Inspiring Forest Retreat in the Heart of the South-West
Relax and unwind in 10 acres of peaceful southern forest bushland backing on to state forest. Sit back on the huge wrap around verandah and be inspired by the tranquillity of native forest, birds and wildlife. In winter, wake to the trickling of the winter stream that flows through the property.
Forest Redtail Retreat is idyllically situated 10 minutes’ drive south of Nannup. Stylishly furnished interiors with polished jarrah floors, cosy wood fire, expansive verandah with forest and water views, and all the comforts of home.
The Retreat comprises three large bedrooms – Master retreat with queen bed and French doors leading to a wide verandah, plus two other large bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one a double bed. Spacious, newly appointed gourmet kitchen and open plan living/dining all with inspiring open views to the native forest.
Reconnect with nature through bush walks, bird watching, exploring property tracks and adjacent state forest; or simply sit back with a glass of wine or book on the verandah.
