Weitere wichtige Infos
We offer more than just a bed and breakfast. On a number of occasions we have had guests who don't have a car so we have dropped them off to the railway station and have driven them up to Sassafras in the Dandenongs and Sherbrooke Forest when we have been around to do so.
We have maps and lots of inforrmation on sights and places to go in the area. We try to do that bit extra to help people have an enjoyable stay and a memorable trip. Let us know if you are staying for a special occasion so that we can organise something special for you.
