The Owner Pleun has just rebuilt a DC3 Dakota and fitted it out as luxury accommodation. It comprises kitchen, sleeping area, shower room and cockpit with all working instruments. We stayed in it for two nights looking out at the peace and quiet of the Stirling Ranges and the night sky full of stars. Hennie, Pleun's wife is a great...

We stayed in the Winery Quarters. The accommodation was a gift for a birthday to my husband, so we arrived not knowing what to expect. Hennie warmly greeted us and showed us to our accommodation which was so well appointed with everything we needed. The decor is quirky but very tasteful. We looked at all the accommodation and they are...

This is the second time we have stayed in this beautiful part of the world. The owners are so kind and thoughtful. Their homes are so cute and clean. It is near the Stirling Range National Park so can hike many terrific mountains.

This place is beautiful and so relaxing because it is off the beaten track. I stayed with friends who had been here before and recommended it. The couple who have built and furnished these rooms, cottages have given them a unique character. We stayed in the Dutch house with all the pig ornaments (there were 6 of us, so 4...

Booked at the Lily for 2 nights with our teenage daughter. Stayed in the Miller's quarters. The whole experience was fantastic. Stunning views to the Porongurups and surrounding area. The self contained accommodation offered everything we needed. Games, music and books in the room added to the relaxed nature of the experience. Hosts Pleun and Henne are so welcoming and...

What an absolutely beautiful place to stay! We stayed in the Dutch Cottage. So much character and charm. The attention to detail is a credit to Hennie and Pluen. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, warm, comfortable and well appointed. Perfectly located for exploring the Stirling Ranges. I would highly recommend you stay here.

We have been coming to the Stirling Ranges for quite a few years now, but had never stayed at The Lily before. I'm very glad we did this time. We had a fabulous weekend staying in their quirky, homely and comfortable accommodation. We stayed in the Millers Quarters which had a small kitchen and lounge area with a wood fire,...

What a beautiful little place! As soon as you walk into reception you feel at home. My friend and I spent one night in the winery quarters. What a gorgeous little cottage, everything was thought of. The breakfast basket was lovely! The Lily is a must stay if visiting the Stirling Ranges.

The DC3 has been fitted out magnificently and is a credit to the owners. Our stay was very peaceful and we experienced great service. Would recommend the breakfast basket as it includes a small loaf of home made bread among the goodies. To Pleun and Hennie thanks for saving a Dakota and giving her such a great resting place.
