The Riverside Bothie is a peaceful, warm and quiet wooden cabin with an adjacent covered and protected deck area for you to enjoy.
There is both a ramp and a ladder access to the cabin and deck. The surounding grass areas and the paddock offers direct access into a shallow section of the Wakamarina River. The river beach area is usually empty and is yours to soak in, or fish , or whatever you choose!
The cabin is fully insulated and has been built utilising both old and new materials to reflect the site's history as a gold miners hut once occupied by "Moody Mundy"
However, the 12 volt solar power, gas cooker, the hot water shower and toilet facility are somewhat more up to date than 150 years ago when there were several thousand gold miners living in tents and chasing their fortunes!
It is nestled on the banks of the Wakamarina River in Canvastown , Marlborough.
Built on the site of a former gold miner's hut, the Riverside Bothie enables guests to experience nature close up and be your base to explore the beautiful rural countryside and the historical gold mining area that is Canvastown.
We are a retired couple living nearby on the property and meet and greet our guests on arrival with a breakfast basket and`to introduce our Riverside Bothie.
