Description

Ideal for groups, Frogspark is a comfy home away from home set in a peaceful valley only 5 km from Oberon, and a short drive from Katoomba, Bathurst and Jenolan Caves. Its passive solar design provides plenty of sunny spots to sit and great views over the dam and paddocks.

Set on eight private acres between pine forests and the historic Oberon-Tarana rail trail, Frogspark has five bedrooms- two with a queen bed, 2 with a double bed and one with a double and a single with a trundle. In addition there are seven comfortable convertible beds in living areas all with linen, 4 in a room that can convert to an 6th bedroom.

With a homey, relaxed atmosphere and beautiful grounds complete with kangaroos and dams full of waterbirds, Frogspark provides the ideal getaway where you can do as much or as little as you please.

Upstairs includes a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, separate shower, toilet and basin, a private bathroom with a luxury spa, laundry with drier and two bedrooms, both opening onto decks. A large sunny living area with a beautiful outlook includes a fourteen seater dining table and daybed and leads to a cosy sitting room with comfy lounges, books, magazines, board games, DVDs and TV.

Downstairs are three more bedrooms, a three way bathroom and expansive games room complete with pool table, darts, DVD, bar with sink and large comfy lounges.

A large deck overlooking the dam is fitted out for entertaining with a large table setting, and gas barbeque in the adjoining carport

Along the Oberon / Tarana rail trail, town is an easy 20 minute cycle away. Adult mountain bikes are provided for guest use by arrangment. With plenty of room to run around on the property, children are very welcome but care must be taken near dams.

Enjoy our complimentary teas and coffees machine and plunger provided and feel free to make use of pantry dry goods, condiments, bathing and washing supplies during your stay. Catering options are available on request including breakfast hampers, picnic baskets and special dinners.

Relax, reconnect and revive at Frogspark.

Get in touch with nature at Frogspark

Frogspark provides comfort whilst being kind to the environment. The home's passive solar design provides warmth and sunlight as well as beautiful views whilst the back to grid solar array, solar hot water system and rainwater supply further reduce its carbon footprint. Care is taken in provisioning and cleaning to avoid harsh chemicals and local products are used wherever possible.

We have been rewarded in turn with an abundance of wildlife including kangaroos, water birds and importantly at least 5 species of frogs indicating that Frogspark is indeed treading lightly

Crisp mountain air outside, cosy comfort inside

At 1100m above sea level, Frogspark enjoys daffodils and blossom in Spring, mild Summers, Colourful Autumn leaves and occasional snow in winter. Frogspark surroundings are ideal for exercise, you can wander the adjoining forests trails or cycle along our quiet road or into town along the cycleway. The grounds are ideal for you to share with your children with plenty of room to run around, and a dam to explore and discount bike hire is available for guests.

Inside, Frogspark provides warmth and comfort with underfloor heating, electric blankets, cosy lounges, a gourmet kitchen for cooking up a storm and a giant table to gather around. Books, DVDs, CDs, magazines and games as well as a pool table and darts provide entertainment whatever the weather outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect property for all ages What a wonderful property. We have just spent the most relaxing weekend at Frogspark - High Country Escape. I booked the property for my extended family to stay at for the weekend as my son had a farm stay wedding close by in Oberon. It was the ideal property for all ages. We had children as young as 4, young teens, young adults, grandparents and great grandparents in their 80's. Frogspark couldn't have been more perfect. There were plenty of games and activities for the littlies, the pool table and bikes for teenagers and young adults and 3 separate entertaining areas to gather in. The beds were super comfortable. There was a lovely welcome basket on arrival. The highlight of the weekend was watching 2 big Kangeroos having a boxing match in the back yard. (So cool). We enjoyed our stay immensely and would definitely stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful family getaway!! We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at Frogspark celebrating my 50th birthday with all the family. With an age range from 4 to 74, there was plenty to do to keep all ages happy & entertained. From early morning kangaroos, to leisurely bike rides into town, to amazing family portrait opportunities under the gigantic tree, to the croaking of frogs at night, not to mention the great hospitality by the property owners, it was an incredible weekend loved by all :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect family escape From 6 months to 80 years old , this house accommodated us all . We have been looking for six years to find the right place to stay when visiting family in town , at last we have found the right one. Spacious and comfy with great views, bikes to explore the surroundings and the town just a five minute drive . Kids of all ages played outside all day in the huge back yard .while the olds sat on the raised deck and just enjoyed . The large games room with a pool table was one of the main reasons we chose frogspark, as I was worried some may get bored . It didn't disappoint , a great feature! All in all a thoroughly enjoyable weekend away and we will be back next year . Paul and the gang

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For A Group Getaway Went with a group of 14 adults to stay at Frogspark and couldn't have been happier. Very nice and large house set on a sizeable and peaceful property not too far from the town. Sharon was very helpful and even had let us a whole collection of treats for us to enjoy upon our arrival. Thanks!
