We spent 4 nights at South Cathedral Farm between Christmas and New Year 2012 - and we think it is one of the top places we've stayed anywhere in Australia. The location and views are fantastic, the accommodation is top quality and as a bonus, they welcome pets! On arrival there is a little bag of doggie treats and at the back of the cottages is a small fenced enclosure so your dogs can have outside access without needing to worry about them setting off on their own adventures! Megan leaves everything you need for your breakfast in the cottage itself, so you can prep your own breakfast when you want it, and they can also prepare an evening meal as well for you, although we didn't try this (but I am sure it would be excellent). There is even a selection of local wines for you to try ready chilled in a cooler in the cottage itself.
There's lots to see and do in the area - you're just a couple of Kms from Cathedral Range State Park with fantastic walks and bird watching, plus wineries, Lake Eildon and great food all within easy reach.
The farm is in the area badly affected by the 2009 Black Saturday fires and the two cottages were completely rebuilt by Marty after the fires (Marty and Megan only saved their own place by deciding to stay and fight the fires).
