We booked a 2 bedroom cottage at Yering Gorge for 3 nights with a party of 5 and very much enjoyed our experience. Yering Gorge Cottages is set in peaceful, beautiful and natural surroundings that really took us away from the bustle of Melbourne.
The Cottage itself is spacious and well-equipped although not necessarily with state-of-the-art branded sound systems or kitchen equipment like in other "luxury accomodations" perhaps. We enjoyed a bbq each evening on our patio, and lit the fireplace with the wood provided each morning, central heating was sufficient for colder mornings as well. Our children had a wonderful time each day kangaroo-spotting, feeding the horses, bird watching and simply throwing a frisbee on the lawn in front of our cottage. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast basket generous, and fresh bread was delivered to our doorstep each morning with the newspaper. The owner/ manager Ross was most friendly and helpful, and we would wave at him in the mornings as he delivered the bread and papers to each cottage. There was a lot of privacy as well, despite the cottages being spaced within sight of one another....the neighbors were quiet and we seldom crossed paths. On the practical side, there was a supermarket within 15 minutes, easy access to the vineyards and their restaurants, and a very useful (and free) laundry room. The sunrise was superb from our cottage, and we could see hot air balloons rising in the distance some mornings. A photographer's delight.
One improvement we would perhaps like would be to have heating in the bathrooms!
