Cabin in Lower MacDonald, NSW
This cosy cabin is nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac (accessible by road) surrounded by mountains and located on the river bank, 5 mins from the 24/7 car ferry (you can see the ferry lights from the deck). Nestled in the picturesque MacDonald Valley minutes from Wisemans Ferry the river cabin is the ideal spot for a quiet winter getaway or a recreational summer holiday with your own private boat ramp to the MacDonald river and with the adjoining Hawkesbury River nearby. Alternatively, you may want to leave your boat anchored at the front of the River Cabin.
Waterskiers or cruisers will find this spot the perfect place to launch from with ease at mid and high tide. At the end of the day, retire to the large waterfront deck for a BBQ with a glass of wine or a cold beer and listen to the birds or the splashing of the fish in the river. You could try your luck at fishing. There are a few flatheads in the river waiting to be your dinner. Just throw a line in from your own backyard.
The fully fenced-in front lawn faces the beautiful mountains and a large paddock where you can see kangaroos arrive for their morning and evening meals.
This cabin sleeps 5. It has 2 bedrooms, 1 with a queen bed and 1 with a bunkbed which has a double at the bottom and a single at the top. The chaise in the lounge room could also be utilised for an extra child. A new bathroom and a full size modern kitchen.

loved it, great place to base out of and explore the surroundings with my young lads. Top neighbours too, very friendly yet secluded spot. this is also a top position to set up and watch the night sky. cozy and easy to manage I will be coming back to this place for sure. owners are only happy to make it the stay comfortable. the only wrinkle and it has nothing to do with the property is that the town shuts down from 19:30 onwards for dinners and things but that adds to the charm.

It is situated in a beautiful area. The house is neat and tidy. It is suitable for a family of 2 adults and 3 kids or for 2couples. The deck is ideal to eat and enjoy the view and quiet. The boat ramp needs attention as when it's low tide it's very hard to get jet ski or boat out of the water. Great spot for fishing or crabbing. No laundry so ideal for a couple of days.

Lovely spot comfortable for 1 couple NOT 2 couples
This is a lovely spot great deck & great if you have a boat or jet ski you can use the boat ramp. Simple internal set-up open plan lounge kitchen & main bedroom looks onto the river. 2nd bedroom however has a creaky clunky bunk bed, the bottom is a double very uncomfortable for a couple, make for unhappy sleepless nights, fine for children no doubt. We also ran out of toilet paper & dishwashing liquid on our first night with no shops open, and our feedback to the owner / managers fell on deaf ears they didn't even acknowledge or apologise. Not the way to get return trade!

We had a wonderful time staying at The Riverfront Cabin. The facilities were great and it was fantastic to be able to ski to our back door. The Lower MacDonald is an outstanding river spot. Our Kids had a ball and we appreciated the owners hospitality.
