*As seen in The Logbook
Set in a ten-acre hobby farm in the Victorian Dandenong Ranges, about an hour east of Melbourne in Australia, is Emerald Ridge Bed and Breakfast. Run and owned by Rebecca Milson and her husband, it is a stylish, fully equipped two-bedroom cottage that is completely self-contained and benefits from an open plan living and neutral décor.
The stunning views and the comforting tones of the location have made Emerald Ridge a favourite for couples seeking a romantic weekend away, or those seeking a relaxing game of golf or visitors to the Emerald Village.
The Cottage has two comfortable bedrooms, both with Queen sized beds fitted with crisp 100% cotton white sheets. The rooms can sleep up to six people as a single trundle and mattress can be added to the floor.
The bathroom is spacious and modern with a double shower, double vanity and a heated towel rail. White goods such as washing machine, laundry trough and ironing board are also provided.
The kitchen is fully equipped and suitable for amateur cooks and professional chefs, benefitting from oven, stove, dishwasher and microwave. The lounge is cosy and heated with a warm gas flame log fire (with air-conditioning for the summer), a flat screen TV, books, magazine, games, music and WIFI.
Outside there is a rear deck where guests can find the BBQ, and this is accessible from both rooms and allows the opportunity to enjoy the stunning views and watch the animals in the Valley.
The private Guest Room offers a King size bed also fitted with 100% cotton quality sheets and sleeps two. It comes with its own spacious lounge area which has a pair of winged-back armchairs, coffee table and large flat screen TV. The kitchenette includes a coffee pod machine, kettle, toaster and bar fridge. The spacious ensuite comes with a double shower and a spa.
Rebecca welcomes every guest personally and all stays include a breakfast hamper consisting of fruit, cereal, yoghurt, bread, bacon and an optional selection of free-range eggs. Espresso pod coffee and a range of teas are also available.
