Unwind to the many moods of the Murray River at the Captain's Cottage B&B just a few minutes drive from the Port of Echuca, two and a half hours drive from Melbourne. The two acre property overlooks the Murray River and is encircled by native forest.
The Captain's Cottage Bed & Breakfast is on two acres of native garden, set in riverine forest. You will be surrounded by nature - kangaroos, a wide range of birds, and frogs galore.
The two guest bedrooms are in a separate wing of the house. Each guest bedroom has a queen bed and a single bed, so can accommodate up to three people. (Pricing based on two sharing; extra person sharing is $30 extra). Guests from both rooms share the breakfast/sitting room which overlooks the garden and river. Access is via a separate ramp and entrance.
We love to chat with our guests over breakfast, or share a glass of wine in the evening.
The Horseshoe Lagoon reserve is adjacent to the property, offering a pleasant twenty minute bush walk around the lagoon to the Moama wharf and back across the boardwalk. We are ten minutes walk from Moama and half an hour's walk from Echuca.
Trains and coaches come to Echuca from Melbourne. We are happy to provide transport to the Captain's Cottage from Echuca station should it be required.
We have an unfenced dam and the river, so the property is not suitable for young children. Henry is our large curly coat retriever x Labrador dog. He loves company.
Private bedroom with ensuite, shared breakfast/sitting room. We have 2 acres of landscaped garden. Guests are invited to enjoy the views of the river, the dam, or go for a walk in the riverine forest. Tables, chairs, fire pit, barbeque, banana lounges available for use.
