5/5 Excellent

Five days with friends
Beautiful part of the world with welcoming hosts. Cottage had everything we required. Very restful and peaceful. Close enough to town and other villages in the Snowy region.

5/5 Excellent

Brilliant location, cottages clean and well equipped
We were pleasantly surprised to find a quality retreat less than 2.5 hours drive from Canberra. Being pet friendly and super clean, our comfortable Cottage had everything we needed. Enjoying the wildlife from our balcony to floating down the Goobarragandra River on inflatable tubes . To be honest, the place was much more stunning than what we were expecting from the pictures and descriptions on webpages. The cottage was quite thoughtfully decorated and perfect for us as well as our furry friend. The view was amazing and we slept listening to the sound of water flowing through the river. The outdoor deck with was perfect to make dinner on the BBQ and enjoy the great views. Will definitely be back for a longer stay next time.

5/5 Excellent

Peace and pace as only the country can bring. Recharged the body and mind in the comfort of home
Perfect way to spend Christmas Day.

5/5 Excellent

An excellent property in a beautiful location.
The property is very well maintained, with any issues being addressed as soon as possible. Red Gum has a beautiful outlook over the Goobarragandra River. It is so peaceful and relaxing and it is always hard to leave the property.

4/5 Good

Great location and house for a family and pets
Our family of four and two sheepdogs enjoyed staying at Little River. Unfortunately our timing with the hot weather wasn't perfect. Nevertheless it's a great spot for swimming in the river, exploring Tumut, try some trout fishing and walking around the property. The house is set up well with all the amenities. The hosts include some basic items such as salt, pepper, sauce, clingwrap etc which is most appreciated. It's only a 15 minute drive to Tumut so it's not far to go if you need some things. The only thing was scary or unusual was the daily arrival of the wind off the mountain at sunset. Just be prepared for a windy night. My only suggestion to the hosts would be to include a portable fan in the children's bedroom as the main air-conditioning in the lounge on hot days and nights does not quite reach the bedroom.
