    The cabin was nice, clean and met the needs of my family. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin, which had 3 beds and a fold down bed, which we didn't need (2 adults, 2 children), but was happy to see. The location is close to Lara, but outside town, so it's quiet and peaceful. TV had Netflix, my kids got to pat the horses and the beds were comfortable and soft, so they enjoyed the stay. There is air conditioning in the lounge, and ceiling fans in all rooms. The owner was polite, accommodating and even explained about the property and introduced the horses, telling us that we could pat them if we wanted to. It has a kettle, toaster, full size refrigerator with freezer and microwave, but no built in stove, we did find what looked like an electric grill on top of the microwave cupboard, but didn't check as we had takeaway with us. Sachet coffee is provided, we found Moccona cappuccino and latte, but if you want normal coffee/sugar, bring your own. There was a small milk in the fridge. Shower pressure was perfect, not like either the overly soft or the hard "like bullets" pressure you normally get from accommodation... I'm sure you know these pressures! We will definitely be back! I give this 5/5 easily, as it had everything we needed (except that coffee thing, but that's personal taste, and really a non-issue) and more.

    Very clean. Very modern. Impressive TV. Good comms from kind owner. Comfy bed. Unfortunately you could tell someone had smoked in cabin #3 at some stage. No coffee machine. Car park was a mudbath. Would stay again!

    Beautiful location, loved waking up to the horses in the morning. Our 2 year old was very excited when she was able to ride the pony “stella” The cabin was very clean still looked and smelt brand new :-). The only negative we did find was that unless you had the air conditioning on all day, the cabin would get very hot, even with the blinds closed and fans on. Amazing experience, thankyou

    Fantastic Site

    Loved the place, looked a bit rough on the outside but that was because the timber was not sealed or oiled. Inside was really good. The outside view is a bit bare at present but trees have been planted and it will become a private non-town street accommodation. Would stay there again if we need to go to Geelong or beyond again

  • 6.0.Good

    Previous guests ruined it for us

    Unfortunately the people before us were heavy smokers (despite being a non smoking room) the air freshener only masked the smell and it was still very difficult to be comfortable. Not the fault of the staff but very disappointing.
