About John and Anne Atkins

Anne and I (john) are passionate about Shady Brook. We believe we have develop a magnificent garden in a very unique location which we love to share with others. We are passionate gardeners, and enjoy the pristine mountain environment we live in. We are both involved in our local community and believe life is found in giving. Anne has poultry which adds to the setting as they wander through the gardens. We wanted to developed something that was more than just accommodation but an experience that will last and be shared. Anne and I do all our own maintenance and cleaning to ensure the highest standard.

shady brook is set in an unique spot right on the Ovens river on fertile river flat with very steep mountain taking off at the rear of our property. This has enabled us to develop lush special gardens with a fantastic array of autumn and spring colour, summer also with hydrangeas and dahlias and others also compete in this regard.S

Your cottage is craftsmen built by local builders on an alpine style to complement the environment in which we live.
