“We didnt want to leave”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

To quote a line from a famous Australian movie " How's the serenity". We stayed in the Fern Cottage for two nights a few weeks ago and were disappointed when we had to leave. The cottage has a sense of seclusion, nestled amongst the spectacular rainforest garden. After a day out it was very relaxing to come back to the cottage and enjoy a book and a wine on the balcony while listening to the abundant birdlife. We were greeted by Louise when when arrived and she spent considerable time with us ensuring we had a good understanding of the highlights and attractions of Montville (and surrounds). We took her advice on a couple of the local restaurants and weren't disappointed.

We have already recommended Montville Grove to several of our friends. It exceeded our expectations and we cant wait to make a return visit.

Louise and the staff at Montville Grove are so lovely, efficient and welcoming. We booked this accommodation at the lake cottage 12months before our wedding and stayed there on our wedding night. We got to our cottage at 12am the night of our wedding and walked in to a beautiful warm fire place, basket of goodies( to keep our wedding munches at bay) and a beautiful big spa bath. It was the best ending to a wonderful day. We can't wait to come back in 12 months to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Thanks!!

Our second stay in the Lake Cottage was just as perfect as our trip here last year. With the beautiful view of the lake from the spa bath, and the cosy fireplace, this cottage is perfect for a relaxing getaway. Hosts Louise and Trevor have thought of everything and have a wealth of knowledge about all there is to see, do and eat in Montville.

Joanne, thanks firstly for returning to stay at Montville Grove cottages for a second visit. It means a lot to us when guests return, considering how many accommodation options there are in our area. And thanks also for taking the time to post such a kind review. We hope to see you again next year for a bit of "me time". Louise and Trevor

We stayed in the Lake cottage for our honeymoon for a week in December 2011. The service was incredible and it made our stay very special. Louise was always helpful in giving us ideas for restaurants to visit for dinner and great at giving directions too.The breakfast hamper was very generous. The wine and drinks in the fridge was a lovely touch. We loved the fireplace and as it was a rainy week we took advantage of the DVD collections too. I would highly recommend the Lake cottage as it had a stunning view from the spa.

We've even put together our own restaurant guide! We're glad the rain didn't dampen your spirits. That's why we keep the cottages stocked with good DVDs and magazines. Hope to see you again.

My husband and I have just returned from our second stay at the Lake Cottage. It was every bit as wonderful as the first. Louise is so warm and welcoming and the cottage is beautiful, private and has everything you could possible want or need. The breakfast basket is lovely and the verandah is the perfect spot to enjoy it whilst listening to the beautiful birds in the morning. The view across the lake is gorgeous too. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back again.

Dear Jennifer, thanks for your lovely comments. I love the view from Lake Cottage too, even after seeing it hundreds of times, and often linger on the deck watching the birds when I'm supposed to be setting up the cottages. Louise

We stayed in the Lake Cottage for 2 nights, to celebrate our first year wedding anniversary. Stunning views, great spa and cottage was very secluded. Louise and Trevor were both very helpful making sure everything was perfect for our stay.Louise was extremely helpful and provided us information about nearby walks, cafes, and other must see's in the area.
The breakfast hamper with local food was perfect. Can't wait to go back again.

Room Tip: Lake Cottage has an amazing view

Dear AngeHamer, thanks for choosing our cottages for your anniversary and for taking the time to leave a comment here. Glad you enjoyed the local produce in the breakfast hamper. We love the fact that we have so many local food producers so we're happy to support them and at the same time give you something special that you won't get in the supermarket at home. Hope to see you again for another anniversary. Louise and Trevor
