This tree house-style log cabin rental is located near Barrington Tops National Park, New South Wales, and can accommodate eight guests for a peaceful getaway to a secluded natural setting.

It is set on a 250-acre property bursting with the lush foliage of the temperate rainforest.

This NSW accommodation is well appointed with all the appliances and technology guests will need to make their stay easy and comfortable. During the colder weather, a slow combustion wood heater keeps guests' tree house cabin snug overnight—and nice and warm to return to. The exterior of the rental is robust and rustic, while the interior is a mix of quaint and contemporary.

Guests at this Barrington Tops accommodation will find the two bedrooms upstairs. Each boasts a comfortable queen-size bed and a double sofa bed. Crisp cotton sheets, fluffed pillows, snuggly warm doonas, and thick blankets are all supplied to ensure guests' stay is as hassle-free as possible. Along with the bedrooms, guests will find the second lounge room with a large two-seater sofa with a chaise lounge, a small coffee table, and a wall-mounted, 60-inch SmarTV with a Blu-ray player.

In the bathroom, guests will find a shower, a vanity with a large mirror, a separate toilet, and a great view of the forest. Thick, soft towels, face washers, a hand towel, and a foot mat are all supplied.

In the lounge room, guests can relax on the comfortable lounge, set their cup of tea on the coffee table, and catch a sighting or two of the native wildlife through any of the large windows covering the cabin. Alternatively, they can turn on the movie they've been waiting to watch on the wall-mounted SmarTV with a DVD player. There is also a small Bluetooth speaker in the TV cabinet for guests to make use of.

The cabin's kitchen is built with functionality in mind. It boasts an electric oven, a gas stove, an overhead range, a fridge, a dishwasher, a microwave, a Nespresso coffee machine, all necessary cookware, and tableware.

Just outside the kitchen, guests have a gas barbecue and outdoor setting to enjoy. The outdoor fire pit is always popular, and guests can bring marshmallows for s'mores.

This property is located in Main Creek, New South Wales, where it is situated at the foot of the Barrington Tops on a lush, 250-acre property full of temperate native rainforest overlooking the fern gullies of Carawirry Creek.

The property is bordered by Chichester State Forest and the Black Bulga State Conservation Area, and it is less than half an hour from the southeastern corner of Barrington Tops National Park, where guests will find the Jerusalem Creek Track.

The conservation area provides habitats for an abundance of wildlife living amid Australian red cedar, native tamarins, rose maple, and wet sclerophyll eucalyptus forests. A variety of marsupials call the conservation area home, including eastern grey kangaroos, greater gliders, koalas, and parma wallabies. Other local fauna includes tiger quolls, masked owls, glossy black cockatoos, rufous bettongs, potaroos, barred frogs, Parma wallabies, and superb lyrebirds.

While the site feels remote and provides guests with plenty of seclusion in an immersive natural setting, it is also only a 20-minute drive from the charming town of Dungog, where guests will find shops, cafes, pubs, a microbrewery, antique stores, an art gallery, and supermarket, along with the James Theatre, which is the oldest continuously running movie theater in Australia. The site is about one hour from Newcastle Airport.
