Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not good value for money Good property but over priced for what it's offering. The size of the cottage is too small for $550 per night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! This is such a special place. We stayed in Cupid's cottage & fell in love with it. A quaint little cottage, surrounded by a vineyard, lake & cute ducks. A very peaceful & intimate setting. We had such a beautiful stay here. A getaway we won't forget. Thanks Tina & Evan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stonewell Cottages was a wonderful experience and the memory of waking up to a view of the lake with a mist hanging over it, a hot air balloon gently gliding over it, the ducks waking up and floating on the lake, will remain with me forever. One of the most beautiful scenes I have seen anywhere in the world and I have travelled to over 45 countries. The area around the cottages with the dam and ducks and other wildlife was absolutely breathtaking especially in the morning and evening. The cottage was spotless and extremely clean, cosy and comfortable. Many provisions and treats were left (paid $AU690 for 2 nights 1st May 2011). The king bed is superbly comfortable and all bed linen & pillows very clean. The spa bath a wonderful extra treat. Meticulous attention to detail. I would recommend the Stonewell Cottages highly. I would have liked to stay longer than 2 nights.
