The Milson is no ordinary river house, more boutique hotel. We think it is one of the most relaxing places in the country and all less than a one-hour drive from the Sydney CBD. The luxury fit out includes custom-made and antique elements which combine to create a casual and very comfortable atmosphere. There is no better place to unwind and for those who want to add a bit of action to their stay, you can explore the river using our kayaks and canoes, go crabbing (we catch mud and blue swimmer crabs from the end of the jetty), visit one of the Hawkesbury’s many hidden inlets, spend the day out on the water fishing or head out for a bush walk. The Milson is one of only a few properties in the area that is north facing so we get maximum sunshine on winter days and enjoy the afternoon shade in the summer.
Chef’s Kitchen, Dining and Living Areas
The gourmet kitchen is set-up with polished concrete benchtops, a 5-burner gas stove, oven and rangehood, a large fridge and freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen comes well-stocked with top-quality pots, pans, knives, Nespresso machine, Aerocinno, Nutribullet and walk in pantry with all the basics (you will receive a full list of everything in the kitchen on booking). There is a separate dining room overlooking the river and a comfortable lounge with a Belgian linen sofa, chairs with feather cushions and a beautiful Cheminees Phillipe wood burning fireplace. There is also rustic wicker chairs on the deck which can also be placed round the fire pit and a built-in BBQ with wok burner.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
The Milson has two king bedrooms. Each bed is fitted with luxurious Sheridan sheets, 100% Australian wool underlays (for extra snugness and warmth in the winter), two sets of pillows, a feather duvet, a beautiful alpaca throw, bedside lights and power points. Both bedrooms have equally large ensuites (almost 6 square meters). The back bedroom ensuite has a large stone bath with shower and the front bedroom ensuite has an enormous walk-in shower. Both ensuites are tiled from floor to ceiling with river stones, have custom made industrial copper tap ware, enormous 12” shower-heads, vaulted cathedral ceilings, vintage cabinets retro-fitted as bathroom vanities and heated floors (heaven in the colder months!).
There’s a single and a double canoe, 3 single kayaks, life vests, paddles, crab pots and a couple of fishing rods (sorry, for insurance reasons you will have to supply your own tackle and hooks).
Dogs are more than welcome at The Milson. The property has a lovely little sandy beach and there are paths running along the river’s edge and behind the property to take your furry friends for a walk. Your pets are allowed inside the house but we ask that you please keep them off the furniture and the beds.
We also ask that you keep your pets on a leash when out walking due to the abundant wild life and not all of the neighbours love dogs as much as we do.
