Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful We loved our stay here, would love to go back sometime. Peaceful, relaxing and friendly. Great for our little family of 3 but you could stay with a whole bunch of kids and they would enjoy. Far away enough for privacy but close enough to drive out for things to do and see eg. Echuca and Bendigo. Thanks for the wine too!
