|Bush Land Executive Suite
Our newly extended and renovated room is done, dusted and delivered to you. Guests have already been enjoying the king bed and the extra space.
The pictures aren't the best, but will give you an idea of what the room looks like. Hannah from Everlasting Images will visit and take some professional photos.
Bush Land Executive Suite has a king bed (which can be made into 2 x single beds - advanced notice only), love seat, dining table and chairs. It is air conditioned and has a deck with a bush setting.
It is Mum's birthday this week and I wanted to send her something different. Liliesinatube is a brand new, and highly innovative way to send flowers direct from the grower to a special someone. Lillies in a tube is the brain wave of our friend Charles Reynolds from the award winning Floresence. We often purchase these gorgeous liliums for our common room. They look stunning and last a long time. Great job Charles!!
Next time you want to send flowers, try Lilies in a tube. They will be delivered to the door.
A Paradise for Lovers of Fortified Wines
Chateau Dorrien was our last stop after 2 days of wine tasting in the Barrossa Valley. What a stunning array of wines, meads and fortified wines. What started as 'let's just try a couple' to us tasting the whole range. Then we couldn't leave without buying a dozen mixed bottles.
We will now serve these unusual and delicious ports and meads to the guests in our new Bush Land Executive Suite. From White Fort and Chocolatino Port to Spicy, Scarlet and Quandong Mead we will surprise you. Perfect with chocolate at the end of the day.
Our first 'The HideAway Infusion' weekend
We were asked by the WA Club to donate a 'The HideAway Infusion' together with 3 nights accommodation for their May promotion. They were promoting Albany and Denmark. Jill and Brian were the lucky winners. Saturday morning Daniel Sharp our local celebrity chef arrived to pick up our guests and we headed down to the local farmers market. It was a cold blustery day but as usual the atmosphere at the markets was exciting. We bought most of the ingredients for our evening meal and Daniel then took Jill and Brian to several local producers and had lunch at Pepper and Salt Restaurant in Denmark.
During the evening Daniel delighted us with his passion for local fresh produce and creativity during an interactive cooking experience and a delicious dinner.
Baked Birds in a Nest
A gluten free diet can come with many challenges and feeling deprived especially at breakfast time is one of them. But not at HideAway Haven where we cater for all food allergies and special requests. This is a new recipe we baked this week for a guest with celiac. She made the comment this was the first time she had not felt deprived at breakfast since starting her gluten free diet. Click Here for the recipe.
September winners of a Lasagna Dinner on their next visit to HideAway Haven are Sandy and Michelle with their Pole Dancing Teddy. It took us a little while to locate Teddy.
