What are you waiting for?

The Trawool Cottages are beautifully decorated with cathedral ceilings, wood fires and your own private deck. Choose from our range of packages from accommodation only to the ultimate private spa room romantic getaway. So close to Melbourne, but a world away, our unique property offers heritage listed parkland setting, nestled in the historic Trawool valley.

We welcome you to our delightful property, with landscaped gardens, native bush, fantastic views of boulder strewn hills and abundant bird life. With the Goulburn River meandering through the valley, the opportunity is there to fish and we will cook up your catch for you. The Great Victorian Rail trail is also at our door, inviting you to walk or take our bikes and head along the largest rail trail in Victoria, passing through farms, traveling over bridges crossing rivers and creeks . The scenery is spectacular with picnic spots to stop and enjoy your ride.

Our cottages have an open plan design with large wooden beamed ceilings with high windows giving views of the trees and hills beyond. Sit on your private deck and enjoy a wine whilst overlooking the valley. If the weather turns cold snuggle up by the wood fire.

Come and stay, then dine in or enjoy our complimentary room service with meals of your choice from our extensive menu. We offer pet friendly in one of our cottages only, welcoming your pet inside. Please advise when booking.

Call us for more information on special packages for Romance, rates for corporate stays and our group booking deals.

See our website for current specials and updates.

In house catering

We offer our guests the choice of dining in our private dining room or complimentary room service. You can choose from our extensive menu and we cater for vegetarians, gluten free, children and special dietary requirements.

Whether it is a special occasion with a multi course menu or a family stay looking for fish and chips, we will work within your requirements.

For Romantic getaways and special occasions, we will set up the table in your cottage with flowers and candles and bring your dinner to you to enjoy in privacy.

About Lindy thomas

Bruce and lindy are pleased to welcome you to share our beautiful space.

Lindy thomas purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Lindy thomas chose Trawool

since 2009, we have enjoyed creating a place to relax, enjoy peace and quiet with wonderful views and plenty of nature. Our gardens are delightful with plenty of places to sit and relax, from the outdoor gazebo amongst heritage listed trees, to sunny open spaces overlooking the hills. Or enjoy our Asian inspired meditation outdoor room, or Spa room with thatched movable roof, allowing you to lay back and look at the stars.

What makes this cottage unique

Romantic, pet friendly, great service and food brought to you in the privacy of your cottage. Fabulous views over the hills and the rail trail for biking or hiking.

Would like to return one day, the cottage was clean and warm. Fire wood was supplied daily, the fire place did a fantastic job of heating the cottage. Great food and lovely hosts.

Owner's Response: Hi Michelle, Thanks for your review. Like you, most people love the fire, there is something quite mesmerising sitting in front of an open fire (especially with a nice glass of wine or port!!) Bruce

Great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late and there were chocolates and a decanter of port waiting for us!

We had forgotten to organise for an early breakfast but the guys were great and made us a really lovely brekkie nice and quickly.

The dogs loved the cottage almost as much as we did.

The cottages are central to the beautiful countryside & close to a town large enough to tend any needs. It was most enjoyable sitting on the balcony to eat breakfast at the cafe & enjoy the wonderful view.
