GUEST REVIEWS

Lovely place with everything you could need. Warm and comfortable. It was so tranquil looking over the dam, and our kids had a great time looking after the chickens and using the binoculars to check out the birds. We'd love to stay again in the future.

HISTORY

The oldest part of the cottage was built by Walter Larcombes some 100 years ago. Walter's grandson still lives on the property next door.

 

In the early 70's it was bought by an Irishman named Sam Truesdale, who extended the building and started enclosing the timber structure with stone from the property. Sam "built the place with a chain saw". He harvested timber from the bush and laid it as flooring. Beams were made from recycled power poles. Sam was a bit of a hoarder and a great recycler. He also enlarged the dam out the front of the house.

 

The current owners started extensive renovation of the cottage in 2011. Many original features were retained, like the Sam's toilet roll holder, made of a wattle branch and some wire.

Their favourite addition to the house is the large picture windows in the living room.
