Lovely house to stay at, everything you need.
Happy you enjoyed your stay and we welcome you back anytime
Great place for an overnight stay after a family gathering in nearby Gembrook. Clean, warm and comfy
Met by our hosts who showed us around the property and made sure all was in working order - the reverse cycle air conditioning and the gas log fire. The latter was a warming and welcoming sight on an unusually cold summer's afternoon.
Garden setting of the cottage, located quite close to Puffing Billy train track is rather idyllic. We will probably return along with other members of the family next year -- all going according to plan that is.
Accurately described in the listing this is the ideal weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of nearby Melbourne and a good base for exploring the nearby Dandenong Ranges and its attractions.
Thankyou Peter for choosing to stay in our Cottage in the hills. It was a pleasure to meet you all and we look forward to welcoming you back anytime.

I can not recommend this property enough. The cottage is beautifully decorated and extremely clean and set in beautiful, peaceful surroundings. All the beds were comfy and there was plenty of room for our family of 8. The cottage is stocked with everything and I mean everything you need from cutlery and kitchenware to books, DVD’s and toys for the children. Unfortunately we were only staying one night but we will definitely be back!
Thanks Kelly for coming to stay in our Cottage with your family. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and even to have a swim in the pool!!!
We look forward to welcoming you back anytime.

The pictures online are deceiving especially in regard to the pool. No we're to go.
The property was clean but I was unhappy with the location as there was nothing to do no cafes near by. The pool was not what it seemed as part of the cottage it was with the main house so no privacy. So over all I wasn't happy and we only stayed the night.
Friendly and Helpful
Property manager was easy to deal with and extremely helpful. A perfect weekend away with the family
Thanks Adam so please your son was able to have a great birthday on Thomas the Tank Engine. Hope
to see you all again one. day

Puffing Billy goes right past the door. You can get on here at Fielder Station and travel up to Gembrook and back.
