It has all the luxuries of a posh hotel, plus proper coffee in the kitchen, a sunny courtyard that catches the morning sun, a small but fully formed kitchen, horse stables and yards outside the door.

The space
Located in the Hawkesbury valley near Windsor it is just an hour from central Sydney out of peak.

You have a queen bed, lounge and dining, kitchen and bathroom on the ground level and two single beds located in the loft.

The courtyard has seating for outdoor eating, a BBQ, a chiminea (with wood provided) for those cool evenings and fairy lights for the right mood

Hotel quality linen and towels, pod coffee, wifi, TV with Chromecast, USB power outlets and a selection of cables for your devices are all provided.


On the property is a full-size dressage arena and jumping paddock, plus an on-site level 2 riding instructor if you plan to make this a working holiday.

Guest access
What to see...
Ebenezer is one of the 5 Macquarie Towns settled in the early 1800's, so there are numerous historical sites.

At the bottom of the road is Swallow Rock Reserve that accesses a walking trail along the river, a few kms and you'll get to Ebenezer Church.
Ebenezer Church is the oldest in the country.

A short drive away isTizzana Winery, the winery was established by the growers that first settled Mudgee.

Windsor is ten minutes away, and dripping in history. Make sure you get to the museum to appreciate the challenges a Hawkesbury flood can create.

The river is accessible from many locations, you can hire a scaled-down replica tugboat at the Windsor Wharf from Bruce.

A drive to Upper Colo is a wow, lovely sand, slow flowing water, just sit in the shallows in the shade of the overhanging willows.

Energetic activities...
For those so inclined, the Hawkesbury is a boating heaven, numerous launching sites, and calm waters. Yes, we can accommodate boat trailers.

Kayaks can be rented at Macquarie Park. From Windsor, cross the bridge and turn left, a great spot to cool off on a hot day.

Where to eat...
Make sure you check out the celebrity dinner opportunities at the Cooks Co-op run by Martin Boetz, who is providing a world-class paddock to plate restaurant just 5 minutes down the road. They do a winter series of Sunday lunches and local nights serving up some fantastic curries.

Thompson Square in Windsor hosts the Macquarie Arms Hotel (another oldest) and numerous eateries including some great fish and chips..

If your thinking cooking breakfast is too hard, try Tractor 828, it's the local equivalent of your trendy city cafe, 4.5 on Trip Advisor.

If your planning to have a bbq here, make sure you stop to see Barry at Wilberforce Butchery, great steaks, and the sweetest cooked river prawns. Yep, and the bottle shop is next door.

Bringing a horse ...
If you want to bring a horse or dog you need to talk to Sally when booking.

I work hard to create an exciting environment in which to work, rest and play. I hope that Sally and I can make all those things a bit better for our guests.
During your stay
Your hosts, Sally and David, have been on the property for 20 odd years and in the area for 30. Not quite locals yet, as there are numerous descendents of First Fleeters in the area.

Sally is an Equestrian Federation Level 2 Instructor, who has spent her life around horses. Sally operates the equestrian activities, so if you are interested in riding trails or lessons get in contact before your arrival. There are a number of school horses, but Sally will need to match your skill level to the available horses. We have performance horses that are not suitable for beginners or novices.

Remeber, you are welcome to bring your own horse.

David works for the man, but enjoys gardening and maintaining the property on the weekend.

We will generally be able to meet you on arrival and will do our best to ensure you enjoy your stay.
