State forest backdrop. 2 hectares of land. Ideal for bushwalking, mountain biking, star gazing, solitude, writing a bad (or even a good) novel, cooking, drinking wine and playing scrabble. An ideal southern highlands base for exploring; a lovely, back to basics weekend getaway for friends and family. Comfortable but basic house with separate writer's studio. The house is rustic. This is not 5 star (but we like it that way). Strictly bring your own sheets, towels and bedding.


We have had people who, like us, love the house for its back to basic "rough around the edges" slightly dusty, slightly quirky, country feel and the beauty of the land and the surrounding forest. We have also had some less enthusiastic feedback from folks that may have been looking for the super clean room in a freshly renovated new place with turned down sheets in a Bowral B & B. If you're looking for a space that falls into the latter category (and we do understand the appeal of those places too) please don't book our place (at its very reasonable rate) and then tell us that the floors are a bit dusty, or that you can't see your reflection in the toilet water. We are totally happy to deal with any reasonable requests for guidance etc - but once you book, most of your practical queries should be addressed in the house manual on this site.

Доступно гостям

You'll have the run of the house and the land. Pets are welcome...there is even a pet door. The road is very quiet and your pet should not be in any danger - but the fencing is not reliable if your pet is a real wanderer. Bring your own sheets and towels!


We don't clean the house to anything even approaching hotel type standards. It is a farmhouse. We work on a trust system, so all guests must leave the house in the same state they find it. Please make sure washing up is done...cleaned, dried, put away. Give the house a sweep or vacuum and give the bath and toilet a quick clean when you go. We want you to love the house and come back again. We rely on people to do the right thing. We don't charge a cleaning fee. There is no dishwasher.

Другие важные подробности

Bring own sheets and towels. You must clean up after yourselves at the end of your stay - see house rules. No cleaning fee applies. The house has only tank/rain water - fine for showering and cleaning teeth etc but at this stage we recommend filtering or boiling it before drinking it... we ask that guests be mindful that water is a scarce (URL HIDDEN) no 30 minute showers etc please...!

It is not a rustic place. It’s an abandoned place. There is mould everywhere with foul smell, fridge is full of sour or half eaten food from previous travellers, bugs, dirt, mud, salty bed sheets and couch. Cleanliness is non-existent. It is a one bedroom house with two beds in the dining room. DO NOT TRUST THE PHOTOS AND HE DESCRIPTION. It is not rustic. It fees like it’s been abandoned.

Ответ от David:
I guess we have to take the good with the bad...but really such a bizarre, unfair review (in amongst a whole series of people who've loved the place) from someone who clearly did not read the detailed description on the site, did not contact us to express concerns and purported to cancel at 11.55pm on the night of their 1 day stay. The main house is 2 bedroom, one with a double bed and another with 2 singles - we're happy to provide a floor plan sketch - and there's a double sofa bed in the (yes, very rustic and basic but perfectly serviceable) detached studio. Jiwoong was good enough to photograph: 1. some mould specs on the bottom of the shower curtain, 2. a stain on one of the oven mitts; 3. a couple of dead insects; and 4. the grey tank water in the toilet bowl. I was considering adding these photos to the site...Yes, we leave some (mostly non-perishable) food in the fridge. If, by accident, we've left some milk in there that is past its use by date, while you could drink it, see if it is sour, photograph our oven mitts and then check out at midnight (if that's your kind of weekend getaway) our suggestion is that you simply don't drink the milk, or even considering throwing it out. This place is much loved by its owners (we stay there all the time - mid week and weekends). As we state in the description, it is not a fancy Bowra(URL HIDDEN)but it sleeps 6 in comfort with 2 dedicated bedrooms plus a decent sized L shaped eat in kitchen and loungeroom and enclosed verandah - plus the studio - and costs $220 for a night. Ignore this review, read the description carefully, look at the photos, have realistic expectations and you'll love the place. Salty bed sheets? We state clearly in about 3 places all over the site "bring your own sheets and towels" - if you want to pre-salt them, that is fine with us.

Rustic back to basics accommodation in a beautiful setting. Our kids had a ball roaming around the gardens and in the adjacent national park. The main house was warm though a little dusty and not suitable for those with allergies. The separate studio is a work in progress-more of a rumpus without curtains and a bit chilly. Dave was very easy to communicate with and happy to help.
