Chris was a lovely host, we felt right at home upon arrival (especially our fur baby!). Super cute cottage, close to town and Chris arranged dinner for us at Taste restaurant which was fabulous. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We’ll be back.

The fact you can have your fur baby with you and nothing is an issue with having them there.

The title says it all, dog treats left on the table for four legged friends, easy care flooring inside and plenty of room outside for the animals. Charming host and everything provided that you could require

Great Stay for You and Your Dog!

Beautiful place to stay with your dog. Chandelier suite roomy and very comfortable. Have stayed in the Garden Suite which although smaller, is also very comfortable. Each suite has its own secure doggy garden. Delicious afternoon tea ( for you and your dog) provided on arrival. Yummy breakfasts cooked to perfection. Nothing too much trouble. Walking distance to Rutherglen township. Hosts knowledgeable about the area and can guide you on wineries and restaurants where dogs are welcomed. Highly recommended!

A perfect location close to the main of Rutherglen

Pros: Our hosts, its quaintness, homeliness, cosiness and comfort and proximity to so many places of interest.
Cons: We have nothing to say!
Location: The main street has many quaint shops and places to eat delicious food
My son and I spent a wonderful two days and nights at Must Love Dogs and look forward to returning. Such a quaint and homely Bed & Breakfast. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and with afternoon tea, a home-made chocolate muffin, tea and coffee making facilities.. It was clean, spacious and warm with comfortable good quality beds, plenty of warm bedding, good sized bathroom with extras, old-fashioned bath and ceiling heater. Such luxury!!A good quality heater which kept us very warm throughout. It is delightfully furnished to make one feel truly at home. There's a wonderful enclosed garden ( did not have my dog with us this time but she would love it!!). A home-cooked breakfast was provided, the ingredients were purchased upon request. Breakfast was a family affair with dogs in tow, a cosy pooch on your lap and a musical background. We were given useful information about Rutherglen and its surrounds eg. where to visit,where to eat, wineries etc., Wine tours were on offer too.The staff were so willing to accommodate our every needs. we were so appreciative. We felt we had made new friends.
