“Great cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed June 14, 2011

My husband and I just spent 3 nights at Outlook Hill exploring the beautiful Yarra Valley. The cottages are in a good, central location with views out over the valley and are well presented and equipped, including breakfast provisions, an open fire, and a bottle of Outlook Hill wine if you stay 2 or more nights. The only downside is that you need to climb into the spa bath to have a shower, and access may be a bit tricky for anyone unsure on their feet. But overall a lovely cottage and would definitely recommend it for a nice weekend away.

This is my 2nd stay at Outlook Hill and it is just as good as the previous time I stayed there. The rooms are spacious and clean with modern facilities. There is no formal 'check in", you just arrive and your key is waiting for you in the door to your cottage. The views from the balcony of your cottage are breath taking, you can sit on your balcony with a glass of wine and local cheese and take it all in. Basic breakfast provisions are included such as eggs, bacon, mushrooms, cereals, plunger coffee. The 2 resident dogs are very friendly and will stop by for a visit, especially when there is food around. There are a good selection of shops in Healevesille along with wineries and restaurants nearby. My only criticism is that I found the pillows uncomfortable (take your own), I wasn't sure how long the plunger coffee had been there for, it didn't taste very fresh. Besides these couple of little things, this is lovely and peaceful place to stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights, and it is perfect getaway for us from the city. The cottage is simply very comfortable, with a beautiful view overlooking the vineyard. The location of the cottage is very easy accessible and close to most of the wineries around Yarra Valley. We also enjoyed the company of the friendly canine, Dash & Chewey. We definitely looking forward for our next getaway here from the city.

We stayed in one of the three cottages for just one night and paid 200 AUD. The cottage was very nicely decorated with attention to detail. Lots of pillows and blankets and everything felt cosy and homey. The view from the balcony was nice and the surroundings quiet and peaceful. Our daughter loved the owners little black and white dog who came visiting us once in a while. The provided breakfast items were a little poor, but that was maybe because we just stayed one night. Cleanliness was okay, but could have paid a little more attention to detail (the nice, fluffy extra blanket on the bed for example was full of hair).

I cannot say enough about how gorgeous and relaxing the cottages at Oak Hill are. The rooms themselves are simple, but comfortable and the view is just breathtaking. I could have stayed here for a week. There were excellent ingredients left in the pantry and mini-fridge to make a proper breakfast, including farm fresh eggs. The winery is located off the beaten path a bit, but close to several other incredible vineyards we were able to visit, just driving through this country alone was relaxing. The winery and restaurant were not open while we were there (only open on the weekend) so take that into account when booking.

Arriving at the cottage we were met by the owner who gave us a friendly welcome & showed us the workings of the equipment.
The bedroom was large with an adjoining bathroom with spa bath, and living area with balcony overlooking the vineyards and hills, with a spectaular view of the lights at night.
The kitchen area had microwave & fridge containing ample supplies for breakfast the next morning.
The restaurant with excellent food & wine is on the same property - but check re opening hours. There is also a tasting room attached where you can sample some award winning wines.
