Sharon - October 2015

Our hosts, Kerry & Peter, made us feel very welcome and are warm, friendly people, that you feel like you have known for ages.  Sage Cottage is a lovely warm, roomy and bright cottage and was as we imagined from the listing description.  The location is close to the shops and although it is near the highway, it is hidden away and is very quiet and private.  All modern cons are available and lots of food for breakfast was provided. The laundry facilities were also great. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts.  

Jeremy - December 2015

The gang and I loved our stay at 'Sage Cottage'.  The location was great - right on the edge of town and very close to the wineries - the accommodation was excellent, and the great basket of breakfast and snack supplies, including chocolates that Kerry had stocked the house with for our arrival was extremely generous.  We all had a great stay and will return!! Thanks also for the sharing your tips on local activities, cafes and wineries.  Thank you Kerry and Pete.  Cheers Jeremy.

Alex & family - December 2015

'Olde worlde' in Lilydale was a dream come true for all of us.  The house is very beautiful and has a true country feel to it.  Kerry's quality of service is of a high standard.  Upon arrival and departure, it was first class-service to us.  We were contacted prior to our arrival, as well as afterwards.  The kids (4 and 8) loved the house and did not want to leave.  Yarra Valley will always be remembered because of that house!  Thank you Kerry!!

Myrna & family - January 2016

Kerry & Peter made our family (who came in three separate groups on X'mas eve) very welcome.  The cottage was perfect for us (3 couples, a toddler and a baby), well fitted out and even decorated for X'mas.  We made friends with Kerry's menagerie (2 chickens, a rabbit and a pig). Scarlett our 20 month old toddler was especially delighted, I think she wanted to take them home with her.  We had a wonderful X'mas, with lunch cooked in the beauttiful kitchen. We all felt at home and the week passed too quickly, if not for previous arrangements, we would have stayed longer.  Very highly recommended, in fact we have already told all our friends.

Organised this accommodation last minute as we had a Wedding in the Yarra Valley.  My first impression was related to the warm and prompt messages I received from Kerry.  She was happy to offer some tips on travelling to the reception, also provided us with a tray of breakfast snacks and late night nibbles in case we got home and were a little peckish. The house was clean, organised and perfect for what we needed.  On departure in the morning, she kindly popped in to see how we were travelling.  Beautiful host and beautiful house.

Xintong - June 2016

Kerry is really friendly and they provided a range of free food and snacks for us.  The house is really nice and clean.  I fell in love with the house at the moment I stepped in.  Thanks for everything.  It was such a lovely weekend staying there.

What a beautiful house you have. Eveything you need is there and ready! We will definitely be staying with you again the next time we are in the Valley.  Thank you so much for the late check out!!

Erin - December 2016

Kerry is an excellent host and our stay at her cottage was perfect.  We were warmly welcomed on arrival and enjoyed our time in the beautiful, charming and inviting rooms.  Every amenity was catered for, with thoughtful additions throughout.  The beds were comfortable and cosy, the home was clean and neat, and wonderfully decorated.  The area had much to offer, including a lovely short strill to the shops and Lilydale Lake for those keen to get active, as well as more than sufficient to remain well-entertained at home.  Kerry, thank you for sharing your place with us.  We'd come back in a heartbeat. :)

Sam - February 2017

Kerry has been an amazing host in what can only be described as a five star property in a beautiful location.  Do yourself a favour when you stay and wander up to admire the homestead and the lovely grounds.  Everything is first class and you will feel so special.  Can't wait to return.

Jackie - March 2017

This is an exceptionally high standard property.  Kerry's attention to detail is outstanding.  I would thoroughly recommend this property.  It was truly a 5 star get away.  Kerry, you have created a little piece of heaven and we felt completely at home.  We really appreciated all your attention to detail.  Your property is beautiful.

Peter - April 2017

A beautifully set up place for a larger group.  We had three couples attending a wedding nearby and we all fitted very comfortably.  The facilities and amenities were great, and communication with Kerry was easy and clear.  Delightful surroundings!!

Cameron - April 2017

Our visit to Sage cottage was fantastic.  The cottage was well appointed (it has absolutely everything you could possible need).  It's very warm and comfortable and in a very quiet and relaxing location.  It's also just minutes from the Yarra Valley which is very convenient for a wine tasting getaway.  Kerry was a fantastic host, checking in to make sure that we had everything we needed.  I can't recommend this place enough.  We'll definitely be back.
