Adored our post holiday getaway!

4.8 on January 03, 2015

We just returned from a 2 night stay and have nothing but great things to say about the Australian Walkabout. We stayed in the cottage and enjoyed the privacy and hot tub! Breakfast was delicious both mornings and consisted of 2 courses. Lynne and Bob were great hosts and fun to talk to. Do yourself a favor and book a massage. My husband and I agree it was probably the best massage we've ever had (Steve was my masseuse and Roz was my husband's). We enthusiastically recommend the Australian Walkabout!

Felt welcome from the beginning

This stay was my husband and my first stay at a B&B. We stayed in the cottage which was so quaint and cozy! From the relaxing hot tub soaks to the glorious breakfast, this B&B will surely see us again. I recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for that escape from the usual grind while keeping the feel of "home." Thank you again, Lynne, for your hospitality!

I loved the Australian Walkabout Inn!
