We have stayed at the beautiful Sage Cottage for a couple of nights. Easy and fast check in. Very friendly and helpful owner, she walked with us to the cottage, showed us around and explained everything we needed to know. Generous breakfast provision for 2 mornings, cereal, jam, butter, croissants, eggs, bread, milk, coffee and tea. The lady said if we run out of anything just come to see her and she'll give us what we need. Cottage itself is very cute and cosy, it's sort of "studio" cottage but generous in size and more than comfortable for 2 people. We loved wood heater - it warms up the whole cottage In no time. There is also a small kitchen with everything you need if you want to cook. The owners keep the whole property very clean and tidy. We loved hundreds of daffodils blooming all around the place...We woke up to the birds song in the morning and fell asleep listening to the frogs in the nearby ponds - what a treat! Cottages are very private and even that we knew we have neighbours we didn't hear or see anybody. We have a lovely lunch at Toolangi Tavern which is a short drive away and have a real country feel and wonderful views. Rockford Winery is worth to visit, they have yummy food and a good drop and it's only about 25 minutes away. Healesville is also just "around the corner", a short drive away and we always love to stop for a coffee and pie at Beechworth Bakery.
If we have to find something to whinge about, it would be a bed mattress - it was too hard for me but only because I have a very sensitive back after the surgery! Kitchen windows need a block out drapes or some sort of blinds - it was very bright with sun rise in the morning and for that reason was hard to sleep in! And one more thing: we were disappointed that there was no shampoo and shower gel available but it wasn't a major issue.
We highly recommend this accommodation, especially if you want peace and quiet.
