Testimonials

  • A relaxing and peaceful family country break!

    "We spent a week in Blue gum Cottage and had a completely restful and enjoyable country break! Two adults, one teenager, and a cavoodle dog enjoyed exploring around the 60 acres and meeting the sheep and cattle. The cottage was cosy and warm, and the quality of the beds, sheets, towels and utensils was excellent. It provided everything that we needed for a relaxing week in the country. The location is simply beautiful, added to by the river winding through the property. David and Deb were wonderful welcoming hosts and they even called and took our daughter with them when feeding the animals! We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Elm Cottage."

  • A tranquil gem!

    "Elm Cottage is in a beautiful part of NSW. The scenery is just stunning and there are walks aplenty without getting in the car! But you could spend a week here taking in the picturesque Snowy Mountain area. We had a delightful two night stay with friends at River Gum Cottage. Superbly appointed with large deck overlooking the river. Comfortable beds, cosy and perfect for a self catering holiday."

  • Relaxing for all the family

    "Our family of four and our dog stayed in Yellowbox Cottage the first week of January. The cottage was beautiful, spacious and so well equipped it made for a relaxing stay for everyone. Everything you could want and more was provided. Great advice from the owners meant we took advantage of the beautiful surrounds, even in such extreme weather!"

  • Family stay at Elm Cottage

    "Another great family time at Elm Cottage. It has become a tradition to catch up, enjoy the views and float down the river. We take two cottages that are very suitable for 8 adults and 4 children. Highly recommended!"

  • Perfect country escape for entire family

    "We stayed in Rivers Edge cottage that, as the name implies, is only metres to the riverside and has a fenced yard so was perfect for us with our dogs and toddler. Its a magical location full of birds and other wildlife (even spotted 2 platypus) so is great for nature lovers, photographers and fishermen (we were lucky enough to catch a few trout) as well as being an ideal base for discovering all that the Snowy Mountains area has to offer. The cottage was spacious, clean, and well equiped and the hosts very welcoming. We stayed for a week but all agreed we would have loved to stay longer and are already planning a return trip next year."

  • A perfect place to stay, especially with a large group of friends

    "Elm Cottage was the place we chose to house 31 of us, on our annual get together. Our hosts could not have been more helpful, and went out of their way to make sure our weekend went off without a hitch. The setting is stunning, and on Saturday night, we enjoyed a brilliant meal, organised for us by Roundabout Roasts (platters of fresh and smoked trout, olives, cured meats,cheese etc, and roast pork, beef and lamb with vegetables and salads). Sitting by the river, enjoying the stunning weather with a few glasses of wine, good food and great mates...there is nothing better! The houses accommodated us well, with quality linen and bedding, and furnishings and ample supplies of kitchen essentials. We could easily have spent a week here. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area, so after you have read this review, book it!"

  • Lovely relaxing stay

    "We really enjoyed our stay in Blue Gum cottage and found it clean, cosy and well maintained. The view from the deck was incredible with green rolling hills as far as the eye can see and the picturesque Goobarragandra river flowing below us. Spent most of our visit exploring the local area and fishing along the river.
    The hosts were lovely and very invested in improving the experience of the guests that came through. We'd definitely recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing escape."
