Certificate of Excellence
Winner Trip Advisor Top Vacation Rental 2011,2012,2013. Elm Cottage is just 4 hours drive from Sydney. It is a pet friendly property, which takes you away from city life and helps you to slow down and enjoy nature at its own pace. Elm Cottage is your home away from home. Enjoy a drink on the balcony and watch the cows and sheep meander by. Why not take a stroll along the two miles of river bank, fish for trout, swim at our private sandy beach, and in the evening, with crystal clear skies, enjoy some stargazing, then curl up to sleep to the sounds of the river below. Whether you're on your honeymoon, celebrating a special occasion meeting up with family and friends, perhaps a fishing or skiing holiday or just looking for an unforgettable spot to relax and recharge your batteries, then Elm Cottage is your ultimate holiday experience. For those special occasions Elm Cottage will organise fishing trips, ultra-light flights, breakfast or lunch baskets or a hamper full of local produce and wines. All our luxury cottages are self-contained, positioned 60 metres apart for privacy and individually designed to cater for all occasions. Approximately halfway between Sydney and Melbourne, Elm Cottage is the perfect place to meet. Elm Cottage, the ultimate in Tumut Accommodation, is a year round destination.

Another great family time at Elm Cottage. It has become a tradition to catch up, enjoy the views and float down the river. We take two cottages that are very suitable for 8 adults and 4 children. Highly recommended!More
