About Maxine Whittaker
When our daughter decided to get married we searched for a nice place in the area for her guests to stay and for the newlyweds to spend their wedding night. We struggled to find exactly what we were after so we decided to build our own house. Our daughter was married in our garden just 20 metres from Hickory Moon. Unfortunalely Hickory Moon was not finished in time for her wedding, but it is finished now and we look forward to welcoming guests from all corners of the world to enjoy our beautiful house and the amazing scenery. It's big sky country up here and it is breathtaking.
Maxine Whittaker purchased this House in 2018
Why Maxine Whittaker chose Hazelgrove
We are located in a rural area yet we are just 5 minutes drive into Oberon. Hickory Moon is a peaceful place, you can do as little as you like and you may well find that you have lost an hour or two just looking at the view or watching the wedge-tailed eagles circling overhead. At night you can turn all the lights off and watch the twinkling lights of Bathurst in the distance or look upwards and marvel at the Milky Way. The house is totally private and designed to be your little piece of heaven.
What makes this House unique
Hickory Moon is built with an industrial vibe. We had to have a beam across the roof to comply with snow loading and on closer inspection the Council decided we needed two beams instead of one. So we made the second beam a bit of a feature however we do hope it does not detract from the view. Everything in the house is new except for 2 chests of drawers. All linen, pillows, beds, furniture, cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery, lounges, chairs and appliances are brand new.

Our 25th Wedding Anniversary getaway
A heavenly9 nights were spent here celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary.
We had beautiful crisp sunny days, a day spent up in the moving cotton candy clouds, fabulous sunsets & sparkling Bathurst night lights.
The views were picture perfect with endless wonderful cloud watching.
We got SNOW! 4hrs of standing at the window like kids...even had a play outside in it! WOW what a place to share our love !

Awesome place for retreat
The house is pearched on a gentle hill and facing the north west. Able to see the sunset on the left and see the landscape change through the day. The house is new and well kept. The king bed is firm and has a pillow top which suits us well like what we have. Love to idle on the rotating round sofa. The owner, Maxine, is helpful with directions and is couple of minutes away. No worries if you need help. The house is well insulated and has external covered with colorbond. The occasion contraction of the colorbond gave a banging sound which initially worries a city dweller like us but it has gone unnoticed after a while. There is no wifi inhouse, but has good data internet connection...then again go cold turkey with the internet when you are out there.
On the whole, we love the place as it is spacious and peaceful for get away from the city, and is not too far from the city.
Thank you Vincent for your wonderful review. We are so glad you were able to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of Hickory Moon. We have not had any issues with guests needing wifi as the mobile data reception is outstanding and guests tend to use their own data. We can't get broadband where we are unfortunately. I agree with you, that cold turkey with the internet is ideal at Hickory Moon. It's the perfect spot to unwind from the world. We hope you will return one day to visit us again.
Some of the local attractions include Mayfield Garden (just 20 minutes away), Jenolan Caves, Kanangra Walls, and the cities of Bathurst and Lithgow. The area has numerous small villages with great pubs for a lazy lunch. https://www.visitoberon.com/
