We visited the cottages to get away from the city after the holidays and had a great time. The cottages are hidden away on a hill about 20 minutes from Healesville. The cottage was clean, nicely stocked with supplies, and Stewart & Tessa were available...More

Thanks for reviewing your stay. Our temperatures are usually at least 5 degrees cooler than Melbourne which makes for perfect Summer nights!

We stayed at Lyrebird Cottage for less that 24 hours and that was enough to recharge the batteries for us. The cottages are immaculate and very well constructed. Everything is thought of to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Stewart and Tessa are wonderful hosts...More

Recharging the batteries is what we're all about! Most guests find they run even better with a two night stay - hope to see you back.

So glad you enjoyed your stay. Many guests are looking for that switch off break not far from the city and when you are surrounded by native forest, wombats and wallabies and the singing of native birds you really don't need to go anywhere else....More

Only a short drive from Melbourne CBD, very relaxing gorgeous surroundings. Close to great wineries. The cottage has everything you need for a great stay and is very clean and well maintained. Thank youMore

Response from StewartandTessa, Owner at Lyrebird cottagesResponded 29 November 2017

Our guests are always surprised we are just over and hour away from central Melbourne but native animals like wombats and wallabies graze and move through the property while you still see Melbourne in the distance. The only sounds are birds and at night the...More
