Your retreat is brand new, self-contained, luxurious, and is the perfect weekend or mid-week getaway in a secluded country setting. Picnic amongst the eucalypt and pine trees, or wander along the 2km stretch of the beautiful Wollondilly River. Only 1.5 hours from Sydney or Canberra, and 30 minutes to the boutique shops, wineries, historical towns, and numerous events of the Southern Highlands. Our onsite massage and beauty treatments turn this property into your own private resort.

The space

Enjoy swimming, canoeing, fishing or just relax, unwind and take in the views of our 100 acre 100% solar and wind powered scenic property. We offer food baskets for breakfast, BBQ, or picnics, and cheese platters to accompany our local wines and bar menu. On the colder days snuggle up inside by the slow combustion fire with a good book, or have some fun with the variety of board/card games available within your cabin.

Sitting on the front deck you will see a morning and afternoon parade of native animals and hear the beautiful song of our lovely wild birds. Within our 2km stretch of the Wollondilly River there are platypus, fish, deep cool pools and shallow sandy wading areas. Maybe take an evening walk around the property to catch sight of a wombat, possum or owl, or simply sit by the outside fire-pit, toast marshmallows and soak up the vast night sky speckled by millions of stars.

Why not pamper yourself with either a rejuvenating facial or beautiful relaxation massage, or wipe away any aches and pains with a remedial massage located in our treatment room on the property.

Accommodation and facilities are completely new and consists of two bedrooms (2 king beds, or 1 king bed and 2 king single beds), spacious lounge/ dining area, fully equipped kitchen with 5 burner gas oven/stove, slow combustion fire, flat screen TV with DVD player, BBQ facilities, outdoor fire-pit, washing machine and tub, Bluetooth audio system, and games/books. Linen and towels are supplied and included in the tariff.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Arcadian Cabins! The cabin is amazing with a beautiful bush outlook and the stars at night are unforgettable. We can not speak highly enough of Mel who was so accommodating, friendly and helpful in making our stay so enjoyable. We will definitely be back.

Melanie and George's cosy cabin ticks all the right boxes, super comfy king size bed, clean modern interior design, stainless steel professional gas burner stove, BBQ, dishwasher equipped for all your kitchen needs, pot belly to keep you warm during the cold winter nights, camp fire to stay warm under the Milky Way and perfect for astrophotography, Wollondilly river for fresh fish and yabbies, very quiet, serene and peaceful location only 1.5hrs from Sydney. We are definitely coming back very soon!! Cannot recommend this place enough. A perfect place to escape from the busy city life. Thank you Melanie & George for the amazing experience!
