“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

What a wonderful experience! The cabins are charming and the breakfast was fantastic! The host provided a wonderful and warm welcome - carrying bags into the room, having a pre lit log fire burning, telephoning ahead to wineries that we were visiting to ensure special treatment and unbelievable Customer service. If this is an example of Australian Bed + Breakfast standards, I am proud to be Australian!....Thanks Andrew

Room Tip: Stuarts Cabins is private and has a wonderful view of kangaroos in the morning!

We had a wonderful time at Braeside. We were in Mt Macedon for a wedding and our beautiful cabin made the weekend so special. The whole property felt welcoming, peaceful and relaxing. Our host was friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be recommending Braeside to anyone heading to the Macedon Ranges in the future.

We enjoyed staying at Denise cottage very much. The beds are comfy and the breakfast was generous and delicious with local produce. The surrounding was beautiful. My son loved to collect fresh eggs from the chicken house in the morning. We would love to visit the place again next time! Nan

We were given a voucher as a birthday present so had no idea what to expect...but this was well beyond our expectations...where do I begin? Andrew (the owner) was extremely helpful and knowledgable about the area, the cabin was extremely clean and very well presented, the make your own brekky was delicious and all from local suppliers and there wasn't one thing that wasn't thought of...private, close to Melbourne and very relaxing, we could only highly recommend staying here!

Want a short break from your daily hectic life ? Braeside Mt Macedon B&B was the answer we needed. Not very far from CBD Melbourne, country B&B was what we were looking for. Stayed at Denis Cottage. Quaint, cosy and very clean. Comfortable beds with crisp linen, good TV & kitchen appliances made our stay very relaxing and comfortable. Good wholesome breakfast with home made jam and bread. Andrew our host, very friendly and informative, made us feel at home and made sure we were well informed of what we can see, do and eat in the area. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Braeside Mt Macedon and surely we will visit again.

Wanted something close to the city but with a country vibe, which I was certainly able to achieve at Braeside up in the Macedonia Ranges.
The property is situated on a massive acreage, with plenty of birds and animals to see.
3 cottages to choose from, all a safe distance from one another, so don't worry about a privacy or noise.
The 'cook your own breakfast' was fun and you get ample foods to create with.
Andrew was a great host and really makes you feel relaxed and welcomed.
Recommend staying here!
