Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Cottage We took our daughters to Sage Cottage for Easter and could not have enjoyed our stay more. The cottage was clean, cosy, welcoming and well set out. Glenda was delightful, and even left a bag of Easter eggs on Sunday morning! She encouraged us to stew quinces from the garden (delicious!), the location was superb & promoted quality family time. Great place for children, our daughters loved it as much as we did. I would highly recommend Sage Cottage to anyone. We all wished we could have stayed longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A wonderful escape! A true haven in the bush, with everything you could possibly need for a self-catered weekend away - generous breakfast supplies, warm when it's cold, quiet and surprisingly private

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean - quiet - relaxing We had a great 3 days at Sage Cottage. The cottage was clean, well stocked and quiet. Loved the sound of birds in the morning. Enjoyed our breakfasts on the back verandah watching the rosellas. Very convenient to Castlemaine, Bendigo, etc.
