Very clean. Very modern. Impressive TV. Good comms from kind owner. Comfy bed. Unfortunately you could tell someone had smoked in cabin #3 at some stage. No coffee machine. Car park was a mudbath. Would stay again!

Beautiful location, loved waking up to the horses in the morning. Our 2 year old was very excited when she was able to ride the pony “stella” The cabin was very clean still looked and smelt brand new :-). The only negative we did find was that unless you had the air conditioning on all day, the cabin would get very hot, even with the blinds closed and fans on. Amazing experience, thankyou

Fantastic Site
Loved the place, looked a bit rough on the outside but that was because the timber was not sealed or oiled. Inside was really good. The outside view is a bit bare at present but trees have been planted and it will become a private non-town street accommodation. Would stay there again if we need to go to Geelong or beyond again

Previous guests ruined it for us
Unfortunately the people before us were heavy smokers (despite being a non smoking room) the air freshener only masked the smell and it was still very difficult to be comfortable. Not the fault of the staff but very disappointing.
