Rated 5 out of 5 by from Merrimeet is a delightful property with a lovely garden backing onto the river and 5 minutes walk to town. The 2 bedroom apartment was of a high standard and the owners were a pleasure to deal with. The apartment is accessed by stairs and would not suit a family with young children or frail adults. However, this was made clear prior to booking. I have already recommended it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The weekend away at Merrimeet Cottages was just what we needed: Waking up to the sound of the nearby Ovens river, sitting in front of the cosy fire place at night or just enjoying a glass of excellent red on the balcony with the afternoon sun. The cottage has a lovely setting, is well presented and everything is provided for. The host Philip has been very welcoming and friendly. We will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a very enjoyable time at Meerimeet. The cottage was well appointed and presented and the hosts very accomodating. The position is great, with the walking track along the river accessible through the gardens and a lovely quiet setting. No traffic noise here! Great complimentary bickies too. Highly recommended.
