Description from owner


Lakeside Cottage Luxury Bed and Breakfast Mt Dandenong, Yarra Ranges near Melbourne. A truly magnificent B&B. Stunningly beautiful both day and night!

Step inside the door to the irresistible smell of fragrant candles, freshly home baked bread and quiet music playing in the background - and spoil yourself.

Slip into a luxurious, fluffy bathrobe and fill the double spa with bubbles. Pop a cork, nibble on cheese and bickies, and just sink into serenity.

Graze through the fridge and discover the sumptuous array of breakfast provisions and whip up an espresso or a cappuccino, and then curl up together in front of the gas log fire and watch a 3D movie on the big screen T.V.

Sprawl on the couch in the sun-filled conservatory, open the doors to meet the breeze, and just relax, kick back on the king size bed, or be pampered with a massage.

The single cottage, specially designed and surrounded by five glorious acres of manicured botanical gardens with mountain views and a private lake, is the perfect secluded getaway. You’ll enjoy complete privacy and ambience - and no traffic noise.

Stroll through the gardens and picnic amongst the kookaburras and feed the baby ducklings. Roast marshmallows on the fire pit, or simply just sit and ‘be’ in the lakeside gazebo with the gently spinning windmill hypnotising your mind to turn off. At night the grounds are lit up to highlight the blossoms, the arch and swing bridges, the antique wagons and the fountain rippling the water - and you don’t have to share it with anyone.

Then wake up slowly and languish with a 12 noon checkout and amble through the roses once more before continuing on with your journey. You’re so close to so many attractions you won’t know where to begin.

Relax, unwind and remember what it is to just be the two of you!

It’s enough to make you go ahhhhhhhhhh.

Hidden from the world – yet within minutes of the Yarra Valley’s and Mount Dandenong’s finest restaurants, wineries and reception venues, classy tea rooms and easy country drives – you’ll find Lakeside Cottage. Described as the “most perfect, quiet and romantic accommodation destination you’ll find in picturesque surroundings” (by Eat Play Stay on Channel 9), you’ll marvel at the glorious setting, petal-ed with colour, as the ideal place for a marriage proposal, an anniversary, a special celebration, your wedding night, or even the night before your wedding with your bridesmaids. Consider eloping to Lakeside Cottage, or use the grounds for your wedding or debutante photos.

A bed and breakfast paradise only thirty minutes from Melbourne’s CBD.

A place to remember.

A place for romance.

A place to refresh.

Response from the owner I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay here, especially when you wanted to book next years anniversary here already. I know you appreciated the 12 noon checkout. As you arrived late after your wedding, you could at least make the most of a leisurely breakfast and some of the gardens before you needed to leave. I have just planted 65 water lilies in the lake which I hope will be in flower next year for you to enjoy. I'll put in an order for some good weather too.

Response from the owner So pleased you loved our piece of paradise. Yes, the gardens will only get better from now on with the blossom filling the gardens with colour. We will have new magnolia's and roses in flower for the first time this year. I like to have something new to see for our returning guests and this season it's definitely the lights on the bridge and gazebo. I have more surprises planned so stayed tuned for updates.
