The space

The cottage is situated amongst 1/2 acre of peaceful cottage gardens.
Either the North or deep West facing verandah make a pleasant places to sit and unwind with a good book, coffee or glass of wine.
Step inside Martin on Main and you will be greeted by a sunny breakfast room, well appointed country style kitchen and cosy lounge with wood fired heater, games and books.
The bedrooms are extremely snug with comfy beds, fine linen and plump Doona's.
The newly renovated sleek white bathroom with shower over bath also offers a washing machine for those outdoor adventures.
Martin on Main is a ridiculously short stroll to Blackwood Hotel.
It is an extremely quiet and comfortable space with wonderful views of Blue Mount to the North and the Lerderderg Bush Reserve to the East, bird life abounds.
