Snowy Mountain Holidays

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage


About the property

Snowy Mountain Holidays (est 1985) is located on one acre at Towong, 12km east of Corryong in NE Victoria. The views from the Lower Deck are magnificent, overlooking the Upper Murray River, past rolling foothills and onto the Snowy Mountains Range and Mt Kosciusko, Australia’s highest mountain. We are located in the foothills to the west of the Snowy Mountain Range.

A quiet pastoral wonder world, the Upper Murray River area is mostly a fat cattle and dairy farming area. Here you are in the real thing, away from maddening crowds.

We offer two cottages which can accommodate up to 10 people between them. (If you have 7-10 in your group you will want to book both cottages. In that case, there is an additional cost of $90 per night for the additional cottage.)

They are uniquely constructed with open beams and a cozy atmosphere.

The cottages are fully self-contained with linen provided and air conditioned.

See the Cottage descriptions below for more information.

The eastern views over the river onto the Snowy Mountains is from the lower viewing deck and is a favourite communal spot for all to enjoy.

The views from the cottages face west across rural farmland and rolling hills.

Your pets are welcome here.

They are allowed inside if clean and dry, but are not allowed on any furniture.

Please bring your pet's bedding. There are nice walks and lots of river fun for them.

We are 10 minutes from Corryong, Victoria which has good shopping and a few eateries;

1 ½ hours drive from Albury, NSW,

6+ hours drive from Melbourne and

7+ hours drive from Sydney.

We are small and personalized and do our best to make your stay memorable and pleasant. Our home/lodge is on our 1 acre property, so we are near by to advise and help our guests with the activities they are interested in. We also respect the guests who are happiest to be just by themselves.

Things to do:

Canoeing - you can rent a canoe or book a guided canoe trip

Swimming in the river just down from the house



Scenic Walks - along the river

Scenic Drives / Historic Pubs

The Man from Snowy River Museum in Corryong

About Sarah Vise

We moved to the Upper Murray area in 1980 and built our log home first. We built our first cottage in 1985 and our second cottage in 1995.

Sarah Vise purchased this cottage in 1981

Why Sarah Vise chose Towong

We love this area. It was such a wonderful area to discover. Each time we drove into it we felt the peace and tranquility. We still do!!

What makes this cottage unique

The Upper Murray and our property offer a "real" country experience. This is not a developed tourist destination, so you get the fun of experiencing a quiet untouched rural area. The views are amazing. Our cottages are uniquely constructed, ,cozy and personalized. Our quests just love the peace.

I surprised my husband with a quick getaway and could not have been happier with this little patch of paradise! the views are stunning, Ron was very welcoming and could not do enough for us!. Our dogs loved being able to run free and explore the area. Would highly recommend this place to anyone, it was definitely what we needed

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 4 nights at cabin #1 and we couldn't have been more impressed. Owners Ron & Sarah were so helpful and their knowledge of the area is amazing. The views from the 'deck' are unsurpassed. Was so relaxed after our little getaway, just what we both needed.

Lovely stay!

  • 4 of 5

Easy to find property in a lovely location with fantastic views. Very welcoming reception. Our cottage had plenty of space and amenities. Close to the river and to the next town. Was very hot the day we stayed so the aircon came in handy! Our dog was welcomed. Would definitely want to stay again in the future!

A Beautiful Setting

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to arrive after a hard drive through the cloud enshrouded Snowy Mountains. The sun was shining brightly over surrounding valleys and mountain ranges as we looked over the property with friendly host Ron before nestling into our cosy cottage for a welcome cup of tea. A local walk confirmed the ideal location of the property. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped with all that the modern traveller requires for any season. It was a pity we were there only one night as it seemed an excellent spot to stay for a number of days as a base from which to visit the may interesting places within a 100 km radius.
