4/5 Good

Comfy "rustic" cottage
We enjoyed our stay at Warrego cottage. Pennie was very welcoming and had even left vases of roses on our arrival which was a lovely touch. Beds and bed linen very fresh, clean and comfortable. Location was good and we enjoyed sitting on the deck in the late afternoon watching the horses birds rabbits and kangaroos. The cottage is well equipped however badly in need of some updating and cleaning. It is very old and shabby.
Stayed 5 nights in Nov 2021

4/5 Good

3/5 Okay

Watego Cottage
We enjoyed our stay very much, it is a charming cottage in a picturesque setting. David and Pennie are very welcoming. The only improvement I could suggest is to upgrade the queen mattress.

4/5 Good

Weekend stopover
Stand alone country cottage with 270 degree country views from inside. The owners, who live nearby on the property, were welcoming but not intrusive. I enjoyed my time on the north facing deck. The bedrooms and loungeroom are nicely decorated. The kitchen and bathroom are clean and functional but old. The walk to the river was somewhat overgrown and not particularly appealing during the time of our visit. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and it was a pleasant change of pace following our stay in Canberra.

5/5 Excellent

Cozy accommodation
Pennie is a super host. Place is comfy and neat.
