Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property Throughly enjoyed our stay at this property! Very well set up for visitors. Beautiful location just off the beaten track. Highly recommend to anyone wanting a stay on the river just outside of Sydney. Look forward to our next trip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just Perfect! A perfect holiday home that is all about relaxation and beautiful views. The private pontoon is great for some late afternoon fishing and sundowners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peaceful location Loved our 3 night stay at this beautiful cottage. We had our own boat and the private jetty was a great gateway to the vast Hawkesbury. But truthfully I would have been happy to relax on the deck. I loved how you could follow the sun around and even on the wintry days we stayed there was always a sunny spot, a comfy chair and a beautiful view somewhere on the deck. Some of the appliances/ audiovisual were a bit hard to work out but that is minor. The idea is to get away from technology. Wifi signal was good though. I would advise bringing fresh fruit and vegies and meals as shopping limited. We are already planning our next stay as we didn't even get a chance to explore Spencer thoroughly, do some fishing or use the kayaks that are available. If you are boating I would strongly advise ordering a map of the Hawkesbury before you go as nobody appears to have them - even the shops/post office in Brooklyn.
