Schoolhouse Cottage at American River is just a minute's stroll from the wharf and boat ramp which is an ideal place to while away spare time. Absorb yourself in the activities there - or be a part of it with camera, or rod and line...

American River is a beautiful setting and is the premier harbour for boating and recreational fishing on the Island.It is a peaceful and unspoiled village nestled on a sheltered inlet which ultimately connects Eastern Cove with the aquatic reserve of Pelican Lagoon.

The calm waters are a haven for birds, fish and are ideal for your marine adventures all year round.

Kayaking is ideally suited to this area - calm and pristine. With the fishing spots being only a stone's throw away, take a line with you and try your luck. Being midway between Penneshaw and Kingscote, you are also well-positioned for exploring the rest of Kangaroo Island.

The Cottage - early last century it was once the local school - has been upgraded in a style sympathetic to the original. Accommodation is for up to 6 people in three bedrooms (queen, double and twin). You will find a well-appointed kitchen, spacious eating area, cosy lounge, air-conditioning and a north facing outdoor patio with BBQ and views over The River and Eastern Cove. We are pet friendly - small to medium sized well-behaved dogs are welcome on request.

You can throw in a line off the wharf for your dinner or perhaps you might like to buy some freshly harvested local oysters. You might also like to try one of the fishing charters which leave from the wharf each day.

A rich and varied bird population thrives on both sea and land - from Pelicans and Swans, Cape Barren Geese and Ibis, to the likes of the small and beautiful Splendid Blue Wren in the garden. The rare Glossy Black Cockatoo with its characteristic red tail panel is also an occasional visitor. There are scenic walking trails along the river where you can see Tammar Wallabies, Possums, Echidnas etc. The wallabies are known to graze the grassy verges of the town's streets in the evenings.

Come and enjoy life on Kangaroo Island while staying at the Schoolhouse Cottage!
