“Relaxed, Scenic get away for two”
Reviewed 6 October 2012

My girlfriend and I stayed recently at Aurora Cottages(The Mountain View). Was exactly as the pictures looked, Very luxurious. I preferred these cottages as opposed to any five star hotel room because I had wanted to cook for her. and it came with almost everything you could possibly think of to use for any such meal.

All the extras you get with this from the widescreen tv for watching movies from either the lounge area, or the sleeping area, when you want to just relax after a day of taking in the sites. To the spa bath surrounded in candles.

I would recommend this to anyone wanting to visit the Grampians area, Halls Gap only minutes by car, have quite a few nice scenic walks.

I would also recommend to drive slowly along the dirt road known as Tunnel Road that the property is situated on, for there are around a hundred kangaroos just hopping around!

Would gladly visit again around the same time next year!

My partner and I recently stayed at the Aurora Cottages(Six Seasons) for three nights. We were after a relaxing, quiet time in close proximity to the Grampians. We were certainly not disappointed, Six Seasons is perfect for a couples retreat. The setting surrounding the cottages is tranquil, peaceful and beautiful. From waking up early and walking through bushland, reading on the hammock or deck to nights in front of the fire, we were very happy with our stay.

The cottage itself had everything you could want, it was spotless on entry and each night we had firewood prepared for us. The open living works nicely in this cottage and the rotating widescreen TV was a winner, being able to watch the Olympics in front of the fire in the evening and at night in bed on the TV was a pleasant surprise.

Despite their being two other cottages on the land it feels very much like your own private getaway, surrounded by nature, kangaroos and silence. The outdoor decking with relaxing deck chairs is the perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon. At night the spa/fire and entertainment system are ideal.

Would recommend Aurora Cottages to anyone seeking a peaceful and stylish time within close proximity to the Grampians.

We stayed here for 2 nights in June 2012. The property is nice but the cottage (six seasons) is built very poorly with fittings falling off here and there. There is no insulation and despite having the fire and the reverse cycle aircon going it was still extremely cold in the mornings. At the end of a day hiking we returned to have a spa only to find there was NO hot water! It had run out because the hot water is only connected off peak. For the price of this place you should be able to have hot water when ever you want it. In saying this the location is lovely, the place was immaculately clean and the kitchen is great. Just very disappointing they failed in the execution of a property with such potential.

We were so impressed with the location, the setting and the property itself. The facilities are excellent and the peace was unnerving at first but welcome. The owner is responsive and accommodating. The area is a great place to go with great views, vineyards and Mackenzie's Falls were fantastic. The people in the area are friendly. We didn't want to leave Aurora Cottages and would have retired there if we could. We will be back!

We have a lovely stay in the remote location that the cottage was located and yet it is very quick to get to Halls Gap and the other wonderful sites that the Grampians have to offer. As the other reviews have said, there is plenty of opportunity to kick back and watch wildlife from the veranda or to enjoy all the mod cons inside the cottage. Highly recommended.

It was an amazing 5 nights stay during Easter and everything was perfect. The remote location, the little pond where kangaroos came for water or even for a ...swim, the sky watching at night, wildlife every morning...
About the house itself, the only word that comes to mind is Excellence. It has everything you need and everything works, from the coffee machine to the aircon and spa.Also, the spa, firplace and the huge bedroom window with remote controlled blinds just made our stay excellent.

The Aurora cottage was very well equipped and located on a spacious property. There was absolute privacy. Animals going past the cottage including kangaroos, emus, rabbits and deer. This would be the perfect location for international visitors! A lovely relaxing environment with excellent amenities. Highly recommended!
