Oldie but a goodie

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Newspaper supplied for fire would have been good. Its old but still has its own charm. Heaps of room with loads of beds. Great for large groups

Great Family Gathering Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great time, the house was big and well equiped, with plenty of room for the grandchildren (from 20 months to 11 years old) to play, especially the games room out the back. The grandkids got to see kangaroos, emus, sulphur crested cockies and crimson rosellas up close. If we returned to Halls Gap at a later date, we would not hesitate to stay in the same house.

great for families

  • 4 of 5

perfect location. The property is old but has everything you require. The beds are really comfortable. The games room and bikes were great for the four 13 year old boys we took with us. Great outdoor area and we loved the fire pit.

Excellent House

  • 5 of 5

Great house in good location, just outside of the town. House is a good size, we had 11 adults and it didn't feel cramped at all. Well equipped with just about everything you could need.

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family, including relatives from the UK stayed at The Ripley, we had a range of ages from baby to 60, and the stay was enjoyed by all. There was something for everyone, and we were amazed at the attention to detail by the owners. So much was included and supplied, all of the small incidentals that you sometimes forget were already there for us. The house was very clean and we felt very comfortable and welcome during our stay. Would recommend, as it was great that it could accomodate so many of us. The kids loved the games room.Thanks for the great stay!
