So comfortable and immaculate

  • 5 of 5

Immuculate, modern, comfortable and romantic cottage. Providing essentials as well as indulgent luxuries on arrival to a heavenly placed bolthole where you can be as immersed in or romote as you prefer. Catherine is a wonderful hostess, genuinely caring for all her guests needs above and beyond. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home and allowing us to experience an idyllic country lifestyle. We will definitely return.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We all enjoyed our stay. The garden was big enough for the 8 & 10yo's to amuse themselves and the dog was right at home.

Other Activities:

River-Walk river track to town

The property is located at the end of a quiet court with off street parking right at your front door. It is 6 minutes easy flat walk into town. You can walk in along the Ovens River looking for the family of platypus, or you can walk along the well lit streets. Perfect for walking home from restaurants at night.

Visit the wineries either for a free tasting or a meal. Walk on Mt Buffalo. Swim in the Ovens River at the end of the street. So many things to do. We give you two pages of local knowledge and insider tips when you book.
