Walking to and from everything helps to slow down the pace and enjoy the bird life along the way. The Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail is only 200 mteres away and is perfect for bike riding or walking. Families can relax knowing that children are well catered to with a port-a-cot for infants, books, toys and videos of all the favourite classics. Playgrounds are within walking distant and feeding the ducks at the river is always a highlight, the ducks are well trained and always looking for a free feed of bread. Warburton is the hidden jewell of the Yarra Valley. Please note we don't have wifi.

Fantastic for bike riders
Very convenient location not far up the hill, a short walk to shops and river. Garage perfect for parking bikes. Brilliant for kids including VHS tapes and DVDs, boardgames and books. Fully equipped kitchen, comfy couches and beds, pleasant garden and nice view. We’ll be back!

Lovely house, lovely location. Would go back again.
Warburton is beautiful: the town itself and the surrounds. From the river flowing through it to the nearby mountains and forest. Spend some time walking along the river; you might see a platypus. Go to CJ's Pizza Cafe: great service! As for the house we stayed in; great location! The balcony out back overlooks the mountains: very peaceful. All in all, a memorable stay. Give it a go.

Beautiful cottage close to the river
We have stayed in this cottage on several occasions and always enjoy the cosy, clean atmosphere close to the river walk and restaurants. Note: It is a small town so they are not always open.

Annie’s Of Warburton
The accommodation is well positioned and is well presented. All of the facilities are extremely clean and tidy. Something to be mindful of is that we’re were charged extra after making the booking as we had our parents staying. We booked the place as a two bedroom for an advertised price as we had our parents travelling with us. Only to find after we booked that we were then charged an additional $170 for the 2 night stay for having more than 1 couple staying. This additional charging was not made clear at the time of booking. It sis omething to be mindful of when booking if there are two couples intending of staying at the house.

Dear Guy, Thank you for your review. I'm pleased you found our property to your liking and suited your needs for the wedding you attended in Warburton. Regarding the cost for the property, it is based on the number of guests staying not the size of the property, and when the booking is made through Trip Advisor this number is selected by the traveller to determine the cost of the booking. (Please check this if you would like to see this in action). For safety reasons I always check how many guests are staying which I did with you back in November 2017. You confirmed 4 adults and 2 infants. Our property sleeps only 4 and at that time I advised you had only booked for a couple and adjusted the booking accordingly. After emailing you to advise this we wrote back and forth about arrangements for the 6 guests staying, you were aware of this cost from November. I charged you only for the 4 adults and not the infants. I am truly sorry if this misunderstanding has clouded your view of Annie's Escape in Warburton. I always operate in a very transparent way and go out of my way to accommodate my guests. I certainly don't wish to deceive any guests about the amount due for their stay. Yours Sincerely, Annie Thomas

Cozy Cottage in Warburton- a great Weekend Escape!
Warburton has so much to offer and at only one and a half hours easy drive from Melbourne it is a great place for that weekend escape. At Annie's you are in walking distance to most of the town's charms- a variety of good eating places, beautiful riverside walks and a fantastic bakery! Annie's cottage is warm, well appointed and welcoming, with views up to Mt Little Joe from the kitchen and dining areas. The living areas and bedrooms are well serviced with split system heating/cooling. So I think it would be great in any season. We went in early winter and although it was freezing outside we were warm and cozy inside! 2 bedrooms- one with Queen size bed and one with twin beds. All linen and towels provided. Kitchen is well set up and has some basic and helpful provisions-eg oil, vinegar, foil and glad wrap. And everything clean and modern! A great weekend escape!

Pefect Little Getaway
Annie's Escape was the perfect little getaway with everything you could possibly need to make your stay feel like a home away from home, right down to the little things. Annie has thought of everything to keep her guests happy and comfortable for couples, friends and families with children. A very clean, quite and comfortable cottage in a perfect location with just a short walk to the beautiful riverside, shops and restaurants. My only regret was that we didn't stay long enough......maybe next time :)

Clean, Comfortable and Convenient
A great family friendly house with every need catered for. From books and magazines to beach towels and bbq tools. Very comfortable home that was very clean and we felt right at home immediately. The location was great. Short walk to the river and into town and quick drive to other locations. Time here was too short but we will hopefully be back in the future!

Great place to leave the rat race behind
We stayed in Warburton over 30 years ago for our first holiday together and thought we'd go back after 25 years married to see if it had changed. The countryside was just as pretty as we remembered and Annie's Escape was the perfect place to have a relaxing break - everything you could need for a lovely mini-escape.
