Crossfield Cottage

Mark & Carolyn Huckel are the 4th and current owners of Crossfield Cottage:

On January 30th, 2015 we purchased & took ownership of 85 Gaskell Rd naming it after John and Margaret Crossfield. The name seemed fitting as we have ties with the Crossfield family.

Since renovating we have also got to know the nephew and his wife of the first owners.

We took ownership of this tired and run-down old home from
January 30th, 2015, then finally we opened on March  25th, 2017.


Our dream was and has been to own and run a B&B/self contained cottage to bless others with a lovely place to stay.

We have 3 Children: Aaron, Emily, and Chelsea, who all helped us at different times to renovate this home: as it’s been a family project.

It has been a time of happiness; we have shed a few tears, and moments of frustration, but lots of joy, and determination.

We are a part of Riverland Central  Church, Berri.   You are most welcome to come along or even connect with another church in our region.

Mark is a Driving instructor and Carolyn works at Rivergum Christian College as an ELS.

Crossfield Cottage was once known as Bonview, as from the veranda you can see a slight view of the lake.  We have been told when there is a summer storm, the lightning over Lake Bonney is amazing to see.

Our region has great food, wine, events, and activities.  Having Lake Bonney and the Murray River is a huge bonus to our region of the Riverland.  We are about promoting local food and wine in the cottage, as well as olive oil, soaps, figs, capers, dried fruit, local fruit, and vegetables.  Even things made by small local businesses like chopping boards, bath caddy, garden art, paintings, and photography.

This was a dream that has become a reality…..
We want to show what, the Riverland does best…….

And let people stay in a cottage with character and charm, adding a dash of luxury.
