Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely and relaxing 2 nights staying solo at Stanley Goose. The cottage was very welcoming and clean and had lots of little touches that made it feel like home. Rob and Lee were lovely hosts and even came and rescued me from a particularly large spider that appeared on the window outside!

The verandah was beautiful, with lots of fresh herbs and tomatoes growing. The geese were very happy to have a visitor and came up to visit each morning. It was serene and relaxing sitting having a wine in the evening or my coffee in the morning!

Overall I had a lovely stay and will definitely come back again and recommend to others. Thank you very much!

Total Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Stanley Goose. Our hosts went above and beyond to ensure we had a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Upon arrival we walked in to find a platter of fresh, home grown produce cooked for dinner. The cottage was well designed, very Eco-friendly and we loved the availability of homemade jams and chutneys to choose from at breakfast. After a day of cycling and checking out Beechworth we were able to detox in the sauna, and we were again greeted by our hosts with a freshly made Watermelon Lassi to drink. Delicious. So many nice touches to make it the perfect getaway. We both left feeling totally relaxed and rejuvenated, and will definitely be back again.

Lee and Rob are lovely relaxed hosts who ensure your stay is special. The studio is beautiful and extremely well presented. The surroundings are peaceful and healing. We were able to breathe clean air and view the night stars clearly. Can't wait for a future visit.
