Cozy and quaint cottage!

Ruth | 28th July 2023

This was such a cozy & quaint cottage. Basic, but incredibly charming and beautiful location.

Fantastic property and position

Anna | 20th June 2023

We spend a long weekend at this place. Fantastic position, very close to Stanley Pub. Charming, 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. Electric blankets in the beds, bathrooms with lamp heating, washing machine and dryer for your use, heater and fire place (lots of wood in a shed) in the kitchen area. And the most important thing, pet friendly. Diego and Kleks (our dogs) had the best holiday. Lots of waking trails, wonderful coffee in the pub makes pleasant holiday.”

Quaint and charming

David | 8th May 2023

A lovely quaint charming country cottage. ideally located across the road from the Stanley Pub which has an excellent restaurant. The log fire was definitely a bonus as some inclement weather kept us inside.

Quiet and Quirky

Shelly | 13th December 2022

Such a quiet, quirky place, great central location to Beechworth, Yackandandah and Myrtleford, unfortunately we couldn’t take full advantage of what Stanley has to offer as everything was shut, but we loved the place!!

Great place to stay

Florence | 15th December 2021

Location is great as a go between Beechworth and down to Bright. The Stanley Pub across the road is worth going to!

Surprisingly huge house

Greta | 7th December 2021

Surprisingly huge house with plenty of space. Equipped with everything we needed. Super close to the pub and a scenic drive around all the wine regions and attractions. We had a lovely time, even despite the unseasonable torrential downpours!

An easy place to stay in.

Amanda | 7th December 2021

We felt very homely and inviting. Our little dogs were all safe in the confines of the yard. The children also found plenty to do outside. A very peaceful and relaxing stay. Thank you.

Great Location

Kerri | 2nd December 2021

Great location, very quietWithin a (very) short stroll of the Stanley pub where excellent meals are on offer and a 10 minute drive from Beechworth.

A great spot for family and friends

Kim | 27th November 2021

A great spot to meet up with friends or family. The house has plenty of communal place, but also lots of quiet nooks and sunny spots so people can also find some privacy. we spent Christmas here as a group of seven and loved it.

Highly recommended

Hedya | 19th November 2021

Cute place in a peaceful town few minutes drive from beautiful Beechworth.

Relaxing and comfortable stay

Bella | 10th November 2021

We had the most relaxing and comfortable week long stay.We had the most relaxing and comfortable week long stay which we could easily have turned into a month if we didn’t have to go home! The house has everything you need and more, with super comfy beds and lovely furnishings. Stanley is a stunning little village and we certainly made the most of the local swimming hole, nature walks and the local pub!

Great house in a convenient location.

Hilary | 7th November 2021
