A Cottage in the Forest - Olinda

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

One of the secret getaways of The Dandenongs, this perfect little cottage (c.1940) is on an acre of forested land located between Olinda and Sassafras Villages.

A private space just for two - whether you want to lie in the king size bed and look out the big picture window to the treeferns, or loll about in the indulgent big spa bath which also has a tree fern outlook, or laze by the fire on a comfortable couch, a glass of Yarra Valley wine in hand, a book from our big bookshelf with your loved one beside you - whatever you choose to do, this is a wonderful place.

There is, of course, TV in the lounge and bedroom, DVDs, music, complimentary WiFi. A full kitchen makes staying in easy, generous breakfast provisiions are included in your tariff. Tucked away in a cupboard is a washing machine and dryer if you are staying a while - writing a book, studying, just relaxing?

Outside there is a little garden area with a BBQ for your use - the friendly Kookaburra expects his cut of the meat though, so watch out if you don't pay up!!

Parking is off street.

A very special place for one couple or two friends.

Nice relaxing cottage

  • 4 of 5

Was a beautiful a location only a very short distance from the township. Was so easy to go out and get anything we needed or go out for dinner. Despite this it felt like we were in a world of our own.
