Frogsong cottages are a brand new holiday accommodation, 2km from Goughs Bay and Lake Eildon, in the foothills of the High Country.

Guests enjoy comfortable winter and summer holidays in owner built local strawbale and earthen render cottages in a 5-acre native setting.

Come and enjoy the Lake, Rivers and Mountains at their tranquil best.

Frogsong cottages provide an eco-sustainable Landcare haven from which to explore Lake Eildon & Mount Buller scenery, national parks and activities. Winter sports abound: Cross country, downhill skiing and snowboarding at Mt Buller or Mt Stirling or bush walking, fishing, horse riding & cycling. The bustling town of Mansfield is only 15 mins away, offering a range of interesting eateries, shopping and markets, and shuttle access to Mount Buller and Stirling, along with snow equipment hire and purchase.

Frogsong cottages are spacious to suit the needs of families or friends (sleeps 4/5 or 2/3 on Queen, Double & single beds). Each cottage is fully self-contained, with kitchenette, cheerful wood burning heaters in the lounge area that looks through north facing french windows onto private decks. As well as the passive solar heating that this provides, solar panels provide hot water and power, while the strawbale walls keep the living spaces insulated against heat and cold.

All linen, towels, tea and plunger coffee is provided with self prepared continental breakfast including a house-made loaf and muffins on Sunday mornings.

An attractive grassed and shaded BBQ area is available for our guests informal use, along with 5 acres of native open grass and bushland for onsite rambling. Or BBQ at Gough Bay's Picnic Point, a gentle ramble around Mountain Bay, Gough's Bay and the swimming spots at local rivers & creeks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great property and excellent host! We were so pleased to find a warm, homely oasis in the middle of the beautiful location which is Mountain Bay. Maggie, the host, was especially accommodating, relaxed and extremely kind. She baked fresh bread for breakfast and then surprised us with Raspberry and Chocolate muffins straight from her oven!! We felt so spoilt and will absolutely return for a longer stay at this great location. Highly recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great accommodation for a relaxing break We had a wonderful stay. The location is quiet and a great base to explore the region. Our hosts were welcoming and did everything to make sure we had a great visit, whilst giving us space and privacy. Highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from definitely not to Stayz standard We were never contacted except to ask for payment and instructions to get there prior to our stay. We had to make contact to seek confirmation as none came. We were not told that there was no communications in that part of Victoria.. Had we been told of these, we still might have gone there but we would have had prior knowledge of conditions at Mountain Bay. There are no sign to direct you to the owners house and the welcome was quite ordinary. Basically more efforts should be made to better communicate with clients. The cottage had only one ceiling fan and in 39 degree heat, the room looked more like a sauna. We left a day early forfeiting any refund as conditions were too harsh for us and our two small dogs.
