We stayed in the Hartz Cottage. The location is good, plenty of access to the mountain and good fishing spots. However, the advertising is mis-leading. Written up as 'romantic escape' but it doesn't tell you the cottage is joined to a family size cabin so for all 3 nights we had kids running around, slamming of drawers as people made dinner (the kitchen backs onto the bed) and guest walking around the grassed area which looks right into the cottage. The bed is probably 20 years old and almost crippled us. I suggest the owner spend a night there before charging another guest to stay.

Beautiful location - lovely scenery out the window. After spending a couple of cold days hiking at cradle mountain the electric blankets and heating was wonderful. Not sure if the heater would be enough in winter but worked ok for us on a low temperature day. Clean accommodation and great having your own carport.

The room was adequate but looking a bit tired. However, it was clean and had all of the essentials.
