No internet. No mobile phone reception. No 240 v power. Rustic accommodation with a few mod cons such as hot showers and flush toilets.
Unlimited hot water is achieved by lighting the wood-fired “donkey” boiler. The 12 volt low voltage lights are powered by a water turbine and solar. The commercial oven, cooktop, outdoor barbecue and fridge are all fueled by bottled gas.
The original part of the Homestead now houses the main kitchen/living room. A fully equipped large commercial style kitchen with large gas oven and cooker, pots, pans and crockery to cater for large numbers of people. The living room has communal couches, dining tables and a large fireplace.
The sleeping arrangements consist of a selection of private bedrooms and communal bunkhouses.
A large outdoor fire pit with permanent seating is located between the house and the creek- providing a wonderful experience for non-fire ban days. You will see there is sufficient wood, split for your convenience, to heat the hot water as well as larger wood for the open fire.
Opening off the kitchen living room is a deck overlooking the lake with more tables, benches and chairs as well as a gas barbecue.
Dogs are allowed at this accommodation.
