Lakeside Cottage Luxury Bed and Breakfast Mt Dandenong, Yarra Ranges near Melbourne. A truly magnificent B&B. Stunningly beautiful both day and night! Step inside the door to the irresistible smell of fragrant candles, freshly home baked bread and quiet music playing in the background - and spoil yourself. Slip into a luxurious, fluffy bathrobe and fill the double spa with bubbles. Pop a cork, nibble on cheese and bickies, and just sink into serenity. Graze through the fridge and discover the sumptuous array of breakfast provisions and whip up an espresso or a cappuccino, and then curl up together in front of the gas log fire and watch a 3D movie on the big screen T.V.

A truly magnificent B&B. Stunningly beautiful both day and night! Step inside the door to the irresistible smell of fragrant candles, freshly home baked bread and quiet music playing in the background - and spoil yourself. Slip into a luxurious, fluffy bathrobe and fill the double spa with bubbles. Pop a cork, nibble on cheese and bickies, and just sink into serenity. Graze through the fridge and discover the sumptuous array of breakfast provisions and whip up an espresso or a cappuccino, and then curl up together in front of the gas log fire and watch a 3D movie on the big screen T.V. Sprawl on the couch in the sun-filled conservatory, open the doors to meet the breeze, and just relax, kick back on the king size bed, or be pampered with a massage. The single cottage, specially designed and surrounded by five glorious acres of manicured botanical gardens with mountain views and a private lake, is the perfect secluded getaway. You’ll enjoy complete privacy and ambience - and no traffic noise. Stroll through the gardens and picnic amongst the kookaburras and feed the baby ducklings. Roast marshmallows on the fire pit, or simply just sit and ‘be’ in the lakeside gazebo with the gently spinning windmill hypnotising your mind to turn off. At night the grounds are lit up to highlight the blossoms, the arch and swing bridges, the antique wagons and the fountain rippling the water - and you don’t have to share it with anyone. Then wake up slowly and languish with a 12 noon checkout and amble through the roses once more before continuing on with your journey. You’re so close to so many attractions you won’t know where to begin. Relax, unwind and remember what it is to just be the two of you! It’s enough to make you go ahhhhhhhhhh. Hidden from the world – yet within minutes of the Yarra Valley’s and Mount Dandenong’s finest restaurants, wineries and reception venues, classy tea rooms and easy country drives – you’ll find Lakeside Cottage. Described as the “most perfect, quiet and romantic accommodation destination you’ll find in picturesque surroundings” (by Eat Play Stay on Channel 9), you’ll marvel at the glorious setting, petal-ed with colour, as the ideal place for a marriage proposal, an anniversary, a special celebration, your wedding night, or even the night before your wedding with your bridesmaids. Consider eloping to Lakeside Cottage, or use the grounds for your wedding or debutante photos. A bed and breakfast paradise only thirty minutes from Melbourne’s CBD. A place to remember. A place for romance. A place to refresh. More

First of all, I can not thank Kaye enough for her hospitality and the touching greeting as soon as we arrived. We arrived earlier than expected but she was quick to respond to our requests and very accommodating. We loved our large cottage with plenty of room for us to relax comfortably, a home like feel and luxury romantic accommodation. Amazing rooms and amenities without any problem or difficulties. The fresh bread that Kaye delivered was scrumptious!! Our stay was very brief but ever so memorable and we wished we stayed longer. Everything was clean, super comfortable and had grand style.

Stayed last Saturday night and this cottage is absolutely beautiful if you are looking for a nice quiet night away. The cottage is very well equipped and has a lot of unexpected inclusions like the delicious breakfast (hot & cold options), cappuccino maker and plenty of pods to go with it, Blue Ray & 3D capability and some free movies etc. The Spa Room is great, very romantic and the log-like heater worked really well. Ideal for couples - I highly recommend!

This stunning B and B was were we spent our first night together as husband and wife. It was sensational Kaye has thought of everything from the luxurious spa bath, to the freshly baked bread, foxtel and recliner couches we simply did not want to leave. We loved it so much we have already booked it for our one year anniversary. The gardens are also amazing!

I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay here, especially when you wanted to book next years anniversary here already. I know you appreciated the 12 noon checkout. As you arrived late after your wedding, you could at least make the most of a leisurely breakfast and some of the gardens before you needed to leave. I have just planted 65 water lilies in the lake which I hope will be in flower next year for you to enjoy. I'll put in an order for some good weather too.

Our stay at Lakeside Cottage was tranquil as the cottage is set at the foot hills of the mountains and surrounded by countryside. It also had a few acres of land which we could walk around and enjoy along with a beautiful lake and a fire pit area!! This was a lovely setting for my partner and I to sit out in the early evening with a glass of wine, picnic dinner and music. Thank you to Kaye also who made our stay so relaxing and enjoyable with freshly made bread to have with breakfast, a clean well-kept cottage and lots of lovely extras such as the spa bath with a range of bath salts to choose from. The surrounding area was very picturesque and had plenty of things to see and do. There were also some good local restaurants to chose from which was a definite bonus. All in all a fantastic time away and we will be booking in again to see it in the middle of summer as well as telling our friends and family about the place. Beautiful.

So pleased you loved our piece of paradise. Yes, the gardens will only get better from now on with the blossom filling the gardens with colour. We will have new magnolia's and roses in flower for the first time this year. I like to have something new to see for our returning guests and this season it's definitely the lights on the bridge and gazebo. I have more surprises planned so stayed tuned for updates.

Lakeside Cottage is luxurious accommodation with modern facilities set in outstanding gardens. The welcome on arrival was friendly, the facilities were clean and the 'extras' provided made the stay very relaxing. Loved the spa and the king size bed and sitting in the gazebo overlooking the lake. This is a dynamic setting with the 'wow' factor. I would highly recommend this accommodation.

Great to hear you loved your stay. I know the ducks will be looking forward to seeing you again....and the bread you shared with them. We should have some little ones soon, and that's a real treat. Spring is a great time in the gardens with new life all around.
