Overview

About the property

With the attractions and restaurants of Daylesford and Hepburn spa country only five minutes away, Hollow Log Estate is the ideal getaway for busy people and their dogs.

Two-time winner of Holidaying with Dogs' prestigious Five Paw Award, Hollow Log Estate offers a choice of two superb, self-contained cottages set on 23 acres overlooking the peaceful Wombat State Forest (also see listing for Hollow Log Cottage).

The Stoney is a charming, studio-style cottage made of Castlemaine stone and slate. It sleeps up to two. Recommended in The Age, Best Weekends Away magazine, the Stoney is perfect for a romantic getaway, or an escape for people wanting to relax with their pets. Being a studio, the space is only suitable for one dog or two small dogs.

The Stoney is surrounded by beautiful established gardens. Enjoy the abundant wildlife from your front verandah, magnificent sunsets over the forest, or take one of the many forest walks from your doorstep. The Stoney comes with all the trimmings for the perfect, relaxing break. A generous breakfast hamper is provided for your first morning and you'll receive a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolate.

The Stoney offers:

- Queen bed with quality linen and electric blanket, towels provided

- Reverse cycle heating/air-conditioning

- Ned Kelly wood fire

- Flat screen television, radio/CD player with iPod dock

- A selection of DVDs, games and books

- Fridge, convection microwave and hotplates

- Plunger coffee and assorted teas

Hollow Log Estate is truly dog-friendly. Dogs are welcome across the property and inside the cottages. There's a fully fenced, half-acre dog play area, dams to swim in and a large outdoor dog bath with hot water. We appreciate that your dog is part of the family.

Perfect getaway. Pups loved it too.

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautifully maintained. We stayed in The Stoney and were the only ones for the three nights we were there. Lisa and Ali were very accommodating and the two areas for the dogs were perfect. There were a lot of little touches that the girls have put in place that makes the stay hard to fault.

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage, and the owners supplied breakfast and a bottle of wine. Delightful to wake up to chirping birds and kangaroos out in the fields. Breathtaking views across to Wombat Forest. Roco the greyhound had the best holiday of his life! We can't wait to return.

True "dog friendly" stay

  • 4 of 5

Loved the space and ambiance. Was a little smaller than I expected it to be: it really is a studio/cottage so something to keep in mind if you have a bigger dog. But it was gorgeous none the less and with excellent facilities and lovely hosts. Would have been nice to have a small fences in yard straight off the small balcony for the dog - he just desperately wanted to be outside the whole time but it was too cold for us!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I note your point regarding a potential fence around the Stoney but we decided against this idea. As there are kangaroos and other wildlife in the area, we find that it's safest for dogs to be supervised when outside. Our two-bedroom Cottage has an elevated, fenced balcony for dogs that want to be outside.

Dreamy little Stoney

  • 5 of 5

Great spot for a you and the dogo. Heaps of good walking tracks and the cottage it self couldn't have been better. everything you need. We didn't need to go out, just cooked there and enjoyed the fire with a classic dvd. Ali Also very accommodating, Even got to feed the sheep.
