Firstly you will need to search to make a link to talk to the lady that looks after the cottages. She is amazing and her name is Jan. She made our stay and I could not thank her enough. The cottage (Dolphin is the one we stayed in) is up on the hill in a prime location overlooking the bay....

There are not enough adjectives to do justice to the Bay of Fire Character Cottages ... beautiful, stunning, best ever... are a few that just come to mind. We stayed in 'The Deluxe Cottage' in April and the amazement began with the turn of a key. The cottage itself was a great design.. my sister and her husband had the...

We stayed one night, we were very lucky because someone couldn't make their booking. I don't think that I have ever seen such a clean and tidy place ever!! Very cosy and relaxing. What a beautiful part of the world. We got takeaway from the restaurant next door, was just fish and chips. Very nice but a bit pricey, but...

We rented 'Kingfisher' for a couple of nights coming to the end of our brief foray into Tasmania. Directions were excellent and the cottage was just wonderful. The view from the balcony is just spectacular and we felt thoroughly spoilt! Everything you need is here. Well equipped and everything easy to operate (we took advantage of the laundry facilities). A...

We booked the Burgess Cottage for two nights early March. It was the first place we stopped on the East Coast and it was stunning. Would have happily stayed a week if time allowed. The cottage was perfectly positioned for beach access (just over the road) and to Moresco restaurant (next door). The cottage was well equipped, very clean and...

We would return here again. Our cottage was squeaky clean, comfortable, and well equipped. The front deck overlooks the Bay and at the rear of the cottage a good sized barbeque area under shade. The fit out & décor is not high spec, but nor is it frilly vintage style either. It was a very neat cottage perfect for a...

Binalong Bay is such a beautiful area and these cottage's are perfectly positioned to take in the magnificent views. Our cottage was very clean and well equipped with everything you need for a lovely stay. A quick walk across the road and a long leisurely walk a along the beautiful beach, who couldn't ask for better.

The cottages overlook the picturesque binnalong bay. You couldn't ask for a more stunning location. We wish we arrived earlier in the afternoon to enjoy the view more. Do a shop before you arrive in binnalong bay unless you plan eating out

We have stayed here three times over the years largely because of the location - easy access to the beach at Binalong Bay and unbeatable views across the Bay of Fires. The cottages are comfortable enough and suitable for family needs although quite dated given the price. They provide most basic needs of modern accommodation (including washing machine, hair dryer,...

I am disappointed that you saw necessary to post these comments. I do understand where this has come from and why. The previous two reviewers stayed in this very same cottage and loved it. They also said how comfortable the beds are. There are two extra dining chairs to use at the table for larger parties. One in the queen...

We only stayed one night, but was a welcome relief after 10 days of hiking. Great view, great heating. Washing machine facilities with clothesline or clotheshorse for drying were excellent. Shower was hot with good water pressure. Beds were very comfortable. Driveway is very steep!! Moresco restaurant next door was exceptional, followed by a walk on beautiful beach with resident...
