The Cottage at Stoneridge
Tranquil, Secluded, Self-Contained
Do you like your country air served with country comforts?
Our timber and iron cottage has all you need for a quiet escape from the big smoke. If you like what we like, you’ll appreciate the country experience all the more when the accommodation is comfortable. At Stoneridge, you can be confident of excellent quality, cleanliness and amenities.
“Quiet, comfortable, spacious, beautifully kept & appointed. A view to remember forever.” – R & C
A World of Your Own
You can enjoy lovely views of the Balingup Brook valley and surrounding hills from all the living areas. Nestled on the valley side, secluded and self-contained, the cottage offers you a world of your own.
“Very peaceful, quiet and relaxing.” — The McMs
The two bedrooms, equipped with Queen-size double and twin beds, have natural timber furnishings and spotless linen, doonahs, electric blankets and full-length clothes hanging. There’s a fold-out futon bed in the living room for a fifth guest.
“Our short stay was perfect and the cottage everything we hoped for. Look forward to returning.” — J & C
The main living area has polished timber flooring, a cosy wood fire, comfortable furnishings, a stereo CD player and iPod dock. Reverse-cycle air conditioning helps smooth out the crisp winter mornings and warm summer afternoons.
The living area gives onto a verandah, angled to catch the winter sun and summer shade, with barbecue and outdoor setting. The verandah and main rooms all look across the valley of the Balingup Brook.
“Nice and cosy with good views. All amenities excellent from woodshed to wine glasses. We really enjoyed our stay and will come back here.” – F & DM
The living area also catches the morning sun in winter, as the sun climbs from behind one of the rock formations that give Stoneridge its name. This is a perfect time to watch the mist in the valley over a leisurely coffee or tea.
An indoor dining area comfortably seats four, while the kitchen is fully equipped with under-bench oven, cook top, microwave, generous fridge/freezer, and a full range of utensils, cutlery and crockery. The water supply is our own pure rainwater.
“Fabulous cottage! Was amazing to just relax in front of the fire watching the mist clear.” — E & J
The bathroom is separate from both laundry facilities and toilet. With a full-size bath and separate shower, and a large timber-framed mirror over the vanity, there is no need to cramp your style! You’ll find a hair dryer if you forgot yours.
An American laundry provides a trough and washing machine, plus iron and ironing-board.
Relax and Enjoy
Whether it’s the sunlight through the trees, blue wrens outside the window, the rain on the roof with a fire in the grate, or a glimpse of the kangaroos feeding at dusk, we’re sure you will have magic moments in the cottage.
“Wonderful winter stay! Just perfect. No TV, lovely views, great birdlife, private, and lovely fire. Thank you!”- J & D
