We were made to feel right at home. The house was fantastic, very comfortable and enough space for everyone. I would recommend this place to my family and friends. Exceeded my expectations.

We enjoyed our stay, the beds were all so comfortable, place very clean with quirky vintage style. Extras provided by Marjorie were appreciated, bread, fruit, cereals, yoghurt, even juice-yum. Will definitely come again- bring bathers though next time as there’s a hot tub!!! Bendigo a great town to visit, loads to do.

Amazing property and very comfy house! The spa was great and the beds were comfy! I'll definitely be back. We loved the unique style of the place. Marjorie went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. I highly recommend this place to stay.

Marjorie's place is amazing. Very cosy and lots of things to do, places to be - jacuzzi took a while to heat up so we didn't end up using it as we got in quite late, but is definitely a draw card when looking for a place. Definitely recommend Marjorie's if you're looking for something out of Bendigo for a bit of peace and quiet!

Marjorie went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and at home. She made sure that we had our choice of fresh breakfast food throughout the week. It was like our home away from home and had everything we needed.

If you like a bush setting, birds and wildlife all within an easy commute of the Bendigo CBD; You will love this place. When you stay at Evolve, allow a little extra time to take in the facilities and enjoy the hospitality.

We had a great long weekend at Evolve B and B. Our boys loved the garden, the piano and the spa. It was a great winter warmer. The beds were very nice to sleep in and the view of the trees is nice. The addition of breakfast was a nice touch.
