About the property

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

This recently lovingly restored Mine Managers Cottage now enjoys all the modern conveniences.

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,

Re Weddings ceromonies, cocktail parties and special events.

Great Little get-away

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sascha's retreat. Especially as it's pet-friendly. The kids loved the golf holes and freedom to run around. The adults loved the option of a drink by the fire pit outdoors or the fireplace inside. Had all we needed for our short trip away. Great location. Will be back for sure!

Also, the all the info and the helpful nature from the owner was beyond our expectations.

Thank you so much Stephen.

Great family holiday, close to everything in the hunter valley

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our short stay at Sascha’s Retreat. The property was beautiful, loved all the space that the boys had to ride their bikes and also for our dog to run around. We loved the fire pit, had a great night around it with my boys toasting marshmallows.

Stephen was also very accommodating.

We will definitely be back next time we vist the hunter. Thanks Stephen

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.
