This is definitely NOT a terrible place. I really really loved it. The owners were pleasant and hands on and every ready to help with a smile. Why then the poor review? Simple answer, expectations vs reality. Problem One: I booked this lovely place based on the positive reviews from trip advisor and wrote in to check on the available... More

We are a big group of twelve with elderly and young kids. With such a vast age differences, it's really v challenging to meet all sort of unexpected requests and needs. The hosts... More

Great location in a cosy, wood-fire heated cottage. No reception so it is great to switch off and enjoy the walks, wombat spotting, farm animal feeding, spa baths and watching one of the many DVDs available to borrow (free!). The well stocked kitchenette (cooking oil, salt and pepper, pots and pans, etc), surprise breakfast basket and complimentary on-site grown hazelnuts... More

We all had the most wonderful trip away with our two young boys. They enjoyed helping feed the farm animals and adventuring around the property whilst keeping in touch with us via walkie talkies kindly supplied by the lovely management. We were even given some lovely homemade cake for afternoon tea. As we were away for my birthday (during May)... More

What an enchanting hidden retreat. Two friends wanting to escape Grand Prix week end Melbourne, and this was the perfect solution. The welcome we received was warm and genuine and the cottage "Mountain View" lived up to its name with gorgeous views across the valley. Birdsong, cute farm animals and a delicious basket of goodies for our breakfast the next... More

Second time we've been back, very clean and private location, lovely scenic drive up there, incredible views. Service and hospitality was fantastic. The breakfast basket included lovely, fresh farm produce and was delicious. It was perfect for a romantic and relaxing getaway. We'd definitely be coming back.

We stayed at Mt. View cottage at Hill 'n' Dale-- we've been back for a month now but cannot forget the blissful three days that we spent there (we wish we'd stayed longer).

Can't rave enough about the place. Had a great restful weekend made all the more special by the fantastic service we received from Wendy and Albert.
