Friendly and accessible stone cottage built by local Kangaroo Island family located in the shade of American River and minutes walk from the jetty. This is a perfect holiday house for those wanting to stay in a central island location.

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 Sugar Gum Stone Cottage is like staying in a special piece of Kangaroo Island life-style.

The Cottage

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 property is laid out in 3 buildings. The front building is the spacious Kitchen, Dining and Living Rooms. The middle building contains the master bedroom and ensuite. The back building contains 2 bedrooms and one bathroom. The three buildings all open up on to a shared courtyard with outdoor setting. Therefore, there is much privacy between rooms and a great house for sharing amongst friends and family.

This house does not have air-conditioning or central heating. There are floor fans and plug in electric heaters in each room.

Nestled in the heart of American River amongst the sugar gums and abundant bird life this cottage is a 5 minute drive from Pennington Bay and Red Banks. It 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.

We have a property next door called Silo Stone Cottage. These 2 properties can be hired together to sleep up to 12 guests.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cosy cottages We really enjoyed our stay at the cottages, especially the kitchen and lounge area. We also like the fact that the bedrooms were in different buildings, since this gave us privacy. I would stay there again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The property manager is very attentive. She kept in touch with me before and during the stay to make sure everything is ok. Great service! The best part is my dogs are allowed inside the property :)
