Beryl and John made us very welcome. A generous breakfast was provided and the cottage was extremely comfortable for a weekend stay. Home away from home. Easy walk into town and close to wineries. We highly recommend Cuddle Doon Cottage as a place to stay when in Rutherglen.

This cute little cottage was all we could ask for when visiting with our family from the UK, ideal location for winery tour and 'a day on the green' day out. Being dog friendly was great for our dog Flo. The owners couldn't not be more helpful even down to changing the BBQ gas in less 5 minutes many to... More

My husband and I stayed here for the Australia day long weekend. We have two dogs and it was fantastic having them in the house with us. There is also a great yard for them to play in. Everything was thought of especially the breakfast supplies they were fantastic! Thank you to beryl and john for making our stay wonderful.

We had a great few days at Cuddledoon cottage from 9th Jan 2015. The cottage was immaculately presented, comfortable, warm when we needed it to be and cool when we needed it to be. As with most places, it's the little details that really make a place memorable: the bag of Snakes lollies on the kitchen counter, the huge quantity... More

We were driving back from our Christmas break via the little country towns in Victoria and decided to have a break & stay the night somewhere as the 40C heat was getting a bit much for Max, our dog.

We visit Rutherglen 1-2 times a year and always stay at Snuggle Doon. Lovely cottage, with all the amenities you need. Clean and very comfortable, close to town too. Beryl and John make us feel very welcome with extra goodies in the fridge. Highly recommend. Faye, Peter & Family
