Hi, we are a couple in our early 60's with 2 grown-up children.
When not travelling the world, we enjoy bush walking, reading and relaxing at our holiday house in Blackwood, Victoria.

Chivy chase is the cutest little place in the woods. Really character and charm. The five of us had a wonderful stay. The open fire place is amazing. I can see why people want to sleep in that room!!
We loved our two-night stay in the miner's cottage. It was exactly the sort of authentic, no-frills weekender experience we wanted. The old wattle-and-daub cottage is very atmospheric. You can't help but imagine the lives of the tough, hard-working people who sought to make a living from gold mining, all those years ago. Blackwood is a lovely spot and really worth a visit.
The listing was very accurate! It's s simple place surrounded by bush.
Great stay at the Old Miner's Cottage. Colin and Joy provided extensive directions and details, so finding it was no trouble. Cosy and comfortable, the cottage made a great base to explore the surrounding area, and a welcoming space to return to after a day out.
We loved our stay at Blackwood! It is such a magical spot tucked in amongst the forest with a plethora of bush walks in the area. Joy & Colin have been fantastic from the get-go, with regular communication and being especially accommodating (organising an extra bed and helping out with the return of a forgotten bottle of whisky!). The cabin is super cosy and clean and hospitable - the open fire a particular treat :) Highly recommend.
Great stay. Close to all the action near daylesford but quiet enough for some seclusion and tranquility
We had a fantastic time at the cabin. There is a lot to do in the area and we made the most of that. A visit to Red Beard bakery was delicious and the bread was the best sourdough I think I've ever eaten. Also Garden of St Erth was delightful and inspired me to do more gardening! The cabin was well set up and perfect for a cosy gathering of friends. Thank-you
Colin and Joy's cabin was the perfect place for a weekend getaway. We had a great weekend with a few friends by the fire, nice bush walks and a cafe just down the road. Everything was comfortable and the whole trip was seamless with Colin and Joys info and help along the way. We will definitely be keeping this on on the favorites list!
Staying at Colin & Joy's cabin and Blackwood was a delightful weekend away. Great communication from start to finish made the place easy to find and get into. The cabin, location and log-fire lived up to all expectations. Plenty of firewood ready and waiting, cabin equipped with everything we might need, sun room that really did trap the sun and warm up even when it was freezing (snow temperatures!) outside. Oh, and an amazing selection of teas in the cabin!
A few hundred metres walk to St Erth garden and cafe, walking tracks in Wombat forest (we saw kangaroos but no wombats) and the tiny Blackwood township. Cosy, simple, tranquil. We loved it so much we abandoned plans to visit Daylesford and Ballarat and just stayed in Blackwood, walking and hanging out in front of the fire.
I found this to be a fantastic place to stay. The cabin is charming and cosy, and the surrounding bushland is spectacular. It felt like a real getaway, very peaceful and serene. Colin and Joy were great hosts - they were very responsive and made sure I was OK with getting to the cabin.
Great guests. Welcome anytime.
Colin and his wife were just very nice guests! They are very friendly and gently! They took care of everything and they left the apartment very clean!!!!It was a big pleasure having them as my guests. I highly recommend hosting them!!!!They are always welcome to stay at my apartment again.
The staff informed me that Colin was a very polite guest.
