A fascinating experience. Great meal and comfortable night's accommodation. The 'ghost tour' wasn't bad, though I was disappointed that there were no ghosts. I was really hoping for something paranormal; but the showmanship got in the way. Great group of interesting fellow guests - all of us eccentric in our own way.

We were keen to visit this place after hearing good things about it. The house is located a bit out of the way so we were a bit disappointed to find that they didn't have eftpos to pay for entry. After scrounging through our loose change we just had enough to pay for our family but we didn't have enough... More

It was my second visit with my eldest daughter aged now 13 years, her friend, my youngest daughter and her friend. The younger two girls were very excited to visit Monte Cristo. When we entered, the man at the front desk wasn't very informative who was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ryan, the owners. I asked if he had... More

The owners need to seriously work on their meet and greet. The crabby old woman who answered the door mumbled a few instructions and left us. For the $12 entry we expected some more information. Yes you can buy a booklet for an extra $5, but we thought our tour would be more informative and guided. The homestead, once a... More

Beautiful house with a chilling history. As soon as you walk in you can definitely feel the 1800's decadence that comes with the decor. As you walk around you re live the Victorian era all over again. A fascinating place

Sooooo much knowledge & passion from Lawrence & Sophia which helped to make the night so special due to the atmosphere & the setting as well as the company. We arrived & checked out the grounds during the day so we could see if there was a difference during the night. We were lucky enough to have dinner there that... More
