Where you’ll be

Porongurup, Western Australia, Australia

Our family has been in the Porongurup for over 70 years and this beautiful location never ceases to inspire us. The landscape is warm, inviting, safe, quiet, and inspiring, where you can immerse yourself in nature.
You will feel immediately relaxed, hearing the birds flittering around and the wind in the trees. Then you gaze across the plain to the Stirling Ranges. It really is a Mountain Retreat.
Our nearest neighbour is almost a kilometre away.
The property is adjoining the National Park and looking up to the mountains it feels like it is our back yard. And it literally is. It is unlikely you will meet anyone else on your wanderings other than Mike your host.
Retreat from noise, neighbours, worries about security and safety. Turn off your smart phone and turn on to the magnificent landscape, wildlife, wildflowers, majestic forest, big skies, panoramic views, and the excitement of inspirational walks hikes and climbs to places few get to see.

Hi! I really enjoy helping guests, find authentic, local, off-the-beaten-track experiences so they get the best from their stay. My deep knowledge of the Porongurups and this region has come from a life of adventure and exploring every part of this slice of heaven. My favourite feeling is when guests come back from finding a secret place that I've told them about and they really feel it was special for them. I love being in the accommodation business because people arrive wanting adventure, relaxation, reconnection to nature and family time or time with their partner. They all get what they looking for here and leave happier. What could be better? Mike Thorn Thorns Mountain Retreats

During your stay

We call ourselves a retreat because of the seclusion and privacy our location provides. No noise, no neighbours just nature.
Mike is a warm, knowledgeable and considerate host who always is delighted to share his knowledge and unbounded enthusiasm for the experiences his guests can have here.
When possible he will meet you on arrival or during your stay. He will mostly text first to see if it is a good time to meet with you. It depends on if you are on the Telstra network.
Mike really enjoys explaining all the wonderful things you can do here that are available only to his guests . He has created special maps to guide you on walking trails to rocks, caves and peaks nearby. Local articles and a full history of the property written by him enrich the experience. Guests love the fact they are getting deeper knowledge available nowhere else.
At the right time and, if invited, Mike is happy to sit down on the verandah and share a glass of wine. However, if seclusion and privacy without host interaction is what you wish for let him know and he will make sure that happens. Whatever you came here for, he will support you in having that experience.
