Our Story

Home / Sierra / Our Story

We’re Tasch and Cam and we’re the owners and managers of Sierra Escape Mudgee.  We had been coming to Mudgee as visitors since 2014 and we absolutely fell in love straight away with the entire region.  It had charm, great people, delicious food, incredible wines and stunning scenery – we couldn’t get it enough of it.  We visited several times, and then on our 5 year anniversary we were engaged at the Zin House.

We’d always dreamed of owning property in Mudgee and so in December of 2015 we were fortunate to purchase Abingdon House with some very close friends of ours.

In February 2016 we were joyfully married at the Vinegrove and thus our bond to Mudgee was sealed.  With Abingdon fully booked, we began to look at another venture.  After exploring multiple avenues, we stumbled across Sierra – a beautiful 250 acre vacant block full of wildlife, ridges, hills, creeks, trees and spectacular views and we fell in love. It was the perfect spot for our glamping retreat and thus Sierra Escape Mudgee was born.

Our mission is to provide high quality off-grid accommodation for those who love the outdoors, but still enjoy the luxuries of a hotel.  Sierra is close enough to Wineries and restaurants, but far enough from it all that it is the perfect retreat.

We’re excited to be able to share Sierra with visitors to the area and hope that your trips to Mudgee inspire new amazing stories.
