                                            Worked so well for us

                                            ALAN M.Hawthorn East

                                            We used the Manse as the base for our daughter's wedding. Plenty of space for us and the members of our party - children, grandchildren and friends.

                                            A very relaxing country stay, lots of atmosphere.

                                            Wonderful property!

                                            Robyn C.Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

                                            My friends and family were very impressed with the quality of The Manse. Adele's attention to detail in every room was amazing. We were transported back to the olde' world but with all the modern conveniences. We had a wonderful special weekend and the accommodation was excellent. Would recommend The Manse to anyone for a relaxing weekend away.

                                            Brilliant Property & Host

                                            Stephen D.Geelong, Victoria, Australia

                                            We recently stayed at the Mance as a group of friends for a concert at Hanging Rock. The house was fantastic and the host, Adele was brilliant. We had a stocked fridge on arrival and even the fires were stoked and ready to light. The gardens were also nice and relaxing. Adele also organised a bus for us to the concert. Absolutely recommend for a family or group of friends

                                            Relaxing family getaway

                                            Lauren S.Bendigo, Victoria, Australia

                                            We stayed at the Manse with extended family for a long weekend. The kids had an absolute ball, and the adults were treated to some good old fashioned relaxation. The property is beautiful, with everything you could want (inside and out) and Adele's (the owner) hospitality is second to none. We can't wait to go back.

                                            Great house

                                            LilyMelbourne, Victoria, Australia

                                            We loved our stay at the Manse. The house was beautiful and well equipped.

                                            Highly recommend this property.

                                            Fabulous escape

                                            KAREN H.Hoppers Crossing, Victoria, Australia

                                            Spent a very relaxing weekend with a group of friends. Fabulously equipped kitchen. Amazing bedrooms. Lots of space for both alone time and gathering together. Garden was great with expansive lawns, lots of garden beds and some beautiful old trees. Highly recommend.
