What guests say about Tarrangower Country House:

"Our family of 4 had a most wonderful relaxing experience at Tarrangower Country House in early Spring 2015. The house is beautifully situated on top of a hill with a broad view to distant hills and the horizon. Surrounded by bushland filled with native animals and not another house or car in sight, it was a perfect setting for a country house. Yet, it is only 1.5 hrs by car from Melbourne and 15 mins from Daylesford and Castlemaine, 30 mins from Bendigo. A perfect place to base oneself to explore the wonderful region, or, as we did on most days, merely laze around in the house.

The house is most tastefully decorated by Sally-Ann. It is filled with all the comforts and convenience that one could imagine whether your interests are in cooking (fully stocked kitchen, BBQ, food processor, coffee machine etc), relaxing (spa, pool, sun lounges etc), star glazing (a large telescope), reading (plenty of magazines and books) and playing (numerous games for the kids) Indeed a "retreat" as Sally-Ann described it to be in every sense of the word. Thank you Sally-Anne for a most wonderful experience."

"Tarrangower is the most idyllic of locations, so much so I call it Heaven House!! Even before Sally Ann works her magic, you will feel completely relaxed just walking through the doors of this unique and wonderful house!"

"It is furnished to such a high standard and the views from all rooms are stunning! It is quite a common occurrence to see kangaroo families, not to mention a myriad assortment of wildlife, going about their daily business!!!"

"As this beautiful house is surrounded by acres and acres of woodland you are completely removed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and transported into a haven of quiet, peace and calm!"

"Sitting on the balcony, with a full blown moon staring back at me, is something I shall never forget!"

"We had another wonderful stay at beautiful Tarrangower. Yesterday was one of those beautiful Winter days. We took advantage of the sunshine and sat on the balcony for most of the day.Thank you once again for the use of your exquisite property."

"This place was utterly amazing, the serenity, the peace, the views and the most magnificent, fully furnished house to match! I highly recommend this place to anyone, any time of the year, for either a relaxing get away or somewhere to party up, have a bbq, a few drinks and relax in the pool!
definitely will be back!"

"Tranquility personified at Tarrangower. Great bush walks of surrounding area and big kangaroos hopping within metres of you sweeten the deal. Head back to the house, crank the open fire, light some candles and cook like a pro in the open space kitchen. Enjoy the intimacy while you devour your meal and gaze out to the countryside with its panoramic views. Take dessert and your glass of wine out to the balcony and watch the sun lower itself down. Pure joy. Stay for longer than just a weekend to really reap all the benefits."

"Absolutely beautiful accommodation!! a lot of attention to detail went into this cottage. Comfortable for 6 adults, well equipped kitchen. Tranquil, secluded and the wood fire heater went into good use. Thank you Sally-Ann for catering to our needs. Definitely would visit again, maybe in summer."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tranquil Loved my stay here with my family. A splendid retreat with a sensational 270 view of the landscape. The nature of the place is full of wild life from jumping Kangaroos to hopping rabbits. Longs walks to the water holes always a great way to get away from city life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a special place to stay. We stayed 2 nights and had a very relaxing time even though there was an amazing thunder and lightening display early in the morning. It is a little isolated and about 20 minutes drive to the nearest shops but this is the beauty of it as we saw kangaroo grazing in the field nearby and rabbits in the garden.. The birdlife was wonderful too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ! It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with you. For me it is always refreshing when excellent customer service is provided. You have always been responsive and you emails and communication have always come across as friendly and helpful.  Thank you so much for this; it is truly appreciated. We loved sitting on the balcony and admiring the views and we loved the decor inside -  It all just felt so homely and comfortable and the house really is a beautiful and peaceful space. For me it felt in between rustic and beachy and I loved the combination. Thank you once again and I wish you every success with your holiday accommodation business.  I will certainly let my friends and family know of your property if ever they are looking for this type of accommodation for their vacation. Kindest regards, Cathy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a fantastic time! - secluded yet close to amenities in Daylesford and Castlemaine. The house was beautifully presented and the kitchen had everything a cook would need. The children loved the pool and the kangaroos and we even managed to catch a yabbie in the dam - released to live another day... Would highly recommend to others and plan to return.Rebecca
