Our history stretches back to the early 1900s when the original 10 room guesthouse, known as "Gordons Guest Home", was constructed. After most of the building was destroyed in a fire in the early 1960s, the remains were lovingly restored into what now stands as the charming "Rose Cottage", one of three fully self-contained cottages which now inhabit the remaining ten acres. Our other 2 cottages, Sage and Hanaby, were added to the property in 1996 to service a growing need for quality tourism accommodation in a region that was becoming one of Victoria;s major tourism attractions. Both Sage and Hanaby are very comfortable open plan style studio cottages for couples who value their privacy. All cottages contain wood fires (wood provided from June-Sept only, electric blankets, TV, CD player and reverse cycle air-conditioning and along with our swimming pool (summer mths only) there are also BBQ facilities available .
