Set on the banks of the pristine Goulburn River, surrounded by state forest, the cabin is ideal for a romantic escape or an adventure filled getaway. You can choose to do a multitude of activities in the area or just relax by the river in summer, or by the cosy fire in winter.

The spacious open-plan kitchen dining and living room 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.

Floor to ceiling windows offer a lovely view across the lawn to the river and a glass door opens onto an deck complete with comfy couch with country charm. A perfect spot to enjoy a morning cuppa or an afternoon drink and just enjoy the view whilst listening to birdsong and the soothing sounds of the river.

Bedroom 3 is a comfy 'wooden tent' which sleeps two, set down near the river which has a wall of glass at one end with river views. It is very romantic… (BYO linen)

Note there is no TV and no mobile reception unless you are with Telstra but there is wifi.
