Stone's Throw Cottage B&B

Reviewed 22 March 2014

Great place to stay! You see, I actually stayed in January 2009, and have forgotten much, but hey it really is an excellent place to stay! M. Nelson, the hostess, is the type to stick in your mind for a long time - in a good way. The rooms could not me more fitting and ideal, and what more to say, this place is great!

A Sunday wedding in the Dandenongs (with my husband as Best Man) meant we needed to find accommodation for 4 near the reception. By chance we came across Stone's Throw Cottage on the internet. Our email enquiry was quickly answered and we decided to book the Saturday night as well.

We were greeted by Molly the dog and shown to our gorgeous accomodations by Margaret. The cottage is beautifully furnished and very clean. There is plenty of space for a family of 4 but it has a lovely cosy feel. Our sons (aged 13 and 11) loved their upstairs room which came complete with a tv and dvd player. A great selection of DVDs were supplied (my sons enjoyed their Back To The Future marathon). They also loved the fact that there was free wifi in the cottage (we found it worked the best upstairs). Just a note - there is no toilet upstairs. I probably would not recommend very small children stay upstairs.

Breakfast supplies (cereals, toast, fruit, yoghurt etc) were supplied and the kitchen has everything you need to make meals if you don't want to venture down the road where there is a nice selection of restaurants and cafes.

The beds were comfortable. The bathroom has to be the cleanest I have come across in my years of travelling here and overseas! The verandah overlooks a lovely green garden and in the morning you can feed the birds if you wish.

We would definitely stay here again.

Wow!! Thank you so much for your review ... and your pictures! So glad you and your boys had a lovely stay here. Yes, regarding the upstairs room... definitely not suitable for little children but perfect for say over 8yr olds. Hope to see you here again! .......Margaret

We stayed at Stones Throw Cottage recently . it was perfectly situated, perfectly furnished and accessorised and just perfect for us. We would stay there again when the occasion arises. WE loved the next two areas of Sassafras and Olinda. Great Part of Melbourne for visitors.

We were looking for a place to base ourselves in the hills, while visiting a lot of family, during events like engagement & birthday parties, in Oct 13. The cottage was ours for 4 nights I think, and it was perfect as a lovely place to spend our time. Margaret (& Molly the gorgeous dog), really welcomed us and continued to look after us. We were provided excellent breakfast items too. The birdlife was superb.
We'll be back!

Room Tip: We really enjoyed the cottage, but we understand the suite in the main house is pretty good.

My wife suprised me on my 60th birthday by booking the lunch time puffing billy train (which was excellent) and then walking up to this lovely cottage a few minutes away from the town centre. i was blown away when she told me we were here for the night. what a wonderful experience in a great cottage. Marg and Rob were friendly and very helpful and the place was equiped with everything you would need. Dvds, Cds, breakfast basket and a comfy bed. The birds in the morning sitting and munching on seed was a lovely sight to wake up to. It was the best birthday I have enjoyed and would highly recommend the stones throw to local and overseas visitors alike, thanks guys, we will be back some day.

My mother-in-law and I loved the snuggy atmosphere to this b&b especially as it was winter when we stayed.
My 5 yrs old daughter loved feeding the kookaburra and the beautiful parrots on the back porch. Margaret and her gorgeous dog Molly were extremely accommodating and friendly. Also a close walk to everything. Highly recommend the stay.
