The hand crafted, 3-bedroom stone cottage is full of colour and character. Its very clever layout consists of separate living and sleeping quarters, 2-bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. This stone cottage offers the perfect accommodation solution for families and groups of friends. The front building is the Kitchen and Living Room. The bedrooms and bathrooms are in the back building and each room opens up onto a covered outdoor breeze way, providing privacy for each of the 3 bedrooms. This is a very untraditional house layout.
This house does not have air-conditioning or central heating. There are floor fans and plug in electric heaters in each room.
Located on the edge of American River and 5 minutes drive to Pennington Bay and Red Banks, this house offers access to unlimited walking, hiking, fishing, swimming, surfing and wilderness adventures.
We are more than happy to help you plan your Kangaroo Island vacation and can assist with directions and activities depending on the weather conditions.
Linen and towels are not included with rental. However, we are happy to arrange bed linen at an additional cost.

A true Island style holiday house.
This stone cottage was hand crafted by a local Island family. Each stone was collected near American River and together the family built the cottage, including the unique lead light windows and hanging art throughout the rooms. Staying at River Front Stone Cottage is like staying in a special piece of Kangaroo Island life-style.
