Very relaxing stay in a comfortable house
We were three adults and a dog, and all four of us enjoyed our stay very much. The house was comfortable and the surrounding garden was well maintained and ideal for relaxing in.
The nearest supermarket is in Hamilton (30 km away) so make sure you get all your shopping done in one go. There is a small store in Dunkeld but it is only open during business hours.
* Rooms were comfortable
* Kitchen was easy to work in
* Large airy bathroom
* Nice garden
* Plenty of secure space to let the dog run around and explore
A few niggles:
* A mop and bucket would have helped us to clean up the tiled areas better, especially after the dog tracked in mud
* The shower stall in the bathroom was too small, even though the bathroom itself was big
* The front gate is very hard to open and close, which is a pain.
Beautiful scenery and spacious house.
Beautiful scenery and garden with views from the spacious house. Definitely worth considering a re-visit.
Peaceful and serene. Really beautiful place to stay
The house was amazing, lots of space for the kids to play and the gardens were beautiful. We loved Connecting and appreciating nature with a spectacular view of the Grampians.
Great place. Plenty of room, beds are comfy,.
Overall experience was just what we needed. Quiet location with plenty of room.
Peaceful and animal heaven
A male peacock welcomed us upon arrival. House is massive, an old OZ home with garden. It was like a maze for us. You can see sun rise and sunset from the gate. The gate is heavy so we got sick of opening and closing each time but we had the lovely Xmas get away. Surrounded by birds, wild & farm animals, butterflies and the Rocky Mountains. The kitchen utensils are limited so if you are into cooking, I recommend taking your own tools with you. Shops are 20 min drive away and people in the area seem to be all very happy and friendly. Auto-mated petrol station is 5 min away. Hiking at the Chimney Pots was the highlight for us. (40 min drive from the house) We did not see a soul and the view was just stunning!
How's the serenity!!
What a wonderful place to stay - we came for the Dunkeld Races and had a ball - Clean, roomy, comfortable accommodation and it had everything we needed. Had pre-race drinks out in the beautiful cottage garden before our day at the races....we'll be back :) thanks Stan
