We are very informal here at the Lodge, we want you to feel like you are “home from home”. With that said the one thing we do ask is that you please have consideration for other guest’s especially in the dinning room. please refrain from going shirtless or from wearing vest’s in the main building. We do not ask you to wear anything special for meals just please be your courteous selves.
We do have room temperature and chilled, purified water dispenser’s in the main building. We try to use as few, throw away plastic bottles as possible so please feel free to fill up your water bottles from these whenever you like. If you didn’t bring a water bottle you can get one from the Bar fridge and then continue to refill it for free. We do not charge for water unless its in the form of pre packed bottles in the Bar fridge.
TEA AND COFFEE
Fresh brewed coffee and a selection of teas are available free of charge in the Dinning room from 0600 in the morning, until the end of our evening meal. Also available is a small selection of biscuits, snacks and some seasonal fruit. We do not charge for this service but there is a jar on the table which you are more than welcome to throw some $’s in if you love coffee and biscuits.
MAIN BUILDING TIMINGS
Our main building is open daily from 06:00 until 22:00 (6am thru 10pm). Feel free to enjoy the space, between those times. Please note its also the kids front room so you might have to put up with Pepper pig on the TV occasionally or the boys doing homework after school.
Our meal timings are not set in stone and are greatly dependent on you the guest and your schedule or preference. Breakfast is normally served between 0730 and 0930. We ask for your Breakfast choice and preferred timings at the end of Dinner the night before. You can decide if you would like to eat with the other guests family style or do your own thing at your own time. (The best birding on the property is between 06:30 and 07:30 ) Dinner however is served at 19:00 or 7pm and unless we have late arrivals or you chose to eat out, everyone joins together for Dinner. Lunch is by request only.
We regularly cater for Vegan, Vegetarian, Pescatarian, Gluten and Lactose free diets.
Menus are set based on guests dietary restrictions or requests.
Crooked Tree Lodge serves family style meals in the impressive but homey dining room.
