“Relaxing ”
Reviewed August 30, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here for two nights. Perfect peaceful place to relax after visiting the local wineries and breweries.
Chilled out under the gumtrees next to the billabong and took morning walks and bike rides around the pretty gardens and surrounding hills and bush.
The mud brick cottage has a nice homely feel with plenty of books, couches, music and rugs to laze around on.
Watched the sunset on the balcony with cheese and wine whilst watching the birds playing on the water
In the evening you can hear a symphony of frogs and crickets.
This place was magic during winter and can't wait to visit again during spring, summer or autumn.
Sue and Bill are kind, down to earth and great to chat with and there dogs have lots of character.
We will be back soon.

Thanks so much for staying with us and for your lovely comments in the Guest Book ~ and for leaving The Burrow so immaculate ! We really enjoyed having you to stay.

It was such a pleasure to have you stay with us, two people who made the most of every moment, even striding off in the late afternoon to see if any wombats might be out early. I did think a search party might be called for ! We loved having you, as did the Airedales, and we hope that a little of The Burrow's R&R stayed within you for the rest of the week at least. Hope you will be back soon for longer ~ we are still only an hour away !

Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful and charming review, and sharing your pleasure in ways that will make everyone smile. We were totally charmed with your presence and truly hope that it will be possible for a return visit later in the year. You seemed to fit with ease and comfortable acceptance into all that The Burrow could provide, and your sensitivity to the environment was beautiful to see. Thank you so much for your friendship. It was a delight to have you. Warmest regards, Sue & Bill

Thank you for such a lovely review of your stay with us. The flowers liked their mention too; one of the joys of making our guests feel comfortable and at home is with small touches that are personal. It's always a great pleasure to see our guests relaxing and finding their own space at Wombat Bend, and we sincerely hope you will visit Victoria again and include another stay in The Burrow. Cheers, Sue & Bill

“Serene location and welcoming hosts!”
Reviewed May 1, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at the Burrow for eight nights for our honeymoon. Port and cheese were just some of the delights that awaited us when we arrived - Sue knew exactly what we needed to help us ease into post-wedding relaxation!

It was very easy to come and go as we pleased - our hosts were full of recommendations for places to visit and things to do in the area. Staying at the Burrow allowed us to visit many wineries throughout the Yarra Valley at our own pace.

Breakfast was fully catered for but self-managed, affording us the opportunity to enjoy very lazy mornings. We would often eat on the porch, overlooking the billabong and joined by the plethora of birdlife that call it their home. The natural beauty of their property and the surrounding region, which we explored through many walks and hikes, is remarkable!

Comfy chairs and warm blankets were most helpful for the brisk mornings and chilly nights!

Sue and Bill clearly have the gift of hospitality. Would visit again for the cheese bread alone!

It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay for your honeymoon ~ considering the hundreds of places you could have chosen, we are honoured that you chose The Burrow, and that you really made the most of your special start to married life. Two people extremely well suited ! Thank you for being such lovely guests and if ever there were a role model for 'young marrieds', it has to be you two. Our very best wishes for all the years to come ~ and maybe a return visit too. Cheers, Sue & Bill and the Airedales
