We stayed for one night in early Jan 2014 in the Mountain Ash Cottage (the lower of the two).
The cottage was beautiful and well equipped. The location was scenic and peaceful. Highly recommended.
To get there, it's a 15-20 minute drive from Healesville.
The cottage retains an old fashioned charm, but is built with modern conveniences like a spa bath and a quality kitchen. There's a fireplace with wood provided, and a balcony amidst a beautiful garden. The view is partly obscured by the treeline (from the Mountain Ash Cottage at least) but it is nonetheless very scenic.
They left a small home made cake, with an accompanying note wishing us a happy anniversary. We felt this was a very nice touch.
