We (unfortunately) only stayed one night while in Dunkeld and we would've loved to have stayed longer. We booked here for the fireplace and full kitchen. Our cottage had 2 rooms both of the same size and with double beds. The bathroom is large and has plenty of room. The living area is cozy and the added fireplace warms the... More

We booked the cottage but enjoyed the surroundings and the general feel in the town that we decided to book another night. Our hosts George and Carolyn were very welcoming and we first met George as he was leaving our cottage after lighting the fireplace when we arrived. What a welcoming touch as it was cold and overcast outside. Carolyn... More

Being in the accommodation industry we are very judgemental! On this occasion all we can do is bestow high praise and congratulate George and Carlolyn on their beautiful property. Their eye for detail is second to none. Cottages are very well equipped, comfortable, cosy and importantly, spotless. George has got fire lighting down to a fine art! Bikes were available... More

Stayed here for two nights recently - a good option in Dunkeld. There are about 12 cottages on site, all separated from one another and built in a log cabin style. They are set up for self catering which would be great if you were staying longer. Both nights we were there the owner started up the fire for us... More

Second time I have stayed here and the experience has not faltered. Both Carolyn and George are as helpful as always and nothing is too much trouble. (George builds and excellent open fire) Will be staying here again next year as it's the best place to stay in the grampians.

What a GEM we had a 2 bedroom cottage which was the best we have ever had in our travels, each one separated from each other so very cosy & everything you needed was supplied, it was home from home. A lovely wood fire which was supplied with kilding & red gum wood at your door each day kept us... More

Our second stay, 5 years on, and we again had a peaceful, pleasant 4 night stay in a 2 bedroom cabin. Sufficient space inside for our family of 4. Comfortable, restful sleep each night. The kids loved the chickens following them about outside, collecting the eggs & feeding them the food scraps. There was a playground in the far corner... More

Great location at southern end of Grampians range. Very peaceful location. One of the best-appointed cottages we've stayed in. Great fire with firewood at the doorstep; free WiFi; kitchen appliances that worked; kitchen knives that actually cut things... a home away from home, and a great base to explore the Grampians region from. We'll very likely be back.

We had a wonderful stay at Southern Grampians Cottages. Our two bedroom cottage was very cosy and comfortable. Everything needed was supplied and there was plenty of hot water, a lovely wood fire, which George lit for us and showed us how to light it ourselves and keep it going properly, as well as split system heating/airconditioning. Wi-fi worked perfectly... More

First off, my stay could not have been better. I wanted to try the Royal Mail Hotel for dinner, but I didn't want to spend the extreme amount they wanted for a room there. So instead I opted for this cottage park. Excellent decision! The cottages are private (each one is separated from the others). The furnishing are extremely comfortable,... More
