Duncraig House is an elegant weatherboard country home, perfect for family getaways with room and something for everyone, including well-behaved pets. It's not often a house is so well set up for families with children! There are bunk beds, bean bags, X-box, PlayStation3, a games retreat and separate kids loft/tv retreat, not to mention a large fenced garden and a playground for the kids. For the grown-ups, there is an outdoor spa with overhead heating on the deck, a magnificent kitchen in which to cook and entertain, an essential Nespresso machine, a study nook and a relaxing lounge with open fireplace. All ages can come together to toast marshmallows over the fire-pit under the quiet, star-filled, country night skies.
The polished floorboards, sandstone fireplace, raked ceilings, French doors, expansive entertaining decks, stone benchtops in the kitchen, a Belling oven and heated travertine bathroom floors are all examples of the style and quality of this property. With half an acre of manicured gardens, a raised kitchen garden and a semi-rural outlook at the edge of town, this is the perfect place to bring families together in style.
The flexible bed configuration is ideal for 3-4 families. Each of the upstairs, downstairs and studio areas have a king or queen bed plus additional bedding ideal for children. Each area also has its own bathroom; 3 in all, including a large freestanding bath downstairs.
There is plenty to do in the surrounding areas. It is a short 1.7 km/20 minute walk or drive into the village for the deli, bakery, butcher, cafe and restaurants, bike shop, cute gift shops and railway station. The Glow Worm Glen and Morton National Park are popular with bushwalkers and there are many cultural experiences to be had - the Community Centre holds regular functions ranging from tango to movies, monthly piano mornings and farmers' markets. Solar Springs, with amazing facilities, is a great spa escape and accepts day-visitors. Near the RSL are playing fields and a seasonal (Oct- April) outdoor swimming pool.
Duncraig House is also the ideal accommodation to explore the local and award-winning wineries, many of the local cycle races, car rallies and collectors gatherings, not to mention Brigadoon and Highland Flings, when Bundanoon, the seat of ex-patriot Scots becomes the crowning glory of the Highlands.
Bowral, Berrima and other notable Highland villages are all within a 20-minute radius of the lively character-filled village that is Bundanoon.

We stayed at Duncraig House for three nights with a few different small families. There is plenty of room and the separate living quarters attached to the garage was excellent as it gave some space at night for those with younger kids. We planned to do some exploring but ended up remaining at the property the entire time. There is ample room outside and plenty of fun things for the children. The house had a lovely country feel and it was great to sit around the fire at night. We all had a very relaxing stay and would recommend to anyone wanting to kick back in the countryside for a getaway.
Lovely house, good amenities and enjoyed the Spa.
A nice house with plenty of space both indoors and outdoors! The kitchen was well equipped and hot tub is a nice touch.
This is a very comfortable and warm house with all facilities. I spent a very pleasant weekend. The landlord is very professional and communicates smoothly.
A lovely house in a beautiful setting. Plenty of space, clean and convenient. Some nice touches like kids toys, towels for the spa and kitchen basic. Would stay here again.
Very nice house. Clean and good space. Thoughtful outdoor areas. Fully equipped kitchen with everything we needed. Didn’t expect the neighbours are very close from looking at the photos though
Excellent house for a group get together. Conveniently connected to Bundanoon city centre and shops. Loved the open living space and outdoor dining, firepit and play area for adults and children. Only minor was the jacuzzi with no hot water but host comm was very satisfactory. Will definitely come back
Our family had a beautiful time at Duncraig House. We had beautiful weather for an outdoor lunch and dinner and when the weather turned cold the hot tub was awesome then straight to the fire place. The house was gorgeous and the room so so homely and comfortable. Thank you for a great stay
Fantastic place for family get aways or friend catch ups. We had a great weekend in such a lovely and comfortable home. We would definitely come back and stay at Duncraig. Thanks
Amazing place with a great outlook! Was perfect for our group of 14 adults. Only minor issue was cleanliness of spa (water was yellow)
Duncraig House is absolutely beautiful! We had a lovely weekend away. The decor is beautiful. There is plenty of space and a lovely garden. It is a stunning property and I could not recommend it highly enough. I will definitely be back very soon!
Great place for us to base our stay. The house was perfect for 8 adults and 6 children
“We absolutely loved the place. We really enjoyed having a spa here and the fireplace. Everything we needed, and more was available here. We will definitely be back!”
