This unedited guest review appeared online describing Hazelwood beautifully.
"Clean, comfortable and well set up, with everything you might need at hand. Great for families and large groups and well serviced for its size with several bathrooms, a split system as well as a wood fire to sit around in the colder months.
There's a big dining table for sharing meals, playing board games (provided) or admiring the diverse bird life that is perpetually adorning the front garden. There's plenty of room to spread out and a fabulous indoor/outdoor room with a table tennis table and kids play area. The pianola was a source of endless joy for the whole family... Despite boasting all these wonderful features, the cottage is entirely unpretentious and this makes it easy to completely relax with the kids about.
Of further note is disabled access with the bathrooms downstairs appropriate for those with wheelchairs/requiring additional support. The owners have also very generously made some mobility aids available in a shed, should guests require these.
The property is situated on 30 glorious acres with some lovely nature walks and beautiful gardens. Our children were mesmerised by the 2 beautiful dams - you can catch yabbies in the lower one. There are cows, goats and donkeys on the property. We really enjoyed feeding, patting and brushing the donkeys and they were very friendly.
Although one could quite pleasantly pass the time in and around the cottage, Warburton has plenty to offer should you wish to venture out and explore. The township has several decent eateries. We enjoyed Warburton Pantry and Cog Bike Cafe - where you can hire a bike and enjoy a leisurely ride along the Lilydale-Warburton rail trail should the mood strike you. Worth viewing nearby is Boinga Bob's unique treehouse temple which has reportedly been assembled with no nails. The river walk is lovely and has playgrounds and BBQ's at several points. Overall this is a beautiful place to make lasting family memories and completely unwind. We were reluctant to leave and look forward to future visits." - LINA D.
