Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Nelson Summerhouse is a cosy cottage set on a hill, 2 minutes walk to the river and 5 minutes from the hotel and store, with glimpses of the Glenelg river and 180 degrees views of the National Park.
With a comfortable chair placed next to a library of books, a beautiful kitchen, full length veranda, views from both bedrooms with comfortable beds, 2 bathrooms, the Summerhouse is the perfect space for the whole family.
There is also room for your boat and cars.

The space
With our pretty native garden it is no wonder we have a myriad of native birds visiting along with the kangaroos. We supply bird seed for our bird feeders (the birds will love you, especially the rosellas and little blue fairy wrens who hop on the veranda).
Relax on the veranda and take in the peaceful view.

Where you’ll be

Nelson, Victoria, Australia

Nelson Summerhouse is close to the wonderful Nelson Pub with Neil at the helm, the fabulous Barn complex, famous for it’s delicious steak meals, also Port McDonnell, a crayfishing port, with a great pub and coffee shop, Periwinkles.
In Nelson, the general store has a fine array of homemade savoury goods and a limited array of supermarket items. Please do the bulk of your food shopping on the way or bring from home.
Mt Gambier and Portland have the major supermarkets and great fruit and vegetables.
With safe swimming at the estuary beach and the wonderful Glenelg river to explore by boat or canoe (hire available by the store)
and a huge amount of wildlife and birds, Nelson is a haven for travellers.
A short walk from the Summerhouse is the Isle of Bags jetty, and a bit further walk will bring you to the dear little beach at Simsons Landing.
