New luxury, off-grid CABN accommodation unveiled in historic Adelaide Hills site

CABN’s new eco-friendly, off-grid cabins have been unveiled in the Adelaide Hills at The Cedars, where luxury meets sustainability.

Adelaide Hills is set to welcome a new accommodation experience that combines luxury with an eco-friendly ethos. CABN, a prominent South Australian sustainable accommodation provider, is opening a series of off-grid cabins at The Cedars, a historic site famously associated with Sir Hans Heysen, a notable landscape painter and early conservationist.

Located less than a 30-minute drive from the Adelaide CBD and close to the township of Hahndorf, CABN will open its latest venture in August. The site features eight self-contained cabins and one CABN X, all set within 30 acres of picturesque land. The accommodation can host up to 26 guests per night and promises an authentic Adelaide Hills experience through collaborations with local tour operators and producers.

Guests will have the opportunity to explore The Cedars via a walking trail. This trail includes the Heysen family homestead, which is Australia’s oldest surviving art studio and publically accessible, as well as tearooms and sections of the prominent Heysen Trail. The cabins themselves are powered by solar panels, feature combustion heating and provide outdoor seating areas complete with fire pits. CABN has ensured that no trees or shrubs were affected during construction and initiated the planting of over 1,100 additional trees in the surrounding areas.

The development aligns with the ‘Winter. Our Way.’ campaign by the South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC), which aims to boost domestic tourism across the state. According to the SATC, CABN Kuitpo Forest, another CABN location, has recorded significant interest and is amongst the most popular deals so far. With more than 180 deals statewide, the campaign seeks to highlight the diverse tourist experiences available during the South Australian winter.

Minister for Tourism, Zoe Bettison, expressed her support for the new venture, stating, “Regional tourism is an important driver of the South Australian economy, and it’s critical we continue to deliver strategic and sustainable growth.” She added, “It is wonderful to see South Australia’s own CABN open in one of our most historic and iconic tourism destinations. With an array of world-class produce, art, and nature offerings right on the doorstep of these self-contained eco-cabins, I have no doubt CABN Hahndorf will help entice visitors to stay and play for longer in the Adelaide Hills.”

Michael Lamprell, CEO of CABN, highlighted the unique aspects of CABN Hahndorf. He noted, “CABN Hahndorf stays allow true immersion into the property, a sprawling picturesque landscape that inspired both Hans Heysen and his daughter Nora’s artwork. The Hahndorf CABN experience is unique in that guests will stay where the Heysen family as artists lived and breathed their work. To stay with CABN is to disconnect and find inspiration in nature – The Cedars is a perfect fit for that with its beautiful visual imagery and rich artistic heritage.”

Bookings for the cabins are already underway and filling up quickly. Find out more & book here.
