My husband and another couple stayed 2 nights at the B&B in Autumn. It was very clean and the view were amazing but not worth $225 a night. The continental breakfast was small Kellogs boxes (that were out of use by date) with a loaf of bread, a selection of spreads and fruit. Couches were tinny and not a place... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the one bedroom cottages with our 2 kids. John and Anne were lovely and didn't charge us for having the kids stay (which so many places do). The cottage was lovely, the gardens are stunning and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend.

The property/gardens were stunning, very well kept by John and Anne (the hosts), both John and Anne were very friendly and helpful. The one bedroom cottage we stayed in was so cosy, warm, spotlessly clean and... More

John and Anne are wonderful hosts in this lovely mountain retreat. The garden is beautiful, with comfortable chalets with private space. We had a lovely 4 days and would have loved to stay longer... Thanks, will be back to see another season...

We stayed here over new year and once again had a quiet, very relaxing break. We first came here in January 2007 and try to get back each year for a short break. The cottages have been well maintained and are still like new. The gardens are just beautiful and a credit to Ann and John. Harrietville is a small... More

When u imagine staying in the high country, beautiful country cottage set in beautiful gardens and great facilities - this is what you get! I wish all accommodation was this good! We had a fantastic time but the accommodation was the key!

Looking for a quiet few days in the North East Victorian highlands we contacted John and Anne Atkins at Shady Brook Cottages. We stayed there for three days and were not disappointed. Our comfortable and spacious 2 bedroom cottage was excellent in every way. Set on 14 acres of exquisite gardens in the Ovens Valley, the scenery and birdlife gave... More
