Step back in time and experience the simple, but comfortable accommodation once provided to forestry workers and their family's. With some alterations and fitted with modern conveniences, we are certain you will enjoy this unique style of accommodation. Of course, if you prefer luxurious accommodation in a busy area, then this is not for you. Children will love the open spaces, our pet animals and safe areas to ride their bikes. Lewana is a 100 acre property, close to the Blackwood River on the Balingup - Nannup Road, which is considered to be one of the most scenic drives in the south west. It's around 1 hr to Margaret River, Bunbury and Busselton. We are surrounded by pine plantations and natural forest. Our nearest neighbor is 3km away, making Lewana an ideal place for family gatherings, or any type of party. We have a large open front shed with bbq's, lighting, tables and chairs. No noise restrictions if you book all cottages. We have over 50 variety's of trees. One guest summed up the scenery with, "everywhere you look, is a picture" All photos shown taken during winter and spring.
Mark & Jayne took ownership of Lewana Cottages in April 2017. The history of the site is amazing. In 1954 the property was a dairy farm, then around 1959, the then Forests Dept. purchased most of the property. The then owners retained a small section of the property and established a small shop, tea rooms, fuel depot and a camping ground. The Forests dept. transported most of the house that are here today, from Willow Springs, located south of the Brockmen Hwy (the Nannup- Bridgetown Road) Later, the shop closed and the Forests Dept. purchased this section of the property. In the early 1970's, the forestry workers where transferred to other forestry settlements and the cottages where leased to various groups to be used as holiday accommodation. In 2001 Ben & Melody Slyns purchased the property and upgraded the cottages.
In the early years, there were dairy farmers all along the Balingup Nannup road. Most farmers were struggling and supplemented their income by trapping and selling rabbits which were in abundance. In the late 1950's, the government wanted the establish pine plantations in the fertile Blackwood Valley and approached the farmers to purchase their farms, which most agreed to. Pine plantations are now the biggest industry in the area.
