Blue Sky Retreat Cottage


We are pet friendly and reasonably priced for families and guest. Feed the animals, go for walks, sit in the garden pergola and look at the view and visit our local towns.

Blue Sky Retreat Cottage

Blue Sky Cottage is the original farm house on the property. It has been renovated to make larger rooms, add an extra shower and toilet and the verandah filled in with glass to become the sunroom. It also has an interesting feature that people love. We cut a hole in the wall between the kitchen and lounge room and built the dining table in this area. It is different but works so well! The cottage is fully self-contained, although you have the choice to bring your own bedding/towels and rent the cottage at a reduced price. It sleeps up to six guests and consists of a kitchen, lounge/dining room, sunroom, three bedrooms; two bathrooms and toilets.

The cottage has a wood burning fire in the lounge room with a childproof screen. In the cooler months we always light the fire before guests arrive so that the cottage is lovely and warm when you arrive. We greet guests as they arrive and explain/show everything you need to know about the cottage. On the cooler days if guests are out, with their permission, we light the fire for them around 3-4pm each day so they come home to a warm cottage. We like to ensure our guests are comfortable. We are pet friendly please see details below.
