We loved our stay at Bluegum Ridge Cottages. Our hosts were warm and welcoming and the cottage was exactly what we were hoping to find. We appreciated the full kitchen, spacious living room area, and separate bedroom. The location was very quiet and very relaxing.
A most enjoyable two night stay in well equipped cottage with all the amenities, except WiFi. Cottage has good views, with Kookaburras and spectacular Blue Gums adding to the enjoyment. Parking is convenient and secure and cottages are far enough from the main access road, which is quite busy, to avoid dust and noise. Owners are friendly and most helpful.
We arrived very late due to a flight delay into Melbourne but it was no problem. The fire was going when we arrived and the place was immaculate. The cottage was very spacious and the delicious bottle of bubbly was perfect! we loved the warmth and comfort the cottage oozed and the view in the morning was breathtaking. Loved it!!
A charming rustic retreat with spectacular sweeping views of the valley and mountains behind, framed by ancient looking Bluegum trees. The welcome here is warm and generous- we enjoyed handmade mint choc fudge, King Valley sparkling, fruits and pantry items as thoughtful complementary inclusions. Another welcome feature were the organic eco-friendly bath products. The local wildlife was abundant, from the wanted (cows, calf’s and horses in the adjoining paddock) to the unwanted (scary spider in living room and frog inside the shower!). The aesthetic is definitely ‘rustic’ and some fixtures looked a little tired, but the beds were comfortable and linen gorgeously crisp. The major downside for us was out of Mary and Des’s control- the extreme weather! The heat never let up and the bedrooms were stifling. After the first diabolical night we requested fans which provided relief from both the heat and noise from the a/c unit. The other pesky issue was the overly complex arrangement of TV/DVD which proved almost impossible to use. However, all in all a lovely stay in a gorgeous setting with generous hosts.…
Fantastic place to stay. Amazing views of the country. Well priced, many thoughtful little extras supplied by the hosts. Great place to stay if doing Craigs Hut via High Country Horses. Only a 3 min drive to High Country Horse. Only recommendation is take food for cooking as about a 15 min trip to get to quality restaurants if eating out and all cooking gear is available in the cottages. Awsome spa set outdoors amongst the beautiful garden.
