Mystaya River Cottage

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Wonderful recently renovated large 3 Bedroom cottage on the Hawkesbury River with magnificent views across the valley. The house is up on the hill and can be seen in the main photo up behind the boatshed. Direct access to river including private jetty and the use of the verandah area of the boatshed is included with the hire of the cottage.

The cottage has three separate bedrooms with double beds in each room. There is only one bathroom & toilet. There are two lounge areas and a pool table in the cottage.

For an optional extra charge the large Boatshed (shown right on the river) offers an additional entertainment area for larger groups. The interior photos of the boatshed have the timber and metal walls. There are no sleeping or toilet facilities in the boatshed.

Great place to kick back and relax, fish off the Jetty, or go for a paddle on the river!

Great little Getaway

  • 5 of 5

we enjoyed our stay thoroughly! the house is relaxing, the pool table was fun but the highlight is the boatshed a must to get for the time you are there, the fishing off the jetty by day and fireplace by night was SO relaxing. The boatshed had everything from a canoe to bbq to a tv and everything on standby with utensils and fridge.

we will be returning :) !!

10/10 Mystaya River Cottage holiday Feb 2016

This house is amazing with water views at the front and notional park as your back yard. The house and boat shed are very comfortable with plenty of space inside and out easily for 6 people. And both have the best views you could ask for.

A day at Mystaya River Cottage holiday

We had our breakfast each morning outside in the shelter BBQ area away from the sun and rain (where you can cook and eat in most weather conditions) with visits from the local Bush Turkeys, Kookaburras and the resident Magpie’s great way to start the day.

After a day out fishing around lion Island (40 min boat drive from spencer)we spent the afternoons relaxing at the boat shed with views of some of Australia’s Best River and bushlands and caught the occasional fish of the wharf at the boat shed

To top it off we BBQed the days catch at the boatshed again on Australia’s Best Waters and bushlands then ventured upstairs for a game of pool or 2 ,a nice way to spend the day.

PS We launched our 6 meter boat at the local boat ramp with no problem it’s a 3 minute drive from the house and we also docked our boat at the boat shed for 2 weeks in all kinds of weather with no problems (as long as its tied right , we used 4 ropes)

I have spent many years Staying on the on the waters of NSW, Mystaya River Cottage and Spencer is in the top 5.

It’s a hidden treasure

Thanks Simon
