We were recommended to stay at Tessa & Stewart's cottages by a friend, and it was a great recommend. Tucked away at the top of Mount T(insert hard to pronounce name here), we were met by Stewart and given a quick tour of the cottage, then left to our own devices. We stayed in Silver Wattle, with a view through...

We stayed at Lyrebird in the Silver Wattle Cabin on our way home from a hectic weekend wedding. The cabin was ready on our arrival, with everything we needed to just "chill" and recover. The fittings and supplies, (local ++++), were of the highest standard. I had the best sleep for years in that incredible bed. Spa and fire were...

Lyrebird Cottages provided us with a perfect bush setting to chill out and relax together. The views were stunning & the wildlife and gardens enjoyed immensely. The cottage was clean, cosy and modern, with all needed amenities for a wonderful weekend away from it all. Shops, restaurants and places of interest were all readily accessible, which made for a fantastic...

The cottage was exactly what I expected. A cosy and peaceful place. I loved all the little details and the owners were very nice. We also ordered dinner, which was delicious and not expansive at all. I even saw a wallabee on our last day ! And the bathtub is a must. Would definitely recommand this place, for at least...

Had a one night stay at Lyrebird cottage. Place was big and clean. There's a fireplace to keep the house warm. Tessa remembered that we were interested in visiting healesville sanctuary and provided us discounted tickets the next morning. We even took a short forest trail and spotted a lyrebird! Thanks for the enjoyable stay.

Delightful haven for those wanting to escape. From the fresh bacon, eggs, bread and homemade jams that make up your first morning's breakfast; the marshmallows and hot chocolate in the pantry; the champagne stopper in the cutlery draw; the essential oils in the oil burner next to the spa; the binoculars that sit in wait on the table to the...

Fabulous getaway cottage. Deep in the quiet surrounds of the bush. Plenty of wildlife and walking. Home is super, welcoming and warm during this cold snap. Tessa and Stewart were lovely and the start up provisions were more than adequate.
