A beautiful cabin, in an amazing location. Very romantic. Wonderful position to explore Nature at its best. Well self contained, kitchen well equipped. We cooked a beautiful pizza and berry crumble in the combustion oven. But this is a must for anyone wanting to defrag from society and technology, & rekindle their love for nature. Doma Cafe in Federal is well recommended. Look forward to a return visit.


This place is everything you could want for a weekend getaway. Beautiful and peaceful views matched with kind and thoughtful hospitality from Sara & Fraser. Can't wait to come back!


Highly recommend!! We loved our stay. My wife, fur baby & I stayed 3 nights at Nightcap Ridge & didn't leave the property once. We enjoyed exploring the bush tracks, the outside/indoor fire, relaxing in the bathtub at the end of the day, Fraser's chicken stew (a must try) & generally just relaxing with no phone or internet reception. The place is pet friendly & our boy Shadow (German Shepherd) loved his stay & shenanigans with Monty their dog. There is no enclosed yard, so best suited for well trained or chilled out dogs as there is plenty of wildlife & places to explore for them if they wonder. Thank you again Fraser, Sara & Monty & we look forward to returning again to your lovely property.


Goodbye Reality, Hello Happiness! This place is literally the bees knees! Such an amazing slice of heaven relaxed to the max and zenned out of our brains! Hubby and I had the most wonderful time at the property the owners are awesome and super accommodating! Their mascot monty the dog was wicked for cuddles and pats ☺️The cottage is just beautifully eclectic and chill! The perfect place to get rid of reality! Cannot wait to go back!!!!


If you like being off the grid and feeling at one with nature then a stay at Nightcap Ridge is a must. It has taken a while to write this review because words just don't seem to do justice to the unique beauty of this cottage set in the most stunning and peaceful grounds. We remain in awe of the place almost two weeks later and everyone we show our photos to struggles to believe that such a place exists. We spent three wonderful days there and all our worldly cares disappeared as soon as we set foot on the property. The cottage oozes character and charm and is superbly equipped with quality comfortable furniture and a wood burning stove that keeps the place so cosy. The bathroom is stunning with the most picturesque outlook you could imagine and is just a delight to relax in a hot bath after a day of either walking the many trails on or off the property of which Minyon Falls is a highlight. The experience of enjoying Fraser's exquisite chicken stew by our own campfire under the stars was another highlight of our stay and is simply a must. This is a truly a heaven on earth experience and Fraser, Sara & Gwen are amazing hosts. We can't wait to come back!


Beautiful & relaxing stay, with everything you need
We absolutely loved our stay at Nightcap. From the fire pit, to gorgeous bath experience to the fun interactions with Monty! This little cottage has everything you need to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Francis and Sara are lovely hosts!


We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Nightcap! The cabin and surrounds are beautiful and enchanting - a perfect getaway in a picturesque location. Fraser, Sara and Gwenda are excellent hosts; very accommodating and made us feel at home. The cabin is well-equipped and the fire kept us toasty warm during the chilly nights. Watching the sunset from the gorgeous bath was a definite highlight, and we can't wait to come back!

Cheers Night Cap
Sara and Gwenda (and Monty!) made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived at Nightcap Ridge. The cottage was clean, tidy, and well prepared for us. The combustion oven kept us warm throughout the night and also gave the cottage a beautiful homely feel. The bathroom was spectacular, overlooking the property but at the same time offering complete privacy. The claw-foot bath and gas heater was perfect for the winter nights! Minyon Falls (only a 5 min drive) was also beautiful and well worth the walk to the bottom (take the 4.5km track option from the lookout). The property itself is lovely. A mix well kept open lawns and natural lush rainforest. A creek flows within the property and there are a number of nice ponds/dams, along with some tracks to wonder about. We loved our stay at Nightcap and hope to go back again soon.

