4/5 Good

Luxurious country retreat
Beautiful decor, lovely views and a restful stay. Stunning grounds to walk around. The cottage was so beautifully decorated. Breakfast items were mentioned in the description but I would advise that you bring your own. We found a half used packet of weetbix, 250ml milk, butter and jams. The place was so toasty warm. We paid $15 extra per night for firewood.

5/5 Excellent

Warm & embracing.
The School House and the broader Waterloo Station is really an unbelievable accomodation offering. A collection of important historic buildings brought back to life with an authentic vision and an unbridled execution. The School House was compact, warm & embracing, we felt completely at home. Deb was a most attentive and gracious host. We will return again soon. Thank you.

The property is just beautiful and the cottage is just lovely, from the thoughtful renovation and the lovely fire that came in handy as it was cold however we were as warm as anything. The grounds of the main house is beautiful and quiet and relaxing.

Happy customers including pooch, Hank
The schoolhouse was just as described. We had a lovely stay and would definitely return. For us, no WiFi or phone reception (Telstra) was a great way to disconnect. The cottage received satellite TV so the hubby could still watch the footy. We were also pleasantly surprised that we could take our small pooch, Hank, who loved meeting Tilly and her little black and white buddy. They all made instant friends. The bed was very comfortable and warm. Cooking facilities were excellent. I was impressed by how quickly the water boiled in the induction stove top. Beautifully appointed and impeccable garden. Thank you for having us.
