About this listing

The Robertson Roundhouse is a quirky, romantic, wooden cottage nestled in magical gardens in the heart of the Southern Highlands and 1.5 hours from Sydney.

The unique design is based on a traditional Mongolian yurt and sleeps up to four guests (master bedroom on ground floor, double mattress in open loft) in comfort.

Search 'Robertson Roundhouse' and 'Domain' in your search engine to read the recent feature story.

The space

The unique home is best suited for two, but sleeps up to four guests.

Robertson Roundhouse features:
• a central living room with dining table, couches and beautiful combustion fire (fire-wood provided)
• entertainment facilities including flat-screen TV, Apple TV, DVD player and sound system
• board-games and plenty of books
• well-equipped kitchen including bread maker, and BBQ on deck
• bathroom with shower and plenty of hot water

The master bedroom is on the ground floor and features a queen-sized bed. A double mattress is located upstairs in the loft, accessed by a ladder.

When nestled by the fire inside, make sure to look up to the beautiful timber ceiling and watch as day turns into night through the many glass windows in this treasured home.

Autumn and Winter provide many beautiful clear days and cool nights. The house is perfectly heated by a slow combustion fire. Electric blankets, blankets and doonas are provided on all beds. Throws are provided in the lounge/sunroom areas for curling up on the sofa.

The expansive verandah makes for a beautiful place to read the papers in the morning, soak up the sun, enjoy a gin and tonic or a cuppa, listen out for the sounds of nature and enjoy a visit from the local King Parrots, Rosellas and Bower Birds that call the gardens home.

Robertson Roundhouse is also surrounded by local farms so don’t be surprised to see sheep dotted in paddocks, or hear the occasional moo from nearby cows.

Also available on the property is the rustic Studio – a special two-level studio full of natural light and surrounded by native wildlife in the midst of nature. Bring along your easel and paints, or sewing machine and let the ambiance and heat from the studio’s combustion stove fuel your creative juices.

Had an amazing stay at this unique yurt, I'd totally recommend it! Great location to explore the southern highlands. The wood burning stove and remote feel surrounded by green trees was our favourite part. So cosy and relaxing, we'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

Such a great roundhouse, we had a great time getting ready before a wedding in the area and a slow morning the next day. We cooked in the little kitchen, had a little walk around the garden and fed the birds, and lit a fire, it was very homely and comfortable - would recommend in a heartbeat!
