Peaceful place to stay.
Lovely lady, friendly attitude
Great games room a movie room, Bbq area, pool, spa area.
They have walk and bycicle trails. Great children area to play in.
The cabin had a kitchen dining and lounge area and has a washing machine, also a fire and it goes really good.
Can sleep up to 6 in the 2 bedrooms so good for families.

Wow. What a place. Beautiful spot amongst the trees and well-kept gardens. Everything you could ask for in the way of facilities. Owners/managers were super-friendly and accommodating. Would recommend particularly for large group getaways.

Nice quiet surroundings in the forest! Extremely good BBQ facilities! Nice to go on a push bike ride around the property! Helpful and informative owners! Clean and well maintained! I have nothing bad to say, would highly recommend this place to anyone and will be back!

This was my second time going to Chiltern cottage and definitely the last time. First experience was two years ago and I liked the setting. I asked some of my friends to join me this time and stay for a weekend. We were 9 adults and 5 young kids (0 to 5 yrs) including a 6 month old baby.
We booked 2 cottages, at check-in they tried to sell me their vacant cottage even though they said first that other two cottages are taken. I refused because we had kids with us and 2 of them would have slept in their own cot. When we went back to check-in my other friends we were approached by other owner (older lady) who was rude and aggressive saying she is not happy with the fact that we have 14 ppl (incld 5 kids) and booked 2 cottages!!
I travel a lot with my twins and the greeting I received from the owners here was the worst experience I ever had, a lot of places don’t count little babies, are flexible with numbers or at least are nice enough to offer alternatives when they see you are travelling with children.

My points here:
– to owners, what did you expect us to do if your other corteges were not vacant? Did you want us to turn around and go back home because we had 2 additional ppl? Or you just wanted to get some cash from your vacant cottage by pushing us to book another cottage?
– they had told me before if there are extra ppl they can stay and might be extra charge but apparently they wanted to rent out their empty cottage and force us to pay for it which didn’t happen
– Throughout the stay they showed up couple of times with grumpy faces and didn’t even responded to us saying hello and good morning
– to Owners, you know your location is not great, after all is in the middle of bush with 2 km of gravel road and nothing really special. At least try to be nice to ppl and less greedy so ppl come back.
– to future travelers, the condition of the place is deteriorating and that reflects on owners attitude towards the guests. All bikes are broken, no dishwasher, mozzies (fair enough u r in the bush), and bad access plus grumpy owners. There are plenty places where you feel welcome, I look elsewhere
