My family and I have been staying at Spotted Chook Ferme Auberge for many years and it has always offered a unique and delightful B & B experience like no other in Montville. We fell in love with The Spotted Chook for so many reasons and have continued this love affair for nearly 10 years. Each room has its own individual name and style, this time we booked the Loft Room which has scenic views over the valley and offers a feeling of living in the clouds!

Each room has its own bathroom, our Loft Room had a funky claw foot bath to relax in while sipping on a champers! The bed is handmade and beautifully comfortable with lovely fresh white linen and plump pillows - a lovely nest for our weekend away.

The breakfasts at the Spotted Chook are always inspirational and we are never disappointed! We indulged in farm fresh eggs - Eggs Benedict for my husband, and poached for me, with fabulous homemade sourdough, roasted tomatoes and rocket from the garden. There are platters of friands, croissants and fresh seasonal fruits to chose from and freshly brewed coffee.

The Spotted Chook is a our little piece of paradise - somewhere to escape to from your hectic city life and a place to relax and spoil yourself with a special wine by the fire, either in the guest lounge or in your own private nest.

We cannot sign off without mentioning a relatively new addition to the Spotted Chook - Amelie's Petite Mason. A unique little cottage designed for the romantic at heart! It will make you smile and send a shiver down your spine as you prop yourself up in the spa bath on your deck overlooking the valley - have a look for yourself at www.spottedchook.com.au - Amelies. Who could resist for that very special weekend of romance!

Thank you Jane and Leeroy for another memorable weekend in the country!

From the moment we were greeted by the managers nothing was too much trouble.
We were taken to the Snow Pea Suite and from the moment we stept into the suite, the sun was filtering through the windows, we thought we had steped into a French Picture. There was a beautiful view over the garden from our deck and our daughers were able to have a run around in the privacy of the yard.
There were two single beds tucked around the corner of our bedroom where our daughters slept, and this gave my wife and I privacy. From the fluffy robes and quality linen we would recommend this accommodation to our family wanting to have a relaxing stay.
The gourmet breakfast was fantastic. My wife had scrambled eggs and I had the full breakfast (my only complaint was we ate too much) Our daughters wanted different things and it was prepared and server without a fuss. Thank you.
It was such a lovely relaxing stay.

We're just back from a couple of nights at the Spotted Chook. Like many others it had been on our list of places to stay for a while and we finally managed to get a weekend to ourselves and booked.

Due to a bit of a technical hitch we ended up staying one night in the Snowpea room and the other in Amelie's Cottage. Not a real problem as the rooms were both beautiful and the bag transfers were taken care of for us with the minimum of fuss while we headed off walking.

The accommodation itself was simple but a lot of thought had been put into the little details. There were unsurprisingly a large number of chooks but also fresh flowers and knick-knacks everywhere. It felt somewhat like visiting a friend's house and the welcome from Leeroy and Jane was equally warm. Apparently they were recently returned from three months overseas and more than happy to share travel stories and take the time to make us feel welcome in their home.

Given the temperatures outside we were grateful to see that the fire was lit in the lounge room and even happier when we noticed a batch of dough proving in the warm spot next to the fire.

We opted to dine in on the Saturday night and were not disappointed. Starter was a prawn dish with a mild curry sauce, the main was coq au vin and we finished the meal with a majestic strawberry souffle and tea or coffee. They were happy to cope with pretty much any dietary requirements or preferences if necessary. BTW it's BYO.

Breakfasts were a very relaxed affair. We overindulged in homemade granola, thick yoghurt and pastries and while there's no set menu for the cooked portion Leeroy was quite happy to make some suggestions. Most of these involved fresh eggs from their own chickens and the eggs benedict with smoked salmon was particularly good.

As for the rooms the Snowpea was fine although very green. It would be ideal for a couple with a young child or two if all were happy in the same room.

Amelie's Cottage was another step up. It's self-contained with a fridge, two-plate hob and microwave/convection oven. There's a big bathroom with a shower and claw-foot bath and outside on the deck there was a giant hot-tub with views over the valley. The layout was open plan but with the fire going we were toasty and warm throughout the night.

The only downsides were the scratchy bathrobes and the slightly disappointing coq au vin (at least compared to the rest of the meal) and coffee but these were small issues when compared to what was one of the most relaxing getaways we've spent for a long time.

We stayed in the Snowpea room, which opened onto a little porch & garden , and also had an extra couple of single beds in nook tucked around the corner where our 7-year-old daughter slept, so it was perfect for our small family. The little creek down bottom of the property is picturesque. Leroy and Jane were incredibly friendly. The breakfasts were luscious, with eggs fresh from the spotted chooks out the back. Altogether a wonderful weekend.

I booked this trip last minute and wasn't sure what to expect. When we got there we immediately were struck with how French and how clean this place was. You're greeted by the owners- both are very nice!! The decor is just adorable- very country and very french. The rooms are very big and spacious- and each room is different and unique.

The breakfast there is amazing- there is a mixture of fresh fruit, cereals, hot breakfast with gourmet bread and very delicious jams.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who needs some R&R. It's worth every dollar!
