Overview

About the property

Ennismór

Ennismór is a stunning highlands property uniquely located beside a 20 acre private lake. It is the perfect country escape with animals, landscaped gardens, numerous paddocks and your own forest to explore. While being entirely secluded, Ennismór is still close to the villages of Berrimah (8 minutes drive), Bowral (20 minutes drive) and Mittagong (13 minutes drive).

*** Search "Ennismór" on youtube for some videos filmed on the property ***

Ennismór is an extraordinarily beautiful 120 acres with the homestead located by a picturesque 20 acre lake. Ennismór is serene and very special with the sounds of nature from a variety of bird life around the lake. Ennismór is located an enjoyable 90 minute drive from Sydney or alternatively a short 20 minute helicopter flight. Charter rates are available on request.

Take a walk across the bridge to the island for a picnic, relax on the swing seats in the gardens or take a stroll along the 700m private road.

Ennismór has a small beach on the island to relax or enjoy some summer swimming, while the provided row boats ensure plenty of aquatic fun.

There are plenty of indoor and outdoor activities for the whole family to enjoy together including billiards, a video library (Ennismór does not have television coverage), rowing, biking, fishing, soccer and nature walks. The property is home to much wildlife including kangaroos, wombats, rabbits, frogs and various birds, ducks and waterfowl.

The horse and cattle love some attention too, especially if you have some carrots and bread to treat them!

Nearby attractions include wine tasting down the road at Joadja winery, scenic helicopter flights, historic towns, village shopping, cinema and bowling.

The house

Spacious, well appointed and comfortable house furnished with beautiful french antique pieces, very cosy beds will provide for a warm country experience.

The house has climate control to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.

The house has 4 bedrooms:

- An enormous master bedroom with ensuite has a king bed as well as a 2 seater lounge with french doors opening to the verandah and stunning views of the lake.

- 2nd bedroom with queen bed, also with walk in robe, ensuite and french doors opening onto courtyard.

- 3rd bedroom has a double bed and one single bed, walk in robe and ensuite.

- 4th bedroom with three single beds is an open room to the hallway and does not provide privacy. We usually use this room for the younger children, but it is a perfectly comfortable and well appointed room for adults as well.

All rooms have plenty of hanging space and drawers, so no problem unpacking all of your belongings for those long vacations. All ensuite bathrooms have showers.

You have a fully appointed large kitchen with 2 ovens, microwave, dishwasher, full cooking and eating facilities. Dining table in kitchen that seats 10 or a rustic farm table outside that seats 8.

Separate dining room with billiard table by the fireplace.

Large lounge room with fireplace, 46" LCD TV for movies and videos (sorry but we are not able to capture TV signals!)

Dining room and lounge room looks out to lake and paddocks with french doors opening to the verandah.

Enjoy breakfast on the benches outside in the garden or relax on the verandah seats.

Amazing Ennismor!

  • 5 of 5

What a great property! Only 15 min drive from Mittagong but far enough to escape the hustle and bstle, Ennismor went above my expectations. Driving thru the entrance you are greeted by cows, horses, chickens and Kendrick Lamar, the llama. The lake is perfect for a dip or to row out on the paddle boats. The house is spacious with plenty of areas to chill, watch movies, or to entertain friends outdoors. The bedrooms are fitted with the comfiest beds and plenty of room to store things away. The snooker table was a huge bonus!I honestly can't wait to come back here for another weekend. Next time, I'd love to try out one of the many wineries that are a stone's throw away!

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families staying at the farm from 24 Dec to 31 Dec 2017. We all had good time there. The children liked the outdoor activities, such as riding the bike on the grass, rowing on the lake; the adults liked fishing and walking on the farmland. The views were so beautiful, especially at sun rise and sun set. We took so many photos and sent to our friends. The responses were positive, they all asked where was the place you stayed? The best thing we, the young and the old liked was sitting around the fire at night stargazing. It was within a easy drive to nearby wineries and local cafe and shops. The house is so spacious, relatively clean and comfortable. The huge kitchen was very convenient for two families and two bedrooms have beautiful views of the lake and the rolling farmland. We will definitely come back in the future for another stay.

In terms of improvements, we suggest installing flyscreens and curtains in some of the windows and doors. Perhaps also keep several more chooks for more fresh free-range eggs for guests to enjoy.

5 star pricing but 1 star service

  • 1 of 5

We had high expectations of the property given the photos and descriptions were absolutely stunning. We paid $1760 for 2 nights on the weekend to celebrate my mom's 70 birthday. I was hoping everything will be nicely presented. To my deepest disappointment, the house is poorly maintained.

Most of the door locks are broken. The lock at the front door is not in working order. It will take us 5 mins to open the front door. To top it, we were given a single key to share amongst 10 of us, which was extremely inconvenience.

None of the rooms has curtains. The laundry was full of dust and dirt. The ironing board is not usable by anyone's standard.

We were expecting a 5 star hotel service, I ran a holiday house on stayz myself. We provide all basic things ie tea, coffee, milk and eggs. At Ennismor, you wont even given a bar of soap in the bathrooms.

The quality of the house and facilities available should be reflective on your pricing. I do not see it's worth spending your quality time with friends and family in this house, unless major renovations and improvement on level of details made.

We do take your feedback seriously as we are always striving to deliver the best experience possible. We are offering a farm stay experience for guests in a luxury setting. We feel that as the house accommodates up to 12 people, the cost and amenity represents very good value for money. Our Facebook page has a number of positive reviews, as does Stayz, so thankfully your experience has not been shared by other guests. We have had constant bookings for the last 3 months without a single complaint. Thank you again for taking the time to post a review as we know your time is valuable.
