“Serene location and welcoming hosts!”
Reviewed May 1, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at the Burrow for eight nights for our honeymoon. Port and cheese were just some of the delights that awaited us when we arrived - Sue knew exactly what we needed to help us ease into post-wedding relaxation!

It was very easy to come and go as we pleased - our hosts were full of recommendations for places to visit and things to do in the area. Staying at the Burrow allowed us to visit many wineries throughout the Yarra Valley at our own pace.

Breakfast was fully catered for but self-managed, affording us the opportunity to enjoy very lazy mornings. We would often eat on the porch, overlooking the billabong and joined by the plethora of birdlife that call it their home. The natural beauty of their property and the surrounding region, which we explored through many walks and hikes, is remarkable!

Comfy chairs and warm blankets were most helpful for the brisk mornings and chilly nights!

Sue and Bill clearly have the gift of hospitality. Would visit again for the cheese bread alone!

It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay for your honeymoon ~ considering the hundreds of places you could have chosen, we are honoured that you chose The Burrow, and that you really made the most of your special start to married life. Two people extremely well suited ! Thank you for being such lovely guests and if ever there were a role model for 'young marrieds', it has to be you two. Our very best wishes for all the years to come ~ and maybe a return visit too. Cheers, Sue & Bill and the Airedales

Thank you so much for your warm and generous comments, and for sharing the things that you enjoyed so much. It was a real pleasure to spend time with you in the morning, chatting about mutual interests ~ and your intense interest in how Wombat Bend was developed was heart-warming. It is very evident that you have a strong love and appreciation of nature. We hope that you can return for a longer stay sometime ~ and enjoy more sunsets from the billabong. Warmest regards, Sue & Bill (and the good doggies)

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your time at The Burrow. It was especially nice to know that as an artist, you found relaxation and inspiration combining to create beautiful paintings while you were here. We'd love to welcome you again soon. Bring the paintbrushes too. Cheers, Sue & Bill

“Timeless Beauty- With Great Food and Compamy!”
Reviewed March 29, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Sue and Bill have such a lovely spread, that they just have to share it. My best friend from the USA came for a holiday and The Burrow was the first place I thought of taking her.

Such a clean, enchanting, private place, yet within reach of so,e of the world's best wineries, cider and beer breweries....even a super-delish chocolatier just down the road.

The proprietors left a lovely basket of fresh breakfast and snack items, and also had spot-on recommendations for dinner and shopping.
Their love of wildlife is evident and we saw lots of ducks, moorhens, kangaroos, possums, and parrots (always important to overseas visitors).

We are so touched and delighted that you wanted to bring your great friend to stay, and even happier that you both found The Burrow to provide all that you wanted, in addition to enabling your exploration of the Yarra Valley. It will be lovely to see you again, and of course the Airedales are adding vigorous tail wags at the thought. cheers, Sue & Bill

“Great B&B”
Reviewed March 22, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Great base for exploring the Yarra Valley. I love that you get your own living quarters, completely separate to the main house, with a fully stocked kitchen to make breakfast how and when you please. Heaps of food provided including locally sourced snacks. We highly recommend a dip in the billabong on a hot day!

Thank you so much for taking the time to send a review of your recent stay in The Burrow. It was lovely to have you stay again, that first swim in the billabong must have stayed in your memory ! We find it very satisfying that our guests love their privacy and can come and go at will ~ that makes for a real break away for you, I am sure. We do hope to see you again when you need another little Time Out from the city. cheers, Sue & Bill
