“Must love relaxation and good food”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We stayed in the beautifully renovated Chandelier Suite for two nights which was perfectly suited to our needs. The Suite had a good sized lounge room with a large tv which allowed us to stay in and have relaxing night in after a great day at the local wineries. The hosts were lovely and gave us great tips on what to do around town and places to eat. The breakfasts were fantastic (and very large). I would definitely recommend the wine tour with Charlie who spent four hours taking us to various wineries and provided us historical information along with interesting stories throughout the afternoon. While we didn't have any dogs the hosts made us feel very welcome and we would stay there again if visiting the region.

This was the best-organised dog-friendly accommodation we've ever had. No detail was overlooked. Everything we needed was provided in the very comfortable cottage.

The location is great, too. An excellent home base for the Victorian North East.

Best B&B in Australia. The most welcoming and hospitable hosts. We stayed in the Garden Suite for six nights which was very relaxing + cosy. Our fur kid felt quite at home. Charles' breakfasts were delicious - lecker! And Chris' stories were always entertaining. It is the perfect stay with or without your dog. Simply amazing!!!

Travelling with dogs is sometimes a problem, but fear not, this little place is the best....
From the loveliest hosts, to the nicest food (breakfast is yum, so is Devonshire tea...didn't get to have their famous dinner though).... You will be well looked after, & your fur kids will enjoy it as much as you, if not more! Thank you again Chris & Charles, and for the funny stories too...
Second time staying here ;)
The rooms are also very clean !

Room Tip: All rooms are good, you won't be disappointed.

If you like to travel with your dog or dogs while enjoying all the wineries Rutherglen has to offer "Must Love Dogs" is the place for you Chris and Charlie made us all welcome from the moment we arrived with little treats for both us and the dogs on arrival, the accommodation is clean and comfy designed to make yourselves and the dogs feel at home the dogs have free reign of their own backyard and your suite. Chris and Charlie even doggy sat while we went out to dinner.Next morning we enjoyed a lovely cooked breakfast before departing an enjoyable time had by all.

My husband, Shorty our staffy and I had a lovely three night break in Rutherglen. Chris and Charlie were wonderful hosts and we all had a lovely time. The breakfasts were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. Shorty loved Chris' home made treats and there was plenty of outside space for him to roam around safely in the enclosed garden. We were greeted by our lovely hosts, delicious cupcakes and beautifully clean accommodation. Chris and Charlie's recommendations for outings and "dog-friendly" excursions were great and very much appreciated. This all made for a very enjoyable, relaxing and stress-free holiday. We'll definitely go back for another stay.

Just got back after our second trip there, hospitalality just as good if not better. Chris and Charles could not be better hosts. The breakfasts are amazing, we had them cook dinner one night highly recommended, no need to go down Main Street. No issues taking the dogs they probably better looked after than you are.
