Overview

About the property

Resting peacefully on 5 acres amid the slopes of the Barrengarry Mountain, bounded by rainforest and magnificent views to the valley escarpments, is your opportunity to reconnect with nature and experience this little piece of paradise.

Restdown, is a delightful 1870’s settler’s homestead which was originally built in the NSW Riverina from where it was carefully dismantled and reassembled using traditional methods on its present idyllic location. Built from cypress pine drop logs and recycled materials, the cottage has been lovingly restored to maintain the historic value of the building. You will not only be graced by Restdown’s historical presence and antique/country style furniture, but by its practicality and energy efficiency. Environmentally sustainable, the water supply is tapped from a natural spring and a combination of solar and hydro generated power supplies the cottage with electricity along with bottled gas.

Escape and immerse yourself in the warmth and character of this rustic cottage. Perfect for a romantic getaway or a relaxing break with friends or family, you have everything you need for a self-catering stay. With a combustion wood fire, 2 Queen Bedrooms, an upstairs loft (sleeps 2), antique claw-foot bath, fully equipped kitchen and BBQ, Restdown offers tranquility and total privacy.

Kangaroo Valley village is a short drive away and provides a variety of cafes, the local pub and a general store where you can stock up on essentials for your stay. Explore the national parks with bush walking, mountain bike riding, canoeing and horse riding right on your doorstep.

Excellent get away.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! The house is amazing. Such a peaceful place. I could only recommend a little outdoor lighting for night time in the yard area, otherwise perfect.

Gorgeous rustic cabin in amazing location

  • 5 of 5

So lush and secluded, this cabin was just right for our stay with kids and friends. You feel like you're in a cabin in the woods (because you are!). We loved that it's off the grid and there were no downsides to that - stil had all the hot water and electricity we needed. We couldn't afford it for just our family of 4 but when splitting with friends it was perfect! Also the linens and beds were divine :)

Absolutely idyllic

  • 5 of 5

Restdown is absolutely idyllic and wants for nothing as a perfect getaway. Situated in a National Park it is in a beautiful quiet location, surrounded by wildlife. The house is a historical gem with so much character and the perfect place to truly relax & have fun whatever time of year. It is both pet & family friendly and I can't recommend it highly enough. We will definitely be back!
