Large and comfortable property

  • 4 of 5

Great location to get to the snow or to take off on a day trip. House is large, great heating and plenty of room. Manager of home was excellent. Very quiet, beautiful spot backing onto the Ovens River. Only 4 Adults and one baby in our group but would be suitable for a bigger family group. Is an older home with some renovations done, provided a very comfortable stay. Owners had thought of everything you might need, kitchen was very well equipped. Thank you we look forward to being able to come back hopefully next year!

A quiet spot in a quiet town

  • 4 of 5

We all really enjoyed our stay at this property. Overall we were impressed with the size and how many people it could sleep. Great heating (and I assume cooling) with a pleasant walk out the back to the river it was a picturesque place to be.

Only things worth mentioning is the 20 minutes to Bright is the closest we will get to shops, but on the upside we are all the closer to Mt Hotham.
