Great place for a family within easy reach of river, pub and cafe of Porepunkah and a quick and easy drive to Bright. We've stayed in this house twice and it's always been spotless and well presented.- Shane - 31/01/2017

As we were two couples staying it was great that the bedrooms were apart to give each couple privacy.

Absolutely amazing property, you don't need to take a thing. Just go and enjoy. - Tanya - 29/11/2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple but Cozy Compact accommodation which suites a medium sized family. Photos presented in the advertisement give the cabin a larger appearance than it actually is. It was very cosy however & everything functions perfectly. The log fire heated the place perfectly as the nights were less than 0 deg. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights there. It is only 6kms from the Bright township & is very close to Mt Buffalo which provided an amazing adventure & the climb trek to the summit was easy. 35 - 40 mins drive to exceptionally horse riding facilities Tawonga called Bogong Horseback Adventures.
