Early Check In and Late Check Out..

The property

Take time out to enjoy to enjoy 200 acres of natural surrounds.

For the more energetic guests, take a walk through the pine forest, listen to the frogs as you walk past the dams and up to the shack. Take in the view, and then descend to the 100 acres on the far side of the property.

On warm days the more daring may fancy a dip in the dam. If not, why not try your hand at yabbying in one of the 7 dams!

Alternatively relax on the verandahs and see if you can spot the eagles. Kangaroos may visit during the day, but at dusk hundreds hop from the state forest into the far paddocks to graze.

At night, enjoya barbecue, watch the sun set and marvel at the stars on a clear night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful house and location Our stay at Arda Cluggen was perfect. The house is well appointed and spacious, which made it easy to cater for a large multi-family gathering. The grounds are expansive and perfect for late afternoon strolls to see the wildlife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Property with everything! We have just come back from staying at Arda Cluggan. The house is so amazing and despite being cold outside we were warm and cosy all weekend. The house has everything that you possibly need. It was a lovely kitchen to cook in. The 7 children we had with us had so much fun exploring the property and adults enjoyed visiting wineries and sitting by the fire. Just brilliant!
