Ruse Estate chalets offer guests a truly spectacular, unique place to unwind. Situated amongst rolling vineyard-covered hills, your beautifully appointed chalet unlocks access to our vineyard, bushland, rolling parklands, lake, dam and creekline. Their favourite pastime is exploring the 80-acre property by foot, animal and plant spotting, or kayaking on their lake.
Whether you sit on your own deck soaking up the atmosphere or enjoy a drink in the carriage overlooking the dam, jetty and amphitheatre, there's no shortage of scenic places to sit and take in the beautiful scenery, and the serenity.
What are you waiting for?
Only a 3 hour drive south of Perth, Ruse Estate lies in the heart of the spectacular Margaret River wine country, referred to by locals as ‘Down South’. Positioned 10 minutes out of the Margaret River township, Ruse Estate is surrounded by rolling hills of vineyards, where you could easily imagine you are in the wine growing regions of Italy or France.
A stay with them provides the perfect base for exploring the region’s famous wineries, galleries and beaches. This region offers something for everyone. You can surf and swim at fabulous beaches, go caving, bushwalking, paddling, hike the ‘Cape to Cape, cycle along the regular biking trails or explore the mountain bike trails. There’s a new quad bike adventure tour that looks fabulous.
Food, beer and wine lovers be warned- there is so much on offer down here that you are at risk of going home with tight trousers. We highly recommend that you book in early to any restaurants or wineries that you are interested in, as they do get booked out.
Ruse Estate Retreat is located on a stunning 80 acre property that features it’s own vineyard. The property is simply idyllic and it’s the perfect place to stay when you want to get away for some quiet time. The property features everything from rolling parklands with a train carriage on a beautiful dam setting with a jetty, through to a beautiful ‘lake’ on the Chapman Brook. There is natural bushland, 16 acres of grapes and going for a stroll around the property is their favourite past time, and it will be yours as well when you stay with us.
They have 3 solar passive modern chalets that have been positioned to maximise the picturesque views of the property. The chalets are positioned well away from each other to ensure privacy is enjoyed by all guests. They are set up with fully functioning kitchens and have been furnished with an understated elegance that blends in beautifully with their surroundings.
Ruse Estate is registered with Land for Wildlife (2154), a voluntary nature conservation State government and Parks and Wildlife Initiative. The Estate is home to the likes of Quenda (bandicoot), Phascagales and Ringtail Possums and many other animals such as frogs, racehorse goannas and skinks. The Estate is also graced with visits from birds such as the beautiful colourful splendid wren, Carnaby, Baudin and Redtail cockatoos, eagles and other birds of prey, and the elusive Masked Owl. They are hoping that their property will be used in the future for controlled release of some of these endangered animals and birds.
