Beautiful deck and views! So peaceful and relaxing. We had an amazing time here after our wedding. The fresh produce was also great. We’re already planning on coming back for our anniversary :)

Incredible views, quiet serenity. Great place to unwind for a few days and nice little touches of luxury packed in there too with the spa with a view.

Ahhh, thank you for such a lovely review! We are so happy you loved everything we had prepared for your stay. The spa and the view are sensational and we love that you had a great time in the cabins and the Yarra Valley. You had the best of both worlds while you stayed, warm days out on the balcony and wandering the valley and cooler nights by the fire and enjoying the spa. We are ecstatic that you had a wonderful experience on the ridge. We can't wait to welcome you again!

Secluded, great views.

Pros: Views, seclusion, comfort.
Lovely secluded spot, close enough to Healesville township to nick in for dinner. Coonara fire was lovely, even with torrential downpours outside. Great views. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your highly recommended review. The cabins are warm and well equiped for retreating into. It was unfortunate that the weekend you stayed the entire Melbourne and range area was battered by a cold front and quite wild weather. Nonetheless it was great to hear you were warm and could observe the wild weather from you cabin with a supply of local produce and wines from the local area. We can’t wait to welcome you again.

The view, the tranquillity and THE VIEW!!!

Pros: Location, view and the cabin
Cons: Some cobwebs on the ceiling could be removed!
Location: Approx 20mins drive to Healesville and the ranges. Great food in Healesville and lots of sights to see!
Fantastic cabin on the edge of the hill. Fantastic views over farmland and the ranges. Quiet and secluded, lots of privacy. Lots of windows to make sure you can enjoy the view where-ever you are in the cabin!

Thank you for your very kind review. We take pride in our clean facilities and have taken note of your comment regarding the cobwebs. Being so close to the bush, some cobwebs can appear very quickly, so thank you.
