River Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Picture perfect... cottage by the river. Went to sleep listening to the river running. A great fenced large yard for the dogs and also allowed inside on hard surfaces. Brought back childhood memories of country holidays in a farmhouse, throwing a line in the creek. Not too far into Tumut. Adelong also worth the visit. Very helpful and friendly hosts up the hill.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at Rivers Edge. The location is great, nice and secluded, the only sounds we heard were the wildlife and the river. The water was amazing, we had a great swim in some of the many deeper parts along the property, and Deborah was more than happy to point us in the right direction. The set up of the cottage had everything we needed, with enough room that we were comfortable and had every amenity we could ask for. We are already planning a return trip because we had such a great time here!
