Nestled on the side of a hill in the Macquarie River goldfields is this unique, secluded retreat on 70 hectares with spectacular Eastern views and river frontage. An ideal place for writers and artists to work or for families to take time out to reconnect with nature or to experience living in the bush before they buy.

Located just 30 minutes from the regional cities of Bathurst and Orange, explore the local wineries, visit the early gold mining towns of Hill End and Sofala, see where gold was first discovered at Ophir or try panning for gold yourself.

Comfortably furnished, this home has both a gas and a wood stove, dishwasher and front loader washing machine. There is an outdoor kitchen with a wood fueled stove and BBQ as well as a gas BBQ on the deck. For your communication needs, A Telstra mobile connection and a satellite broadband service are available on the premises.

This home is ideal for children and pets and is wheelchair accessible. There are toys and games to play, a trampoline and a recently constructed tree house. Our DVD collection provides a selection of movies for children and adults. Your pets can sleep inside at night, or the large deck can be cordoned off to keep them safe.

Upstairs is a library, office with futon sofa bed and two bedrooms with queen sized beds. Downstairs is the children's room with double decker beds and trundle with a queen sized bedroom next door. Another bedroom with a double sized bed is off the lounge area.

The bathroom has a shower and a large bath with the laundry off the kitchen. Please note water restrictions apply during the dry season for use of the bath as we use rainwater.

No recreational motor bikes or quad bikes are allowed on this property. Shooting and hunting is also prohibited because we love our wildlife and they too have a right to live in this very quiet, special place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Property and beautiful surroundings! Fabulous location with a wonderful Aboriginal history - Marje could tell you all about it! The views are stunning, and the surrounding bushland does not disappoint in giving that feeling of peace and connection to nature. The house itself is well equipped to allow you to stay in comfort, and the spot is beautifully placed for all manners of bushwalking, so bring your hiking boots!! Close enough to Bathurst and Orange to supply your stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful location We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at On The Stone. The house is warm, comfortable and had everything we needed. The views and walk down the the river were stunning. Such a peaceful location and a very relaxing break. We went home feeling recharged and re-energised. Marje was very welcoming and helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredilbe property! Our stay at 'On The Stone River Retreat' was all we could have hoped for. A wonderful place to take our young family and our pup. We found 'On The Stone' to be very welcoming, cosy and relaxing and also catering well to those with a spirit of adventure. We highly recommend this excellent property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing retreat We stayed at On The Stone for 2 nights and it just wasn't long enough! It is about 30 mins from Bathurst in a beautiful bush setting, overlooking the Macquarie River. The home is very cosy and comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly want or need....right down to the lovely crystal port glasses! Marje was so friendly and met us on arrival to explain how things worked and she even had the fire going for us. We loved exploring the property and going down to the river. If you want a peaceful, idyllic getaway I couldn't recommend On The Stone highly enough.
