We had an extremely relaxing stay in the Stone Cottage. The cottage was basic but clean and comfortable. Beautiful open fire that radiated a lot of heat. Great hot water service showered 8 and still ran hot. The grounds are great and you can let the kids go wild without worry. Beautiful wildlife around you. But don't cuddle the hens,...

Thank you for your review, glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We have given the chickens a delousing treatment, but unfortunately it may be a recurring problem as they lice come from wild birds, which we have in abundance! Thanks again, we look forward to seeing you on your next visit :)

Charming cabins in an beautiful setting. Amazing amount of functional space in a small building. It was only 2 of us, but could have comfortabley accommodated 6-8 people. Well kitted out kitchen and comfortable bed. Our only complaint was that the sofa was old and uncomfortable, but we spent more time sitting on the porch watching the emus and kangaroos....

Thank you for your lovely review. Yes, the old sofas are an interesting one. As authentic and fitting as they are, we will probably end up replacing them with something that provides comfort rather than authenticity! Glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again in the future. Kind regards, The team @ Grampians Pioneer Cottages

We stayed here, together as a family. The owners Corinne and Aiden had only recently taken out over and they were amazing! Corinne was so accommodating, professional and funny. I felt totally at home here. The cabins are all made from recycled material and they are something quite spectacular. I highly recommend a visit!

I've stayed at the Pioneer Cottages a few time and each has been a wonderful experience. From the rustic, quiet cottages to the grazing roos peacefully watching us watch them. The scenery is lovely, the wildlife is active, and the cabins are quite homey. It's really a great place to grill or ride bikes or just sit outside and relax...

Beautiful scenery, rustic cottages, very friendly staff and wildlife at your doorstep. The cottages aren't exactly 'luxury', but they are certainly very charming. Only a 5 minute drive down the road to Halls Gap.

Amazing place to stay! Just far enough away from Halls Gap's touristy 'bustle', to feel totally remote and at peace with such amazing serenity! Looking out the cottage window one morning, I honestly thought Ned Kelly could perhaps appear! That's the real unique vibe you get when you stay there at the cottages! The fabulous managers Corrie and Aiden, really...

You will love the original cottages with wildlife at your doorstep ! Kangaroos bevel leave this place no matter what time of a day it is. Clouds of parrots will add to exotic character. Have visitors from overseas? Bring them here - they will be impressed. Kitchen in the cottage and Bbq area well equipped. Unwind yourself on serenity walk!

Staff were great, friendly & very helpful leading up, the preparation of and after our wedding. The accommodation was great, very clean & plenty of room for the whole family to stay. Great for the kids to run around & get to see the kangaroo's up close.

Many thanks for your lovely review. Yours was our first wedding since coming in, and I have to confess I was a little nervous that everything would go smoothly. And all the more grateful when it did! Your family were all fantastic, and I'm pleased to say we have had no complaints from any of the neighbours! Hope everything is...
