Our 3 bedroom cottage is fully equipped for your comfort and tranquility. Set in a semi rural area, Riverside Cottage is nestled on the banks of Carlton River with your own jetty and beach. With an abundance of oysters & mussels your seafood platter is assured,and at the right time flathead are plentiful. The vineyards are just a short drive away as is Richmond, Port Arthur and Hobart Airport.
Riverside is a cosy cottage with a woodfire, large beds and fully equipped kitchen. The gardens have large pine trees and secret nooks, for reading and sunning or just taking in the local sounds of the many birds. A visit to Tassie in November is a must if you love looking at flowers, as Tassie comes alive with flowers of all descriptions - a must to see. Forget Western Australia and their wild flowers, come on over to Tas and see for yourself.
B-B-Q's overlooking the river at sunset are something to experience either with that special person or with the family, we think you will enjoy Riverside Cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved it here. We only stayed 3 nights to our disappointment. Everything was catered for and the fireplace was warm, cosy and inviting. Just another bonus for us. We don't get to see to many fireplaces in Cairns! The river cottage would be perfect in summer where you can relax and spend your days at the boatshed on the river. Perfect in every way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is a quiet and relaxed cottage at riverside. Every thing is ready at home. We love the heating blankets, the well equipped kitchen and the fire place most. My children love the table games, rolling the boat and the water snails at the jetty. Thanks Anne and Collin for preparing the house kindly and carefully.
