This cosy cabin is nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac (accessible by road) surrounded by mountains and located on the river bank, 5 mins from the 24/7 car ferry. Nestled in the picturesque MacDonald Valley minutes from Wisemans Ferry the river cabin is the ideal spot for a quiet winter getaway or a recreational summer holiday.
The cabin has its own private boat ramp to the MacDonald river with the adjoining Hawkesbury River nearby. Boaties will find this spot the perfect place to launch small and mid-sized boats with ease at mid and high tide. Not suitable for large boats such as Malibus etc.
Alternatively, you may want to leave your boat anchored at the front of the River Cabin. Note that we have no jetty or pontoon.
At the end of the day, retire to the large covered waterfront deck for a BBQ with a glass of wine or a cold beer and listen to the birds or the splashing of the fish in the river. You could try your luck at fishing. There are a bream, flatheads and jewfish in the river waiting to be your dinner. Just throw a line in from your own backyard.
The fully fenced-in front lawn faces the beautiful mountains and a large paddock where you can see kangaroos arrive for their morning and evening meals.
This cabin sleeps 5. It has 2 bedrooms, 1 with a queen bed and 1 with a bunkbed which has a double at the bottom and a single at the top. The chaise in the lounge room could also be utilised for an extra child. A new bathroom and a full size modern kitchen.
