Quiet, picturesque with pre 1940 decor. Perfect for wedding nights or special occasions. We spent the last two nights of our nine day trip th Beechworth and the high country. Even our small dog was caterred for, dog owners take note. The decor is superb and the owners had thought of everything in this wonderful B&B. Ask for the miners...

Beautifully quiet and relaxing. Excellent place for a weekend away. We stayed in the Captains Cottage & loved it; small, cosy, comfortable bed, great shower. Loved sitting on the verandah overlooking the dam, watching the sun set. Situated between Beechworth & Yackandandah, there is plenty to do if you want activity. We would be very happy to return for another...

Thank you Jan for your glowing comments and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the sunsets as that is why I built the back verandahs on the cottages. I hope we get to meet another time, kind regards Andrew

We stayed 5 nights in the 3 bedroom cottage and it suited our family well. Amazing workmanship to craft a home out old fittings and fixtures and blend with modern conveniences. Warm, cozy and very relaxing after a day of hiking or riding. Peaceful rural surrounds. Great hosts too. Want to go back to Beechworth to explore more in the...

Thank you very much for allowing us to help you enjoy your visit to Beechworth guys. It was a pleasure to host such a lovely and diverse group and we would not have known you had been but the breakfast provisions were gone. Hope we see you again real soon.

We wanted a weekend getaway, away from the Melbourne life, and somewhere which would allow our loving dogs, something with old charm and still modern amenities. Colby Cottages delivered on all of this and more. We stayed in the miners cottage, and we loved it. It had all that we wanted, the fire place was great and easy to use,...

We stayed in the big cabin which was just gorgeous. Wonderful balance of old fashioned charm and the convenience of new appliances and facilities. The kids loved the pool and we appreciated a well-equipped kitchen, bathroom etc. We had everything we needed. Thank you to Andrew and Glenda.

We stayed in the Captain Cottage for a few nights and absolutely loved it. We did get in late the first night, which wasn't a problem, as Andrew told us exactly where the place was and left the porch light on for us. The cottage itself is so cosy and inviting, you wish you could pick the place up and...

Any B&B is going to find it hard to beat the attention to detail in these gorgeous cottages. We stayed in the Miners and loved it so much we stayed for a second night. Lovely owner who showed us through the other cottages - all equally as beautiful and packed with antiques and old wares that have their own history...
