A Delight

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying here. Cabin is small but wonderfully clean, tidy and comfortable. Some provisions provided, tea, coffee, milk, cereal. Being dog friendly is a bonus. Great spot to sit on front porch, looking out over the swimming lake. Close to shops, cafés and supermarket. Will stay again.

Tiny cabin, great verandah!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here for 5 nights in May and enjoyed my time in Sparkling Springs Cabin. It is very small, but I was pleased with all the supplies such as ample towels, soap, kitchen utensils, etc. I noticed there were lots of hooks which are very useful for hanging towels or light bags. I think some shelving, especially in the bathroom would be a great addition as there was no space for toiletries. There were some breakfast provisions provided which I didn't use, but would have if I hadn't brought my own. The double bed was very comfy. Another little touch which I appreciated was a night light near the bathroom. A welcoming lamp was on when I arrived, and in the evenings it provided a lovely, warm ambiance.

Comfortable

  • 3 of 5

Sparkling Springs Cabin was the ideal spot to be for our getaway on a budget. The accommodation was welcoming and clean. Everything you needed was supplied including all linen, cooking utensils, pots and pans. The cabin was compact but not cramped and suitable for a family of four. The location was convenient being close to the town centre and only a 10 minute drive to Ballarat. Would fully recommend for a short family holiday.
