Interaction with Guests
Interaction is up to you. Very happy to interact or to leave you in complete privacy.
We live in a very lush area here in the Dandenong Ranges. Native birds are part of the setting and they'll visit your patio most days. Puffing Billy, Trees Adventure Park and Grant's Picnic ground are walking distance ... but maybe take a 5 minute drive there. Short drives also to Burnham Piggery, Kallista, Sassafras and Olinda. Lots of amazing hikes and drives through mountain ash and fern forests.
We are very lucky at our location. At the Belgrave train station there are many buses that will take you anywhere you'd like to go. And it's 1 hour by train into the city of Melbourne.

A cosy and comfortable space for us to relax away from the city with beautiful garden views and all the comforts of home! Very clean and organised and Margaret is very helpful and friendly :)
The suite was fantastic and nested in the middle of a beautiful garden. It provides plenty of privacy with its own entrance. Our host Margaret was most helpful and the only regret we have is that we only stayed one night! We will be back and hopefully that time for a bit longer!
We had a great stay at the stones throw cottages. The room was very cosy and well eqipped and looked out over Margaret's lovely garden. She made us feel at home, and gave us some bird seed to feed the birds that visited the balcony. If you are looking for a place to stay in Belgrave, I would highly recommend this place.
We had such an awesome time here and Margaret let us very clear instructions on how to enter the cottage.
It was super clean which I love and the bed was so comfortable.
It was so peaceful.
We loved it.
My partner and I both thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the suite at Stone's Throw Cottage. Margaret was an attentive, helpful host, but we also felt we had plenty of privacy and independence. The cottage is very nice, and only a five minute walk (at most) to Belgrave's main street.
I would definitely recommend Stones Throw Cottage without hesitation. Maragaret was the epitome of a lovely and thoughtful hostess. It clean, quiet, very comfortable and nestled amongst a spectacular garden. I'll be back :)

About the Host, Margaret
I love Melbourne!! And happily run a B&B now after being in the fashion industry for years. Love meeting people from all over the world and hearing about their lives and travels. Personal travel can be difficult sometimes but we manage to get away a couple of times a year. I lived in the US for 23 yrs so I travel there a lot to visit friends and family.
Love being an AIRBNB host. Itry to keep my cottage and private suite in tip top condition with all the little necessities that I can think of to make your stay comfortable. I've lived in the area here in the Dandenong Ranges for 14 years and have a very extensive knowledge of what you should experience while here. There are lots of wonderful things to do and some fabulous restaurants too. I'll help you in any way I can. So come visit Belgrave.
