Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Great place for a getaway.

Set on the side of a hill, in the picturesque and historic town of Blackwood, only 1 hour from Melbourne, this cosy cottage is visited by kookaburras, magpies, sulfur crested cockatoos, apostle birds and the occasional black cockatoo. The cottage has been repainted inside, laundry refurbished and a new kitchen installed. There is a minimum of 2 nights stay.

There are original miners' log cabins in the main street which has barely changed since the late 1800's. As one guest said "How's the serenity"


The historic township of Blackwood is surrounded by spectacular forest full of memories of the gold rush era. it is one of Victoria's best kept secrets. Located in the main street is the Blackwood Hotel, est 1868, is the oldest weatherboard hotel with a continuous licence. There is also the general store with wonderful food, coffee and views. Further along the street are original log cabins built by miners. A photo in the hotel depicts the main street in the late 1800's and the street has is almost the same today. There are two different mineral springs down by the river. In a 10 min trip to Trentham you can visit waterfalls, a historic railway station,historic buildings, a wonderfull home decor shop and a dress shop with original designs and hand made materials. Another 20 or so kilometers there is Daylesford and Hepburn Springs with many attactions, restaurants, cafes and wineries, far too many to list here. If you haven't discovered Blackwood yet, it is time to add it to your experiences.

Very cosy getaway within a shortish drive of home.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed two days and nights at View Cottage - venturing out to walk between rainstorms and then returning to the fireside.

Comfortable and workable while clearly yesteryear.

View Cottage a Pleasure

  • 4 of 5

We had a couple of nights comfortable sleeping in the 3 bedroom Cottage. Queen, Double used the bunks we didn't use but loved the place. The sofa also has a fold out bed for larger numbers.

Quiet, Peaceful and Warm. The wide variety of Country Music Tapes were also a bonus.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. Good value for money. The house whilst "rustic" was spotlessly clean and well appointed. Nice walk to pub and merchant and close to caravan park.

Always a comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit, and we thoroughly enjoyed it...yet again. Blackwood is lovely and the cottage is very comfortable, but Daylesford & Ballarat are within easy driving distance.

Thank you for our very relaxing getaway.

Also, the Blackwood Merchant did a great breakfast with delicious coffee.
