About the property

Great Family size Cottages - Minimum 2 night stay required - Sorry no Pets or Fires

Working in the Upper Hunter? We are a great alternative to a motel!.

Swipe cards are included on key tag, which gives our guests free entry to Glenbawn State Park.

The bedrooms consist of Queen or Double bed in main room and two single beds in each of the other two bedrooms.


Lake Glenbawn Holiday Cottages are only 3 1/2hr drive from Sydney or 2 hrs from Newcastle.

Travellling north along the New England Highway you pass through Singleton and the Muswellbrook, then as you come into the small town of Aberdeen you turn right (opposite the Commercial Hotel) or bottom pub. Follow the signs to Lake Glenbawn which is approximately 12km's. If you miss this turn or want to continue into Scone to pick up supplies, there is another turn off to the Dam as you enter Scone. (via Gundy Road)

Scone Cup & Horse Festival

Lake Glenbawn Holiday Cottages are an ideal location to explore the local world class horse studs. Darley, Arrowfield & Vinery Horse Studs are only minutes away.

Ask about our special 'packages' during Scone Horse Festival and bus service to & from the Scone Cup in May every Year.

Marvellous experience

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for just 2 nights but that convinced us that we would organise a family get together at Glenbawn cottages some time in the future. The cottage was clean & comfortable and our hosts were helpful & accommodating. We had grandchildren camping at the camping grounds opposite & when the weather made that uncomfortable the kids camped in their swags on the verandah of the cottage. We had advised Wayne that this was likely & he had no objection to that and waived any additional charges which he was entitled to do. Reading other reviews for his property I can only comment that we found quite the opposite of those criticisms.

Great cabins but horrible owners, charged extra due to us having people visit our cabin for an afternoon. Terrible customer service DO NOT recommend staying here due to them.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry I do not recall ever charging anyone for having people come to visit. You signed your name as unhappy camper. Maybe you have confused us with different accommodation located directly opposite us. Please call me, as l would gladly refund any extra charges for guests who only visited and not stayed over night.

Great little cabin/not so ok owners

  • 3 of 5

We absolutely loved glenbawn dam. Was only disappointed on how the owners were not friendly or welcoming at all. Ask you so many questions straight up about your vehicles and who is staying as though they are running a jail. Had some friends visit our cabin that were already camping on site and they had the hide to tell us off for it. We can have people visit our cabin..... it was new years for christ sake lighten up we didnt even know they were staying at glenbawn and we ran into them which was pretty exciting. My friends left their car at our cabin one night due to us drinking alcohol and they did the right thing by not drinking then driving. Owners done their 'rounds' (as they call it) and noticed the car. Even if my friends stayed in the cabin it shouldn't matter when you charge over $600 for 3 nights stay. Owners need to remember we pay them hundreds of dollars a bit of NICE customer service wouldn't hurt.

Owner's Response: It's a shame that you people feel the way you do, because each guest fills out a 'guest registration' form which asks the number of vehicles & persons staying - which states non disclosure of extra vehicles or extra persons will incur additional charges. We DO NOT have camping on our premises. Camping is allowed across he road in the State Park. We understand that visitors can turn up during busy periods, but when the same vehicles are still parked up for 3 consecutive mornings, they haven't come over for dinner! Our peak season tariff is $170 per night (up to 4 persons) so I'm not sure how you came up with $600 for 3 nights. I make no apologies for patrolling our premises at night, it allows our customers to feel that their vehicles, boats, fishing & skiing gear is safe and that the only vehicles on our premises are the ones which are supposed to be there. I presume this is one of the reasons why we have many returning guests.

Cottages are lovely, fully self contained with loads of extras. TV, DVD, games, books, own BBQ etc. The cottage we stayed in was beautifully decorated, polished floor boards, leather couch, nice bathroom and kitchen. Very comfy beds also. Very clean and private. If you are looking for a peaceful weekend with friends or family this is a great place to go.
