Beautiful lodge and scenery
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Dec 2020via mobile
Such a beautiful location. Really lovely well maintained gardens and residences. My dad and I stayed in the Windmill Lodge, it was modern but with character, clean and well kept with all amenities. The owner was lovely and completely accommodating. And a really great price for such a lovely location and facilities.

We had a very relaxing stay the day prior to our wedding in Mount Dandenong, and we enjoyed the spa and fireplace. There was plenty of space for the entire family and the rooms were clean and well equipped. Ample breakfast provisions (including bacon, eggs, milk and bread) were provided. It is a beautiful retreat surrounded by trees and ferns.

We spent the weekend here and found the accommodation very much to our liking.
close to the tourist areas and restaurants.
Owner went out of her way to assist us and let us do some laundry.
The spa was great at night with a few wines.
The setting with the tress and ferns is a refreshing break from the city
The Cats and the birds are part of this .

Reviewed 9 February 2020

House was nice and secluded but the owner is next door and randomly shows up to use the laundry without notice. After we asked for privacy the same instance happened the next day. We had a big family with kids and only had access to the laundry for a very short time, after requesting. No sharp knives to cook with, some other regular utensils not available. BBQ is a really just a really small hot plate. Cats and dogs show up from time to time which is okay if you like pets in your house/space. The mowing guy also showed up and started blowing leaves and dust all over our cars, and asked to mow because this can only be done on Fridays’ which was very strange, annoying and loud.

Enjoyed our time at Fernglen with adult family of 9. We booked the lodge which had two well equipped kitchens.

There was plenty of space to relax and each couple had their own bedrooms and comfortable beds, very clean accomodation.

Enjoyed the fireplace and spa. And the
Relaxed country feel amongst nature.

Host was easy to deal with - thanks for having us all!
