Description

Mereweather Estate Cottage at Dunkeld, is a part of the Southern Grampians, Victoria, Australia offering a unique country experience.

Our cottage is located on the brow of the hill over looking Mount Sturgeon. It has the most amazing views, where you can look straight up Mt Sturgeon, across to Piccaninny and then Mt Abrupt, with the Wannon River weaving around the river red gums at the base of the mountain, all this only 200 meters from the cottage.

A feature of our cottage is being able to observe all the wildlife that abounds around the cottage, kangaroos, emus, and lots of bird life can be seen from either the deck in front of the cottage or in the warm comfort of the wood heater inside while looking out the full length floor to ceiling windows of both the living area and main bedroom.

You can watch the sun set to the West while the kangaroos and birds come to drink at the waterholes in the river. All this peace and quiet, but with good cafes and coffee only a 10 minute walk away in the main street of Dunkeld, which also offers the fine dining of the Royal Mail Hotel.

Share a little of Dunkeld’s history, the 10 hectares around the cottage have been in the Mereweather family for more than 150 years. You can walk around the brow of the hill, sit on the rocks and watch nature at its best. This is a great place for the artist or photographer.The cottage has a Queen bed in the main bedroom and two singles in the second bedroom, all linen and furniture is good quality.

We do have a no smoking policy within the cottage.

There is plenty of room for children to ride bikes and play ball games around the cottage, a well behaved small dog is welcome, but must not be left unattended as there are sheep in the paddock.

We are well situated as a base for exploring the Grampians National Park, visiting local Waterfalls, or a trip to the Coast only an hour away. There are plenty of great walking trails, both in Dunkeld and in the mountains.

We can also offer you Breakfast baskets, please ask us for details.

Your hosts are Bill and Heather Funk and our son Robert

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect location with stunning views We are still overwhelmed from this very comfortable cottage , located in a beautiful surrounding with stunning views towards the mountains. We spent hours on the terrace just watching landscape and lots of kangaroos. Thank you Heather and Bill for your most friendly hospitality. We enjoyed the lovely and warm atmosphere of your cottage and the offered fresh farm products. Everything was there, which we needed. After 4 days we were really sad that we had to leave. We felt so well at this wonderful place. We recommend this place to all those, who are looking for a tranquil place in a most wonderful area. Nature pure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Location,hospitality, ahhh what a stunning view My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our two days there, despite the gloomy windy weather. That just provides an excuse to definitely visit again! Heather, a most welcoming host, supplied us with fresh herbs, chocolates, minties, lemons and eggs, and even a vase of beautiful roses. So lovely to find, and with the fire going, Mereweather Cottage was toasty warm on arrival. A very well-appointed and clean cottage with a charming country-farm style, that would suit families as well as couples. But really, let's be honest, it is all about being completely overwhelmed by the absolutely stunning views. Be warned you can sit there for hours and look at it. A perfect base for tackling walks to Mt Sturgeon, Picanninny and Mt Abrupt, with so many spring wildflowers to discover, and more picturesque landscapes to soak in. A meal at the Royal Mail in Dunkeld is also a must-do-experience of gastronomical delight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best View In Dunkeld! Very close to the main shops. Clean comfortable accommodation. Enjoyed watching huge herds of kangaroos hopping across the front paddock. Lots of wild birds in the area as well. Heather was very pleasant to deal with. Thanks for the great stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful views We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mereweather. While the weather wasn't particularly accommodating on the weekend we stayed, it didn't really bother us as we were quite happy sitting around the fire and enjoying the views of the mountain and kangaroos. The cottage is well-stocked and very comfortable, and being dog-friendly is a bonus.
