We have stayed at cabbage tree several times and have loved it every time. It's located in the perfect spot near a winery and is very pet friendly. It has all the luxuries of home in a peaceful, tranquil environment. Will be definitely going back.
The land that the house is set on and the area that it's in are gorgeous. Rolling green hills, a long creek with waterfalls. So many beautiful photo ops and it's right next to a winery.
It's comfortable enough with plenty of room for a couple of families. The house needs repairs though.
Once it's fixed up it will be a perfect hideaway from reality
The scenery is absolutely beautiful. The sound of nature in the morning and the views up the mountain are breath taking. We booked all three rooms and were quite comfortable and Loved that we could take our Dog with us on a weekend away. Most things are available including basic kitchen/cooking utensils, washing machine, fridge/freezer, BBQ, lamps, lounge (comfortable for 3 people), and dining room table. The kitchen and bathrooms (two toilets & two showers) are clean and there are outside lights on sensors if you arrive after dark. Though there are few things to note, firstly it is a 5 min (and 2 sec) drive down a mostly gravel path from Upper KV Road to the parking area at the house (a 4wd makes things easier & no low cars). There is no mobile reception, however there is wifi. It was warm when we were there and the house has no air con or fans, but most of the windows open (with fly screens) and the breeze is wonderful. There is a decent fire place for the colder months, and the fire wood is there providing a strong smell of fresh wood in the house. It is out in the Bush, so there are lots of animals around starting with Wombats (we were very mindful of this having our Dog with us) and including lots of bugs/spiders. It was a bit dusty so I was glad I took thongs to wear inside and shoes for outside. We are very much a city family and this is as close as we get to camping but overall we enjoyed our stay and had a relaxing weekend.
My girlfriends and I stayed here for the long weekend.
PROS: -the house itself is average but it is surrounded by beautiful scenery. Birds chirping away in the morning. The house is remote on 48 aches, plenty of exploring. (Watch out for stinging nettle)
- down the road is Yarrawa Estate. Absolutely beautiful views and the owners are so so friendly! Wines are also very tasty! Highly recommend popping down.
CONS: - we had no landline or internet...(& no mobile reception). Next day we raised this issue the company we booked through & owners could not assist.. which was pretty pathetic for amount we paid for.
A weekend away from city life was great (no internet/mobiles). Only concerned is that we wouldn't react our families to alert them that we were ok.
The company and owner did email us later on to offer us a future discount if we stayed there again.. which we probably won't..
Thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days at Cabbage Tree Farm, very relaxing and a beautiful place for long leisurely walks. All amenities were great and we are looking forward to returning in the future. Only problem is the walk from the car up to the entry at the back (especially for us over 60's) apart from that, we had a fantastic time.
