeside restaurant, sampling the freshest local and home-grown produce.
Spectacular Humpback and Southern Right whales make their way annually to Margaret River from Antarctica, making Cape Lodge the perfect base - between June and September - from which to encounter these mesmerising creatures on an unforgettable boat trip. The striking Blue whale, the largest mammal in the world, can also be seen in Margaret River's waters, whilst Geographe Bay, just north of the river, has become a world-famous location to experience the unique site of Blue whales and their calves relaxing and splashing in the protected waters - close enough to Cape Lodge for a once-in-a-lifetime day trip.
There is an 18-hole golf course just fifteen minutes away at Dunsborough Lakes Golf Course.
