Rated 2 out of 5 by from PRETTY BUT POKEY INSIDE Far too small/pokey for 2 single adults. No room to move. Very cold, heater takes about 2 hrs to take the chill off. No electric blankets. Summer probably okay as outdoor area very lovely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Getaway Cabin We stayed one night at the Sparkling Springs Cabin and it was a very relaxing weekend. The property is very close to the town center and directly opposite Creswick Callabeen Lake. It was a very peaceful setting. The property is large but the cabin itself is small but clean. There is a beautiful outdoor area where you can just relax and watch the world go by. It is also dog friendly. We took our little pug and she had a ball! The property is well secured and we did not have to worry about our dog escaping. The owners were very clear and prompt with their correspondence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellently presented-could not fault Originally my mother was to stay overnight after a wedding-she in the double bed and myself in the lower bunk bed. Unfortunately, my mother was hospitalised. I used the lower bunk bed. Having only stayed overnight, I was very satisfied with the presentation and the cleanliness of the cottage I would most definitely return if the opportunity presents itself in the future.
