“Gorgeous setting but very dusty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We stayed in the lakeside bungalow which was gorgeous and so private. The cottage sits right on the edge of a small lake with lily pads and bulrushes with a vineyard out the back. It was lovely being so away from everything. There were also some cute alpacas that roamed the farm. We really enjoyed ourselves staying here but there was a looooooot of dust everywhere. My husband and I couldn't stop sneezing and coughing. The room was filled with antiques lining the shelves which were quaint, but no one had dusted the place in years!

I loved the serenity of the country setting and the lake but I don't think I would go back.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

My wife and I stayed at Barney Creek Vineyard Cottages after viewing a local weekend travel show and were pleasantly surprised. Amongst the vineyards that produce good wines, there are three cottages; Lakeview, Garden and Hill Station, of which the latter was what we chose. It is an old railway station building brought to its former glory and well presented for accommodating a couple in the style of the Orient Express. Set away from the other cottages on a hill with great views over the rural landscape, it was tranquil with all the amenities you need including a full kitchen, fireplace and two person spa.

However there were a few little things that were overlooked that would have us giving a higher rating. On arriving we were greeted but not really welcomed. Maybe the owners had more pressing matters? The Hill Station looked a little tired and needs a good airing out as everything was slightly dusty which meant that we had to wash what we used and the lounge and bedding were in a similar state. Some of the spa nozzles were impossible to get working. Also the water pump operated on and off throughout the night.

That said, we still enjoyed our stay immensely. There are good walks around the creeks and hills and bring a game or two for a fun evening in front of the fire as you sample the wines.
