About Mary Shipway

Hi travellers, I grew up in South Australia, and have lived in Victoria on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula while raising a family. As time moved on I came to this beautiful area know as the Snowy Mountains in Southern New South Wales. I loved the mountains and the wide open spaces and then decided to stay and to build on the property and be part of this most diverse region.

Mary Shipway purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Mary Shipway chose Dalgety

This property was a vacant block with the most outstanding views toward Mount Kosciuszko and the Snowy River, breathtaking, with nothing on the property it provided me with a blank slate to build what I wanted. It has been a very interesting experience and I have certainly learnt a a great deal, nothing like hands on.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is in a very quite area and therefore anyone staying is guaranteed peace and seclusion. the night sky because of the isolation is a mass of stars as far as the eye can see. The home is built in the county cottage style while offering modern features. Best of both worlds.

Superb

  • 5 of 5

Everything we had hoped for and more.....

Very comfortable cosy and inviting. The night sky was amazing - the glittering Milky Way in all its glory away from light pollution entirely.

Mary was the perfect host, friendly helpful but not intrusive.

We will be back.

Fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a PERFECT cottage away from the hustle and bustle. Really cozy and comfortable, lovely hostess, fantastic views and oh so peaceful.

It's still a very reasonable distance from Jindabyne and the drive is very picturesque. Well worth staying there as a base for Snowy Mountains holidays.

We will definitely stay there again in the future.

Country Comforts

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage with mountain views perfect for a family stay away from the Jindabyne hustle and bustle. With all the comforts of home including a fully self contained kitchen for cooking meals to electric blankets and combustion fireplace to defrost after being at the snow fields all day. A very cosy stay indeed.
