An absolutely beautiful place that let's you relax, unwind, recharge and reignite. We stayed for 4 nights and we really di not want to leave. Everything was just perfect. The wildlife was amazing, being able to hand feed the local birds that greet you when you arrive, was just amazing. Complete privacy, yet close enough to local tourist spots.

We rarely stay in the same B&B twice, mainly because it’s good to try different places. So the fact that we have had three stays at the Bower is no accident.

This place is a hidden gem, nestled among the trees with complete privacy yet not too far away from local attraction in Mogo and the more commercial Batemans Bay. We had a lovely 2 night stay here and all that we could want for was provided. Wold definitely stay here again.
