We had 8 of us staying at Riverbend in Dec 2013. Plenty of room in the house, around the farm and heaps to see and do.Just a gorgeous location - we made use of the kayaks and the dam, whiling away lazy hours with a drink. We visited wineries, went bushwalking at Hotham, and just relaxed in general. Bikes, ballgames etc were included with the house.I'd love to go back with my horses - there's an arena, stables & paddocks with decent fencing, and plenty of trail rides in the local area. The house is decked out in natural wood furniture, lots of it made by the owner himself. Seriously nice stuff, chunky & beautiful.On the property there's a couple of horses, chooks & an alpaca. Definitely would like to come back!5/5 by ,
What an amazing Springtime stay we had at Riverbend Homestead! We spent our days bicycle riding, horseriding and fly fishing - all in perfect sunshine. The Homestead was a wonderful place for our party of 10 people to spend time relaxing in the seclusion of the beautiful valley. We only stayed five days but came back completely refreshed from the peace and quiet. There was plenty for the kids to do - following the horses, collecting eggs each morning from the chickens, playing table tennis, basketball, volley ball and soccer. They never complained of being bored and we barely saw them! Thanks Ed for sharing your magical homestead with us. We will definitely return.5/5 by ,
OMG this property was the best. Absolutely everything it claimed to be and more. Clean, comfortable and a great place to chill in the country with the kids. The owner was awesome. This property is a must.5/5 by ,
What an excellent weekend we had! A brilliant place to unwind and relax in absolute comfort. The house has everything you will ever want and need in an accommodation. The view was unforgettable. Communication with the owner was a pleasure. I would highly recommend a stay at this property, you���ll not be disappointed.5/5 by ,
It was a nice & cozy place to stay for holidays. Thanks ED for the eggs. If anyone wants to enjoy the serenity of nature and isolation from crowd, I would recommend this place. Great facility for Table tennis and Badminton.5/5 by ,
A perfect house in an incredible valley surrounded by mountains, flowers and wilderness.Huge spacious open plan living area with surround sound speakers inside and out as well as badminton sets for the backyard, table tennis in the garage - just the right amount of space to play, relax and entertain. The verandah made a peaceful place to sit, eat and chat after a big day of play.Ed is GREAT! but GO SLOW as you drive past the house at the base of the driveway - too much dust = health nightmare for poor Ed.Definitely book it for a group of mates - best weekend we've had in ages.5/5 by ,
