“Great wine country location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2009

Wide Horizon's B&B was a great place to stay. My husband and I stayed for three nights and visited the Yarra Valley wine area. We hiked and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The hosts (Robyn & Gary) were great and the breakfasts were amazing. On the down side no real internet connection so be prepared to be away from your computer unless you go to town and sign in there at a cafe or the info center.

My wife and I stayed at Wide Horizons for 3 nights in December. The property is beautiful; guests rooms are very comfortable and clean (we stayed in the main house, but had a peek in the cottage and it is very nice), the lawn is a great place to sit and read with wonderful views. There are 2 things that make this B&B standout: First, the food. Afternoon tea with cake upon arrival was delicious. But it paled in comparison to the breakfast each morning which was amazing. Second, the hosts. Robyn and Gary are incredibly hospitable and go far beyond what you would expect from owners of a B&B. They really made the experience stand out. We just hope we can make it back there.

Wonderfull welcome from Minehosts Gary and Robyn when my wife and I drive up to the Frontdoor of Wide Horizons B&B. My wife and I had one night. Everything was absolutely First class from the picturesque gardens to the facilities and the Breakfast. As I had enjoyed myself on the wine trail Gary was only too willing to transport my wife and I down town to the Innocent Bystander Winery and Cafe for an excellent evening meal.

We found this B&B on Trip Advisor and my husband is astounded at how fab your website is at sending us to idyllic holiday accommodation. We stayed in the little cottage and it was like stepping into a country living set, it was just so beautifully presented. You had your own decking overlooking the gorgeous gardens. The double spa bath, homemade cookies and jams, crisp bed linen and all the other little extras were just so lovely.
The hosts deliver a basket of homemade bread or muffins outside your door every morning they are wrapped and decorated with fresh flowers. It is very private and the hosts are helpful but leave you alone. We had been in Melbourne for a week and this country retreat was a super end to the holiday.
We also loved views from Domain Chandon Winery, Healseville sanctuary especially birds of prey show, Innocent Bystander restaurant/wine bar in Healesville. Also good walk to waterfall at Marysville.

We recently returned from our third trip to Australia and I wanted to tell you of a great B and B. We spent 2 nights in Healesville at Wide Horizons and loved it. It was a beautiful place and our hosts did everything to make us feel at home. Our breakfasts were so special as Robyn was a terrific cook and offered many cooked courses which she did superbly. We were in the B and B but there also is the possibility of staying in a self catering cottage which was so nicely done that you would want for nothing. If you want to be treated royally and to visit a beautiful area of Australia, we recomment the B & B Wide Horizons run by Gary and Robyn.
