Beautiful scenery, rustic cottages, very friendly staff and wildlife at your doorstep. The cottages aren't exactly 'luxury', but they are certainly very charming. Only a 5 minute drive down the road to Halls Gap.

Amazing place to stay! Just far enough away from Halls Gap's touristy 'bustle', to feel totally remote and at peace with such amazing serenity! Looking out the cottage window one morning, I honestly thought Ned Kelly could perhaps appear! That's the real unique vibe you get when you stay there at the cottages! The fabulous managers Corrie and Aiden, really... More

Highly recommended place to stay, so close to halls gap zoo that from front verandah you can see the giraffes. We love the uniqueness of the cottage and the story behind them. We will definitely stay here again.

You will love the original cottages with wildlife at your doorstep ! Kangaroos bevel leave this place no matter what time of a day it is. Clouds of parrots will add to exotic character. Have visitors from overseas? Bring them here - they will be impressed. Kitchen in the cottage and Bbq area well equipped. Unwind yourself on serenity walk!

Staff were great, friendly & very helpful leading up, the preparation of and after our wedding. The accommodation was great, very clean & plenty of room for the whole family to stay. Great for the kids to run around & get to see the kangaroo's up close.

Many thanks for your lovely review. Yours was our first wedding since coming in, and I have to confess I was a little nervous that everything would go smoothly. And all the more grateful when it did! Your family were all fantastic, and I'm pleased to say we have had no complaints from any of the neighbours! Hope everything is... More

Nice location and private. Our children had a wonderful time. BBQ area was very well maintained and in a lovely setting. Room furnishings were old fashioned and could be updated. The kitchen appliances and cooking utensils were very basic and need to be replaced. The fridge was very wobbly and part of the front of the oven kept falling off.... More

Thank you for your review. Your stay fell on our first night in the business, and when we realised just how much we had to learn! I agree that the decor is due for a revamp, and there are certain things in the cottages that will need to be replaced. While we are working our way through this, these things... More

Nice relaxed family time away with the wildlife :-) cottages are clean and maintained. Friendly staff and good management. Would love to stay longer then a few days but it can be a little boring for kids. As for couples its quite and romantic. Fireplaces top it off on a cool night.

Thank you for your review, I'm really glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. The fireplaces here are definitely one of the cottages' more popular features, and the wildlife also, naturally! We are still in our first month in the property, so it heartening to read positive reviews. Hope to see you again soon! Thanks again, Grampians Pioneer Cottages More

Enjoyed Robert's hospitality in pioneer cottage that he built from recycled material on 100 acres. The bedroom under the eaves was cosy with stunning views of the Grampians. The serenity and meditation walk added to the great visit. Highly recommended !!!
