This cottage was delicious in every way: The bright and cosy decor was very clean, ample good quality food was left for our breakfast and Angela's baking is amazing. Couldn't wait for the next day to see what flavour muffins would be produced! The view from our cottage was lovely and plenty of DVDs and CDs were left for our... More

The Retreat at Pear Tree Cottage is just superb. The views across the Gippsland Country side are spectacular and Angela's delicious, daily baked goods make afternoon tea on the patio just perfect.. watching the wild deer canter across the paddocks was brilliant. The accommodation is modern and spacious, immaculately set out and stylish in design. I just can't wait to... More

Although there was an electric blanket but there wasn't enough heat in the main bedroom when we closed the door because the AC/heather/fireplace were outside. But overall we enjoyed the house, the home made granola was excellent and the amenities was all well prepared!
