Arriving at the Boyd Baker house was easily as good as the photographs suggested, the building is amazing as are the furnishings. We were able to keep very warm with the huge open fireplace and the supplied wood. The house was easily large enough to comfortably accommodate all ten of us, the extra living spaces made personal space achievable too. The kitchen is well stocked with most things however pots and pans were too small to cook for our number of people and knives were all blunt. The surrounding bushland is beautiful with plenty of wildlife and tracks for walking. The caretaker Silvy was extremely attentive and helped our stay run smoothly. We didn't want to leave!

Wow! This is an amazing house and was absolutely perfect for our family weekend. As parents, with our 5 adult children and their partners, we took advantage of the guest room, with our own separate access. There was more than enough room for all of us, not just to sleep but to be together when we wanted and to have separate activities at times. The period furnishings took me right back to my own childhood in the 60s and 70s. The setting is beautiful and we made the most of it with long walks and runs. We would love to return and hope to do so one day. Thanks.
