This wonderful old place in the bush is full of old fashioned character. Nice to walk around the property and visit the horses and the see the scenery. Light up the fireplace and enjoy the complimentary port! It is highly recommended to let the lovely host Jennifer cook you a meal as you are a long way from any restaurants....

We stayed in the King Suite which was spacious and extremely comfortable. The sunroom with its view over the beautiful gardens was wonderful. The kitchen facilities were great and there was always the option to have meals cooked for you...even a special menu for Australia Day. The host, Jenifa was so friendly and made contact with us before our visit...

We are revisiting this wonderful accommodation and loved the beautiful welcome from Jenifa and the dogs. We enjoyed the peaceful location and the amazing setup of the cabin. We had everything we needed and was privileged enough to use the washing machine and clothes line.

After a day walking around Mount Field, it brought a smile to our faces when we arrived at this beautiful B&B. The garden was in full flower and looked amazing. We had a kitchen, dinning room, sitting room, two bedrooms and large bathroom. We had dinner in and cooked breakfast in the morning. Both were very good. There was wine...

Received a warm welcome and the evening meal was amazing, served in our private sun room overlooking the lovely garden. The room and grounds were awesome. We enjoyed a lovely walk around the grounds after dinner. We really enjoyed our brief stay and felt totally relaxed. We didn't want to leave.
