About the property

The hideaway of your dreams nestled high up on the edge of an ancient rainforest.

Featured in the SMH Good Weekend - 52 Weekends Away for 2014

This secluded retreat offers peace and privacy, helping you to escape the stresses of everyday life whilst admiring the beauty of a rainforest teaming with wildlife.

Whether its a romantic getaway or a relaxing break with friends and family, Red Dog Retreat is the place for you. It also offers you the option of bringing your dog and save on those kennel fees!

In summer, you can be on the beach in 20 minutes and then come home to the seclusion and cooler mountain breezes on Cambewarra Mountain which overlooks most of Shoalhaven. Seven Mile Beach at Shoalhaven Heads is dog friendly, so your canine friend will be happy too!

Enjoy the fantastic shops and award winning restaurants of Berry or Kangaroo Valley and then wind down at sunset on your covered veranda with a refreshing glass of something cool while you spot our resident wombats and birdlife.

In winter you can snuggle up in front of the wood burning stove. 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.

The cottage has two bedrooms and is 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 bedroom has a 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 cosy 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 2.5 hours drive from both Sydney or Canberra so why not book your next escape today!

I the calendar is busy, we have another cottage so give the owner a call to see if the second cottage is free. Each sleeps a maximum of 4 people. Many people book both cottages for groups of up to 8 people; it is the perfect location to spend quality relaxing time with your friends or family. The cottages are about 70 metres apart and are on different elevations so offer complete privacy if required. Ask the owner if you wish to book both cottages.

Cosy cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing weekend at this cosy little cabin nestled amongst shrubs and ferns filled with colourful birds. Sally and Ian were the perfect hosts providing fresh eggs and a plentiful supply of firewood. The cottage was well-equipped and delightfully situated on a hill overlooking the property. We enjoyed the local wine and produce of Kangaroo Valley and were quite sad to leave this little oasis. We'll definitely return!

Stop the World... we want to get off!

  • 4 of 5

Red Dog is truly a retreat, A jewel in lush green scenery, designed by a Master Landscaper! Silence. Good starting point for excursions. High quality bedding & kitchen equipment - Sally must be a good cook, she knows what to provide. Not much space, so don't bring too much stuff. The heater was on when we arrived - so welcome! Maybe a little help with directions to places, as the map in handbook isn't detailed enough; but lovely info on animals (wombats, lyrebirds, etc). We wish we could come again.
