Booked through booking.com, we didn’t really know what to expect, but it turned out to be a quaint little cottage in the Dandenong forest. It is well appointed with plenty of breakfast supplies in the kitchen. Our kids particularly enjoyed the swing out the back!

Hi there, Many thanks for the positive review. You would have been booked into the 2 bedroomed family suite which is great for small families. Glad it suited as we try to keep cost down while making it work for us too. Yes the garden in particular is a treat. Warm regards Kathy if you book direct we can generally offer a better rate too next time.

We stayed 6 nights here and had a wonderful relaxing stay. We had a studio type cottage with a spa bath and small balcony in garden surroundings, There are only 2 cottages and one apartment type accommodation attached to the main house. It was quiet and very comfortable. The hosts were just delightful and nothing was too much trouble. We were provided with sumptuous supplies for breakfast including muesli, fruit, juice, eggs, bacon, smoked trout, several different teas and coffees and each morning we got fresh bread and/or croissants and the newspaper delivered to the door. It was central to all the mountain attractions and we walked to the Mount Dandenong Hotel and shopping strip (5 minutes) & The Pig and Whistle ( 10 mins). My husband was able to practice his saxophone and clarinet whilst there too which was a bonus. Don't go expecting 5 star matching furnishings and toiletries or a garden with laid out paths and clipped hedges. It was clean, very comfortable, quirky and homely with the nicest possible owners. We loved it

Room Tip: only 3 cottages so any would be good

Thanks to wonderful host Kathy! Cottage is spacious, clean and tidy. Nice comfortable beds. Kitchen was well stocked-up (oil, seasonings etc) making cooking very convenient. Breakfast was superb...freshly baked bread with a variety of spreads like peanut butter , honey and vegemite. Nice garden with table and chairs. Extremely great place to relax and be with nature.

Went here for the weekend and was very welcomed by the owner when we arrived
the room was nice, it was a cold day and the owner had the heater on for us nice and warm.
The touches of having food and drink in the fridge was absolutely unexpected. Great place to stay walking distance to couple restaurants and bakery not that you had to go to get bread or the newspaper for breakfast as the owner did it for you.
