This house is a must stay.
The house and bedrooms are fabulous with great views from the verandah ( both morning and evening ). Equipped with everything you need.
Although we were later than expected, Steve the owner was waiting patiently to welcome us. Set in a beautiful part of the dandenongs.There was also a welcome pack containing food and toiletries. Thank you Steve.

Room Tip: All rooms in this house are fabulous.

We stayed at the Holly Lodge in the Verandah View room for our wedding and I have to say our stay was outstanding. There was plenty of room for our 4 bridesmaids and hair and makeup artists to get ready. We really liked how the room was two levels as it meant our baby could sleep downstairs without interruption. We loved the spa on the upper deck. It was the perfect temperature. The view was amazing. There was a big and beautiful garden. Steven the owner was very accommodating and helpful. There are two other rooms as well that could be used by the same family. The doors can be unlocked to allow one big family to use this house. We will definitely be back in the near future.

Room Tip: The Verandah view has an outdoor spa with an amazing view!!

stayed in the verandah views cottage and must I say it was great !!! very clean and spacious. The manager was very accommodating and easily contactable. He had the heating on by the time we arrived as we checked in late and all the lights were on for us. Excellent romantic night away, will definitely go again for a weekend next time !!

I was searching all around the Internet and was extremely lucky to find this place. I planned this as a Getaway with my girlfriend, and we stayed in the Verandah View Cottage, and it was an amazing experience from arriving to leaving. The manager was great, and we were given a whole heap of fresh muffins, jams, bread, milk and everything was there that we needed. The spa was to die for, the place was extremely clean, and it was one of the most relaxing experiences that I have ever had. I can't believe someone would write a bad review about this place, because I found it to be unforgettable.

Room Tip: If you want to spend a long time in the big spa, go for the Verandah View, if not, then go for anoth...

The manager was very accommodating and did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable.
We arrived to a warm Lodge, wood fire set up ready to light, fresh fruit on the table, fresh bread and cereal in the cupboard for breakfast.
Plenty of room, comfy beds, clean bathrooms, great view of the city lights at night from the balcony.
I will defiantly be staying there again!
Cheers,
Chris

I wanted to take my girlfriend somewhere different and special for a night together as a surprise and came across the Holly Lodge. I chose the Verandah View cottage. When she entered the room her expectations were exceeded by the layout, picturesque location and view. The spa on the verandah combined with the breath taking view was as romantic as it gets. The room showed that great pride and maintenance was taken by the owners. It was very clean, nicely decorated and simple at the same time. The owners of the venue were polite, friendly and helpful. We would definitely reccommend this to couples wanting a romantic and peaceful time away. It was a night to remember and will soon be going back!

Room Tip: Verandah View cottage has 2 floors and outdoor spa.

We had a great stay as visitors from Canada. Had to navigate up a scary backroad, but this was our own fault for relying on GPS rather than reading an old-fashioned map. If house is approached from front, it is a reasonable drive, although challenging to find. Clean, welcoming, and fabulous views of the valley from the back deck. About 20 minutes to wine country, which was the intent of our stay, but peaceful serene evenings made the remote location worth the extra distance. If your goal is the high mountain country of the Dandelongs, then this is a great place. Recommended.
