About Jan and Ray Ramsay
We are Ray and Jan Ramsay, both professional people who love to travel, but enjoy home comforts instead of motels and hotels. We took note of all the things we thought were great about the places we stayed in and have put them together to create something special. We look forward to having you stay with us.
Jan and Ray Ramsay purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Jan and Ray Ramsay chose Koroit
On a holiday to Port Fairy we discovered Koroit! Fell in love with this country town, which at the time was a little 'down at heel', but we could see it was awakening and had something very special about the place. We decided to start looking for a property, found Birch House (which was just a private residence at the time) and created our holiday rental. We hope one day to retire to this property.
What makes this Cottage unique
Town location, walking distance to all amenities. Large block with lovely gardens. Peaceful location, but close to everything. Much of the cottage is original. The floor boards, the pine lining boards, fireplaces - all 130 years old! The rear of the property has been added over 30years ago, but has been done in keeping with the feel of the property. It truly has a relaxing feel about the property. We have furnished the property in keeping with the period (without being nanna style), our linen is 5 star quality and our beds are high quality and comfortable. We supply plentiful large fluffy towels as well. The lounge has a Chesterfield leather suite which is very comfortable. The kitchen is a large country kitchen, fully equipped with everything you need. The table seats 8 comfortably, the wood fire in the kitchen can heat the whole house. It is definitely the hub and where most people are drawn when they stay. There is a beautiful day bed set under the corner kitchen window which is a favourite spot for many to sit and read, have a cuppa, or just sit and relax. The windows look out over the large entertaining area and the gardens, simply gorgeous.
