The guesthouse boasts a king-size bed and a private ensuite bathroom. Every room is equipped with both heating and cooling systems to ensure your comfort throughout your stay.

Indulge in the spacious lounge room offering breathtaking views of the serene back paddock. The kitchen, dining room, and outdoor deck provide an ideal setting for entertaining. With 3.5 bathrooms and a separate outdoor laundry, convenience is at your fingertips. Upstairs, the TV room boasts a picturesque view of the front lake and the fully fenced solar heated pool and spa. Discover various cosy spots within the house, including the fireplace nook – a perfect retreat for reading – and the upstairs deck, an inviting space for morning yoga and breakfast.

Step onto the expansive rear deck featuring a spacious corner couch for relaxation and an oversized table accommodating up to 12 guests. A BBQ is conveniently situated on the deck, and hammocks are also available for your leisure. The fully fenced backyard offers a two-story cubby house, sandpit, and swing set, creating an ideal environment for hours of joyful play. With safety in mind, two bodies of water on the property cater to water sports enthusiasts, complete with provided life vests. Please note that due to the unfenced lakes and dams, close supervision of children is essential at all times.

Adjacent to our chicken coop, you’ll find a Pétanque court – an ideal spot for a delightful game in the late afternoon, accompanied by the mesmerising backdrop of a spectacular bush sunset.

Feel free to enjoy the daily bounty from our resident hens. Help yourself to fresh eggs each morning for a farm-to-table breakfast experience.

Keep an eye out for native wildlife that often visit the grounds – as with all wildlife please maintain your distance.
