Absolutely beautiful setting - a morning cup of tea on the terrace admiring the view was a simple highlight. Easy access to Jamieson brewery and town and Mansfield along beautiful gently winding roads. The cabins aren’t flash but they are in good condition, very spacious, very clean and warm.

Very peaceful, a variety of bird & wildlife. A beautifully maintained property and the pool was a big plus on a super hot day.

Relax in a beautiful valley

Pros: Great view. Kangaroos and birds near the cottage at breakfast time. Comfortable and roomy. Large kitchen.
Location: The Eildon Dam, Howqua River valley and Goulburn River upstream to Woods Point - all spectacular.
We booked the cottage to use as a base for a few days while we explored the Mansfield, Jamieson and Woods Point areas. It was a good choice.
