That was interesting but we were able to take her out into the paddocks with control of course , just wonderful. The cottage was well prepared beautifully cosy and accomodated two couples very well, no snoring heard from either bedroom... More

I wanted a quiet little solo getaway and The Hide was perfect! It was just what I needed. I was welcomed on my arrival and shown everything I needed to know for my stay. Sue and Lisa assured me to give them a shout if I needed anything. The fire place was already going and had warmed the place up... More

We stayed at The Hide @ Mt Franklin for a spring long weekend getaway. We chose The Hide as it is dog friendly and is also set in a nice quiet setting. It’s a short drive to Daylesford, Hepburn Springs and many other local attractions although we just came for the peace and quiet. The house is cosy, comfortable and... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to write your review. It is great that you really enjoyed your stay at The Hide. So many people find it really relaxing and peaceful. Spring is particularly beautiful this year. The grass is green and the blossom is gorgeous. Our wisteria has just burst into bloom and with the lavender beside it... More

Myself, hubby and our beautiful 9 month old German Shepherd had such a fun time at The Hide! Our puppy was mesmerised with the sights and smells of the property & area. Cows, horses, kangaroos, geese, alpacas & the resident doggies! Returning to the cosy house & toasty fire after a gallop around the paddocks or walk up the road... More

Lovely house with a view from the dining/living area of green pastures, grazing cows and a mob of kangaroos. Our toddler had a great time checking out the ducks and chickens. Close to Daylesford but far enough away to kick back and forget about the hustle and bustle. The homebaked sourdough bread and freshly laid eggs for breakfast were the... More

The Hide is the perfect location for a weekend getaway. Perfect if you are a city dweller and want to get away from the hustle and bustle for a few days. It's peaceful and relaxing and will definitely leave you feeling recharged. I went in May and the place was nice and cosy with a fireplace to keep you warm.... More

Loved this quiet, warm hideaway. Hosts were really warm and showed us how to use the cosy wood fire, etc. Really nicely set up. Delicious bread, eggs, butter and jam left for breakfast with coffee and tea. We walked around the property in the afternoon, I ran around nearby dirt roads the next day with the dog and did not...

The Hide is ideal for people who love their dogs and want to spend some quality time with them. You certainly made the most of the great tracks and walks right at our doorstep.

We have returned to The Hide because it is truly a slice of peace and tranquility in the Australian countryside. It's gorgeously equipped -- from the homemade sourdough bread and fresh eggs (which are both the most sensational we've ever tasted) to the comfort of the plush bed linen -- it all feels very luxurious. The day bed with views... More

It was lovely that you decided to celebrate your special birthday by returning to The Hide. There is always something new to discover when you come to this region. With attractions such as the Chocolate Mill, Lavandula and all there is to offer in Daylesford our guests are never bored. So many guests just love to stay put and relax... More
