The only regret we had from visiting here was that it was only one night. The owner Sue couldn’t have been more welcoming. We had a suite in the main building which was up in the canopy of the trees, it treated us to some wonderful views, with some beautiful bird sightings. We did not want to leave.

A beautiful location in the bush but close to everything. Sue is a very friendly host and couldn't do enough for our overnight stay. An excellent breakfast spread made it all worthwhile. Also we went to see Elton John at Sirromet Winery on the greens.

We booked at 7.30 pm on a Friday and arrived late after 9pm, didn't know what to expect and when we walked into the cabin -pet friendly instant calming effect. Cabin is self contained, coffee captual machine available and twining tea, fridge had sweet treats complementary as we did to go to Woolworths 5 mins away to pick up what you need as you won't want to leave. Once you enter the cabin The deck is so big hot and it's enclosed.with fly screen so no need to worry about mozzies. Our furbaby loved the deck with smells and the rustle on the trees, he slept in the deck. It was that beautiful, I feel so relaxed as am writing this can't wait to return to this beautiful place. Note: all dogs must be on a lead when outside the cabin.

What a fantastic place with nothing too much trouble for the lovely owner Sue. Our few days spent there were perfect in every way. Self catering cottages in the middle of unspoilt forests. Sue catered a lunch for a family reunion for 13 adults and 5 children under the age of 5. Delicious three course meal which she catered, served and cleared single handed. First time we had been together for over 20 years! What a wonderful event she put on for us. Don’t hesitate. Stay here as long as you can!!

If you just need a nice quiet getaway in beautiful nature, this place is great. This property offers a B&B rooms in the main building or self contained cabins. I stayed in a tree top cabin. You can drive right up to your cabin and park next to it for easy loading arrival and departure. It’s quite a modern little cabin and was very clean and tidy. Not at all damp, dusty or anything like that. They are far apart enough that you are secluded and it’s very quiet and relaxing. It’s definitely not luxurious like a spicers or 5 star but it’s comfortable and very well accommodating for all basic needs. Kitchen has no oven but has a 2 burner hot plate and a microwave and dishwasher. Good sized tv can be watched from bed or surrounded by beautiful trees on a screened off deck. I’ll definitely go again for the great price for this escape. Just note there is no internet in the cabins.
