We had 2 families staying in the barn. There was 4 adults and 3 children, there was plenty of room for all of us. Beautiful cosy warm house was ready for us with everything we needed as a family. The kids were so happy with the food, playground, beds, and night gowns(which was a nice touch for winter). Adults were... More

Came here for my sister's 21st birthday and the 3 of us stayed in the coach house and had a girl's night. The rooms exceeded our expectations! The owners have thought about absolutely everything you need and show you how to use everything. When we arrived the place was warm and had music playing - great atmosphere. The place was... More

A wonderful treat given us by family members- would thoroughly recommend to anyone. We didn't need to go out for a meal in the evening as there were enough snacks provided along with a bottle of wine. It was fun playing table tennis in the outer room where we could have had a wood fire if it was cold enough.... More

The Dandenong Ranges was positioned as a romantic getaway and therefore not very children-friendly. Most cottages accepted only couples. Attractions were geared towards adults (except for Puffing Billy). And there were no public playgrounds in the villages of Sassafras, Olinda and Mount Dandenong. The nearest one, I was told, was a 10min drive away in Montrose. So how do we... More

Stayed here for two cosy nights in the middle of winter. Loved this little B&B Big comfy bed, fire place, spa bath, everything you could want for a few nights away. Close to things to do and shops, but with the provisions provided for breakfast, you get more than enough to eat. Thank you for a great stay!

It's beautiful surroundings, along with the well appointed accommodation is everything you hope to find in a semi-seculded environment.

We had the most fantastic stay at Gracehill! Betty provided a delicious breakfast and hamper of foods and snacks. The cottage was well heated and there were great facilities available. Gracehill overlooks stunning gardens and is a 2min drive from Olinda's Main Street. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
