“Always enjoy staying at Candlelight Cottages”
Reviewed November 10, 2009

We have stayed at Candlelight Cottages 4 times now - and we will be back again.
Very family friendly, our five year old loved exploring the "secret garden" at the front of the cottage - and the spa is always a winner with him! The beds are extremely comfortable, everything is there that you need - full size fridge with great breakfast provisions, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer etc. This trip is becoming a bit of a family tradition now - we always have brunch in Olinda, just a five min walk away from Candlelight Cottage and Cottage in the Forest , then a drive down the hill to Belgrave to catch Puffing Billy. We normally end up at Sassafras for an afternoon snack! Then another easy walk down to one of the restaurants close by. Thank you again to Peta and Laurie for continuing to operate such a great place to stay and relax!

We stayed in the 'Cottage in the Forrest'.

This place is unlike anything i've seen before. The cottage itself is nicely tucked away from the Monash Avenue and is tightly wrapped up in the lush forrest.

Inside is a full fridge, stocked with some delicious breakfast ingredients( ham, bacon, eggs, mushrooms, etc.) and a very healthy supply of wines and bubbly. One bottle of Champagne was on the house, included as a welcome gift.

The bathroom is HUGE in an elegant design, and houses a spa that could probably accommodate 6 people. There is also a shower.

Both the bathroom and the bedroom have spectacular views of the forrest, and is deffinately the best place to enjoy a weekend or holiday in Melbourne.

I can not recommend the Candlelight Cottage 'Cottage in the Forrest' any higher. I will return at the EARLIEST opportunity.
