The window nook was lovely at night, we curled up and watched the sun go down. I did plan on cooking but after a bottle of wine we ended eating snacks and chocolate which in my mind is a complete meal. There is a town with a Coles and Woolies 15 minutes drive if you do need provisions.
The only downside for me was the bed upstairs, the child in me loved the cubby-house feeling but the grownup did not enjoy the lack of functionality in the space.
The roof is low so you can’t sit up in bed and the only charging port is on the right-hand side halfway down the bed so I copped a bruise to the leg when I bumped into my charger in the middle of the night. The bed was comfortable and I thoroughly enjoyed the soft linen bedding, so overall it was a restful night. It’s worth noting every cabin has its own configuration and not all have the cubby house style loft bedroom if that’s a concern.
We woke with the sun streaming through the bay window to a cacophony of kookaburras, magpies, and lorikeets chattering which was really lovely. Dave got the fire started so we could toast bread for breakfast while I made some coffee. I’m not sure if I was doing it wrong, but by the time the slow drip filled my cup, the coffee was cold so if like me you need a caffeine hit first up, maybe bring your own instant coffee.
Sadly the stay was over all too soon, just as we started relaxing it was time to leave. If it’s available (they’re pretty solidly booked but have a waitlist) stay for two days. It took the first night to start settling into the slower pace and switch off.
Would we do it again? When the new cabins open up in Queensland we’re ready.
