Our unique cottage offers many natural attractions. It sits at the top of our 50 acre farm, overlooking the olive grove. We bound the Mount Buffalo National Park and have the privilege of sharing our property with kangaroos, wombats, possums and an amazing mix of native bird life including wrens, robins, parrots and Wedge Tail Eagles.
A 30 minute drive will take you to the top of the Mount Buffalo Plateau and one of the most stunning National Parks in Australia.
Along with relaxing on the deck or sitting by the pool you can wander through the olive grove or walk around the property border taking in the views of the Mount Buffalo Gorge.
For the more energetic, bring your bicycle and ride the Murray to the Mountains Rail Trail and ride into Bright or Myrtleford and beyond. The serious cyclist can ride the Mount Buffalo Ascent to the historic Chalet.
The cottage is ideal for a couple but will accommodate four people. It has one bedroom on a mezzanine floor with a queen size bed and an easy chair that converts to a full size single bed. The leather lounge in the living room (downstairs) converts to a queen size bed. We can also provide a porta cot.
A breakfast basket is included in the tariff on weekends and comprises cereal, milk, juice, bacon, eggs, breads and condiments, tea and coffee.
