Guests are accommodated in one of two bungalows, each comprising four suites and common areas, gardens, verandahs and terraces accessible to all guests.
The Burra Bungalow has been home to generations of planters and remains the focal point of Glenburn hospitality, with its sweeping Main Verandah, cozy Living Room (with fireplace and library) and grand Dining Room where candle-lit sit-down dinners are held. The four bedrooms have been charmingly decorated, each following a different theme, and are comfortable and spacious, yet cosy. Each of the suites, as their names suggest, offer a unique experience for guests. Some have single rooms attached to the main suite allowing comfortable accommodation for a third (or fourth) sharing the suite, and each of them open on to the main verandah, with private entrances to the gardens behind the main bungalow. Two of the suites have fireplaces and three of the bathrooms have free standing bathtubs while all four bathrooms have a lovely walk-in rain shower. There are views of the mountains from the Front Verandah.
The Water Lily Bungalow, with four more suites and a stunning location on the edge of the Glenburn spur comprises a Living Room, smaller Dining Room, two verandahs and garden areas laid out on two levels, and connected to The Burra Bungalow by a stone staircase.

All four bedrooms have direct views of the mountains, with antique furniture, private balconies, bay windows/or sitouts.
