The hideaway of your dreams nestled high up on the edge of an ancient rainforest.

Featured in the SMH Good Weekend - 52 Weekends Away for 2014

With only two cottages, this secluded retreat offers peace and privacy, helping you to escape the stresses of everyday life whilst admiring the beauty of a rainforest teaming with wildlife.

Whether its a romantic getaway or a relaxing break with friends and family, Red Dog Retreat is the place for you. It also offers you the option of bringing your dog and save on those kennel fees!

In summer, you can be on the beach in 20 minutes and then come home to the seclusion and cooler mountain breezes on Cambewarra Mountain which overlooks most of Shoalhaven. Seven Mile Beach at Shoalhaven Heads is dog friendly, so your canine friend will be happy too!

Enjoy the fantastic shops and award winning restaurants of Berry or Kangaroo Valley and then wind down at sunset on your covered veranda with a refreshing glass of something cool while you spot our resident wombats and birdlife.

In winter you can snuggle up in front of the wood burning stove. After that take time out to soak up the atmosphere in our spa baths or have a massage from a therapist that will visit the cottage, before hitting the sack to recharge the batteries and awaken to the sound of native birdsong, welcoming in the next day.

Both cottages have two bedrooms and are designed with a rustic feel to blend in with the tranquil rainforest setting. To compliment this each is furnished with an array of eclectic furniture providing all the creature comforts of home. The main bedrooms have ceiling fans and French doors opening up onto the verandah to catch the cool summer breezes. Whilst during the winter months you can enjoy the warmth of the wood burning stove in the cosy living room.

With mountains and beaches virtually at your front door there is an endless list of activities to entertain you during your stay.

All this can be yours in just over 2.5 hours drive from both Sydney or Canberra so why not book your next escape today!

Prices shown are per cottage. Each cottage sleeps a maximum of 4 people. Many people book both cottages for groups of up to 8 people; it is the perfect location to spend quality relaxing time with your friends or family. The cottages are about 50 metres apart and are on different elevations so offer complete privacy if required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful location Our stay at Red Dog Retreat was very relaxing and peaceful. A wonderful place to spend our 28th Wedding Anniversary. We were also lucky enough to see a wombat on our first night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Get away at Red Dog. Perfect,Perfect,Perfect. This place was just lovely,really clean & well maintained.It had everything that was needed.Spent hours on the first eveing,just sitting on the verandah staring at the view,saying OMG,OMG, OMG.If you are needed to get away from it all & be soothed by Mother Nature,then this is your place.Only word of advice,if you are a light sleeper take some earplugs as the lovely birds like to sing (loudly) at dawn.I can't wait to visit Red Dog again. Excellent communication with the owner & lovely fresh eggs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Property! This was our third time staying at Red Dog Cottage and it was just as relaxing and wonderful as the previous two times. The cottage is very comfortable and we love the rustic feel of the place. The fire place is a wonderful asset on a cold night! The peace and quiet of the surroundings makes such a welcome change from the busyness of city life. Just the lyrebirds and wombats to keep us company! We'll definitely be back again. Thank you!
