Peaceful and inviting
We couldn't have asked for anything else during our stay, well resourced, comfy and a great place to stay for a few days. Highly recommend 😊
You were great guests who cared for my home and left it in such a clean and tidy condition. Thank you for your stay.
Truly a home away from home.
This was a very last minute booking for a 4 night getaway with the extended family to escape the city. Marje was very kind to alter her own family's Christmas plans to accommodate us and we were very grateful. We followed Marje's directions and found the place no problem and the house and property were beautiful, the newly installed aircon was a big plus as well. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed - we forgot cooking oil, open the cupboard there it is; we felt like pancakes one morning, open another cupboard and all flour and the baking supplies we needed, even tapioca flour!
The walk down to the river took a lot longer than 10 minutes, probably because of the heat but we went down the next day with the 4WD and managed fine. The river was gorgeous, so nice and cool and we felt like the only people on earth!
A wonderful experience and would highly recommend to anyone looking to recharge. Thanks Marje.
You were wonderful guests who cared for my home as if it was your own. Thank you for your stay and review.
A peaceful and comfortable bush retreat
On a hill overlooking the Macquarie River, this is a true bush retreat with visiting wildlife and absolute peace and quiet. The house has magnificent views, is spacious and comfortable with a fantastic kitchen if you like cooking. The deck overlooks the Macquarie Valley and has seating for 10, a sun lounge, BBQ and umbrella so you actually don't have to go inside if the weather's fine! We also went on two of the recommended walks with our dog, one along the valley road and one to the property's river frontage. Both were full of great views, wildlife and complete peace. We did not see another person or vehicle on the road. Pets are welcome at the house and the deck is perfect for them as well as it can be secured off so they don't wander and also has a protected area with a roof where a raised pet bed and water are kindly provided. Marje was lovely to deal with, a generous and interesting person. I would recommend this retreat to anyone wanting or needing to get away from it all.
Amazing property with everything you could wish for.
Our stay at On The Stone was wonderful. The property is a true refuge from a busy world, with plenty of nature and lovely walks. We stayed as a family of four with a 4 and 6 year old who loved the tree house. Definitely a big win, they even hoisted there picnic lunch up in the bucket so they could enjoy a kids only lunch date.
The house itself is very spacious and well equipped. Comfy beds and amazing views. The decking area with BBQ and outside setting for 10 was perfect for a GnT whilst watching wedgetail eagles flying over the mountains.
Wonderful rural living with all the comforts you need. The roaring fires were blissful on the chilly evenings and we enjoyed the adventure of cooking a roast in the “ olde world” wood fired Oven/stove.
Thank you Marje for sharing your retreat it was great.
I am so pleased you enjoyed staying at our family retreat. You were wonderful guests who appreciated everything that we have provided for your comfort and bush experience.
Excellent service, clean and tiday house with all necessities, beautiful views. Highly recommend staying here!
What an amazing view! Thank you for a lovely weekend: walking, swimming in the river, fishing, eating and sleeping. Loved all the wildlife especially the shingle back lizards!
