Nice location, beautiful garden and spacious accomodation. A real turnoff is the smelly bedlinnen and blankets. Too many people have slept in them and they have not been properly and regularly washed. It's really time they are being replaced with fresh and new ones. The Airconditioning is only in the living room making the bedroom warm in hot weather. Didn't...

Like everyone else I absolutely loved Appletree Cottage and can’t praise it too highly. A word of caution though for people with mobility issues (like my wife and I). This is a two storey cottage with a steep staircase. Even though it has a balustrade you need to take care. The toilet is downstairs and the bedrooms are upstairs -...

It was a pleasure to have you both stay with us recently. I am so glad that you were able to take the short walk through the apple orchard and to the top of the hill, isn't it a glorious view. You were brave to tackle the big hill across the lake, it is very steep. Each of our other...

We had 3 fabulous nights at the Nest. Attention to detail was amazing. On arrival low lights on, music playing, fruit basket on table and spa ready to go. The area outside was so peaceful and the daily show from the birds and resident koala very entertaining. We ventured out a few times to local wineries, Oakbank, Balhannah, and Handorf,...

Hi Meredith, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are so glad that you appreciated the attention to detail as you arrived at The Nest.

Appletree Cottage was the perfect place to get away from it all. Generous breakfast supplies and lovely fruit basket along with some treats from our daughter kept us so well fed we only needed to send out for a pizza on the last night. We loved rowing on the lake, walking to the top of the hill for the magnificent...

As we drove through the separate gateway into a perfectly manicured and very private park all of our own, the smiles spread across our faces. When we entered the cottage and looked around, they got even bigger. Lavender cottage is comfortable and homely, filled with exquisite touches of decoration and obvious thoughtfulness. Someone must have had a happy time choosing...

Thoughtful service and romantic atmosphere at the apple cottage made our special moment - proposal unforgetable! Highly recommended, one of the feature of Adelaide hills to be proud of. It would be even more beautiful in the months of springs and autumn: September, March April... Friendly professional staff gave us feeling of being home.

Steve was so incredibly friendly, from that very first phone call you started to relax. The Cottage was an ideal Aussie country vision, inside, and out. Location was close to everything the Adelaide Hills are renowned for, but amazingly quiet, peaceful, and totally relaxing. In the high paced world, this place transported you to somewhere else entirely.The full moon reflected...
