About the property


A traditional B&B (daily rates are for each room) with 4 bedrooms, all with ensuites,built on solar passive principles. Rated four star by AAA Star Rating. Rural outlook and proximity to beaches (20 min)and forest (5 min). Visit the lovely towns of Harrington, Laurieton, Kendall, Comboyne. Have a spa, feed the chickens, pick avocadoes, macadamias, mandarins and oranges (in season), walk in the State Forest. This is just what you would want your rural retreat to be! 500 metres off the Pacific Highway, 30 min to Port Macquarie. Stay one night to refresh yourself as you drive north/south, come for a weekend break or stay a few days to explore the neighbourhood - there is more to do in this area than you would imagine! Jan will cook a delicious breakfast for you - other light meals available - and suggest events and places to go to in the area. Wheelchair accessible room. SPECIAL RATES FOR GROUPS OF UP TO 8 PEOPLE.

There is good cross ventilation - the bedroom ceilings are raked, with double-hung windows and ceiling fans. There is a 'chimney' in each room which takes any hot air up and out of the 'turret' which is built over the bedrooms. The living room has louvre windows to the north and the south so the NE breezes in the summer time blow through the building. The Lounge Room has bay windows, some brick walls and a polished concrete floor so it is warmed by any sun in the winter time.

Families love to stay here as there are 4 bedrooms off a central hall, all with ensuites. Different generations can have their own space and have combined activities in either the living room, dining room or lounge room.

Pets love it here as there is a large grassed area for them to run around, front and back verandahs to rest on, and polished concrete floors for when they want to spend time with their owners, inside.

Rate of $125/night for two people includes a full breakfast.

Friendly and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This is great B and B! We were greeted by Jan with a kind offer of a cup of tea and home made biscuits. Jan was the most fantastic host as she was so friendly and welcoming and offered our dog a bowl of water and allowed him to run around her large fenced yard. The room was great and the breakfast was excellent ! We had a massive storm that night and Jan even allowed us to have our Border Collie inside if he was frightened! We really appreciated this. We highly recommend this bed and breakfast!

Great stopover spot

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 5 with young girls, this was a great place to stop to break up our trip from Lismore to Newcastle, not far off the highway but far enough that you can't hear or see the highway and the traffic. The location and the 2 rooms we had were as described in both the words and the photo's. Jan pointed us to the little coastal township of Harrington, about 15mins drive away, for dinner with directions to a number of places to eat.

Breakfast was again as described with Jan cooking up eggs for my wife and supplying a range of cereals, museli, yoghurt, freshly cut fruit salad etc for the rest of us.

We would consider staying again if we find ourselves travelling through that part of Australia again.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful B&B! My daughter and I stayed for 1 night travelling from Canberra to Brisbane and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is ideal, just off the Pacific Highway so very convenient for travellers. Our host, Jan was welcoming and warm and made sure we were well looked after. Very clean and modern accommodation, the acreage had various fruit trees with beautiful mountain views. If you want a peaceful stayover then this is the place for you. I recommend staying here and look forward to coming back again with my family. (stayed Jan 2016, not 2015, the drop down doesn't have 2016 yet)
