The log fire was set, the cottage was spotless and setting relaxes you imediately.Friendly faces keep the grounds looking good and the firewood box topped up.How quickly can you relax when the fire is ago and you nearest neighbour is far enough away that you feel alone on the property.Comfy bed and great decor completes the picture. A great break from our hectic life. Well done George and the team,

The location of these cottages is beautiful, very quite and relaxing. The rooms itself are cosy and modern, and newly furnished. The owners obviously paid great attention to tiny details. You won't miss anything when you stay at this place, they thought about everything you possibly may need during your stay. Well done.

We were glad that we didn't rush to Halls Gap to find a accomodation.

A small cluster of 8 or so cabins in a picturesque setting with child's playground and chickens wandering around. Wooden cabin style so retro/old fashioned feel but absolutely spotlessly clean with new flat screen tv/ new carpets/lovely fireplace/everything you could think of in a self- contained kitchen plus all the little things which more expensive a/c usually offers (robes/ironing board etc). Exceptional value a/c. The owners obviously take great care and pride in their business and it really does show. How refreshing!

Pros
Lovely setting
Clean (amazingly clean)
Inexpensive
Quiet
Lovely little touches
Well maintained and cared for.

Cons
The only thing I can think of is if, like us, you have a toddler with a tendency to run like the wind when you turn your back for a minute, be mindful that property is off a main (ish) road and especially when they are in the playground. Not a problem but you have to keep a close eye on them if your'e in a cabin close to road.

This stay was our third at Southern Grampians Cottages and once again we were impressed and very satisfied by the quality of the accommodation, great value and the excellent and very picturesque location in which this property is situated. Staying in Spring was really beautiful and the Grampians were certainly at their best with the fire regrowth and wildflowers blooming.

A sudden cool and very windy cold front occurred while we stayed at Southern Grampians Cottages. The cottages, with the beautiful open wood fire, in addition to a climate control air-conditioning system made the rustic cottage so cosy!!!!

Many improvement had occurred at this place since our last stay, including the installation of huge plasma TVs, making the already excellent stay (with fully equipped kitchen) even better!

Once again, I highly recommend Southern Grampians Cottages to everyone who is looking for a great short break away from Melbourne or Adelaide or a longer stay to further explore the fantastic Grampians. Dunkeld is a great alternative to staying at Halls Gap when visiting the Grampians as it is away from the tourist masses that populate Halls Gap.

Southern Grampians Cottages cater for a wide range of budgets and both luxurious cottages and more simple yet still very cosy cottages are located on-site.

Once again, we cannot wait to get back to beautiful Dunkeld and Southern
