Thanks Chris and Charles for a fantastic weekend away. It was so lovely to be able to take our pups with us and they certainly loved the extra attention. The breakfast were amazing as well as the two course dinner that you can't fault. I would still love the receipe for those potatoes.
Thanks again and we will certainly be back to visit. Libby, Ryan, Zoe and Barney

Chris and Charles are soo welcoming that you are made to feel as though they are part of your family. Wondeful accommodation - close to the heart of Rutherglen. Clean and very comfortable. The breakfast and optional dinner are incredibly delicious. The home style setting is very comfortable and welcoming off your pets. Plenty of room to explore and the yard is well fenced in. Chris and Charles are also very happy to babby sit when you are out and about exploring Rutherglen. This place is a must! Liv C

Despite being hit by the tail end of the tornadoes which whirled through Rutherglen the night before we arrived and took down their back fence (amongst other damage, eg landing their 100 year old heritage listed maple tree on top of the neighbour's house three doors away), Chris and Charles soldiered on and provided a great experience for us and my dog, even to cooking up a storm of beef pie and vegies at virtually a moment's notice (the bacon and eggs for breakfast weren't half bad either!). Hosts, food and other amenities all excellent. And Jazz (the miniature poodle) is now asking when we're next going to stay!

Room Tip: Although less flamboyant than the Chandelier Suite, go for the smaller suite if you like the feeling...

My husband; Andrew; myself and our dog; Jess; all stayed at Must Love Dogs on Saturday night. We had a lovely, spacious and comfortable set of rooms to ourselves, as well as an enclosed private yard for Jess. Chris and Charles were perfect hosts who went out of their way to ensure we had a fabulous stay, including providing a lovely romantic dinner and a huge breakfast. We would highly recommend this B & B and Rutherglen was a great place to go for a weekend away. Chris provided a list of "dog friendly" wineries who were happy for us to bring Jess in while we did tastings, and who made a big fuss of our "fur-kid". We had a great time.

We had the best time at Must Love Dogs. Chris and Charles are wonderful hosts and have the most wonderful stories. Food is amazing, especially Charles's pancakes! We take are dogs on all our holidays and that's not easy when you are traveling with wolfhounds. It takes very understanding hosts. Charles and Chris made our guys very very welcome and they got to stay in the cottage with us (we did need to remove the beautiful lamps and antiques that were in range of long wagging tails). Rutherglen is a great holiday destination and everywhere we went our hounds were pampered. If you love traveling with your dogs, then you must stay at Must Love Dogs.

Hi Groovers, where to start...we stayed for three nights with Charles and Chris at their little slice of heaven in Rutherglen. We have stayed at many dog friendly B&Bs and found this one to be exceptional. Charlie's cooking and the hospitality offered is fantastic, you feel you are a member of the family. Charles and Chris made us a candle lit dinner in the old kitchen that we will never forget...it made our anniversary so special. The beds are comfortable and the company, two and four legged well above average. I really enjoyed being able to chat to Chris and Charles about our shared adventures.
The local area is a wealth of wineries and you must have a pie at Parkers Pies in the main street and the information centre has a great selection of local produce and wines and they do have eftpos...thank goodness.
Our girl Shikira was so relaxed and safe, we all had a great break and will visit again...we were saddened to leave. Bert and Daphne and SHIKIRA Orr, Cobram.

Room Tip: The smaller suite is good for a short stay but if you stay more than a couple of nights spring for t...

Would love to return......btw our pooches loved it too.
