An idyllic bush retreat overlooking the cascading rapids of the Barrington River.
If peaceful riverside accommodation set amongst rolling green countryside is your thing, you’ll love Riverview Cottage. Located on the picturesque Barrington River nestled beneath the peak of Mount Prince Charlie and overlooking the river’s most spectacular rapid, The Steps, Riverview Cottage could not be more idyllically positioned. Best of all, it offers comfortable, self-contained accommodation for a crowd.
The cottage can accommodate 11 people across three bedrooms and has two bathrooms to ease the traffic at shower time. The main bedroom has a queen bed, the second has two bunk beds, the third has a triple bunk and there’s a pullout double sofa for additional guests.
If your crowd is slightly bigger than 11, overflow guests could camp at The Steps Campground which is adjacent to the property and has full amenities including hot showers.
The living spaces at Riverview Cottage are open plan with a modern kitchen, spacious lounge room and a sprawling deck with outdoor dining area and, of course, a barbeque.
When you’re not splashing about in the river or spotting wildlife on its verdant banks, you’ll be chilling on that deck watching the sun go down over the Barrington River Valley or just passing a lazy day with a book as the rapids trickle incessantly below.
On that note, don’t forget to pack your bathers, kayak and lilo; the rapids finish at a wonderful, big rocky pool where kids and adults alike will relish in cooling off in the warmer months.
Managed by the Barrington Outdoor Adventure Centre, the Riverview Cottage can be booked as part of a white water kayaking expedition, or simply as a fabulous place to unwind with family or friends.
