100 Acre Farm- Complete Privacy :Heart of Vineyards and Concerts

The character rich home is a perfect escape for family and friends, wedding and reunions. Its also pet friendly.

It has a private 6 hole range golf course, damns for yabbies and perch- no to mention the majestic Clydesdale horses that will pop their head over the fence to say hello.

The pool and entertainment area are perfect for a sunset drink which your enjoy the Un-interrupted views of the Broken Back Range.

Set just 2 kms away from the Vintage Golf Course & Bimbadgen Winery on Macdonalds Road and a mere 6 minute drive to Hope Estate- the heart of the Concerts & Award winning restuarants in the Hunter Valley.

What our Guests say:-" What a beautiful home, thank you fro sharing it with us. A unique property with so many things to do, the natural Billabong, is something special "

Concerts - Transportation- Getting to and From Sascha's Retreat- when large concerts are on!

If you speak directly with Rover Coaches they will do a pick up and drop off door to door. Unfortunately they only run on the major concerts- but it is well with giving them a call, well before the concert to lock in your seats.

The majority of concerts are held at Bimbadgen Estate ( 20 min walk away) or a 4-5 minute : Hope Estate which is a 10 min drive and Roche Estate- which is also a 10 minute drive.

The coast of the coach fares is approx $ 20 per person - when I last checked,

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

This house accommodated all 8 of us very comfortably. The Day Bed on the veranda was used the most. It is a great Property. The men loved hitting the golf balls on the 6 hole golf course. The pool was great and it was such lovely weather for a swim.

The house had absolutely everything you could think of down to a IPAD loaded with a variety of assortment of music.

Fantastic big showers x 2 and 2 toilets was a big plus for us.

We would thoroughly recommend Sascha's Retreat for any occasion.

The owner of the property is very accommodating for your needs and super easy to talk to and responds to texts within minutes usually.

The property is so close to everything.

It was only 10 minutes to our Wedding that our Family were attending and there are Maxi Buses and Uber Taxi's that will pick you up from the House.

There is so much to do in the Hunter Valley including the Wineries and Cheese and Chocolate Factories.

Great weekend retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great weekend away here at the retreat, the place is definitely value for money. It was very close to all the wineries we wanted to go to and it was awesome coming back to relax at the house. The place is nice and secluded, so you can enjoy the backyard at the pool or fireplace. The hosts were also so helpful and friendly, highly recommended!

Best weekend I've had in a very long time. Plenty of wood for the fire. Heaps of space. Couldn't think of a better place to stay.

A really big thank you for the late check-out.

Already booked to stay again in November. Cant wait!!!

Good short break.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights (only 2 full days) & didn't leave the property. It was too cool for swimming but pool area was very nice. Our dogs LOVED the space. All they did was run and play and were completely safe (our small dog could fit under fence wires and gates but didn't venture off the actual property). House was comfy and quirky. Beds comfy too. Bathroom with big windows was great. Golf course was hard to find but fun to hit balls around. Lots of mown grass for games. A few more flyscreens would help keep the mozzies away at night though.

A lovely spot.
