Set on the banks of the beautiful Goulburn River, the cabin is ideal for a romantic escape, family getaway or weekend with friends. You can choose to do a multitude of activities in the area or just relax by the river in summer or by the fire in winter.

The space
The spacious open plan living and dining area has cathedral ceilings, a fire-place made from locally sourced slate, a cosy wood-heater, a huge comfy couch and large dining table. Relics from the gold-mining days adorn the walls and the 70's touches are a nod to the era in which the cabin was built.

I wish to provide guests with a ‘technology detox' so there is no TV and no wifi. There is mobile service only with Telstra.

Music can be played on the Bose sound system using a device pre-loaded with music such as an iPhone. There is a large trunk full of games and jigsaw puzzles suitable for adults and plenty of books and magazines.

Floor to ceiling windows offer a lovely view across the lawn to the river and a glass door opens onto an expansive deck complete with comfy couch and arm chairs. The perfect spot to curl up and enjoy a morning cuppa or an afternoon drink and just enjoy the view.

The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need and has a walk in pantry. An espresso machine (BYO beans), a selection of teas, Vittoria coffee for the plunger or dripolater, sugar and pantry essentials such as oil, vinegars, sauces, salt and pepper, herbs and spices are provided. There are two large fridges, one with a small freezer. There is an electric oven and stove-top as well as a microwave.

There is a separate toilet and spacious bathroom with shower over the bath. Locally made 'Dindi Natural' hand & body wash is provided.

There are two bedrooms one with a queen bed, the second with a double bed. Woollen quilts, a range of hypo-allergenic pillows, luxurious 1000 thread count sheets, quality quilt covers and towels are provided. Electric blankets are on the beds in the cooler months.

WOODEN TENT
There is the option for up to 2 people to sleep in a comfy wooden tent beside the river. If you wish to sleep in the tent this must be pre-arranged & if the booking is for 2 people, extra person charged will apply.

There are outdoor chairs, sun loungers, hammocks a yoga mat and an outdoor dining table. Choose to cook on the large gas BBQ/oven, or cook on the wood-fired bbq (fire-ban restrictions permitting)

Guest access
There will be no access to bedroom 2 if only 2 guests are booked.
Access to the Wooden Tent (bedroom 3 by the river) must be pre-arranged and is available for booking of 3 or more people, or extra person charges will apply.

Other things to note
No firewood is supplied from 1 December to 28 February unless the weather is unseasonally cold.
The cabin is dog friendly but I must be informed prior so I can let you know my rules around dogs.

Kevington, Victoria, Australia

The cabin is set on the banks of the Goulburn River surrounded by state forest, a 10 minute drive from Jamieson and 55 minutes from the base of Mt Buller. The historic Kevington Hotel just a 5 minute walk up the road offers great pub meals, a pool table and at times, has live entertainment on the purpose built stage beside the river.

Jameson is a 10 minute drive where you will find a well stocked general store, cafe, pub, tennis court for hire, laundry facilities, a local history museum, the Jamieson Brewery and Grill, and the Jamieson Berry Farm. There are lots of historic buildings in town and there are maps for self guided walks at the cabin.

Apart from fishing for trout (you must have a licence) and swimming at your back door, the local area offers horse riding, snow sports at Mt Buller as well as cross country skiing, fishing and water sports on nearby lake Eildon. The boat ramp at Howqua is just 15 minutes drive away. The Howqua Caravan Park rents canoes and stand up paddle boards to use on the lake. You could visit one of the many local wineries and the farmers market is every 4th Saturday of the month in the main street of Mansfield.

Pack sturdy walking shoes for bushwalking, there are walks of all levels, either along the bitumen road or along the numerous 4wd tracks into the bush. The tracks are great for mountain bikes too and the winding road with the river running beside it, is popular with cyclists. Visit the ruins of the old Kevington township, up the track across the road from the cabin, or the old gold mines that are dotted over the countryside. Do not walk off the track as the area is riddled with old gold mines.

Fishing rods are provided, byo lure (no bait required but you must have a license to fish). There is a huge tube for lazing around on the swimming hole or for floating down the river (arrange a pick up further down the road). The river is very popular with canoeists.

There are several lovely swimming holes on the property but note that the river rocks can be slippery so it's advisable to wear old trainers or appropriate footwear. Children must be supervised at all times.

Depending on the season you can pick blackberries, plums, apples, oranges, bay leaves, mint, parsley and rosemary on the property.

Hi I’m Samantha, I’ve purchased the cabin at Kevington as my weekender and I’m so happy to be able to share it with you. My dad and my late mum purchased the land in the early 70's when I was just 5 years old and built the cabin on it. I spent every weekend and school holidays here as a child and it holds cherished memories of times spent here with my family and friends. My career has been in hospitality, travel and hotels and I’ve been very fortunate to have traveled extensively staying in many beautiful hotels and houses around the world. Despite this, I still regard the cabin to be one of the most special places in the world and I hope you’ll love it as much as I do. I also manage Riverstone Cottage. Using guest's feedback and my experience in the hospitality industry, I intend to continually make improvements to the cabin and the cottage so you too will have cherished memories of your stay and will want to return over and over again.
