Located two hours west of Canberra in the serene Australian countryside, an A-frame rental offers a unique glamping experience.
One of the main highlights at JR’s Hut, an off-the-grid glamping destination in Southeast Australia, is without a doubt the views. The panoramic vistas not only capture the magnificent Murrumbidgee River flats and Kimo valley, but also the rolling green hills and beyond. But that’s not all there is to love about this hilltop getaway.
Designed by Anthony Hunt Design and Luke Stanley Architects, JR’s Hut is the newest addition to Kimo Estate, a remarkable 7,000-acre property with a rich history dating back to the 1830s. Now a second-generation working sheep and cattle farm, Kimo also welcomes guests seeking an elegant wedding ceremony venue or luxurious rural retreat.
To bring visitors and newlyweds closer to the landscape, Kimo Estate owners David and Emelia Ferguson first approached Anthony Hunt and Luke Stanley for on-farm accommodation that was both contemporary and eco-friendly.
“It was to provide comfortable accommodation for two people, with an emphasis on disconnecting from the digital world and reconnecting with the surrounding landscape,” says the architects of the 301-square-foot eco retreat.
