Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful and gorgeous view onto the river! The property was beautifully presented inside and out. Everything we needed was there and we enjoyed the isolation. The property is right on the river bank with amazing views and peacefulness. The boys in the family enjoyed fishing for trout. Would love to go back again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, peaceful escape. This property is a lovely house with a fully equipped kitchen, quality fittings, luxury sheets and towels and gorgeous furniture. Nobody cares though, because the site is unbelievably divine. Parrots at the kitchen window, kangaroos in the garden, the river at the bottom of the lawn, lovely old trees and surrounded by mountains. Peaceful, secluded, delightful. We want to go back in summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful and picturesque We really enjoyed our stay in the rustic Miner's Cottage. The area out back and down at the river is a great place to relax and watch the animals go about their business. Would definitely recommend the Miner's Cottage. Andy, the proprietor, was helpful and accommodating. If you go into the nearby town of Jamieson try the chocolate fudge from the general store - delicious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A dream. The miner cottage is so well appointed and cosy, the scenery and the abundance of wildlife is breath taking, will definitely be going back.
