We had originally only booked for the Saturday and Sunday night, but late afternoon on Friday I message John and Anne to see if we were able to come up late that night and they got back to me straight away and said that was fine. We arrived late that night to a warm and welcoming cottage. Even though we didn’t actually meet John till we were checking out, he and Anne were helpful from first booking with information on where to hire snow equipment to the information sheets in the cottage about the surrounding areas, as well as asking and taking interest on how our weekend was when checking out. Shady Brook is such a lovely place to stay, set on amazing grounds and I would recommend to anyone wanting to go to Mt Hotham or Mt Buffalo....

Wonderful cosy cottage surrounded by nature. Very clean, warm and comfortable. Great position as a base to explore the Alpine region. We had a fantastic stay at Shady Brook Alpine cottage with the river bubbling close by. The only thing we might suggest you could change is the size of the towels, they were very small. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway and would definitely return....
