My husband and I stayed at the Mt Evelyn Retreat for a mid-week getaway in December 2012 as we had wedding ceremony to attend to close by.
This is one of the best B&B in the region (This is our third trip to Yarra Valley region, all staying in B&B or boutique hotels). It's presentation is immaculate.
We've enjoyed very much the high tech gadgets such as the Apple TV with a myriad of free movies; TV shows and music; free wireless; iPod/Iphone dock/speaker and the highly recommended Hydrotherapy spa combined with the peace and quiet that just a place surrounded by a natural reserve and wild life could provide.
The bedroom is quite secluded being completely independent from the the house and facing the bush.
Everything was perfect: from the in-room breakfast provisions (which included locally sourced fruits, choice of cereals, orange juice and choice of bread - try the pane de casa loaf) to the trendy and extremely comfortable furniture and furnishings.
The location is excellent: walking distance to the village with cafes and shops and close to the vineyards in the region.
The owners take pride in what they do and it shows. They are extremely professional and yet they were able to give us a homey feeling during our stay. Highly recommended.
