Arcadian Cabin - Southern Highlands River Retreat

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

Your retreat is brand new, self-contained, luxurious, and is the perfect weekend or mid-week getaway in a secluded country setting. Picnic amongst the eucalypt and pine trees, or wander along the 2km stretch of the beautiful Wollondilly River. Only 1.5 hours from Sydney or Canberra, and 30 minutes to the boutique shops, wineries, historical towns, and numerous events of the Southern Highlands NSW. Our onsite massage and beauty treatments turn this property into your own private resort.

Enjoy swimming, canoeing, fishing or just relax, unwind and take in the views of our 100 acre completely solar and wind powered scenic property. We offer breakfast baskets, BBQ trays, picnic baskets, and cheese platters to accompany our local wines and bar menu. On the colder days snuggle up inside by the slow combustion fire with a good book, or have some fun with the variety of board/card games available within your cabin.

Sitting on the front deck you will see a morning and afternoon parade of native animals and hear the beautiful song of our lovely wild birds. Within our 2km stretch of the Wollondilly River there are platypus, fish, deep cool pools and shallow sandy wading areas. Maybe take an evening walk around the property to catch sight of a wombat, possum or owl, or simply sit by the outside fire-pit, toast marshmallows and soak up the vast night sky speckled by millions of stars.

Why not pamper yourself with either a rejuvenating facial or beautiful relaxation massage, or wipe away any aches and pains with a remedial massage located in our treatment room on the property.

Accommodation and facilities are completely new and consists of two bedrooms (2 king beds, or 1 king bed and 2 king single beds), spacious lounge/ dining area, fully equipped kitchen with 5 burner gas oven/stove, slow combustion fire, flat screen TV with DVD player, BBQ facilities, outdoor firepit, washing machine and tub, audio system with USB port, and games/books. Linen and towels are supplied and included in the tariff.

Arcadian Cabin - Southern Highlands River Retreat
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Amazing hidden gem - we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend away at Arcadian cabins with 2 families (including 3 children). We honestly had the BEST time here! The cabin was super clean and modern, and Mel has thought of absolutely everything a family might need for the weekend. We spent our days sitting by the open fire down by the river watching the kangaroos go past and spent our nights star gazing and playing indoor games by the fire. We will definitely be back as we had such an amazing time here, we'll also be letting all our friends and family know about this hidden gem.
