It smelt beautiful and l couldnt get my pjamas and get my glass of wine quick enough. There was plenty of... More

We had a weekend away for Mum's 60th. Slept 10 adults and 5 kids and 2 extra adults stayed in the cottage which is about 150metres away from the main house. The driveway was a bit difficult to manoeuvre but apart from that our was so great that we found a place that we could all stay together. Phone service... More

My son and I stayed at the lodge recently and it's such a beautiful setting with amazing trees all around you. The lodge has beautiful large windows looking out to the bush and a crackling fire made the stay very warm. This is versatile accommodation and it suited us perfectly as we wanted separate bedrooms - they were both large... More

My new husband and I just got married in the Dandenongs and hired the Lodge to stay in with our bridal party the night before our wedding, splitting the house in two in the morning so the girls and guys were separate - highly recommended for this purpose, there was plenty of privacy and the grounds are just stunning, perfect...

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in the cottage at Fernglen and just loved the way the cottage was in amongst the bush and the biggest trees I think I have ever seen. Alix was a wonderful host and organised a massage for us both in the cottage. To wake in the morning and hear the birds... More

We booked the entire lodge for a wedding and international friend reunion. Alix, the owner, was very accommodating and the venue is beyond awesome. It's the little details that count too and these were not overlooked. Even the kids are catered for, with a trampoline and a good selection of toys and dvd's on site. The adults are of course...

I can't recommend Fernglen highly enough. This is the second time we have stayed here and this time I brought my baby and mother-in-law, who both adored the accommodation and the view. Fernglen is excellently located minutes from Mt.Dandenong, Olinda and Sassafrass. It's also a short drive to Healesville and the Yarra Valley. Even though there are shops and restaurants... More

Absolutely gorgeous! My partner and I spent 1 night in 'The Fern Cottage' and had the most relaxing stay. The little log fire and lush green surrounds made for a perfect romantic night away! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and we will certainly be returning, for a much longer stay next time!
