It is also perfect for a couple that only require a shower within the bathroom facility.

Blue Gum possibly offers the most magnificent kitchen view anywhere within regional Australia."

We struck an unseasonal heatwave so it was great to have air-conditioning to keep us cool. Well fitted out and great position looking out to the river.The 4-legged kids had a great time in the river but need to be wary of snakes.

We loved the tranquility and the size of the property. Accommodation was perfect. Pity we could not stay longer. My family, nearly covered the whole property. My daughter fed the some of the farm animals and she loved it. This was the best facility we have found that accommodates our dogs as well. We love taking the dogs on holiday with us and so many don't have this facility. I would go back when I get the chance.

We had a fabulous time staying at 'Blue Gum cottage'. It is an ideal place to stay for visits to the snow. It would be a great place to come back to in the summer time as the scenery is beautiful. My children loved taking walks along the river. We found the hosts to be friendly and a great source of local information. The cottage itself was extremely comfortable, clean, had lovely decore and all our needs had been anticipated. Thanks Sharyn(Bella Vista, NSW)

The service was excellent and friendly. The quality of the cabin I stayed in ( Red Gum) was exquisite and I found my stay to be both extremely relaxing and also refreshing. The scenery was also amazing, rural NSW at its very best. Another aspect was that I could take my dog and he had 60 acres in which to run, the dog also had a great holiday.
