Waking up to a beautiful sunrise between the trees and listening to the nearby water stream was the best part of the stay. Location wise, it was right at the bottom of Mount Hotham which may it easy for the trip up and down stress free. The cottage itself was very nicely presented and maintained. John and Anne have done a wonderful job maintaining the cottage and its surroundings. I would definitely head back with family and friends to stay at this cottage again....
