This historic property was the site of one of the two original settlements of Tumut and was where the first bridge over the river was built. It is home to the largest English Elm in the Southern Hemisphere.

Six generations of local knowledge ensures your stay will be informed & welcoming. Your host Brett also has a life time of experience fishing the local rivers, creeks & dams & offers fishing advice to all guests.

Great place to stay in any season

  • 4 of 5

It's a great place to stay in all seasons, with a heater and electric blankets for the winter, and an air conditioner for the summer. Also the cottages are relatively close to Woolworths Tumut and a Caltex petrol station. The Snowy Mountains is around an hour away from Ribbonwood Cottages.

Amazing getaway - Super hospitable

  • 5 of 5

Brett (our host) was friendly by greeting us and offering advice and ideas about the area. We stayed in 2 identical cottages, each setup with linen and heating when we arrived.

The scenery and animals on the farm were a great change from the city. Brett offered to light the fire for us when we wished and we managed to spend a night at the fire, by the river, toasting marshmallows - YUM!

Would definitely stay again.

Great for kids

  • 5 of 5

We loved our two night stay at this family friendly retreat. Brett (the owner) was warm and welcoming, and made sure there was plenty of wood in the paddock for a lovely campfire beside the river. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and affordable. Our son loved the friendly cows. Selwyn snow fields were just over an hour drive away. We highly recommend these lovely cottages and will be back.

Wonderful location. Nice & helpful Host

  • 5 of 5

We selected the Platypus cottage to stay at, during our visit to Tumut and Mount Selwyn snow fields. It was a very pleasant experience from the time of the first telephone call to Brett, our wonderful host, who was kind enough to provide us with all the information we needed to plan our stay.

When we arrived, we got a warm welcome from Brett as well as from his two canine companions which made the whole family feel at home. The cottage was very nice and in a peaceful surrounding yet at the same time, conveniently located only 5 minutes’ drive to Tumut shops where you have a wide variety of restaurants, a Coles and a Target store as well.

Our kids enjoyed feeding the two gentle horses and also playing with the two friendly dogs each day after the day’s exploring of the surrounding areas.

Wish we could have stayed for few more days but left promising ourselves to return in the summer to explore more and also for those Trout Brett promised to teach us catch.
