This was the second time we have had the pleasure of staying at Margaret & Gary's cabins. The first being our honeymoon, this time as our last 'couple getaway' before our baby arrives.
There are two cabins on the property, and we stayed in Cedar Cabin both times. The serenity and privacy of their property can not be rivaled. From the minute you step into the cabin, you are in complete peace and quiet with no disruptions from the outside world.
Margaret & Gary have gone above and beyond to ensure your stay is enjoyable and relaxing. You could quite easily enter on your first day, and never willingly leave for the rest of your stay.
The kitchen is perfect for those who do not feel like eating out every night (although be aware there is no oven; just a stove top and microwave). It is well-stocked with equipment, including a full-sized fridge freezer, pots and pans, and a dishwasher. Pay the little extra to upgrade from the breakfast basket (orange juice, milk, bread, yoghurt, condiments, muesli and wheetbix - enough for two days) to the country breakfast (the above, as well as eggs, tomato and bacon) and enjoy bacon and eggs on the glorious deck. Make sure to partake of the local gourmet plunger coffee they have available as well!
The shower is a beautiful feature, in seclusion whilst being able to look out on the hills beyond. The outdoor spa in its own little 'nook' also has beautiful views and a gorgeous garden surrounding, perfect for some private indulgence with wine and cheese.
There is nothing like watching the sun go down over the hilltops as you rest in one of the hammocks on the deck and take in the sounds of the birds who will keep you company.
There is a fireplace (with plenty of wood to keep you going for 2-3 days straight outside) which was perfect for the cooler nights whilst we were there, and the cabin is well stocked with both DVDs and board games to while away wet days and chilly nights.
Margaret and Gary have also made up some wonderful 'suggestion books' full of information on the local area and things you can do such as drives, galleries, arts & crafts in the local area and nice places to eat and drink at during your stay. My husband and I recommend Utopia at Bangalow (breakfast, lunch & dinner) and the Sunday night roast dinner at the nearby Eltham Pub.
Both of us agree that there simply is nowhere else like Tallaringa Views. If you are looking for a private retreat to recharge and relax with the love of your life - this is it. Indulge. Rest. Relax. You'll never want to go home.