Wish we could have stayed longer! The location is perfect; Whian Whian falls are just down the road and there are many scenic drives in the area (brochures provided). Great place to take our dog with plenty of interesting tracks to explore on the property. The place has a really nice atmosphere, with the bath overlooking the well-maintained grounds and rainforest below. Everything is clean and well-equipped. Would highly recommend staying here! Thank you Fraser and Sara


You must stay here! Never have we come across hosts as welcoming and accommodating as Fraser and Sara. We are so glad to have spent our 2 year wedding anniversary at Nightcap, you guys made it all so special- from the spectacular surprise picnic Fraser and Sara organised to surprise the wife, the delicious French inspired dinner Fraser cooked over the fire, to the deluxe accommodation and surrounding rainforest, we just can’t rate it highly enough. The cabin was incredibly well resourced right down to the luxury soaps and all the breakfast goodies. We never wanted to leave! Right from booking it was such a relaxing experience. Fraser provided ample communication and instruction making arrival and the remainder of our stay a breeze. Upon arrival Fraser gave us a great run through of the cabin and all things Nightcap. All throughout our stay the hosts were very accessible should we have needed anything, we loved getting to know them and hear their story and plans. Cannot wait to return and enjoy it all over again.


NightCap was the perfect place to bring my wife and dog for a weekend of relaxation. Our host Fraser was extremely kind and responsive. We spent our days exploring the property through the many bush trails and creeks followed by a picnic at the lake. The Cabin is beautiful and cosy. Spending our nights by the fire was a perfect way to finish off the day. I would highly recommend this place.


Super relaxing stay and very friendly and helpful hosts. Definately recommend staying for at least a couple of days to really unwind and listen to the birds.


Such a beautiful place! From the crystal clear starry sky the first night to rain on the tin roof the next. Everything you could ever require, tucked away in a little cottage with a forest back yard. Make sure you explore down to the stream and take a sip of the fresh clean water and go explore the many tracks in the forest. This place is magical, I felt like I was missing it before I had even left. Can't wait to come back and see it in the winter!


This is a charming place to stay in a beautiful space in the hinterland. Perfect to get away from it all. Can't recommend highly enough. Hosts were lovely.


We stayed for 4 fantastic nights here. It's a very special place and a great location for exploring the area. We enjoyed waking up to the sounds of the rainforest every morning and the stargazing at night! Communication from Fraser was excellent and accommodating. Thanks!


We had a wonderful anniversary stay at Nightcap Ridge. We all enjoyed exploring your beautiful property including our 2 dogs. Sara was a wonderful host & Monty loved coming to visit to say hi. The bathroom with its free standing bath with views was even used even though that weekend there was a heatwave & so hot. Thank you again


Relaxing place in the hinterland. Perfect for dogs. Plenty of space to run around and play with Monty the dog. Bathroom has a great view, every little detail has been thought of. Thanks for the quick break before Christmas!


Thank you Nightcap - Relaxing
Beautiful Property, Just what you need to relax...
My partner and I had the most wonderful stay at Nightcap Ridge. Fraser, Sara and Gwen were great hosts, from the start they were very helpful with our booking and when we arrived Fraser was there to greet us and show us around the property. Where to start with the property, it is beautiful! You really are in the middle of nowhere which was exactly what we were after. The property itself has its own bush walking trails, pristine Lilly pond and dam which you can swim in. Because the property is within Nightcap National Park there is plenty of other bush trails to cover as well as Minyon Falls. A short drive away is Whain Whain Falls where we had a swim. The cottage we stayed in is self contained with great facilities. We were able to cook our own meals and for breakfast we were treated to farm fresh eggs! There is a little fire pit which we sat around and had wine, I recommend you try their curry it is really tasty and cooked to perfection over the camp fire. Because we had such a great time we will be back again!!


Sara (Fraser's wife) made us feel very comfortable. Everything was easy, Sara left us to ourselves but was very helpful when we needed it (we had a flat tyre but she helped us sort it out with no dramas). Just delightful hosts ... navigation & pre-arrival was spot on, stay was fabulous.


Absolutely wonderful place! One of the best Airbnb properties I have ever stayed in. My only regret is not being able to staying longer!


Beautiful accommodation and surrounds.


My stay here was perfect. Such beauty and peace. The location is absolutely stunning and brimming with wildlife. The cabin is close to the main house but with a porch that looks out across the property you feel like you're there all alone. Fraser was great, really friendly and so helpful.


Nature's beauty at its best! Nightcap Ridge is amazing! Can't wait to see you again!
