We have had many overseas guests and others from NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Queensland. The most outstanding part has been how really nice our guests have been. We have enjoyed their company and shared many good times.
The Stables was one of the cottages in the Good Weekend's 52 Weekends and has received rave reviews from our guests. Wisteria Cottage, with fantastic views over the coastal plain and a great outdoors eating area is now available. Wisteria Cottage sleeps four (or more). Contact us if you are interested.
Welcome to the Stables. Rest and relax in a beautiful rural setting. The Stables offer two self-contained bedrooms, one ensuite and a bathroom, with a full kitchen and room to move.
Tapitallee Lodges warn for children that the Stables is located close by a dam. Please check the photographs.
Enjoy your own private dam and all the wild life which goes with it.
The cottage is located on the site of some old stables so with the best of imagination it is called "The Stables."
Tapitallee Lodges are self catering. There are enough provisions to get you through breakfast and some light foods in the pantry, the rest is up to you. The North Nowra shopping centre/tavern is located about 10 kilometres away.
There is a secure dog kennel, bring your own lock, next to The Stables so if you need to leave your pet for a while it will be secure.
Our rates per couple are; Two night weekend $260. Weekly, $520. Mid week, minimum two nights $115 per night. We no longertake bookings for one night as it is a waste of our guests money. Tapitallee Lodges is designed and operated for guests who want to come here and relax and you can't unwind in one night. We do not have a high or low season rate. Our rates are the same all year round.
Your own relaxing romantic tree change at a fraction of the cost
The Stables is located amongst the trees with a large grassy area and farm dam in front of the cottage. It is located 375 metres off Illaroo Road so you enjoy the birds, the bush, wombats and your own tree change.
Sit in the sun and relax. From here you look out over the dam. You can see the bird life, listen to the frogs and see if you can spot the resident tortoise and the occasional echindna. In the evening you can watch the wombats and as the sun goes down you will be amazed by the chorus of the water life in the dam.
In winter light the slow combustion wood heater, snuggle into the lounge and enjoy. You don't even have to cut the firewood.
The showers do not have water saving heads so you will get plenty of water. However, the showers do have a six minute timer on them. After all, the water comes from a tank.
Enjoy the comlimentary homemade bread, wine and cheese on arrival. Try the new coffee machine.
The kitchen comes fully equipped including a pantry with enough supplies to get you through breakfast and a bit more.
There is a small "use and replace" wine cellar in the kitchen. You are welcome to the wine on the proviso that you replace the wine you drink with that of an equivalent quality.
There is a coffee making machine (coffee beans are supplied), a slow cooker, a rice cooker and enough for you to enjoy your meals.
We have a range of Earl Grey teas and coffee beans.
There are good quality sheets and pillow cases supplied. The fully equipped kitchen comes with a dishwasher, microwave oven and a fridge. There is also a small bbq. Water comes from a rainwater tank so there are no nasty chemicals
Tapitallee is located southwest of Berry and just over the hill southeast of Kangaroo Valley. It is a beautiful area with many attractions such a wineries, ceramics, orchids, bonsai, slab timbers, Bundanon and Riversdale.
Our main attraction is people come to the Stables to relax. In many cases they they just sit in the sun, read, sleep, go for walks, look for the bird life although there a many close by attractions.
