Tucked away in a hidden paradise, with a creek tinkling softly nearby, this cabin is a rare find. Spacious and well appointed for a bush getaway, it's a perfect offline retreat from the wider world
20 minutes inland from idyllic Brunswick Heads, 35 minutes from the beaches of Byron Bay. In lush and beautiful rainforest surroundings, there is no phone, no mobile reception and no internet. The Black Cabin is a true retreat from the online world.
It is also an excellent writer or artist retreat, with a study and desk space.
Cabin is self-contained, but in an emergency guests would have access to the main house landline. If receiving messages is imperative, feel free to check them on the main-house wifi as you walk by.
The Black Cabin is a completely private space, though we will be at the main house and you can have a chat on your way past
Other things to note:
There is no vehicle access directly to the cabin. You must park at the main house and walk about 200m down to the Black Cabin through lush gardens. If you require help with your bags, this can be arranged.
Also, please remember this is a true bush-getaway, with only an outdoor hot water shower and an outdoor composting toilet.
The cabin is situated in quite a forested area, so it is likely you'll experience some native wildlife. Possums, echidnas, and other smaller marsupials are often sighted in the surrounding bushland. There will also be some insect life, though we do our best to keep the cabin clear
Another thing to keep in mind is that the region of Northern NSW often experiences quite a wet, sometimes stormy summer. Obviously, this is variable, but it is definitely worth checking the weather forecast before you arrive, so you can come prepared.
Be careful relying on a GPS to get here as we've had a few reports that they aren't very accurate in our area. Please look at our directions under 'Location.'
