Beautiful large comfortable house for the family

  • 5 of 5

We had a large family gathering and enjoyed this comfortable large house with huge bedrooms and lots of beds;open fire in the lounge room; tennis courts where we played under the watchful gaze of the cows; access to the snow about an hour and a half away. A walk up nearby Sugar Pine Hill was a highlight for everyone. The children enjoyed plenty of room to happily play inside even on the wet days. Nice comfortable beds, but we would rather have like electric blankets.

We could have done with precise directions for finding the house as all of us ended up in Batlow and had to drive back up the hill, but that isn't along way. Fresh local eggs were a treat. This was the heart of winter and we would all hope to sometime see the garden and surrounding orchards in the spring time.

Wybaleena was a fantastic residence

  • 5 of 5

Wybaleena was a lovely inviting residence whom the owners obviously take a lot of pride in maintaining. There was plenty of room for 7 adults and 7 kids and the open fires were lovely during the cold evenings. The kids loved running around the gardens and picking apples.

Great Country Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This place is a fantastic family getaway. We stayed with another family and all the kids enjoyed riding their bikes, visiting the cows and picking apples from the orchard.

The house was warm and comfortable.
