Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Grey Gardens. It had everything we needed. Cooking utensils, pots and pans, glassware, crockery and cutlery and general grocery items were provided. The herb and vege gardens were able to provide us with some extra salad goodies. Watching the kangaroos bound through the property at dusk was quite amazing. We will definitely be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grey Gardens is a beautifully presented and ideal getaway, at any time of year. It has something for everyone regardless of age and interest, including the best tree swing for kids. The historic area is equally delightful offering local produce, antiques and great walks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We spent a relaxing weekend at Grey Gardens with another couple. It had everything needed to make you feel at home. We loved sitting by the fire listening to some old jazz records and having breakfast out on the veranda. The neighbourhood is lovely and quiet and Castlemaine is just a few minutes away by car. We will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely house with all the mod cons, in a quiet area but close to Castlemaine. Nothing better than relaxing in front of the wood heater and watching kangaroos and rabbits in the adjacent paddock. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a really great property and we had a very relaxing time. We stayed 3 days here with another couple. I liked the fact that each bedroom had its own bathroom. The decor is lovely and the couch and chairs really comfortable. We enjoyed playing the old records. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious. And it is in a very quiet location but still close to the action of Castlemaine and surrounds. Recommended.
