“Amazing getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

I was searching all around the Internet and was extremely lucky to find this place. I planned this as a Getaway with my girlfriend, and we stayed in the Verandah View Cottage, and it was an amazing experience from arriving to leaving. The manager was great, and we were given a whole heap of fresh muffins, jams, bread, milk and everything was there that we needed. The spa was to die for, the place was extremely clean, and it was one of the most relaxing experiences that I have ever had. I can't believe someone would write a bad review about this place, because I found it to be unforgettable.

Room Tip: If you want to spend a long time in the big spa, go for the Verandah View, if not, then go for anoth...

The manager was very accommodating and did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable.
We arrived to a warm Lodge, wood fire set up ready to light, fresh fruit on the table, fresh bread and cereal in the cupboard for breakfast.
Plenty of room, comfy beds, clean bathrooms, great view of the city lights at night from the balcony.
I will defiantly be staying there again!
Cheers,
Chris

I wanted to take my girlfriend somewhere different and special for a night together as a surprise and came across the Holly Lodge. I chose the Verandah View cottage. When she entered the room her expectations were exceeded by the layout, picturesque location and view. The spa on the verandah combined with the breath taking view was as romantic as it gets. The room showed that great pride and maintenance was taken by the owners. It was very clean, nicely decorated and simple at the same time. The owners of the venue were polite, friendly and helpful. We would definitely reccommend this to couples wanting a romantic and peaceful time away. It was a night to remember and will soon be going back!

Room Tip: Verandah View cottage has 2 floors and outdoor spa.

We had a great stay as visitors from Canada. Had to navigate up a scary backroad, but this was our own fault for relying on GPS rather than reading an old-fashioned map. If house is approached from front, it is a reasonable drive, although challenging to find. Clean, welcoming, and fabulous views of the valley from the back deck. About 20 minutes to wine country, which was the intent of our stay, but peaceful serene evenings made the remote location worth the extra distance. If your goal is the high mountain country of the Dandelongs, then this is a great place. Recommended.

My husband and I spent a weekend in the verandah view cottage, and what a fantastic weekend it was. The view from the spa on the deck was spectular. The room was so clean and had all facilities needed for a perfect stay. Before our arrival we were contacted by the management of the facility with all instructions to access facility, and had no issues in entering facility. The manager arranged for us to have a limo pick up and taken to one of the local restaurants which was the icing on the cake to end our last night at the venue. We were called when we arrived to see if everything was ok, and when we left. The manager was very pleasant and our stay was peaceful, quite and romantic just what we wanted. We would definately go back there, its a great getaway from the City. Thanks for a wonderful weekend.

We stayed one night in the verandah view cottage. It was a perfect night!
The room was so lovely and spacious that it made it feel so much bigger.
The continental breakfast provided was more than I was expecting!
The best point was the amazing view from one of our three private balconies in our spa!
This was a lovely night for my boyfriend and I and we feel as though we really got our money's worth! Highly recommended!!

We had a shocker of an experience the week before and although the pictures looked great on the net were quite nervous heading to Holly Lodge. When we got there we were met by the owner (cant remember his name) and he took us inside. The moment he opened the door the worries were gone. You could see the pride that they have in this place. Everything was perfect. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a romantic weekend away

Room Tip: We stayed in the honeymoon cottage and it was great. Spa was a little awkward and overflowed if you...
