What an enchanting hidden retreat. Two friends wanting to escape Grand Prix week end Melbourne, and this was the perfect solution. The welcome we received was warm and genuine and the cottage "Mountain View" lived up to its name with gorgeous views across the valley. Birdsong, cute farm animals and a delicious basket of goodies for our breakfast the next... More

Second time we've been back, very clean and private location, lovely scenic drive up there, incredible views. Service and hospitality was fantastic. The breakfast basket included lovely, fresh farm produce and was delicious. It was perfect for a romantic and relaxing getaway. We'd definitely be coming back.

We stayed at Mt. View cottage at Hill 'n' Dale-- we've been back for a month now but cannot forget the blissful three days that we spent there (we wish we'd stayed longer). Driving toward the property for the first time, we had no clue what was in store, and boy, was it a treat! The cottage is literally nestled... More

Can't rave enough about the place. Had a great restful weekend made all the more special by the fantastic service we received from Wendy and Albert. The cottage was a great escape and will definitely be back again and utilise the fire and spa bath in winter. The beds were comfy and the place was cosy and as well as... More

Had a fantastic stay at the property over the weekend. Place was very clean and everything thing from the bed to the fireplace was very well done to make the stay very comfortable. Staff ( Mel and Pete) were very friendly and took us for free tour around the farm. Kids loved the buggy ride up the hill and fed... More

A wonderful and relaxing weekend getaway. Gorgeous property nestled amongst rainforest. We travelled in January 2012 and definately can't wait to go back! They have very cozy self contained cabins with a fire place and spa bath. We were welcomed with a gorgeous breakfast basket filled with freshly baked bread. They also offer a free DVD library and farm animal... More

As soon as we arrived we felt relaxed and welcomed. The new young owners, Eddy and Lara were very friendly and knew the area well so could advise places to see and activities. We especially enjoyed the wonderful Chandon Winery and the new Chocolaterie. Healesville has good cafes and restaurants, but the cabin was fully self-contained so we could enjoy... More

Great stay in Ferny Glade cottage. Staff were very welcoming and the breakfast hamper had that special home-made feel to it with the freshly baked bread and eggs straight from the hen house. Loved the serenity of the place, yet it was perfectly placed to explore the sites around the Yarra Valley.
