On The Stone River Retreat
- SQM 170
On The Stone Retreat is situated in the picturesque Macquarie River Valley at Killongbutta, just 30 mins from the regional cities of Bathurst and Orange.
This retreat is ideal for families wanting to get away from it all and reconnect with nature. Pack a picnic in the backpack and coolers provided and explore the historic gold mining towns of Hill End and Sofala and visit where gold was first discovered at Ophir on your way to Orange.
There are great walks around the property and along Killongbutta Rd as it winds around the river valley. You have exclusive access to 100 acres of bushland and river frontage but no shooting, hunting or recreational bikes are allowed on this property which is abundant in wildlife.
The home is warm and cosy in winter with a central, open fireplace and a wood burning combustion stove. A feature of the kitchen, in addition to the gas stove, is a vintage 'Canberra' wood fueled stove that cooks the best roast dinners. Another wood fueled stove is in the outdoor kitchen when it is too hot to bake inside.
Plenty of wood is provided during the winter months when you just want to sit around the fire and enjoy the views from the lounge room window. There are plenty of open spaces in this home to find a comfortable chair or bed to just relax while you still feel connected to your surroundings.
