The Cabin at Kevington
The spacious open-plan living and dining area has cathedral ceilings, a cosy wood-fired heater and fireplace made from locally sourced slate, a huge comfy couch and large dining table. Relics from the gold-mining days adorn the walls.
I wish to provide guests with a 'digital detox' so there is no TV and no internet. There is no mobile reception unless you are with Telstra so you can enjoy the feeling of being totally disconnected.
Music can be played on the Bose sound system using a device pre-loaded with music such as an iPod or iPhone. There is a large trunk full of games and jigsaw puzzles and plenty of books and magazines.
Floor to ceiling windows offer a lovely view across the lawn to the river and a glass door opens onto an expansive deck complete with comfy couch. The perfect spot to enjoy a morning cuppa or an afternoon drink and just enjoy the view whilst listening to the soothing sounds of the river....

Bush Walking & Gold Mining History
We had the best time, exploring the old town site and the gold mines, splashing down the river with our dog, keeping warm by the fire and we even played a game of chess for the first time in my adult life! We love the 4wding in the area and spent the whole day Saturday driving some of our favourite tracks and exploring new ones as well.
Thanks again to Sam for the hospitality and already looking forward to the return trip!...
