Perfect 5 day break

  • 5 of 5

We found the two bedroom Shady Brook Cottage utterly enchanting and SO enjoyed our holiday there. Harrietville is beautiful, but this little piece of the village was the best bit of all: the gardens, the tranquility, the privacy and the comfort were second to none.

Best of both worlds

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time over our 4 night stay, the 2 bedroom cottage with spa was very cosy and well equipped. It was lovely in the morning to wake up nestled in among the trees and sit out on the deck to watch the birds come to feed. As the night became a little chilly it was great to have the wood fire lit.The gardens are just beautiful, we loved exploring them as well as all the hidden walking tracks and the Ovens River that runs along the property.

We would come back to stay again, as it is a hard place to leave. The Alpine region is an all year round destination, winter to spring and there is lots to see and do.
