What my clients say

  • August 2021

    Firstly, Jenny the owner is just a lovely person to meet and chat to but she really went above and beyond for my family. After our car broke down in a cloud of smoke on our way to check in after dark, she offered to come collect us and all our belongings. Which for a week long ski trip, plus a 2yo toddler in tow you can imagine how packed our 4WD was! We were so incredibly grateful for her generosity. And secondly to the accommodation, the cottages are on such a beautiful property with a small stream running through it. The cottages have everything you need, very clean and excellent value so close to the hills. Definitely recommend and no doubt this will be our go to place to stay when visiting Mt Beauty.

    The owners and staff are very friendly and very supportive. The units are very comfortable and much more spacious than anything else close to Falls Creek, especially for the price. The outlook across the creek and bush is beautiful. Very cosy and warm unit.

    Jenny and Andy were the nicest owners - friendly, helpful and available almost instantly. The environment was peaceful and walks were a pleasure, despite the poor weather. Autumn leaves were in abundance and just stunning in Mt Beauty/Bright and Harrietville. If you are wanting to go to Falls Creek for the day, Mt Beauty is a good starting point as you cut off the extra half hour's drive between here and Bright. We would not hesitate staying here again if and when we are visiting Mt Beauty.

    Thank you Jenny for making our stay wonderful. The place was clean when we arrived same as photos on the website. Also, thank you for staying up late to welcome us. Perfect place for a nice weekend getaway. Very very scenic and quiet.

    The cottages were so comfy even in cold weather. If you want to cook or fix up a quick brekkie NO PROBLEM. Just around 30mins drive to Bright town which is also a beautiful ride and you’ll get to a place for your bucket shot (trust me). JENNY, what a lovely person always with a pleasant smile. She helps a lot, and understandable. The main reason to leave this review is Jenny, the owner.

    Cute, cosy little cottages hidden away tucked just out of town surrounded by beautiful bushland and a constantly flowing river which added to the serenity! Will be returning! The owners (well, we only dealt with jenny), she was helpful, kind, polite, had local knowledge dating back to her childhood which was comforting to know.

  • April 2021

    We had the most wonderful time staying at Kiewa Cottages, and exploring the stunning spaces in and around Mt Beauty. Your accommodation was so refreshing, clean and relaxing. It was wonderful to be surrounded by nature, sitting by your stream listening to it's waters as it ran over rocks, waking up each morning to natures orchestra, such a treat in an otherwise busy life.

    We loved meeting and chatting with you both, and we hope to again come and stay at the cottages as it really was such a joy. Thank you, thank you, thank you :)

    We have an amazing time. The hosts were fantastic. They offered to drive us to and pick us up from our anniversary dinner. They are so thoughtful, sending us a message offering to setup the fire for us so we can come back to a warm place. The accomodation has a great view and has every amenities we ever needed for our stay. It was very clean and comfortable. Highly recommend

    Classic, simple accommodation in a really lovely spot in between Tawonga and Mt. Beauty overlooking one of those really magical alpine creeks. Really can't fault it at all. Jenny is a wonderful host who looked after all of us spread over 3 rooms — called us ahead of time to make sure she could turn the heaters on in anticipation of our arrival. Booked already for next year 👍

  • July 2021

    We met Jenny who owns/manages the cottages with her husband - she was so kind and helpful. The place is great, can’t fault it at all. The cottage we stayed in was newly reno’d with all the nice conveniences. They obviously put their heart into it. Rooms were lovely, warm and cozy. Nothing skimped if you wanted to cook or prepare your own meals, good heating, wifi and all that. Best and most stand out feature was her approachability and eagerness to help. Had a great two nights!

    Jenny and Andy were amazing hosts and the location and facilities were perfect. Only 40mins drive up to Falls Creek mountain to snowboard, and also a lot of hikes around for summer time too. We can’t wait to come back! 

    Hanna (Booking.com)
  • August 2021

    I loved that it was slightly tucked away from the main road. There was so traffic noise, just the sound of the river and kookaburras. Amazing location, Beautiful property, and lovely staff.

    The room i stayed in at Kiewa country cottages was perfectly sized for me and my partner. The room was clean and well equipped with toiletries, extra blankets and all the kitchen supplies needed (even a complimentary bath bomb for the spa bath). I travelled during a cold spike but when i arrived at the cottages they had already turned on the heater to make the cottage warm and inviting for when i arrived. I loved everything about my stay at Kiewa country cottages. The View from the cottage was nature filled and beautiful. There was even a little nature walk along the stream at the bottom of the property. so beautiful!

    My wife and I had the pleasure of staying a couple of nights at the Kiewa Country Cottages while en route to Falls Creek for a few days in the snow. Jenny, our wonderful hostess was so warm and accommodating even offering to pre warm our unit prior to our arrival on a wet and cold winters evening. The cottage was cosy and inviting when we arrived and we were impressed with Jenny's easy check in and personalised service. Our accomodation could not have been any cleaner. We are planning a return visit later in the year. This is a great place to stay and we highly recommend it if you are looking for some warmth and comfort in Mt Beauty

  • November 2021

    We absolutely loved our stay at Kiewa Country Cottages, nature on my doorstep and the views are just breathtaking. Our host Jenny was just amazing, very friendly and went out of her way to help us feel comfortable. The cabin was spotless. We can't recommend this cottage enough! We can't wait to visit again!

    Marijana (Booking.com)
  • November 2021

    Beautiful apartments, very clean, beautiful surrounds. Fire pit was amazing. There's even a little spot to sit by a creek for zen peacefulness... or a beer/glass of wine. Got pretty chilly but Jenny was quick to rectify. In fact Jenny was a near perfect host: attentive, empathic, funny and fun but not in your face and respecting boundaries quite nicely. We will definitely stay here next time we stay in Mt Beauty/Tawonga

    Jarrod (Booking.com)
  • November 2021

    We stayed 3 nights here and it was possibly one of the best stays we have had anywhere. Jenny is such a good host. Super helpful and went out of her way to assist in a birthday surprise for my partner. Will definitely be staying again. Such a beautiful place to stay. 10/10 thanks so much Jenny.

    Easy to get too with ample parking. The grounds are spectacular and beautifully maintained. The unit had nicely renovated bathrooms, and everything you need for a comfortable stay. Will be going back soon!

    Fantastic place to stay! 
    We had the most wonderful stay at Kiewa Countey Cottages with our two children. Jenny went over and above to make us feel welcome (Colouring in pages for the kids, excellent local tips and suggestions for us). Lying in bed you can see the snow on Falls Creek through the established gums. The kids spent endless hours exploring the property and spotting the local wildlife! We will be back again for sure!

  • October 2021

    Fantastic. We were honestly lucky to find this place. No plans and no preferences, we just happened to book. I've stayed in a LOT of hotels for work, cumulative years. And this would easily be the most welcoming. It's picturesque and relaxing and a great place to base yourself to check out the area. We'll be back!

    Jesse (Google My Business)
  • November 2021

    I wanted to stay forever: it was peaceful and quiet, away from roads and car, the loudest noise was the creek in the distance and the birds in the trees.

    John (Booking.com)
  • November 2021

    Absolutely fantastic place to stay. Comfortable and very clean. Beautiful well kept gardens with stunning views of mountains. Friendly helpful and welcoming staff. Will go back and stay again

    Jenny was an incredible host, and has done a wonderful job since taking over the property. We had a fantastic time! The house had everything we needed and the gardens and creek were stunning. We will definitely be back, hopefully for longer.
