At Captain's Lookout, you will instantly feel relaxed as you take a seat on the landscaped viewing deck, perched on the edge of the mountain with large fire pit as its centrepiece. Enjoy the cinema of natural weather events where you can watch the fog majestically rolling in over the mountains, amazing lightning storms over the ocean or on a clear day, you will see the horizon stretching for miles and at night you will feel like you can pluck a star from the sky. Enjoy the covered alfresco area with BBQ in summer and the large slow combustion wood fire which pumps out the heat in winter and provides a cosy ambiance inside. This is the perfect getaway in any season.

We had a fantastic trip to Berry from Sydney this weekend staying here with our whole family. We were celebrating a significant birthday with some dinners and wine tastings booked in the heart of town, so this property was perfect in terms of location. The layout of the house was interesting and spacious which we loved. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook and make cocktails. There was a heater and fireplace indoors so we were very warm. We spent most of our time sitting around the fire pit outside though, which had a stunning view and an ideal spot for sitting with everyone, spending some quality time together. We were very excited to spot some wombats and wallabies during our stay, which made the stay even more enjoyable. Highly recommend staying here if you are after a scenic and memorable trip!
Lovely view, rustic (1970s) charm brought back childhood memories. Felt the urge to ignore my iPhone for a few days of fun with the kids.
Stunning view! Lovely to watch the changing colours of the Shoalhaven. We had a couple of visits from some wallabies eating from the apple trees, which was really special. House is comfortable with old-school charm. We thought it was a little expensive but would stay again.
Captain's Lookout boasts amazing views of the coast and a beautiful setting amidst the forest. We even saw wombats! House is comfortable, spacious and well equipped but kitchen could do with an update. Overall, location is gorgeous and we were sorry not to be able to use the fire pit (due to wet weather)
We LOVED staying at captains lookout. The space was amazing - loved all the rustic touches. The fires inside and out were perfect on a winter weekend and the view was stunning - each time you looked out, it was different as the light changed through the day and we were treated to full rainbows! Even on a very windy weekend, we were snug and warm. Would definitely recommend this place!
We loved our stay here. The house was nice and warm, we loved the view from the house and absolutely enjoyed the campfire. Would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to just relax and enjoy a mountain retreat.
We enjoyed our stay here. Our doggo enjoyed the abundance of grass and fresh air too! As many other reviews have noted, this place has lots of quirks of an older style home particularly the kitchen and one of the bathrooms. Bore water is in use here too. They provide plenty of drinking water in containers. The fireplace and fire pit is what makes this a great place for a getaway for a group of friends. On your way in, you will need to open two gates to get through.
