Our luxury Banyan Cottage has 215 sqm of interior and exterior space with high ceilings, louvre windows, Blackbutt timber floors, wool carpet and Blackbutt decks. There are four bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a separate living area with cosy couches and a beautiful collection of coffee table books. Each bedroom has a king bed or twin singles (in many variations), and three bedrooms have en-suites – see the floor plan. The cottage has a relaxed coastal style with local artwork by Ken Lees. The private outdoor living deck faces north onto subtropical gardens and has a small boardwalk to a unique private deck under our enormous 100-year-old banyan tree. It’s a very special place for an afternoon nap or an evening drink. The cottage is about 60m from the main lodge, via a level boardwalk, to allow for complete seclusion – see our site map. We provide premium tea and coffee, plus some special treats on arrival, and a small Bluetooth stereo (bring music on your device). Our Banyan Cottage is the only luxury four-bedroom cottage on Lord Howe Island, and is very popular with small groups, corporate retreats and families of up to eight people.
