Bring your friends and spread out in the spacious Captain Samuel’s Cottage a large living room, three bedrooms, including two large double rooms.

Take a short walk through our land to the river front, the setting may inspire you to catch an elusive trout, or feed the local ducks.

Early in the 1800’s a wealthy merchant seaman Captain Samuel Horton decided to hang up his sextant and settle in Ross. He became well known for many achievements, one being having a magnificent Methodist college built on his land and having it named after himself, Horton College. He also purchased a stone cottage in the main street of Ross. The government had finished using it as a low-security convict barracks. This building, located on the banks of the Macquarie River later became famous as “Captain Samuel’s Cottage” where tourists stay instead of convicts. As well as being a convict barracks, the cottage has been a grindstone shop, butchery, antique shop and private home. Built Circa 1830, it represents one of the oldest buildings in Australia.
