My husband and I have stayed at Whistle- Stopover in the Spa Suite on multiple occasions over a number of years and once in the cottage with our 2 young adults last year. We stayed again recently in the Spa Suite for 3 nights. We have kept returning as each time Whistle- Stopover has worked its relaxing magic of forest charm, high levels of comfort and the warm hospitality of hosts Lesley and Peter.
We were first attracted by its prime location on the Puffing Billy train line and the literally 1 minute walk to Fielder Station. Puffing Billy travels past the property between 2-4 times a day which is a big bonus for the family train buff. The spa suite is decorated with romantic trimmings, but not to excess, has high quality linen, a very comfortable bed, great spa bath and is exceptionally clean. Owner Lesley is keen to ensure you are comfortable and will assist with helpful advice such as recommendations for local restaurants etc. The spa suite is cool in summer and the outside area very pleasant for just sitting and reading, or soaking up views of the forest, ferns and local birdlife (make sure you wear insect repellent though as the mossies are persistent). The cottage is well set up for families and our two young adults thoroughly enjoyed it when we stayed last year.
Cockatoo is only 2 mins away by car but has only a few basic shops. Emerald is a 10 minute drive away with better facilities such as restaurants, post office, pharmacy, library, Lakeside park etc.
We thoroughly recommend Whistle- Stopover as a delightful place to relax and to feel like you are miles away from the stress of Melbourne.
