Fabulous one bedroomed cottage in immaculate condition and PET FRIENDLY
We stumbled upon this little gem and were delighted with our weekend at Lilly Pilly. The location is Hermitage Road but set off from the road. The cottage reminds me of the children's song "In a cottage in the woods, a little old man at the window stood - saw a rabbit hopping by..." Only difference was we saw kangaroos each morning - eyeing us out and then hopping away. We felt so relaxed in this ideal peaceful location. Tanya and Bruce ensured that all our needs were met and exceeded out expectations. A litre bottle of premium milk (not those little long life sachets" - a huge selection of teas, jams etc. A large bottle of juice, free range eggs and yummy bread. The cottage is well-equipped and modern. The bed was super comfy and there was a selection of pillows, doonas and comforters. Our dogs were so comfortable it was fabulous. Both Tanya and Bruce were amazing hosts and provided a wealth of information as to pet friendly vineyards and cafes. We can't wait to return.
The property was as new with all comforts
Tanya the owner was a wonderful lady which accomadated to all our needs.
Would definitely recommend and come again
Modern and serene
A little hidden gem in the Hunter. We stayed there with our dog and we all enjoyed every single bit of it.
I'm Coming Back
Really enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere at Spotted Gums.
Everything was perfect and the welcoming bottle of wine was a really nice touch.
Close to all the action in the Hunter Valley, I would recommend the Spotted Gums cottageto anyone.

Cozy and sweet modern cottage!
We recently stayed at Lilly Pilly, the one-bedroom cottage at Spotted Gum and had a wonderful stay! We had our 22-month old son with us and it was spacious and lovely. The owners, Tanya and Bruce were very kind and gave us great recommendations on places to visit nearby. Morning coffee, sourdough toast and cereals were delicious!! Would highly recommend, especially for families.
Thank you Liz, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, we look forward to welcoming you and your family another time and recommending other places to visit in the Hunter Valley. Tanya
