Rural Nannup Accommodation
At Jarrah Glen Cabins you’ll find peace and tranquility, birdsong, nature and plenty of Australian fauna.
It’s a place to relax and rejuvenate. Read a book, go for a walk, cook up a storm on the barbie.
We arrived in the pouring rain on a wintry day. Met by lovely Judy and Ian who were so friendly and hospitable. They offered us tea and cake on arrival which was so welcoming.
Directions to Jarrah Glen Cabins
The cabins are a 20 minute drive from Nannup, in a clearing in a forest. I felt like Hansel and Gretel as we drove along the last stretch of forest track and wondered if we should be scattering breadcrumbs in our wake to find our way out again.
Leaving Nannup travelling on the Brockman Highway, you turn right at Stacey Road.
From Stacey Road you head into beautiful natural forest and wind your way for a couple of kilometres on gravel road until you come to a clearing with an expansive view across meadows, down to the Blackwood River from which on early winter mornings the mist swirls in an atmospheric haze.
The drive in is beautiful and once you arrive you’ll find a little piece of paradise very far from the madding crowd.
This is where you’ll discover your Hansel and Gretel accommodation tucked behind some tall trees – turn left by the big tractor and you’ve found them!
What are the cabins like?
The Canadian cedar loft cabins are delightful. In winter ours was toasty warm. In summer the balcony would be a great place to hang out, enjoy a barbecue and watch the birdlife and animals.
The cabin we stayed in had a mezzanine bedroom, reached by a wide set of wooden stairs. The bedroom area is spacious and has a comfortable queen bed. It was warm and cosy in winter, beautifully equipped and just different to normal run of the mill self catering cottages. The bedroom was up a beautiful wooden staircase on a mezzanine floor.
The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed for a short self-catering stay, and the lounge and dining area was perfectly adequate for the two of us.
If you’re after no stairs and a little more space then choose Billabong cottage which has a separate bedroom with queen bed, full kitchen facilities and wood fire.
Facilities in the cabin
- Lounge area with TV and DVD and reverse aircon
- Dining table for 2 persons
- Kitchen area with microwave, small Kambrook stove, fridge and freezer.
- Bathroom with shower, hairdryer
- BBQ on the wooden deck
- All bed linen and towels supplied.
Owners, Judy and Ian are friendly and super helpful. They love their property and it shows.
When we were there Judy was busy potting up thousands of bulbs for the tulip and Flower and Garden Festival that’s held in Nannup annually during the third week of August.
There are some great festivals in Nannup each year, so do book Jarrah Glen Cabins in advance if you are thinking of staying around festival times.
If you don’t want to cater for yourself, you can (in advance) request Breakfast baskets and BBQ packs. Otherwise, shop for groceries at IGA in Nannup before you head to Jarrah Glen Cabins.
