Tapitallee is located South West of Berry and just over the hill South East of Kangaroo Valley both about 20 minutes away with no traffic lights. It is a beautiful area with many attractions such as wineries, ceramics, orchids, bonsai, slab timbers, Bundanon and Riversdale.
The Stables was one of the cottages in the Good Weekends 52 Weekends some time ago. The Stables has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and is located in the foothills of the Cambewarra Range. It is located 375 metres off Illaroo Road surrounded by trees and has a dam virtually at its door. There is a slow combustion wood heater for those cool winter days and nights. The kitchen has a dishwasher, cook top and a large pantry. The polished timber floors in the living rooms compliment the modern carpets in the bedrooms. The Stables is a stiletto free zone because of the genuine wooden floor. There is a small use and replace wine cellar which if you use the wine then you replace it with a similar quality or leave $10 on the kitchen bench when you leave.
The water supply comes from a tank attached to the cottage. The shower heads are not water savers there is a six minute timer attached to them so you get a decent shower. On arrival enjoy the complimentary wine, cheese and biscuits. We make a loaf of Trevs yummy bread and have flowers in the rooms. Although Tapitallee Lodges are self-catering there are enough provisions to get you through breakfast (and a bit more) and the pantry is stocked with olive oil, sauces, rice, pasta and enough food to get you started. There is also a proper coffee grinder, electric frying pan, slow cooker and a rice cooker. Outside there is a barbecue and a small outdoor setting. People who have stayed at the Stables usually come to relax and do nothing but enjoy the surrounds. The owners, Carol and Trevor, live on the property. Your stay will be private and undisturbed. Our properties are pet friendly.
A booking for a couple is for one bedroom and one bathroom only. If you want two bedrooms and/or bathroom for a couple there is an extra charge. When you make a booking for a cottage you have exclusive use of that cottage. There will be no one else booked into the remaining bedroom.
The showers do not have water saving heads so you will get plenty of water. However, the showers do have a six-minute timer on them. After all, the water comes from a tank and we all have to save water. There is a small use and replace wine cellar in Herons Rest and The Stables. You are welcome to the wine on the proviso that you replace the wine you drink with the same wine or that of equivalent quality. There is a coffee grinder, a slow cooker, a rice cooker, fry pan, and a barbecue. Enough for you to enjoy your meals in all cottages. There are 1000 thread sheets and pillowcases. Towels are supplied. The fully equipped kitchen comes with a dishwasher (in Herons rest and The Stables), a microwave oven and a fridge. There is also an outside bbq.
