Beautiful comfy Dandenongs accommodation with something for everyone! (Booking.com review)

Carmel has really thought of everything at this property and gone out of her ready to give an amazing experience for her guests whatever the demographic! We travelled with a 3 year old and 18 month old and it was amazing that there were toys and books in storage that the kids could pull out and play with which was so helpful for us as it was raining!! Also Netflix on two different tv's was also super helpful on a rainy afternoon! The girls loved exploring the garden even in the rain and loved looking at all the different fairies and gnomes (or Santa's as my 18 month-old excitedly exclaimed!!) The bed was incredibly comfortable with all kinds of different options for pillows and we enjoyed the bath too! Breakfast was great and we managed to get delicious pizza from a local pizza pasta place for dinner. Carmel's online guidebook was very helpful. I highly recommend Ferny Hill retreat!!

Would stay here again in a heartbeat! (AirBnB review)

Carmel was one of the best hosts I’ve ever met! This place is comfy and stylish and perfect for a relaxing trip to the mountains. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Serenity! (In-house guest book)

Had a lovely stay. We really needed a night away from the kids LOL. What a beautiful little place you have here. Definite serenity! Thank you, Carmel. Will be back at some stage :)

A great little cottage (In-house guest book)

Here for work. For me, it was perfectly located, comfortable, clean and nothing wanting. A great little cottage and I fed the ducks in the lake! Thanks Carmel

Tranquility (In-house guest book)

We had a great time. The tranquillity, fresh air (and rain) was just what we needed after 2020! This is a home away from home. Thanks Carmel :)
