Caroline thank you for this beautiful place. The welcome sign when we got here, the beautiful smell of the oil burner, the decor and the spa and the lights at night are spectacular. The singing of the birds, the view, eating breakfast out here in this gorgeous scenery and the Serenity. Bed was so comfortable and I think we only got out of our robes to get tea and when we were in the spa. And of course, our massages. Thank you so much xxx

Thank you for the lovely hospitality during our stay. Your attention to detail & hospitality are second to none. Everything was perfect, clean, quiet, we couldn't have asked for anything more. The bed is like sleeping on a cloud, and nothing beats the spa for a relaxing wind down at the end of the day. We will definitely return for a longer stay.


This place is stunning! What a fabulous getaway from working in the city. You were so graciously accommodating & everything in the suite was perfect. Loved the vienna bread! Sitting on the deck looking out to the bush is so peaceful & breathtaking. Thank you so much, we will be back!


Thank you for providing us with a perfect mid-week getaway. We had a great time in your B&B, everything was splendid and your attention to detail is unmatched. We loved the hi-tech gadgets combined with the peace & quiet that this place provides. We also thank you for your 5 star hostpitality and for going the extra mile for Rocky as well.





Please take a moment to read what some of our wonderful guests have to say about us......

We had a relaxing 2 days here at the retreat and loved the peace and quiet. The chatting birds and sounds of the trees were some of the highlights of our stay. The perfect tonic for city folk to unwind and de-stress! Will be sure to reccommend to all our family & friends.

We had an amazing time here, just what we needed, relaxation and quietness. Such a beautiful spot and your little touches to the place made it even more special. We will be back....

Wow! What a perfect way to spend my 40th birthday. Your Retreat is breathtaking with views to die for. Your hospitality was splendid & to have a brand new, sparkling hydrotherapy spa bath to step into on the morning of my birthday was the icing on the cake. The bed was delightful, like a warm, soft , fluffy cloud- hard to get out of. Music playlists & movie libraby selection never ending. Nothing compares to this place. Can't wait to come back and stay longer. Thank you for making my special day one to remember always....

We'd love to say thank you for letting us into what is a stunning place. It was perfect to get away from reality & relax in such a peaceful setting. Everything was spotless. Comfy bed & the spa was awesome. Will definitely recommend.

What a beautiful and relaxing place to stay. All the fine details have been though about. Spa was amazing, fire great & to wake up to the birds chirping away was fantastic. Thank you

Mt Evelyn Retreat is perfect! The tranquillity, the lush green forest, the bird song... it was just beautiful! A welcome break and very much needed respite from the hustle and bustle of city life – we LOVED it! Despite being in the country there’s not a chintzy item in sight - it has all the sheen, polish and luxury we’d expect in any boutique city hotel. The private outdoor spa, surrounded by trees, made our twilight dip under the stars a truly romantic experience. Hosts, Caroline and Gareth, have thought of everything- candles, chocolates, robes, outdoor fire, amazing movie library etc... The personal touch of a welcome sign made us certain we’d picked the best place ever to celebrate our anniversary. Can’t wait to return next year….and the year after…and the year after…..


This is my second time at your beautiful B&B. There is no better place to stay to get away from the city life. Looking forward to coming back again with my husband for a romantic night.

Thank you, Caroline & Gareth for an amazing stay. What a beautiful place to get away & relax from kids & husbands! The welcoming sign was a wonderful touch. You supplied us with all the information we needed and were very helpul. It was lovely also that you thought of us and our kids, with Gareth bringing us the home phone so we could call our kids at bed time. It was very sweet & thoughtful. The spa was amazing and oh so relaxing. The minor details you have in the suite & the bathroom were also wonderful touches. Looking forward to returning with my husband one day, hopefully soon.

Dear Caroline & Gareth, So glad to have found you. Perfect anniversary night. The suite is amazing-spa, bed, little touches all contributing to a wonderful retreat. Thank you, will definitely reccommend.

We cannot thank you enough for the stay in your stunning B&B. The hospitality & the beauty of the surrounds is unrivalled.

The words cannot describe this amazing, beautiful & peaceful sanctuary. Loved it and will cherish it in my mind forever.

Thank you for opening up your beautiful getaway. It is simply magical. From the view, to the spa & the suite, all were fantastic. There is nothing that you haven't covered. Will be recommending to friends & family.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here at Mount Evelyn. Caroline & Gareth are ideal hosts, very welcoming & informative. We loved having breakfast on the deck before starting our day. The Warburton rail trail is around the corner & it's a perfect finish to jump in the spa after our 35km ride! The apple tv is awesome for entertainment. Caroline thought of everything possible & made our stay even more pleasant- the chocolates, our names on the board & the music upon arrival were very nice touches. We will highly recommend and hopefully will be back ourselves someday soon!

Thank you Caroline & Family for welcoming us in to your getaway home, it was exactly what we needed. We were absolutely amazed at the view that surrounded us throughout the two days that we stayed. We enjoyed the local sights such as Mount Dandenong, it was fantastic! You welcomed us with open arms and we felt extremely welcome, we had everything we needed already available to us so we really appreciated your hospitality. The welcoming sign on arrival was such a beautiful idea, it made us feel at home. We will definitely be letting others know about Mount Evelyn Retreat and you guys will be seeing us again very soon!! We loved our holiday and it will definitely be an amazing experience that we'll always remember.

We loved our stay at Mount Evelyn Retreat. The suite is very private from the main house, comfortable and well furnished with everything we needed. Relaxing in the spa at the end of a busy day as the sun set behind the forest was a real luxury. We slept extremely well! We saw Powerful Owls roosting in the trees and a whole variety of other birds during our stay. Lots to do including walks, bike rides, wineries, gardens, villages, etc. within a short distance of the house. Highly recommended.

What an amazing, relaxing time we've had. Caroline's help before we arrived was truly unexpected making our entire stay very memorable. Everything in the suite has certainly been well thought through. We will definitely be recommending this place to friends & family. Scenery is such a bonus!! Thank you for having us.

What a beautiful place Caroline, Gareth & family have created. We all had an amazing girly night, having a BBQ, enjoying a few drinks, loving the jacuzzi, amazing views & great entertainment (apple tv). Love all the little touches you have put into your B&B and as soon as I can I will be back with my husband. PS: I love the entry, nice welcome touch. See you again soon.

Thank you for an amzing/relaxing time away Caroline, you were more than helpful. This place os so relaxing and has so much to do. The jacuzzi is a must after a big bush walk and I would check out the Cuckoo Restaurant. Once again Caroline, thank you for being a great host.

Thank you Caroline for such an amzing night away! That jacuzzi was GREAT & the hospitality was impeccable. The scenery was great and we will definitely be coming back.
