Very pleased with our stay. Very clean and tidy. The couches were slightly uncomfortable by being too hard and not soft. Other than that it was good. The grounds are beautiful and would have a myriad of birdlife but it was pouring rain when we were there so we couldn’t bird watch. The spa was also closed due to covid restrictions. The area is very quiet and relaxing. The only thing we were disgruntled with was that we had to empty the bins and wash the dishes when we paid a premium to stay there. I didn’t expect to do any housework.

We stayed for a week as a family of 4, two children aged 5 and 7. The Cottage (Number 2) was spacious, light and bright. The house had everything we could have needed. There was no conventional oven, but a convection microwave so a bit of learning there for us, but all of the manuals are supplied. The pool was amazing, the kids spent time in it every day. You are 2 minutes drive out of town, so still very local and easy to get to everything. Would highly recommend a stay!

Jan was wonderfully hospitable. The cottage was clean and large! with excellent facilities. We had a wonderful time having a much needed holiday. The place is calm and peaceful but easily close enough to duck in to Lakes Entrance for shopping, meals or exploring (5mins). Great place

This cottage was beautiful. Large and spacious in a lovely setting. We enjoyed being just out of the busy town and the quiet property was great for relaxing. The cottage has first class amenities with a very comfortable bed and good quality linens. We stayed in the two bedroom Bass cottage which has a large veranda overlooking the garden. The kitchen is so well equipped and has great modern amenities. The property has their cottages spaced out so they are all providing privacy. There’s a nice pool area and a spa room. The spa was not available due to COVID which was fully understandable. This cottage was fabulous and we highly recommend it.

After a year of being closed more months than we were open - your beautiful review was just the tonic we needed after covid and bushfire closures. Thank you Denise. Your comments reflect what we aim to achieve for all our guests and we are thrilled when this is appreciated. We wish you all the best too and are glad you were able to travel as things have changed yet again with 2020 covid restrictions.
