“We’re so happy to have stayed in this unique house. Exceptional hospitality and a great space. Really thoughtful touches and lovely hosts. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Marion is actually the author of a very interesting book on the local area; it was an unexpected delight to find that in the house. One tip: see if you can time your stay towards the end of the week so you can make the most of the great restaurants in the area. Strongly recommended! We’ll certainly be repeat visitors.”

“Peaceful, romantic getaway. Our stay at Hillside was so much more than expected. Only 35min from the heart of Canberra. Just out of the delightful town of Gundaroo. Situated on a beautiful 160acre property of native and planted forest groves it abounds with nature, kangaroos, native birds, wombats and wallabies. There are walks thru the forest which Jan has clearly taken great care to clear signpost and there are boxes of (electric) candles, rugs bottles of water thoughtfully placed strategical though out the three walks. The property is dog friendly also with a seperate kennel area that is safe if you are going to a show or the gallery for the day. The generosity and friendliness of our host Jan is exceptional. The cottage is situated in a delightful garden and full of magical touches for a romantic getaway. Our bed was comfortable the ensuit shower great and all the comforts of a 5 star hotel. The cottage was hand made of stone and absolutely soundproof. We had an amazing sleep. Across the garden is a delightful sun room if you chose to stay in and has a beautiful aspect of the garden. If you chose to as Jan to make you a spectacular breakfast she serves it in the sun room. Jan offers a selection of catering options and her cooking is amazing! We had a continental breakfast in the garden one morning and a cooked breakfast the next. Jan gave us local tips for dinner which were fantastic. We had one of her wonderful beautiful cheese boards and a bottle of champagne over looking the valley with a stunning sunset and beautiful starlight night. There are no property’s giving off light in the area. Jan helped me arrange a very romantic proposal... a leap year proposal - he said yes! So I shall be undyingly great full. A thoughtful turndown service with rose petals was the icing on the cake.”
