Julie Y, January 2024

Spots all over for quiet chats and large shared meals. Indoor and outdoor options for games, a swim or a quiet early morning cuppa. Plenty of parking and large comfortable bedrooms. It would also be a great space for a quilting weekend. The gardens and views of the escarpment are so lovely in any weather.

Janis I, November 2023

A stunning home. Thank you for allowing 3 generations of family to have a fantastic weekend away. We loved the pool, even in the rain! The facilities and supplies were great, we’d love to come back again! P.S. Thanks for the delicious welcome cheese and wine!

It was clean and pleasant with excellent cooking facilities. BBQ . Pool. Campfire outside and open fireplace inside. Great to chill on the dock over the dam with fish and birds. 3 generations of our family all had something to enjoy.

I had a fabulous two-night stay with my family to celebrate my 50th birthday. The house is absolutely stunning and the views and the gardens are so good for the soul. I wish we were staying longer and we’ll definitely be back.

Tanya, January 2020

We had such a wonderful time at this property. Both the interior of the home and the surrounding land are so spacious! Ideal for big groups, we never at any time felt like we were on top of each other. We had lovely group lunches most days on the long tables and as for the kids they loved to roam wild and free. They rode their bikes, played football and swam in the pool all day. We will definitely be looking to hire this place out again. We loved every minute of our stay

Bakous, January 2020
