The Rye House is a luxury self-contained farm house set on the historic property "Melross" in Kangaroo Valley. Situated on 200 acres, Melross is widely considered one of Kangaroo Valley's most beautiful properties. Breathtaking views from the house look out across the hills into the spectacular cliff escarpment that surrounds the entire property.
There are so many ways to enjoy your break at The Rye House on Melross - take long walks around the property and down to the river, wander across the lawn to collect some freshly-laid eggs from the chickens, lounge by the swimming pool and sip on a latte from the Aldi Expressi coffee machine, create a feast on the barbeque and enjoy your meal with a glass of local wine, cuddle up by the fireplace, or just sit back and watch the animals graze and soak up the stunning views from the veranda. Come evening time, there's nothing better than a home-cooked dinner enjoyed outside on the deck gazing at the perfect valley stars.
However they choose to spend their time all our guests say the same thing: we never want to leave!
