Absolutely loved this place! Ash the host is so welcoming upon arrival and departure. Such a good getaway cabin located amongst the forest trees. The view from the cabin is all trees, waking up to the sounds of birds and wind rustling the leaves was bliss. The fireplace we kept going the whole time to keep warm which gave the place a very cosy feel. The firepit outside was such a winner for roasting & toasting. Not hearing anything other than the sounds of nature was a good hard reset to the mind & body. Kids loved it, with the assistance of fast wifi. Definitely worth coming back to.

Incredible location; looking out from the balcony into a gully. A dip in the dam with a sauna after. Ash and Ellie were friendly, accomodating and always there to help.

The place is outstanding! Despite spending the rainiest weekend there, we thoroughly enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and the beautiful surrounding forest. The sauna added a wonderful touch, enhancing our experience. We used the outdoor fireplace near the sauna to cook a barbecue and enjoyed mulled wine, making it a fantastic weekend with friends. Ash was very friendly and helpful, assisting us with everything we needed. Highly recommend!!!"

Cosy cabin, roaring fire - perfect!
Thank you Ash for an incredible stay. I can’t recommend this place highly enough to those looking for a cosy, rustic and memorable experience in nature. Set in a beautiful and serene wood, deep amongst the gum trees, and overlooking a babbling stream - you feel like you’re a million miles away. Dead silent at night, apart from the rain stops on the roof and the crackling fire, this was the perfect autumn get away. The cabin is simple, but is clean and tidy and has everything you need. We used the fire pit in the field and enjoyed sitting around the fire, in disturbed - just with a few sheep and kangaroos for company. In the morning we used the sauna, which worked well and left us feeling, refreshed and clean! Different to the end of most camping trips! You really have the feeling that you have the whole place to yourself, and can use so many features on the property. I’d recommend to anyone who wants to nature bathe, with the the comfort of a cabin, a warm fire and total peace and quiet. Cheers!
