This place is awesome. Views to Mt Macedon, goats and chickens to entertain. Very peaceful and relaxing. Great for a quiet getaway with adults only or with kids. We spent the whole day under the trees enjoying the views and relaxing. The house is all you need and the owners left us to ourselves. We will be back!!!!

Our week long stay was absolutely everything we expected - to be fair we had stayed here before so we knew what to expect. But that just goes to show that this place is worth coming back to for a clean homely feel. The fire was lit for a warm arrival and it was like coming home. We had everything for our craft retreat - space and a very inspiring environment both inside and out. Woodend is only a 10 min drive away and has much more on offer than we expected. The only disappoinment this trip was there were no young "kids" around. Thanks again Penny, we had a wonderful time even though it was cold for us Queenslanders.

Rather a tired home ,very suitable to family with children to enjoy a country outlook. Loads of things for them to use and enjoy. Not comfortable enough for a mature aged couples week-end.

Penny was very responsive to queries, the location was stunning and the kids really enjoyed meeting the animals. We felt the place itself had seen better days however and is in need of a thorough clean, update and some basic maintenance.

Thanks for your feedback Sasha and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. It is an older house and showing some signs of age but that is part of its character.

The cottage was beautiful and as described. Our family of four found the house big and very homely. It was very warm in the cold winter and the kids loved the farm animals. And it was so pet friendly. Thank you very much for a beautiful stay

Chanters Retreat is a large home great for large groups. The heating was on and wood fire lit well before we arrived late Friday night. The property was quiet and you wouldn't know that you were only an hour out of Melbourne. Penny was most helpful and we wiuld highly recommend staying here
