Indooroopilly - Exclusive Mountain Retreat

Family Friendly in Berry
From $1300 /night

Indooroopilly is the perfect retreat for that special weekend away with family or friends.

This exclusive mountain retreat was originally built by writer and poet Barbara Blackman (whom was previously married to artist Charles Blackman) and her partner Marcel Veldhoven as a nurturing escape.

Evolved from the land itself the home is hand built and integrates a tapestry of textures such as mud bricks, paddock rocks, local timbers and a unique temple like roofline. All this makes Indooroopilly one of the most interesting and individual places in the area.

On the property there is a main house plus an additional cottage (the cottage can be added to the booking for an additional tariff). The main house consists of 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, plus 2 separate toilets, kitchen, lounge and dining. There is also a large games room/bar within the main house. The games room features a stage, bar, pool table and juke box. This provides a perfect alternative entertaining space or even a conference area. There is free WiFi in the main house (not the cottage) and 2 large smart TV’s for watching your favourites on Foxtel, Neftlix etc.

The dining room features a large wood burning combustion fire and the lounge room features a lovely stone fireplace for a more intimate setting.

Outside there are decks for enjoying a BBQ, relaxing with a book, wildlife and even a cubby house, kids swing set, and an extra large fully fenced pool featuring a spectacular view of the valley and mountain beyond.

Discover bush trails to hike, watch and listen to the lyre birds serenade you, see the resident echidnas, wallabies, kangaroos, wombats and more!

One of Berry’s finest holiday homes – Indooroopilly cultivates a retreat to soothe the soul.

The perfect place for our group for a weekend of cycling in Berry. Plenty of space for our big group. Dip in the pool afterwards. Walk to town in 3min. Everything we needed 👌

What a perfect venue! We had a fabulous family weekend at Indooroopilly, age groups ranging from 18 to 88. Everyone was so well catered for. We will absolutely rebook soon as our weekend couldn’t have been better! Thank you to the owners who have maintained this property so beautifully. A weekend we will remember always!

This was the most unique property I have stayed at. A group of 8 girls - turning 39ish stayed here for the weekend and never wanted to leave. The history, the charm, the quirkiness, the absolute beauty of the house itself and its surrounds was enchanting - it was like being part of a fairy tale.

Secluded , elevated and well appointed I looked at hundreds of properties as a venue for my 50th birthday, Indooroopilly was perfect. It was secluded, without being too far from Sydney and the view is spectacular. Thanks to those who built it, those who own it and those look after the rental of it. Everything was perfect!

This beautiful property takes your breath away With friends and family gathering for a celebration we found ourselves in the most amazing location. The property is situated atop a dreamy valley with views to the famous wedding cake mountain beyond the glamour swimming pool . We found such tranquility here. Then there is the accommodation! I have never stayed in more perfectly considered comfort. The bedrooms, bathrooms , kitchen and living areas are all equipped to make your stay luxurious yet in keeping with the location. A special treat was the separate cottage which has all its own magic. I cannot recommend Indooroopilly highly enough. You have to see it to believe it.

Indooroopilly- what a breath of fresh air. This property is more than just a place to stay, its an experience to be had. From the sweeping views to the snake enclosed fire put. The house oozes with excitement and adventure. A must see!
