We loved our stay and thought the place offered alot of class. Fire was fantastic and the ambiance was perfect to relax after a long lunch at Brown Brothers. Highly recommended and great host.

We spent one night at 1888 and it was the best evening away we've had so far. After spending the day at Brown Brothers we arrived at 1888 to find the fire place already lit for us and the entire place is even better than the photos. The bath is huge and the bed is extremely comfortable. Everything about the place is perfection. The high windows let in plenty of natural light but nobody can see in making you feel as though the world outside ceases to exist. Perfect for couples. Beautiful, romantic, cosy and comfortable. The host is wonderful and the supplied breakfast is everything you could want and more. Thank you Jill.

Amazing accommodation! The photos don't do it justice. One of the best Air BNB's we have stayed in. Such lovely decor, a beautiful setting and amazing wood fire not forgetting the free standing bath & king bed. Just bliss! Jill has a real eye for detail and takes a lot of care in maintaining and presenting the property. It is fully equipped with everything you need. This place is absolutely perfect. We will be back soon and would definitely recommend it to others.

Beautifully set-up place for a weekend away from Melbourne. Not too far, we got their at 8:30 on Friday night. The way they restored the building is fantastic, great bath and showers, lovely fireplace and comfy bed and keeping the original character of the building. We spent a rainy weekend here in August, and loved just relaxing and lounging around. The King River cafe has some very good food, which is a 2 minute walk up the road.

Such a cool place, the fire was going upon arrival, and we were comfortable and relaxed immediately. Great for a fun getaway close to home. Very highly recommended for those who seek something different. Thankyou!

Best Airbnb we have stayed in. Jill has created an incredibly tasteful space. It was a full moon, so it was almost magical watching the shadows play across the wall. Couldn't recommend a place more.
