Stay | Heartwood Cabin

Welcome to this week’s stay featured in the Hinterlands of beautiful Burringbar, in the Northern Rivers. Heartwood Cabin is nestled amongst a native forest of green and overlooks the magnificent Mount Wollumbin, with ocean views to the East,  is surrounded by the beauty of the Tweed Valley.

Heartwood Cabin was built as a retreat from the every day, with simplicity and luxury in mind. Architecturally designed, this off the grid eco cabin weaves together modern lines and a beautiful rustic charm. Sweeping glass doors that welcome the sounds of the forest inside and an inviting outdoor bathing area for happy hour and sunset watching. Being a modern version of a tree house, this unique cabin invites you to slow down, reset and recharge.

We hope you enjoy this Stay as much as we did!

What inspired you to create Heartwood Cabin?

This land, and the aspect that Heartwood stands on called for this little love nest. It was initially built as a retreat from city life, with soothing colours, immersion in nature and only necessities around. Keeping the space minimal was important to the relaxing feeling of the cabin.


In 3 words describe the experience of staying at Heartwood Cabin…

Soothing, spacious, nurturing.


There is such a unique style to the Cabin, can you tell us about the design process?

Heartwood is obviously most influenced by the nature that holds it. Natural materials, colours and bringing as much of the outdoors in as we possibly could. Core values of the build were simplicity, beauty, sustainability, luxury and lines. It’s not that we wanted to camouflage the building, but for it to be part of its surrounds. And, as an off-grid cabin, it had to be completely practical. Kristin Burrowes was the architect and Berecon was the builder.


What attracted you to choose Pampa pieces for Heartwood Cabin?

The gorgeous natural fibres and colours of Pampa fit perfectly with our colours and texture in the cabin. The round, soft pillows bring a cosiness that our modern, straight lined cabin really needs.


Paint us a picture of what your favourite spot amongst the Cabin is…

I think every guest that has ever been to Heartwood will tell you their favourite part of the cabin is the outdoor bath. Set in the deck facing Woolumbin in the West, sunset is the best time for a soak. The trees towering around you, the sky turning yellow, pink and orange as the sunsets, birds flying home for the night, sounds of the bush, and a deep, hot rainwater bath which ends up under the stars after the sunsets. Someone you love delivering snacks and drinks really tops it off, and although it’s a 1 person bath…two can defiantly fit.
