Our Cottages


Hidden in the Rainforest

Each cottage is hidden in its own separate enclave within the rainforest, offering complete seclusion, both from each other and the outside world. They are completely out of sight, overlooking beautiful fern gullies and a private bushland lake, with the sound of the babbling Hermitage Creek in the background.

Amazing Wildlife

There are no neighbours – only the wildlife, including riotous parrots and cockatoos, kookaburras, wombats, wallabies, echidnas and platypus (if you look and listen very carefully). You can enjoy a unique part of Australia, a temperate rainforest with native flora and fauna featuring magnificent wildlife.

Scenic Outdoor Decking

All of these wonders can be enjoyed from the large elevated deck of each cottage. Or through the floor to ceiling windows that frame the wonderful backdrop. Woodlands offers a rare opportunity for guests to enjoy this magnificent environment without compromising on comfort, luxury or the integrity of the natural environment.

Perfect Hideaway

The cottages act as a perfect “hideaway” – protecting the rainforest from human interference while allowing people to enjoy the beauty of the forest, without the need to venture out into “the wild”.

Rainforest Furniture

The superbly designed cottages are split-level open plan with huge windows that open on to a wallpaper of living forest. Crafted from local materials, polished mountain ash floorboards, myrtle beech benches and radially sawn yellow stringybark exterior cladding, the cottages blend into the surrounding bush so perfectly that they seem part of the rainforest furniture.

Fully equipped

They each have large brick open fireplaces, central heating & cooling, fully equipped kitchens, king beds, full surround sound systems with DVD, video and CD players for your enjoyment where you will be topped up with wood for a cosy evening fire (winter months’ outside fire restriction only).

Sunken Spa

Music is even piped into the spectacular glass walled spa room. The huge oval therapeutic quality spa with high pressure air blower and heated water jets that provide a true aquatic massage, invites total relaxation. The spa is sunken into a heated tiled floor and sits before a bi-fold glass wall that opens onto the large deck overlooking the fern gully. This truly is luxury in the wild…
“Easy review as this place has everything, and does everything their website indicates! The cabin is ultra cosy and practical! The spa and serenity is exactly what we hoped for. Reception never too far away if you had a problem which we didn’t. Everything pre ordered was there and as described. Local area for driving is stunning and seems a world away from the big city. Local hotel, The Black Spur Inn, is very convenient and were kind enough to drop us off and pick us up…. We’ll be back tho! Preferably when it’s cold to soak up that warm spa and log fire ambience!”
