Comfortable well equipped cabin with everything we needed for our little ones. Beautiful, serene and peaceful setting. Nothing like watching the sunset with kangaroos grazing, then stargazing in front of the fire pit. Thank you for your hospitality Mel!
Our family of four with kids aged 5 and 8 stayed in this comfy cabin in Canyonleigh. The cabin is very comfortable - 2 bedrooms, comfortable beds and bedding (all new), TV + DVD, great kitchen (90 cm gas stove), washing machine, wood-oven for heating, BBQ outside on the verandah, and firepit. Our family enjoyed the large selection of board games (we did a 1000 piece disney puzzle during our stay). There are other thoughtful touches like extra blankets for snuggling on the couch, a picnic blanket and a pair of large umbrellas. It was lovely sitting on the verandah watching the breeze and kangaroos while the kids roasted marshmallows. There were heaps of kangaroos, though we missed spotting a wombat at night (a spotlight is provided for that purpose).
It is a 10-15 minute stroll past the pine trees (we collected some cones) to the river. We had a nice swim there, and breakfasted there one morning watching the mist, listening to the birdlife and glimpsed a platypus!
The kids enjoyed collecting eggs from the henhouse, and patting the horses, and generally wandering around the property. They also had a swim in the pool behind the main house.
Mel and George were great hosts. They were welcoming, available to answer questions, show us around and were generally concerned that we have a great time.
We drove through Bowral and visited the Exeter market where we stocked up on country chutney and salami and garlic.
