My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary for 3 nights at this beautiful cottage. We had never been to this part of Victoria before and cannot recommend it highly enough! Peta and Laurie (the owners) were very helpful and friendly and always just a phone call away if needed. The cottage is in beautiful surroundings with windows out to the forest just outside of Olinda. Ample breakfast provisions and little touches like chocolates, DVDs etc. I agree with the previous reviewer that the TV reception is awful but there is too much to do or just relax anyway. Cottage is in a private location with a comfortable bed, great spa, and all the amenities you need. It is set down from the main road into Olinda so you can hear a little traffic noise but nothing major. Highly recommend going to walk through Sherbrooke Forest (via Grants Picnic Ground where there is a bird feeding area, wonderful ferns and mountain ash trees and we saw lyrebirds!), taking the complimentary limo transfer to the Sky High Restaurant and going to the beautiful Ricketts Sanctuary and having a Devonshire Tea at the Churinga Cafe. Overall we would highly recommend going to this part of the world and will be there again in the near future!
