After that take time out to soak up the atmosphere in our spa baths or have a massage from a therapist that will visit the cottage, before hitting the sack to recharge the batteries and awaken to the sound of native birdsong, welcoming in the next day. Both cottages have two bedrooms and are designed with a rustic feel to blend in with the tranquil rainforest setting. To compliment this each is furnished with an array of eclectic furniture providing all the creature comforts of home. The main bedrooms have ceiling fans and French doors opening up onto the verandah to catch the cool summer breezes. Whilst during the winter months you can enjoy the warmth of the wood burning stove in the cozy living room. With mountains and beaches virtually at your front door there is an endless list of activities to entertain you during your stay. All this can be yours in just over 2 hours drive from both Sydney or Canberra so why not book your next escape today! Please indicate if you want linen to be supplied for $50 when making a booking and also indicate if you are bringing a dog.More

Interaction with guests
We find that our guests welcome privacy and a feeling of remoteness. Therefore, we make it easy for you to enter and leave the property via key access. We are always happy to meet our guests but we leave you to your own devices unless you contact us. We are almost always available and our house (although you can't see it) is a couple of minutes away. Before your stay, we provide you with some suggestions of things to in the area. If you have any questions or issues during your stay, please don't hesitate to call us.

About the neighbourhood
Both Berry and Kangaroo Valley are very popular places to stay because of their great shops, cafes and restaurants. Red Dog Retreat is situated in the ancient rainforest above Kangaroo Valley and is teeming with birds and other wildlife. It's a great place to visit if you want to get out of the city and experience some beautiful countryside. Beaches are only 20 minutes drive away with dog friendly areas. There are great opportunities for kayaking, walking and cycling nearby.
Getting around
You will need a car to get around this area as there is no public transport that comes to our suburb. Cycling is also a very popular way to get around. If you want to go out to the local restaurants during your stay and don't want to drive, you can get a taxi to come up and get you.
