Twenty four hectares of native karri, tingle and jarrah forest on the edge of Wilson Inlet, only minutes from Denmark town and the beach.


Arrival Time: 14:00|Departure Time: 10:00


Creative use of timber and glass features in the Cove???s choice of 5 craftsman-built, self-contained chalets. Glass-fronted log fires make for a cosy winter???s break.

The Cove's 24 hectares was purchased in 1965 by Wallace and Shirley Greenham. Ten years later, Wallace moved to Demark and began construction of the A-Frame, being followed by potter Jonathon Hook, Kim Greenham, and Susan and Illya Cenin. The A-Frame functioned as a communal living space, and building soon began on the workshop complex which catered for woodwork, metalwork and pottery. The woodwork business "Settler's Pine", grew out of a salvage operation following Cyclone Alby in 1978.

All timber for construction of the chalets by Illya and Susan, has been cut by them at the mill on the property. "Karri" and "Tingle" chalets were built in 1989 (with the assistance of three Cenin children) and "The Sanctum" was completed in 1990."Jarrah" chalet followed in 1999 as the second large group space. The Cenin family are pleased to have you as guests on this beautiful property.

A little slice of heaven
Honestly this is the type of place you almost don’t want to review. I’ve been here 3 times now in last 7 years, traveling in from Texas to visit local family. It’s a place I dream about when I leave and when I return it’s as good or if not better than I remembered.

This is where you go to forget about life, the phone reception is lite(but workable), no tv, no mod cons, just peace, solitude and a cabin that you could only dream of building. The owners are true gems and they let you take a sneaky look into their way of thinking by staying here, it’s a place of beauty.

If you come to Denmark stay here, and get out a game of cards or just talk to your family, this is stripped back and bare but my god it’s just what the doctor ordered

Absolute bliss

Stayed with a large group and was amazing. Close to town but still felt like you were on an vacation in the bushlands. Fire places were perfect for sitting around and having late night conversations. Very clean and beds were extremely comfy.
