Relaxing & homely accommodation

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Mary was very helpful & friendly. We stayed in the garden retreat which was so comfortable & clean. The celebration hamper was delicious, we would come back in the future.

Nice retreat in the hills

Lovely little retreat. It had everything we needed and they accommodated for our gluten free request. Only negatives were the lovely wooden floor could have been cleaner and the mattresses a bit worn with a noticeable hollow - not great for those of us with a bit of a back problem.

Home in the Garden of Eden

Pros: privacy & natural gardens, fresh fruit juice
Cons: shower over bath made a wet mess in the bathroom. Setup is awkward but next time we'd know to use the shower in the laundry instead.
Location: Plenty to do as very close to all attractions around Olinda.
Exceeded our expectations. The Cottage is very spacious and homely. There is a big spa that we unfortunately didn't even get around to use. We felt like the only people on the mountain - it's so private. A Lyerbird sighting from the balcony in the morning was another highlight. Really enjoyed out stay including exploring the gardens. The breakfast was also sensational. Take some mozzie coils though as getting bitten can spoil the best of ambiance.

Just what we needed

The accomodation is spot on, good ambience, surroundings to die for and all the finishing touches to make our stay something out of the ordinary. We'll be back.

Lovely retreat situated in stunning gardens

Pros: It is very tastefully decorated. The breakfast supplies were plentiful and we were provided with fantastic cheeses. It is a very secluded location.
Location: Next to Cloudehill nursery and guests at Woolrich can walk around Cloudehill for free. The walk at the bottom of the road (the Hamer arboretum )
this is a perfect place to hibernate during the winter. The interior is very tastefully appointed with a large spa bath. The outlook onto the trees is very calming. Sitting in front of the fire (with an endless supply of wood) whilst appreciating the wonderful outlook is very restorative.

Superb accommodation in beautiful gardens

Pros: Relaxing by an open fire in the luxurious surroundings
Cons: It is perfect just as it is
Location: Very central to all the tourist spots near Olinda and Sassafras
As soon as we arrived we felt relaxed. Superb accommodation in a very peaceful setting. The breakfast provisions were substantial. The ambience of the facilities provided a restful escape from our normal activities especially with the open fire. The property would be well worth a visit at any time of year but I could image it is stunning in Spring when all the trees are in leaf or flowering. Location is ideal for day trips around the Dandenong ranges. One night is not enough
