Jon was great with information prior to our visit. The house was beautifully presented on arrival, including a glowing fire and provisions for breakfast. Bedrooms & bathrooms were spotless and warm, with quality linen. Wonderful kitchen. The house is set in the most gorgeous countryside yet only a short drive down to Canberra. Great pub and shopping within 10 minutes.

This secluded homestead has generous sized bedrooms, with beautifully made beds, warm fires, excellent features such as pool table, large dining room, kitchen with all amenities and toys and games. It suited our large family perfectly. The hosts were friendly, accommodating, helpful and genuine. We enjoyed our stay immensely and look forward to our next trip to Canberra so that we can have the opportunity to stay again. Thank you Jon.

An amazing house with fabulous hosts. Both Jon and Meg were lovely and made us feel very welcome in their home. The house was spacious and beautifully furnished. Meg even lit a fire for us on the first night. We stayed there for 3 nights for my daughters wedding and all our guests were very pleased with our accommodation. Thank you Jon and Meg for making our stay very memorable and we hope to come back in the future.

Jon User ProfileJon is a superhost.

I'm a third generation farmer originally from the flat wheat country of north west NSW now relishing the four season climate and mountain views of the south west tablelands. With my wife Meg, I run Murray Grey breeding cattle on Wattagan along with a couple of pet sheep, a retired race horse and several dogs. Wattagan Homestead is a sprawling seven bedroom house which now, with the children gone, we are opening to visitors so they can enjoy country life as much as we do.
I think I am pretty much your quintessential bush bloke - easy going and practical. I'm happy to show you around the farm if you like but if it's peace and quiet you're after I'm just as happy to disappear. We can also offer great, home cooked meals if you give us some notice.
Over the years we have formed strong friendships and contacts in the local district so we are well placed to recommend the best local attractions including the highly regarded cool climate wineries.
