Beautiful home in stunning location.
We had a wonderful stay in this amazing house. We so appreciated being able to bring our dog. The kennel area and fencing was perfect.

Catchup with friends
This property is a fabulous getaway. We were a crowd of 3 adults, 4 kids aged between 6 and 14 and 1 puppy. Being about 3 hours from Sydney, the drive was an easy one. The house is immaculate. Plenty of bedrooms and 2 spacious open living areas joined in between by the large dining table. Whomever is in the kitchen can easily partake in any conversation happening in the room. Plenty of games, puzzles, dvds and books to entertain. The day bed was my favourite spot of an afternoon as the sun streams in through the day bed window. Fire pit outside and fireplace inside with plenty of wood to keep you warm (or just to toast marshmallows). Although notably, the house itself wasn't cold even without the fireplace on. 2 friendly neighbourly horses were present throughout most of our stay... ready to eat any treats you may offer. Backyard is fully fenced and perfect for our very active puppy... dog kennel outside and dog bed inside. They truly have catered for everyone. Added care was taken to wrap all the throw blankets scattered around the living areas in plastic to ensure we knew they had been laundered. Plenty of additional toys are in the bunk room. Laundry is spacious with clothesline and dryer available. We also enjoyed a nice stroll down to the dam on the property. We enjoyed the place so much we didn't feel the need to venture into town-- so make sure you bring all the food and drink you need in case you decide to stay put and do the same. The hosts are extremely generous in the added extras left for guests enjoyment. ie bath salts, toiletries, chocolates. Only minor advice for those booking here-- navman tells you the property is closer to the beginning of the road than it actually is-- so keep driving a few hundred metres further than it says. We will be back. Thank you for a memorable stay.
