To celebrate one of my besties 30th birthday, he kindly booked out the architectural masterpiece Treetops at Cottage Point for a BBQ, party and general laze about. A drive a short 45 mins out of the CBD to a tranquil, beautiful spot in the Kurungai National Park – hmmm didn’t take much convincing to get me there.
The house feels like an upmarket ski lodge, perched over the river rather than a ski slope. Great for entertaining, the house comes equipped with a full kitchen, outdoor entertaining area, a range of crap dvds (FAIL) and an xbox with a range of games (a big win with the kids that arrived the next day).
With four bedrooms, it sleeps 8 quite comfortably not to mention the giant comfy couches in the living space. The decor is bright and cheerful, and makes me want to paint my house yellow. The outdoor area has built in sitting and is perfect at night to welcome the nocturnal neighbours such as prince* the possum.
Note – drinking champagne in the hot tub only leads to bad things.
And the great thing is that if you run out of food or booze, you only have to wander down to the waterfront to find the Cottage Point Inn. A great modern australian restaurant, the atmosphere is wonderfully peaceful. Or perhaps that was all the wine.
Cottage Point, NSW
* this may or may not be his real name. Most likely because we were drinking too much wine and listening to Prince at the time.
