What an immaculate cottage to stay in.

Review of Vivere Retreat

Ange has hit the top end of the market with her accommodation at Pear Tree Cottage B&B. Her attention to detail is spot on, as she provided many extra little nicknacks that made our stay extremely pleasant. Locally sourced breakfast supplies; specialist teas and coffees and freshly made muffins were thoroughly enjoyed. The decor was very tasteful and the cottage was spotless and very comfortable.

Great accomodation, exceptionally professional host. A sure bet of a good experience. Location is stunning with broad sweeping views over the rolling country side. Booked last minute as a result of issues with other accomodation and the host was most helpful and kind.

Hosted by a very friendly couple, this is an idyllic couples get away. We stayed one night in the Studio cottage. The cottage is elegantly furnished and has a self contained kitchen and a BBQ on the verandah. The spa bath was well utilised too. There are plenty of movies and music to entertain you. There are some amazing walking tracks in the area, a short drive away.
There is some building work on site for a new cottage during summer 2015/2016, but workers were not there during our weekend stay.

Thank you for your review. We do appreciate our guests taking the time to reflect on their stay here at Pear Tree.
Yes we do have a new and exciting guest build happening at the moment, but we are taking precautions to ensure minimal impact to our guests. As always I am only too happy to discuss any queries potential guests may have.
The new retreat will be stunning (well I am a tad biased), so I do hope you come back and enjoy a mini break with us again.

A very pleasant stay, very clean and neat, warm welcome by Angela and Bryce and very pretty views from the Studio.
Some construction underway with a new 'Retreat' which will be great for new guests in 2016.

My partner and I spent a weekend at the Pear Tree studio. We arrived late on the Friday, so it wasn't until we woke up on the Saturday morning to spectacular views out the window that we realised how well we had chosen our weekend escape.

The studio is beautifully furnished and the kitchenette well equipped, with Angela providing ample breakfast goodies each morning. The bed was comfortable, I spent the majority of the stay cocooned in the fluffy dressing gown, and my only major regret is not having used the spa bath.

I've recommended Pear Tree to all my friends for a romantic country escape. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.

My husband and I enjoyed our short stay at Pear Tree cottage very much. The cottage was immaculately presented with a well stocked fridge for breakfast. Fresh baked muffins were also supplied by Angela on both days....a lovely welcoming touch. The views are to die for and the garden very pretty. Perhaps an improvement in television reception if possible would be good.

Thank you for the lovely review and for taking the time to share your experience with others.
Thank you also for your feedback regarding tv reception. Currently all my rooms have free to air tv reception ie all Melbourne channels and their country counterparts. We have discussed Foxtel or the like, but the cost overshadows any benefits. As a compromise we offer an array of dvds, which I will look at updating in coming few months.
