“Autum at the Birches”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

28 April 2013 A most extraordinary place with the host Ken making the difference with all those small touches that make a perfect host. It was more like staying with a close friend. Walking around with the animals and a freindly goat as a guide made for a most relaxing time

It was just perfect

Nice quite and private spot in Tawonga south, not far from beautiful town of Mt Beauty.
Not exactly a chalet, as you would imagine in the Swiss alps, but a cosy older fashioned cottage.
Disappointed there was no bathrobe provided and that the path leading from parking spot was not lit at night, quite hazardous up gravel steps.

Dear Margo, we are sorry to hear that you didnt perhaps enjoy your time here as much as you may have. In regard to the path and lighting, There are very bright spotlights that luminate the whole region from the carpark right up to the chalets door. With the switch being on the right, inside the front door. We have the steps in light gravel as when its winter, possibly wet, frosty & icy it is then nearly impossible to slip. Thank you for alerting us to the fact that you had no bath robe within. They are normally hanging in the sliding wardrobe. I shall ensure in the future that this is always checked. Thank you for taking the time to write. All our very best, Kent & Sevasti.

I read all the reviews before booking, gasping that "they were too good to be true" - they are not! This is truly a special place. The excellent service began before we arrived, a mix- up over bookings was ironed out within minutes of my booking on line with a phone call from Kent and complimentary champagne and chocolates for " any inconvenience". The location is stunning ,the welcome warm and individual, the accommodation as gorgeous as the photos, tips on where to eat locally invaluable,one regret, we only had one night........wish it could have been longer! We will return Kent, if only for the promised goat's cheese! Many thanks

There are many bike trails and destinations all close by with a brisk rush as you ride down from here to Mount Beauty. The road down is steep but well sealed and fun. One evening we actually called the owners who came down to town to pick us and our bikes up as we were just all pedalled out after going up and down to Bright. Breakfasts, the best. The spa is big enough for two and the roomy chalet well done. Try Flour and Water for a pasta feed before a big ride.

Room Tip: We arnt going to say because when we come back we want our one

This was a very quiet find where we spent some time this February. We were met and welcomed and shown to our chalet which was so nice and cool, as it was a very hot day and the drive up took us half a day from Melbourne. We stopped along the way and did a detour via Bright to collect one of our bikes. The chalet suited us perfectly and the view is such a drawcard here. Our breakfasts were delicious and we both developed a taste for the Russian breakfast. The smoked salmon with caviar and eggs poached in Vodka is a must try. They use Molton Brown & French toiletries which l thought was unusual as most places like this only have one variety. We had Molton Brown body washes and soaps with loafers and L'Occitane spa cubes and refresher towells. Which were replaced when our chalet was refreshed after the second night. There are quite a few dining options in Mt Beauty and of the three we tried in the town we liked Flour and Water the best. We did a number of walks over the days we spent here with the mountain creek tree fern walk my favourite. This we did one three mornings and we saw a platapus twice in that creek.One of the highlights was a nights fine dining here where we booked the diningroom. We chose a package that included everything we wanted and we were very happy. But we did end up blowing our budget a little. I chose a bottle of Krug, my fiancee chose a bottle of Haut Brion and then we overdid it with a Domaine RomaneeConti ( Thanks Mum & Dad )

Room Tip: Ask for a spa with the views

Thank you for making our honeymoon so special! The week went by just too quickly. Everything here is so special, the fresh air, views and privacy. Our breakfasts were first class and the service simply wonderful. The energy here is invigorating. We look forward to returning in autumn to see all the trees in thier colors and to again just soak in the spa looking at the mountains. Thank you both from Chun and Lisa.

Room Tip: Book the dinner service and try the horse rides.

Recently visited here for our summer holiday to Mount Beauty. The villa was everything it is said to be. Fully self contained and was ideal for our family visit to this town. We were impressed with the standard of accommodation and the view. In fact we spent most evenings during the visit on the lawn under the trees. This property is well place being only minutes down the hill to the shopping centre, pool and golf course. This is an interesting little golf course with plenty of wildlife, being mostly kangaroos. The town has a popular pool and the river below many swiming locations. The villa overall has the feeling of your own mountain retreat. We look forward to retuning.

Room Tip: The villa is ideal for familys.
