Overview

About the property

Settler's Rest is a cozy 2 bedroom cottage set in a peaceful rural location a few kilometers from town, perfect for a couple or 2 couples to have some time away from city life. Wood fire for cold winter nights, where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine or 2 from the local region. The cottage is set on a 250 acre property with amazing walking tracks or for you to take your dog on a run, yes Settler’s Rest is pet friendly.

Denmark marks the spot where forests of towering trees give way to white sandy beaches. Take a drive or walk among ancient karri tree giants, relax by the emerald waters of William Bay, feast on local wine and gourmet produce, or fish one of the largest inlets on the south coast.

You can escape to this romantic old timber milling town within a day, taking the 4 hour drive south from Perth or the 45 minute drive west from Albany.

Guided wine and forest tours are available, or you can hit the scenic Scotsdale Tourist Drive. Along the way, get close to nature in the Harewood Forest, stop for a tasting at a cellar door, berry and herb farm, cheese or chocolate and toffee factory, and perhaps allow a little time to indulge the senses at the Sandalwood Factory.

At the coast, the picturesque Wilson Inlet beckons you to swim, fish, sail, water ski, surf or windsurf. The gentler waters of the river invite you to hire a canoe. While Lights Beach lures you with the promise of hooking herring, salmon and bream.

Venture east and you'll find yourself in the stunning seascapes of William Bay National Park. Here, the calm, clear shallows of Greens Pool tempt you to bathe, snorkel, dive and take a walk to the curious Elephant Rocks. Look out for migrating whales along the coast from July to October. Or take the short drive to The Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk, taking you 40 metres above the forest floor for a bird's eye view of Western Australia's 400 year old tingle tree giants.

Back in town, there are reminders of Denmark's humble beginnings at the historic fire station, school, hotel and the Old Butter Factory.

cosy and comfortable, adequately equiped

  • 3 of 5

We didn't expect the toilet to be out the main door. There was no iron or coffee machine as stated in the description. It also took me a while to work out the hot water system and where the wood was. This was only after I had purchased some. It would have been nice to have some information inside the cottage.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay.

Peace and quiet

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay. The cottage is comfortable and cozey. We enjoyed breakfast on the veranda, coffee under the pine trees and movies in front of the pot belly.We cooked every night in well appointed kitchen and slept in comfy beds. Hot water was limited, so we needed a bit of planning to both be able to have a quick shower. We recommend this cottage and next time e'll bring our dogs too. Thank you so much.
