The EarthHouse Experience
The EarthHouse philosophy is tasteful simplicity, inspired by and sympathetic to, the natural environment. Every care has been made to ensure the comfort of guests, whilst being sensitive to the earth from which it was built. Both rooms have spectacular views from the wide verandah, across the Corndale Valley and beyond to the Nightcap ranges.
The EarthHouse began when owners Alastair and Jackie Black, moved to the area in 2005 from a sheep and cattle station in North West NSW. After many years of experience with renovating houses, they endeavored to build an ecologically sound house and cottage that included many of the best ideas from previous homes. The rammed earth approach to building was chosen because of its unique look, and its exceptional thermal qualities.

Life cannot get any better than this. Morning call by the birds, breakfast with the stunning view, afternoon tea in the courtyard and evening wine in the moonlight. Thank you for sharing this view with us! Special thanks for the homemade biscuits, fresh juices, and home-grown fruits. We had a most peaceful getaway at EarthHouse and we will certainly be back.

The location is excellent. EarthHouse is close to all surrounding villages and yet far enough away. Thanks to Jackie and Alastair who have created a piece of paradise and can share it with others. Brendan and Leesa, Brisbane (March 2010)
Great views, peaceful location, and wonderful hosts. What more can you ask for!? The open fire was fantastic. Thank you. Julie, Melbourne (June 2010)
What an amazing place in an amazing location! The EarthHouse idea is so well planned and thought-out and its construction and design are fantastic. This is a little treasure. It is simple, and yet very tasteful in its finishings and the peace and quiet just add to its charm. A very perfect escape from the madness of the city to bring you back to Earth.
