It was magic, very peaceful - good to relax and to leave everything behind.
We couldn't work out the little oven, but this might have been just us being stupid.
But we had the BBQ and a really great time.
Thank you for a wonderful stay at the Ponderosa. A very comfortable haven amongst the tall trees. A lovely balcony at the back and atmospheric interior
We chose to stay overnight at the Ponderosa Bed and Breakfast while attending a wedding in the local area.
This quaint and rustic B&B is located approximately 2km north of the small rural town of Boolarra.
The secluded cedar cottage, is fully self-contained and provides an old-fashioned charm with all the mod cons and is surrounded by picturesque tranquil gardens and native bushland.
Facilities include a fully equipped kitchen, separate bathroom, air-con/ heating, a lounge and dining area, BBQ facilities and an outdoor decking and seating area.
There is also a Television and DVD, but you are here to enjoy the countryside, nature, the wildlife and the flora of the area, right?
As part of your stay, there is also a generous breakfast hamper for two which includes everything you need for a fully cooked breakfast, as well as cereals, fruit, fresh ground coffee/tea and a range of locally produced jams and honey- some by the owners themselves.
The owners, Neil and Kate are a welcoming, lovely couple.
They will have an initial quick chat with you, show you all the features of the cabin and around the property, before leaving you to your own devices to enjoy the secluded serenity.
Some of the local attractions to visit include; the Old Mill Site, the Lyrebird forest walk, the Grand ridge trail and even the Grand ridge brewery.
There are also a few evening dining options within only a few minutes’ drive to Boolarra.
If you are after a peaceful getaway from the hustle and bustle of a busy city life, then this is the place for you.
Representing great value and good service, you won’t be disappointed.
We highly recommend it.
