What guests say about Tarrangower Country House:

"As this beautiful home is surrounded by acres and acres of woodland you are completely removed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and transported into a haven of quiet, peace and calm!"

"This place was utterly amazing, the serenity, the peace, the views and the most magnificent, fully furnished house to match! I highly recommend this place to anyone, any time of the year, for either a relaxing get away or somewhere to party up, have a bbq, a few drinks and relax in the pool!

definitely will be back!"

"Tarrangower is the most idyllic of locations, so much so I call it Heaven House!! Even before Sally Ann works her magic, you will feel completely relaxed just walking through the doors of this unique and wonderful house!"

"It is furnished to such a high standard and the views from all rooms are stunning! It is quite a common occurrence to see kangaroo families, not to mention a myriad assortment of wildlife, going about their daily business!!!"

"Sitting on the balcony, with a full blown moon staring back at me, is something I shall never forget!"

"We had another wonderful stay at beautiful Tarrangower. Yesterday was one of those beautiful Winter days. We took advantage of the sunshine and sat on the balcony for most of the day.Thank you once again for the use of your exquisite property."

"Tranquility personified at Tarrangower. Great bush walks of surrounding area and big kangaroos hopping within metres of you sweeten the deal. Head back to the house, crank the open fire, light some candles and cook like a pro in the open space kitchen. Enjoy the intimacy while you devour your meal and gaze out to the countryside with its panoramic views. Take dessert and your glass of wine out to the balcony and watch the sun lower itself down. Pure joy. Stay for longer than just a weekend to really reap all the benefits."

"Absolutely beautiful accommodation!! a lot of attention to detail went into this cottage. Comfortable for 6 adults, well equipped kitchen. Tranquil, secluded and the wood fire heater went into good use. Thank you Sally-Ann for catering to our needs. Definitely would visit again, maybe in summer."

Amazing and peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a truly wonderful stay at your beautiful property Sally-Ann. It was so relaxing and comfortable, like a home away from home. The open fire was perfect for the season and kept us cosy and warm (our first day here was the coldest winter day in Melbourne thus far!) and it was lovely curling up on the couch with a glass of red and a game of Yahtzee with the kids. The girls loved the toys you left out for them, the teddies in particular were a huge hit and much loved. The walks were amazing and invigorating, with plenty of wildlife to see - roos, bunnies and beautiful birds abound. Thanks once again, we would love to come back soon for another visit.

No review would do this place justice.

A perfect way to relax and recharge the batteries. Not a car or house in sight.

Waking up to watch the sunrise with eagles flying overhead with only the resident roos for company.

We arrived with plans to make day trips but spend the duration of our stay in the spa and on the deck, taking in the clean sights and air. It felt like someone made paradise and chose to share it with us.

Family Enriching Experience & Relaxation Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay at Tarrangower was absolutely fantastic, we couldn't have been any happier with the property. We didn't leave the property the entire time and had adventures from bush walking, yabbying, building huts, bike riding, playing games, swimming and enjoying the spa. It was so nice to relax and allow the children to explore parts of the property without us being right by their side. The views were amazing and the wildlife were everywhere, especially kangaroos and we even found an echidna! Sally-Ann was just wonderful to deal with, she made sure we had everything we needed and was very thoughtful by having particular items for the children when we arrived. Thank you Sally-Ann, we will be back.
