Matilda Cottage - quiet rural location
average rating of 4.870968 based on 31 reviews

The Cottage was exceptional. Very clean, very well equipped -they thought of everything. So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is a retreat. A great place to relax. Surrounded by Gum trees, we saw Kangaroos, Wallabies and abundant bird life. Decks north and east to take this in, and being elevated on a ridge line you have views of the city skyline through the trees to the south east. Close to the pretty town of Gisborne, and a gateway to the rest of the the Macedon Shire.

And our Hosts were just great!

I highly recommend this property.

Quiet country accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Matilda Cottage is a lovely accommodation to take time out and relax. Watching the Melbourne lights from the deck was a great pass time to do at Happy hour. If you don't want to travel to far for a weekend break, we would highly recommend Matilda Cottage.

Peaceful stopover

  • 5 of 5

Matilda Cottage is a beautiful place: very calm and quiet. The cottage itself is very well set up with everything you could need. The beds and linen are soft and comfortable. The property was perfectly clean and fresh. We were sad to only be stopping in for the night but will certainly stay again on our next trip.
