Pretty Cottage, built in c.1880, lies in the historic gold fields town of Talbot. Lovingly restored with period features, the cottage sits just a short distance from the centre of the town. The town boasts a monthly Craft and Farmers' Market, an award winning Provedore and Eatery, an observatory, pub, book store, vintage shops, post office/general store and is close to the Pyrennees and other beautiful wine producing areas. Your stay includes a full breakfast to cook and eat at your leisure.
“My mother and I stayed at Pretty Cottage for a mother-daughter getaway. Upon stepping into Pretty Cottage we were greeted with beautiful scents of lemon myrtle and stylish furnishings/decor. The amenities including breakfast ingredients, toiletries and linens were all very much appreciated. We were lucky enough to enjoy the Talbot Market right at our doorstep during our stay, which definitely one of the best markets we've been to thus far. The cottage has all the luxury of a five star hotel, nestled in the quiet town of Talbot. We really couldn't fault our experience in Talbot, Gina was quick to respond and has provided a beautiful and warm cottage experience with all the creature comforts you could hope for. Pretty Cottage really is a credit to you Gina, we will be back!”
Our delightful 2 bedroom self contained cottage called Bonnie Views has unparalleled views. All the conveniences you could want and hosts that will familiarise you with the area they love. The cottage is set high on a hill in the superb historic township of Clunes. Clunes hosts many annual events including Booktown in May each year, which is an international event. Our cafes, hotel and local shops are brimming with signs of welcome. So why not come and see for yourself!
“Bonnie View Cottage is outstanding. It is so clean, and everything works. The location is perfect if you want peace and quiet, perhaps to break up a road trip in the area. Clunes is a sleepy little place but the local pub (The National Hotel 'The Nash') comes alive in the evenings and does great food at great value prices. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen and bathroom are clean and the the Wifi - despite the rurality - is fast and stable. There's also A/C - and the view from the verandah is divine, especially at sunset! The last 300m or so of access from the main road to the cottage is along an unsealed road, however our small-ish car coped fine just take it steady over the corrugations. Would 100% recommend Bonnie View Cottage, it was a shame it was just for the one night!”

“My family and I loved our stay at Diane's place. Even thought the weather was terrible we were really cozy with the wood heater and the split system as a backup. There was heaps for our toddler to do and he loved having the horses so close. The kitchen had everything we needed for the three nights we stayed and everything was clean and tidy on arrival. Diane was really responsive and easy to communicate with. The location was also great, with Talbot and Clunes so close and Maryborough an easy drive as a bigger centre. We'd definitely stay again next time we're in the area. Thanks again Diane!”
