Crooked Tree is a dream come true!

Alix and Ken bought the 10-acre piece of land in 2006 with, literally, no idea what they would do with it. The guest-house idea took seed and evolved, quite organically, into what is here today. Designing, building and everything else that brought Crooked Tree to life was a lot of hard work but well worth it as many of our happy guests will attest.

Come to see the story for yourself!


Length of Stay

  • May 1st through October 31st - Minimum 3 nights to however long you'd like to be here!

  • Longer term stays in the off season (November 1st to April 30th) may be considered individually


  • A 50% deposit is required at the time of booking to secure a reservation. This may be made by credit card or by etransfer (etransfer preferred!). Accepted credit cards include VISA and MasterCard.

  • Balance of Payment - due at the time of your stay.



  • Parties cancelling prior to four weeks in advance of the arrival date for high season (July & August) or two weeks in advance of the arrival date for mid and low season (September through June) will be refunded their 50% deposit*.

  • Within four weeks of the arrival date for reservations made for July & August (high season) or within two weeks of the arrival date for reservations made for September through June (mid and low seasons), a cancellation will result in a refund of the 50% deposit* only if the suite is booked by another party. If not, the deposit is forfeited.  If part of the time is booked by another party, the refund will be prorated accordingly.

  • Should you arrive a day (or days) later than your booked arrival date - or leave before your booked departure date - you will be charged the full stay amount for those dates

*Both refund scenarios will be less a 5% cancellation fee.

(You may want to consider travel cancellation insurance for your trip)


Check-in & Check-out

(exceptions to the times may be accommodated depending on the dates - check with us first)

  • Check-in time is 3:30pm or anytime later

  • Check-out time is 10:30am or anytime earlier



  • Although our children are grown, we are parents so we know from our own travelling experiences how difficult it can be to find a nice place to stay that allows children. At Crooked Tree we do not discriminate! We only ask that you please be very mindful of other guests' privacy and desire for peace and quiet.

  • There is no charge for children under 2 years of age; for those 2 to 12 years of age the nightly rate is $15; and those 12 and older are regarded as extra adults and a $35/night charge applies.



  • Well behaved ones are welcome! We love our animals and have travelled with our dogs so we get that guests often want their furry family members to come along.

  • Pet owners are asked to PLEASE respect the right to bring pets to stay at Crooked Tree by:

    • cleaning up after them outside (we have poo bags if you are in need)

    • absolutely NOT letting them up on any furniture/beds 

    • keeping noise levels to a minimum

    • NOT having them off leash and running about on their own on the property

  • A maximum of two pets per suite are allowed.

  • We charge a nominal pet fee - $15 per night per pet 

  • We reserve the right to charge an extra pet cleaning fee if your suite is left in a condition warranting same.  Most of our 'pet guests' are great but, sigh, unfortunately a few are not and HUGE pet clean-ups (hair everywhere!) are required.  It is already a very big job to get our large suites readied for their next inhabitants so we do not need an additional burden. 



Smoking is only permitted outside on the grounds and away from decks so as not to bother other guests. Butts must not be discarded on the ground (you'll find an ashtray in the cutlery drawer).
