Quiet location, well set up kitchen/bathroom, bedrooms, porch on three sides and Hot tub with a view (bit noisy in the night, we had to turn it off) Parking right next to cottage under carport, when we arrived the table was set and a lovely bottle of wine was waiting. Kitchen also has coffeemaker, teabags etc, dishwasher and washing machine come with some tablets, plenty of towels and pillows, sofa pulls out (great for relaxing) BBQ and fire place available but not to be used in bush fire season. The winery and brewery are unfortunately closed, and the cafe is only open friday to sunday, and then only sells pizza so that was a bit disappointing. Good base to visit the twelve apostles via the gourmet route (we loved Timboon distillery and blueberry picking)

Hi, We agree, the location of our Cottage is in a beautiful bushland setting and the Hot Tub is a great way to finish the day. Unfortunately, the noise of the Hot Tub running is not anything we can do about as it requires a pump to operate. I hope it didn't disturb you too much! I'm also glad you found our Cottage was well stocked with the necessary amenities and appliances to enjoy your stay. We pride ourselves on providing high quality linen and towels for our guests to enjoy a 5 star Bush Retreat. In regards to the winery and brewery...they are owned and operated by separate entities and are also regulated by different Covid restrictions. I'm sorry you didn't get to try these facilities. I think all business's are still finding the best way to operate in a CovidSafe environment. Thank you for your review and we hope you come and stay again!

First getaway since COVID restrictions were lifted. Went with friends and what more can I say but thank you. Was one of the most peaceful stays we have ever had. I would stay here again in a heart beat just so I can see the rest of the winery next time. Clean and inviting with great communication.

We were so pleased to host Candy & Will so soon after the Covid-19 restrictions were lifted. I'm so glad they had a beautiful and relaxing time and we would welcome them back at any time for some more rest and relaxation.

Winery and brewery were closed, and this was one of the main reasons we booked. Property is changing hands, but no advice to clients. Some areas were not clean( oven tray was filthy ) and limited amount of firewood available. Do hope the new owners do a better job
