Stone Stream ECO Cottage, a very green retreat...

Accommodation designed for travellers who like to avoid tourists. 


Stone Stream cottage is just a little bit off the beaten track. 

26 km NE of Dorrigo cocooned in a little valley overlooking Eve Creek.

It is a secluded, self contained rainforest eco cottage created for just one couple. 

Your hosts, Evan & Peta,  stock the kitchen with everything you need to create,

a big country breakfast. Including free range eggs from our own chooks, 

bacon, yoghurt, cereals, toast, plunger coffee, and a range of teas. 

Also, there is usually a few extra treats to snack on during the day. 

Stone Stream cottage overlooks the creek with cascades and rock pools. 

It is bounded by rainforest, wildlife, giant old growth trees, lush pastures, lashings of fresh air 

and lots of blissful peace and tranquillity. Perfect for bushwalking & Bird watching.

Arrangements for some meals can be made, or BYO supplies and self cater.




Stone Stream ECO Cottage 

A note on "Romance".....

Stone Stream is ideal for those of us who are "Romantically Challenged".

Mother nature has really laid things on quite thick here. She is obviously out to impress.

Simply discovering & booking Stone Stream is, in itself, 

technically deemed an "Act of Romance"

We are very happy for you to take full credit for the stunning scenery, 

starry skies, babbling brook, cute cottage, fab food  etc etc....

A special note on the weather.


Stone Stream is situated on the Eastern Dorrigo Plateau in an area known as Brooklana. 

The area is so lush and beautiful because it is at a higher altitude, 

thus, is cooler and much wetter than right down on the coast.   

The high rainfall results in our stunning rainforests and landscape. 

Sometimes we can experience 4 seasons in a day. 

So, always pack an umbrella & some cool weather clothes even in summer.

  • The cottage has everything you need to keep you comfortable regardless of the weather:-

  • The cool rainforest and creeks for those hot days.

  • The veranda overlooking the creek & paddocks is perfect for watching sun showers.

  • The heater will keep you, and the cottage, toasty warm during those chilly times.

  • There are two large umbrellas at the cottage, perfect for sun shower strolls. 

  • Rainforest aromas are delicious after rain.

Summer is usually warm during the day, often with an afternoon storm or sun shower.

Autumn is characterised by cool crisp mornings, warm days, misty evenings and cool nights.

Winter is renowned for crisp frosty mornings, clearing to stunning sunny days,

followed by chilly nights, when the mist rolls into the valley like a blanket,

(a lovely time to cosy up in the cottage).

Spring can be unpredictable. Hot and sunny one day, cool and stormy the next.

and to really unwind and get a true sense of the peace and tranquillity of Stone Stream cottage.
