Lovely large house

  • 5 of 5

The location is a short drive to town and is even closer to Sovereign Hill. We'd never been to Ballarat before and this was a great start! The house was larger than we'd expected and felt very spacious. It was very nice inside and easy to heat, which we had to despite being summer, since the nights were cold. We were very pleased with our stay.

Really cosy cottage..

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay there. It's a excellent cottage with all amenities. Also it's really a home away from home. Lisa was very friendly and contactable at any time. The gas heating was great. We would prefer to stay there again when we come to Ballarat.

Beautiful, well presented property

  • 5 of 5

We had a midweek stay at Trethowan Cottage for the Royal South Street Energetiks Dance Competition. The property is extremely cosy and comfortable and located very conveniently to the heart of the city of Ballarat.

Lisa is an exceptional host with great communication.

The beds are super comfy and we really loved the gas log heater in the lounge room which made us feel so cosy and warm. We really loved everything about this property.

We would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a nice stay in beautiful Ballarat.

Well appointed Cottage

  • 4 of 5

A lovely cottage with a very well appointed kitchen, very comfortable bed and above all great gas heater which given it was down to 1C during our stay was very much appreciated. Electric blankets on the bed was also a great extra. The backyard has 2 great outdoor areas if staying in the warmer weather. Netflix was a bonus and games for the kids also. Good off street parking and lovely views from the lounge and bedroom. Good bathroom and added bonus of an outside extra toilet for families. All in all I thoroughly recommend Trethowan Cottage for your stay in Ballarat.
