Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We just spent 5 nights at Must Love Dogs between Boxing Day and New Years Eve. We stayed in the Garden Suite with Stanley our dog. This was our 3rd stay and definitely won’t be our last. Chris and Charley, as per before, were the perfect hosts. Breakfasts are delicious and varied you are made to feel at home. The Garden Suite is wonderful, very comfortable and private – perfect for our dog. The yard is securely fenced off making Stanly feel relaxed and calm. The rooms are very clean, well appointed, the bed comfortable and the swimming pool a welcome relief from the summer days. Unfortunately, Stanley likes to sit and watch rather than hopping in. Must Love Dogs is perfectly located, with 3 excellent pubs, some excellent restaurants and a winery all withing walking distance. Grace and Thousand Pounds get a special mention and well worth checking out if you want a quality feed. Definitely try the Duriff wines. Especially the sparkling. We took our bikes and trailer (for Stanley) and it is the perfect location for exploring the Rail Trails and other back roads. There are many wineries between Rutherford and Corowa and exploring by bike is the perfect way to go.

Property's Favourite Review
From the . friendly greeting by Charlie on our arrival, with the wonderful M&M( Muffins and Muscat)We couldn't be happier with our generous gift from our friends for my husbands 80th birthday .We hadn't been to Rutherglen for many years, and to take Hugo our sausage dog with us for the first time ever was a little nerve racking. But Chris and Charlie were fantastic, and made us all feel at home. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great so had to leave the brat behind on our day out visiting wineries. He got quite distressed ,but Chris was lovely ,and gave him LOTS of treats. We were all very comfy and Chris's breakfasts were great. We hope to return and stay a bit longer. It was lovely meeting Chris and Charlie, absolutely wonderful hosts, born to do B &B's.!! Hugo loved meeting all of your fur kids, it was wonderful to see them all interacting. Thanks Chris and Charlie. Cheers , Raie and Trevor.

We arrived for a 2 night stay at Chris and Charlie's BnB and were immediately impressed by the private, well-kept garden attached to our suite. Stepping inside the residence, we felt immediately at home in the immaculate, lovingly crafted space. Dog knick-knacks and artwork, a gorgeous clawfoot tub, and even some dog biscuits to welcome ourselves and our dogs into a rejuvenating and truly pet friendly stay. As if this wasn't enough, our eggs benedict and secret family recipe pancakes were divine! During our stay Chris, Charlie, and their gang of beautiful pups treated us as if we were a part of their family. Such a warm and friendly environment, we were sad to go home at the end of our stay! I would recommend Must Love Dogs BnB to dogs lovers everywhere! Thank you for a wonderful stay, we and our dogs will certainly be returning! ❤️🐶🐕🏡

Our stay at Must Love Dogs B&B was an absolute delight! The moment my partner and 2 dogs (Luna [Beagle] and Oscar [Kelpie X]) stepped onto their beautiful historical property, I felt like I had entered a true home away from home. The love for dogs is palpable in every corner, making it a haven for fellow dog enthusiasts and their pawed friends big and small. We stayed in the Garden Suite and had the absolute best time. Our usual escape artist and muck maker had a genuinely good time without a chance of escaping or making a mess. What makes this place truly special is the personal touch. The Chris and Charlie not only welcome you but also your four-legged friends with open loving arms. From cozy dog-friendly spaces to thoughtful amenities, they go above and beyond to ensure a memorable, loving stay. But it's not just about the property; it's about the people. The owners' passion for creating a homey atmosphere is evident in every interaction. You don't just stay at Must Love Dogs B&B; you become part of a warm and welcoming family, where history, furry companions, and genuine hospitality weave together to create an unforgettable experience. I hope you go and see Chris and Charlie. They couldn't have been better hosts. I would live there if I could! PS. Charlie knows his Muscat! Thanks Chris for the Eggs Benedict and the Pancakes :) Hope you see you again soon! - Lachlan (17/12/2023)

Wow! What a greeting! So lovely to meet Chris and Charles and their beautiful dogs. Our 2 rough Collies finally had someone big to play with... Gigi the Great Dane puppy! Such a sweetheart. The Garden suite was beautiful. I was concerned about dog smells, but it was sparkling clean and no trace of a dog being there the night before. The garden provided a lot of room for my boys to run as well as s safe enclosure when we wanted to go out. Chris mentioned she had bath salts for sale made by a local, and I couldn't pass up the claw-foot bathtub - double win for me! I also have to comment on how clean the entire outdoor area was - all the mulch and the 'grass' areas. Remarkable! Chris's breakfast - eggs Benedict! - was delicious. The coffee was better than we've had in a number of cafes. Even our dogs were provided with treats! Lovely to sit out by the pool reading, or under the pergola having a coffee and a chat. Chris's advice on where to go out for dog-friendly lunch and dinner, and Charlie's wine tour was great fun. He's such a character! Thanks again, Chris and Charles, for making our getaway weekend comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable for the 4 of us. We will definitely be back!

Paid for a queen room with a bed and a sofa bed, got a bed and not the other. No kitchen sink, had to wash cups in bathroom, and when we arrived there was dog poo and pre chewed bones all around the back yard, to the entrance that we though we were meant to use. The owner refuses to acknowledge that there was an issue. I had to sleep on the floor as my husband had recent surgery and we could not share the bed. 2 plates and cutlery were in a draw in the bedroom next to the dust pan and broom. No Glasses to use. Absolutely gutted that I feel so inclined to write this message - but $254 for a cold floor we left by 6.30am for a long drive back to Sydney suburbs.

A surprise gem. Fantastic experience for people and pooches alike, was incredibly easy to get settled, especially the dog, a not so delicate Aussie bulldog. Big fridge, big dog bowls, little bbq, outdoor area which was relaxing for all. The massage chairs were a bonus! We didn’t even have time to try the muscat put out on the table. The wineries in the area are dog-positive, and we’ll be coming back again, and again, and again. The rail trail starts nearly at the doorstep too. Finally, breakfast was restaurant quality eggs bene, and we were lucky to share our morning with the dog crew, and our bnb neighbours, so 7 dogs total. 6 out of 5 stars.

This is an amazing place to stay and the host, Chris, sets the standard of how hosts should be. Chris made us, and even more important our 2 fur babies, feel so welcome. We stayed in the Garden Cottage and had a lovely bbq sitting on the verandah in the rain.

We loved our stay in every way! Chris was so welcoming and helpful from the moment she confirmed our booking to saying our reluctant goodbyes. We stayed in the Garden Suite which was cosy with pretty decor and some lovely touches such as hand cream and fabulous bath salts to enjoy in the beautiful claw foot bath. It was an easy walk into town, and also to Jones and De Bortoli wineries. We absolutely loved Chris and Charlie's gorgeous dogs! We don't have a dog ourselves but really enjoyed all the attention from their five adorable fur babies. Chris cooked up a delicious breakfast of Eggs Benedict, served in a beautiful dining room, and we enjoyed our long and engaging chats with Chris. We hope to be able to visit again! Thanks Chris, Charlie and pups.
