The owners, David and Leanne are amazing. They go out of their way to make the whole experience perfect. The Cottage, the atmosphere was absolutely breathtaking, so good that I'm going back a second time.

We have spent our last 5 wedding anniversary dates at both cottages in the devine Cambridge Cottages establishment and we can't seem to drag ourselves away from this magical place. It provides the ultimate cottage feel with the decor, cute ornimants and sweeping views. David and Lee Anne are very accomodating and it is an absolute MUST to try Lee Anne's infamous Sticky Date Pudding!!! Very clean, attention to detail, everything is catered for and the one of the most enjoyable and relaxing weekends of the year, every year for us!

Costa and Katherine.

An absolutely wonderful stay! The owners, Leanne and David, truly went out of their way to ensure my girlfriend and I had the best stay imaginable. I am an avid runner, and after mentioning it - and finding out David happens to be as well - he offered me a wealth of knowledge on the local hot spots for incredible runs, walks and hikes throughout the stunning surrounding area.
We stayed in Currawong Cottage after Leanne suggesting it to be the slightly more 'romantic' of the two, and we were not disappointed. Locked away in amongst the huge trees and greenery, it offered complete privacy with a cute fence surrounding the courtyard out the front.

The inside had such a nice, warming character to it and an obvious personal touch to the way everything was placed and decorated. And the massive four-poster bed ensured our sleep was a deep one indeed! The owners even organised a limousine to pick us up right from our cottage, which took us up and back to Sky High (the top of Mt Dandenong) for dinner on the Friday night - make sure you make the most of that.

It was a two minute walk to the breathtaking Rhododendron Gardens and right near the township of Olinda, which has plenty of cafe's and boutique shops!

I'm planning our next trip up to the Dandenong's to be much sooner rather than later, and have recommended Cambridge Cottages to all of my friends and family.
If you read this, Leanne & David, thanks once again for one of the nicest weekend get-away's we have had together as a couple and we will be sure to be in touch for our next visit!!

Room Tip: Currawong Cottage was beautiful in every respect, but from what we saw the other looked just as nice...

Staying here in the Currawong cottage on the 14/2/2012 and was a great experience, the small little cottage had heaps of character and is very secluded.


Very relaxing and quiet with aircon and breakfast prepared for us.

Would recommend to anyone that wants a quiet, relaxing get away in the Dandenong ranges.

A beautiful cottage, lovely surrounds, very clean and tidy. We stayed at the Kookaburra Cottage. Breakfast provisions were very generous, the service was friendly and helpful. A great place to relax and get away. Olinda has a lot to offer, plenty of walks, cafes etc.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2012

As part of our recent tour of Victoria, we stayed in Kookaburra Cottage and our friends in Currawong Cottage and we all enjoyed our stay so much that we asked to extend our three night stay for an extra night. The attention to detail to make our stay comfortable and relaxing in the cottages was outstanding, from the lit fire, quiet music and home baked cakes and the delicious breakfast ingredients waiting for us in the fridge and the home baked bread nestled in a white napkin waiting on the bread board. We were told the best place and time of day to see Lyre Birds in the Rhododendron Gardens which were just down the road and advised on the places to see nearby, nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were loathe to leave.
