A nice house to stay in, the surrounding garden was great for the kids to explore - Tania - February '16

The location of the house was convenient for access to the parks, dredgehole, pubs and river. The gardens were lovely also. - Jantina - January '16

An Alpine Retreat was perfect for us. We were attending the MountainGrass Festival in Harrietville and coming back to this beautiful property was fantastic - clean, comfortable and relaxing Thank you - Fiona - November '15

Lovely, relaxed and convenient place to stay. We enjoyed ourselves very much. - Carol - October '15

We had a great stay at this property - the house was spotless, lots of space and the heating was on when we arrived very important in winter. Emma was super helpful, and was able to give great advice on getting around, where to go skiing with kids, equipment rental and all those small things you need to know when visiting somewhere for the first time. - Aisling - August '15

Year Round Fun

Harrietville is beautiful gem hidden at the end of the Alpine Valleys. This peaceful, charming town offers fresh alpine air, spectacular views and absolute relaxation but there is also plenty of action & excitement to keep the whole family entertained Harrietville offers something for everyone whether you yearn for adventure or an escape from the hustle & bustle of city life. Many events are also hosted in town year round.

Perhaps you could stroll down to the old swimming hole for a dip and a BBQ of fresh fish you've caught. 'Tronoh Lake', just a short stroll from the property has a jetty for fishing & dipping your toes in as well as a pontoon for the adventurous swimmer or you could just find a private spot along the crisp, clear Ovens river.

Make your way back past the ice creamery for a home made ice cream and a play at the park. While your at it check out the historical museum before stopping off at one of the cafes for a fantastic coffee. As the sun sets over the mountains, relax on the balcony of one of two hotels and sip a glass of local wine.

Looking for something a little more adventurous, take the world famous walk to Mt Feathertop. Or maybe one of the more gentle paths?

Cycle the Great Alpine Road or head up to Hotham for some skiing or mountain biking. Fishing, hiking, tubing, 4WDing, if you're only staying for the weekend, you'll be back

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great location but very tired The house was well stocked and spacious, but carpets and decor in desperate need of a cleanup. Ensuite also needed a good clean with bleach. Otherwise, comfortable and beautiful grounds and proximity to centre.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just perfect for our group, to accomodate young and old (and four-legged). The open plan living areas allowed for lots of socialising and the location was wonderfully quiet, Harrietville was just what we needed to slow down and relax.Thank you for making our summer break an absolute delight.
