Ange went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Amazing view, great facilities and informative local knowledge. Well worth a look at Toorongo Falls. Recommend a walk around the property too. Thank you!

Being appreciated for what I do is "exactly what I need" - so thank you for the kind words.
A wonderful part of my job is seeing people happy and relaxed, and you two were no exception.. particularly when I see you explore the 18 acres we have here. Thank you!

Stayed at their newly built retreat, a very well equipped apartment, with high end kitchen and amenities. This Vista views from the master bedroom was amazing.
Ideal for one or two couples. Ideally located for trips up to Baw Baw and its surrounds. There are plenty of places in the area for foodies to indulge if that's your thing. Breakfast was included, and was sourced locally, it was great finish to our enjoyable stay.

The owners where very hospitable, I will definitely be back.

Pleasantly surprised at my gluten free muffins best I have every had, we had vouchers for breakky and a cheeses platter all from local produce.The place was cozy on arrival and very clean beautiful spa,coonara and a country view really what more can you ask for. Shops and sightseeing all conveniently located.

The hospitality & service from Angela was superb. At our request, Angela prepared a gourmet cheese platter, eye fillet steaks for us to BBQ, accompanied by a beautiful Greek salad. The home made Granola that Angela prepares for the breakfast is the best we have ever experienced... Sensational.

I'm somewhat humbled reading this review. I always strive to offer my guests quality service, so to hear it in the flesh is extremely rewarding. It seems my granola was a huge hit with my guests this weekend - I'll delighted you enjoyed it.
