We had a wonderful weekend at Wombat Hills Cottages. The cottage was everything we hoped for on our weekend escape. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting slow down and just enjoy a leisurely pace. Views are wonderful, wildlife enchanting, open fire creates a wonderful, relaxing atmosphere.

We stayed here over the weekend and a great time, Noel and Helen were very accommodating and the cottage was clean and well kept. After a full day skiing, it was a treat to come back to a warm fire and a comfy couch. The cottages are only 30 minutes from Mt Buller and are a great alternative to paying... More

You were blessed with the best weather and snow conditions of the season so far. The real benefit of staying off mountain at Wombat Hills Cottages is being able to keep an eye on Mt Buller from the warmth of your cottage and going skiing when the weather & snow conditions suit you. There's always plenty of other things to... More

This stone cottage is nothing short of beautiful. We stayed in the Snowgum cottage for one night, simply because we were not ready to end our anniversary weekend and go back to the business of Melbourne. Since our accommodation we were initially at was booked out the day we were due to return home, we searched around for other cottages... More

This was a lovely place to stay. Beautiful setting, very peaceful, lots of wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies and parrots. The cottage is warm and cosy and fitted out with everything we needed. Delicious cake to welcome us, and hosts Norm and Helen are friendly and helpful. Would recommend to friends.

We stayed at Snowgum cottage over the weekend of May 8 & 9. There are several aspects of our experience that we believed should be put in writing. 1. We phoned an hour out of our arrival at the cottage on your advice so that the fire could be lit prior to arrival. We did not get a response to... More

We were devastated when we read about what a terrible time you had staying at Wombat Hills Cottages. We are so sorry that you fire wasn't lit for your arrival. Normally it would be but we had to make an urgent trip to Melbourne and were unable to return until early evening, when we were able to replay your message.... More

We first went to Wombat Hills Cottages over ten years ago taking our family. It nestles in the hills yet is easy to find. We have returned at least three times and the enjoyment is none the less. This time we stayed 6 nights (Jan 26th to Feb 1st 2015) in Fern Cottage for a real rest. The cottage was... More

We had a weekend at Wombat Cottages and found it such a relaxing and beautiful spot. We are a family of 5 and there was everything in the cottages that we needed. The afternoon tea when we arrived was lovely, the beds comfy, the cottage spotless and the host and hostesses, Helen, Norm and Gemma the dog were so friendly... More

Wombat Hill cottages are set high into the hillside with a lovely view of the surrounding mountains. Out hosts Norm and Helen and Gemma the dog were charming hosts, there if you needed them but otherwise unobtrusive. The three of us stayed in the largest of the three cottages which was equipped with everything we needed. Norm had kindly lit... More

My partner and I just returned from a two night stay in the Fern Cottage at Wombat Hills. What a place! Set in idyllic, picturesque surroundings overlooking the mountains and Mt Buller, my partner chose the perfect surprise location for a weekend away. Close enough to town, that going out for dinner is no drama, however we chose to eat... More

Absolutely loved our stay at Fern Cottage. We were welcomed by kangaroos, a lovely warm room, pre-prepared food and magnificent panoramic views of green rolling hills and nature at its finest. No noise, a million stars at night, fantastic spa, crackling fire & more than generous supplies of tea/coffee/wine at our fingertips.... Perfect birthday. Thanks again Helen, Norm & Gemma... More
