Cosy cottage with a great host

The cottage is really nice and cosy with nice seats out in front to chill and soak in the surroundings. Margaret, our host, was also really friendly and helpful. She provided us additional breakfast items when she worried the original items might not suit our palate. She also provided us medicine when one of us felt ill and offered to drive us to the nearest town when we said we needed to rent a car. Great place to stay if you want to take a ride on Puffing Billy!

Stayed 2 nights in Nov 2019

Charming self-contained cottage

Warm and inviting free standing, self-contained cottage, 5 minutes away from the centre of Belgrave. Lovely furnishings, the smallest details taken care of. Gorgeous garden surrounds to look out on, especially with the autumn colours. Generous continental breakfast, and the owner Margaret was lovely and attentive, making sure we had everything we needed. Cute and comfortable attic bedroom, with 2 beds, tv/dvd player and heater was a bonus and made the stay fun! Close enough to the Belgrave town centre to walk, and take advantage of cafes and the cinema. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay, highly recommend and will definately return!!

Cons: Nothing!

5/5 Excellent

A stones throw experience

Belgrave has alot to offer and a stay at Stones Throw Cottage will not disappoint, its cosy,comfortable and well appointed , the cottage is within a 10 minute walk to town and the main attraction Puffing Billy, if you are arriving by train take my advice let Margaret know and she may be able to come and pick you up.

Pros: Everything!

Cons: Nothing comes to mind

Location: Puffing Billy is the star attraction, the scenery is outstanding and a drive through the puffing billy route I'm sure would be just as relaxing.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic cottage in a tranquil peaceful setting.

My husband and I absolutely loved Stones Throw Cottage in Belgrave. Margaret and Rob were so welcoming and friendly, felt like we'd known them for ages. The cottage was so comfortable and cosy and the back verandah and decking was wonderful, so much greenery everywhere was so relaxing and private. Bed was very comfy and the breakfast supplies were delicious. Would recommend this lovely cottage to anyone, very romantic for a couple and has 2 single beds in the attic room upstairs as well. Loved this place and we will definitely go back again. Thanks so much Margaret and Rob, we were sad to leave.

Pros: Everything.

Cons: The only thing that could be improved would be the noisy fan in the bathroom but that's all. Everything else was charming.

Location: Belgrave is a lovely place in the Dandenong Ranges near the Puffing Billy railway station. The cinema is good and great places to eat.

5/5 Excellent
