This delightful bed and breakfast is a retreat set in the rolling hills of Harcourt, Central Vic. Our apartment was comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. Food supplied in our room was very generous and Ada continued to add personal touches along the way. The farm provides interesting points - wander amongst the friendly alpacas, walks up the mountain where seats are...

We stayed for 3 nights on this lovely property. We have travelled widely in Australia over the last 35 years and this place has to rate amongst the best 2 or 3 places we've ever stayed at. The rooms aren't "flash" in a city slick way but they contain absolutely everything needed. Very comfortable. Ada is extremely helpful and determined...

A beautiful B&B with beautiful hosts. ! What a great way to spend our 50th birthdays. Clean, comfortable and and amazing views of the country side. Fresh baked cookies on arrival, scrumptious breakfast provisions and everything else we needed. Best B&B we've ever stayed at.

We celebrated our 10th and 20th anniversaries at Millduck. In the intervening 10 years, Ada and Prue made an already gorgeous environment even better. Their sense of aesthetics and attention to detail both in and outside are excellent. The room and amenities were spotless. Ada is friendly, hospitable, and discrete. The alpacas are a delight. The surrounds are stunning.

Beyond the hustle 'n bustle of the freeway, we wound our way through the back roads of Harcourt, up into the rolling hills to discover one of the most delightful country retreats. 'MillDuck' is truly a reflection of Ada and Prue's hard work, dedication, commitment and passion which is reflected in every aspect of this unique property. Ada and Prue...

We can not say enough about this exceptional B&B. The Unit was very comfortable, the grounds were amazing, including the marvelous gardens and the gorgeous Alpacas. Ada's and Prue's hospitality was exceptional, we could not ask for more. Both my wife and I were 200% satisfied.

Millduck never disappoint! Quiet and comfortable so much so you would just want to stay in watch the fire in the wood heater and just enjoy the tranquility. The alpacas is a bonus as is their veggie patch which you can help yourselves to for ingredients to make your breakfast! We had some very fresh asparagus (so sweet) and shallots...

My wife and I enjoyed our weekend here immensely. The cottage is lovely and Ada made us feel right at home. The Alpacas are very friendly and the view from the cottage is beautiful. We will be back, sooner rather than later.

What an absolutely spectacular B&B. My fiancé' and I were delighted with the accommodation and spectacular views of this hidden delight. Our only disappointment was we could only stay one night. Ada, the owner could not have been more helpful in answering our questions about MillDuck. We will definitely be back and next time we will stay for two nights....

This was my third stay at Millduck, and my partner's first. It was just perfect. Ada and Prue have thought of everything to make their visitors feel welcome from the breakfast supplies in the fridge to a box of wood, paper and kindling on the verandah. We had a most restful and refreshing couple of days there, with the only...
