Built in 1868, Blacksmith’s Cottage combines the charm of a simple stone cottage with the ease of modern comforts. The polished hardwood floors, slate flagstones, solid timber ceilings and antique claw foot bath create a historical feel, while the wood fire, ducted heating and cooling, and modern appliances ensure your stay will be comfortable.
“We absolutely loved our stay at the Blacksmiths Cottage! It was the perfect escape. The cottage itself is so cosy and the little touches throughout are so well thought out. The garden is so beautiful, it was so nice to sit on the veranda in the mornings looking out over it in the sun. The cottage is very well equipped for cooking your own meals. Bethany was very quick to respond and kindly accommodated a slightly later check out. We will definitely be back again! Thanks so much Bethany and Max.”
Duckcottage is a five room stone settlers cottage built in 1853 on five acres of bushland at Second Valley. The property is now a refuge for wildlife so it is NOT suitable for dogs or cats. We call it 'duck' cottage because of the height of the doorways. It has been lovingly restored, and the habitat for birds and native animals has been established through revegetation. The property is secluded (there are no neighbours in sight) but it is a short drive to the beach.
“Duck cottage is lovely, charming and comfortable. We enjoyed our time there very much - we cooked dinner in, ate on the lovely wrap around patio, explored the property and slept comfortably. It’s close to beautiful beaches and we went out each day to hike in the nearby Deep Creek national park. Easy communication and great hospitality by the kind host. We stayed as a couple with a 1 year old and all had a great time. I recommend Duck Cottage!”
Our self contained bed and breakfast apartment has a lounge room/kitchenette, bedroom and spa/shower bathroom.
“Ron & Lynns place was exactly what we needed. A perfect spot to base yourself for trips to many of the beautiful local beaches or hiking in the Deep Creek area. Ron & Lynn went above and beyond to accomodate our trip and we would highly recommend a stay. James”
