This cottage is ideal for families or couples wanting the secluded weekend. It’s tucked into the base of the mountain with your own fern gully that intertwines into natural bush whilst in front there are spacious lawns, landscaped gardens and tables to enjoy the fresh alpine air.

Bathe in the morning sun and in the afternoon capture the sunset on the ridges of Mt Feathertop disappearing slowly while enjoying a lazy beverage. Watch parrots as they feed nearby or listen to the multitude of bird including lyrebirds as they come down along the tracks in search of food. In the early morning or late evening wallabies maybe sighted while they gleam on green pickings around the base of the mountain.

During the day take a stroll over five acres of landscaped gardens, walk along the branch of the Ovens River and discover what this lush village has to offer. Take one of the private walking tracks on the mountain behind you that climbs to an amazing vista view of the village below or the snow capped peaks. Or simply put your feet up, relax and enjoy.

It is an easy walk or ride to the village of Harrietville only 0.5km away so there is no need to get back into the car once you arrive just head out to discover. There are many walking tracks along the Ovens River, or longer trails located around the village that will take you into the Alpine National Parks.  Trails to the Tronoh Dredge hole and surrounds will take you along the Ovens to amazing swimming and fishing holes. Or bike it along the “Shared Trail” to the Trout farm. There are walks and rides for all ages and fitness including those who wish to take of the challenge of Feathertop and beyond to Hotham Heights.
