Relax, Unwind, Discover the STONE COTTAGE
Giba Gunyah means "Stone Shelter" and the original cottage at Giba Gunyah is a fairy tale cottage built originally out of timber from the property and large boulders from the river. The cottage, nestled into the slopes of the misty blue ridges of the South East Forests National Park sits high on the bushy hill overlooking lush farming paddocks and the Bemboka River. Sited in a shady cottage style garden, the cottage remains pleasantly cool during the summer months and in winter is made snug with a cosy log fire.
The cottage is pet friendly and pets can roam the large shady gardens, enjoy the walking trails and rocky river - a perfect restful retreat or a romantic hideaway for couples, families and doggy holidays. Spectacular panoramic views of the Bega Valley, with a variety of birdlife, echidnas, platypus, wombats and farm animals.
Pets welcome , soft fluffy towels, luxury linen, cozy wood fires, disabled access, freshly baked bread on arrival, starter breakfast provisions, cottages spotlessly clean, budget priced, special rates for families.
