Shady Brook cottages are stylish self contained alpine cottages, there are 2 one and 2 two bedroom cottages. The two bedroom cottages have a spa and wood fire. The property is set on 14 acres, half of which is More extensively landscaped with a spectacular and vast array of shrubs and trees. Every season has a spectacular display of color, with thousands of exotic trees, shrubs and vast displays of bulbs in season.Set on the Oven river with a backdrop of mountain ranges, but only 500 metres from the centre of Harrietville you are offered secluded and unique accommodation in an amazing Alpine setting. Within 45 minutes of Mt Hotham and the famous high country wineries, and right on your doorstep are the iconic Mt Feathertop walks. A family business that offers you a personal service and cleaninless of the highest standard. Less
