Rated 5 out of 5 by from This delightful little cottage is absolutely perfect for a quiet getaway. Well equipped and comfortably furnished, it is located at a quiet end of Harrietville, just at the beginning of the climb to Mt Hotham. The verandah is perfect to sit out on, and enclosed, which was brilliant for the puppies, who loved their holiday too!! Would highly recommend this cottage for those seeking a restful and peaceful holiday.
