Superb! The owners are brillant and go above and beyond to make you feel at home! - Loved everything about it especially the hospitality of the owners! 10 out of 10!!
Our stay at Acheron Acres was simply brilliant. We loved everything about it! - We loved the setting and views, the food was Devine and Annie and Frank were sensational hosts. We have already booked another stay!
This is truly a replenishing experience for a couple on a special occasion, well worth it! - The overall experience was wonderful, we felt so looked after and cared for, nothing was too much for our generous and warm hosts. Divine food, amazing bed, beautiful ambiance, very relaxing and personal.
Peaceful & luxurious B&B getaway - Wonderful hosts, and a picturesque spot. Wood fire, beautiful views. Only a short drive to Buxton pub, Black Spur Inn and Alexandra for dinner options, or you can indulge in the divine dinners (and other meals) on offer. We were blown away with the hospitality and quality of the room. The B&B is incredibly private and relaxing. For those freezing Victorian nights (Queenslander here), cosy up with the wood fire and netflix ready to go. We were visiting friends and relatives in the nearby area for our babymoon, and this was the perfect little getaway. Very comfy bed, and lovely linen. They also have an incredible mini bar on offer - I'll have to come back to sample the goodies!
Amazing and we’ll be back again - Great location with sensational views and close to all the local attractions. Annie and Frank are superb hosts. The room is very well appointed, cozy, comfortable, romantic with more than a touch of class. The breakfasts are suburb and the in-house dinners are divine. We will be back again and highly recommend this beautiful place.
We had a fabulous time and we would highly recommend this - Annie and Frank are very friendly people and the room was perfect. Breakfast over looking the mountain range was a great experience.
The setting is gorgeous - immaculately maintained gardens on a lovely farm under Cathedral Mountain. The room and bathroom are spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable, with good space & lovely views framed by climbing rose & other plants. The bathroom has heated floors and the large walk-in shower is very nice. Dinner was simply superb; we haven't sopped raving about it since. Magnificently fresh flavours complemented by an excellent local, organic verdelho. Every ingredient bar the prawns and peanuts came from the farm and the herb/veggie garden on the property. When we learned that Frank is a chef we were hardly surprised. A magnificent meal and a breakfast including freshly laid eggs - again from the property - was fantastic too. Frank & Annie are down to earth, friendly, highly competent & respectful hosts. We were thrilled with this, our first stay at Acheron Acres, do highly recommend it, and look forward to returning.
Welcoming - Anne and Frank are the most welcoming hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed everything, from first sight into the driveway: magnificent mountain view, manicured spring garden, friendly Bacon the dog, Casper the cat. The room is big & the bed comfy. Breakfast was certainly a surprise with fresh vegs from the garden, eggs from chooks, and artfully cooked by the host. We also had a experience feeding the cows with cabbage leaf. We feel spoiled and very much appreciated the warm hospitality.
Perfection - The accommodation itself is super clean, modern & classy with a beautiful outlook onto the gardens on three sides of the living room. A prepared wood heater makes it perfect for a cold night while outside a swimming pool for those hot days is exclusively yours. The gardens are amazingly neat with a variety of flowers, trees , shrubs & a sweeping green lawn that would make a grand wedding photo location. The two hosts go out of their way & strive for perfection -both for the property & for your visit. Highly recommend the very affordable dinner option which Frank ensures is a perfect fit for your preferred tastes. We had a crispy skinned piece of salmon with an array of garden vegetables, some blended into tasteful & classy side dishes. The cooked breakfast another winner.
Exceptional hosts, stunning setting - We couldn’t rate our stay at Annie and Frank’s property more highly ... it was exceptional, a real highlight. The property has everything a couple could want for their getaway. The gardens are beautifully kept and we loved spending time wandering through at the start or end of a long day. The room is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Great bed with a selection of pillows, overhead shower, good heating & cooling, Netflix and more. However the highlight of our stay was Annie and Frank (and Bacon the dog & Casbar the cat) themselves who were really wonderful hosts, and lovely people. They ensured we had all of the info. needed prior to arrival, helped us figure out how to get the most from our short 2 night stay in the region, showed us around the property, yet also gave us plenty of privacy. Nothing was too much trouble. Frank’s cooking was to die for too. Fresh home grown produce, beautifully cooked, nothing pretentious just good, flavourful food. For a very reasonable price Frank also cooked us dinner and dessert, so we really ate like kings. We’ll be back to Acheron Acres, it really is a little piece of paradise just a short distance from Marysville. Thanks for having us!
My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful 4-day trip to Acheron Acres. Our objective was to have time to relax and disconnect from work and this was the perfect place to do so. While I'm unable to comment on the hiking, day-trips and nature of surrounding areas, since we mostly stayed on property I know that there are many options for those looking to be adventurous. We stayed during some very hot days and found the place to be very comfortable. The room is large and has a reverse cycle air conditioner that helped us keep cool at night. It's a beautiful set up with windows all round allowing you to experience the beauty of the property at all times. The bar fridge is well stocked and your hosts have set you up with everything you need for coffee/tea in the room as well as some small plates/cutlery in case you want to make your own sandwiches/take some snacks. The bathroom is great and shower pressure fantastic, and the king bed is very comfortable. The pool is perfect to cool off in and has a beautiful outlook of the pond and the Cathedral Ranges. We also enjoyed getting to meet the pets who were all very friendly and non-intrusive. Frank and Annie are wonderful hosts, very friendly and happy to chat or give you space as you wish, and share helpful tips on the area. We had dinner all 3 nights we stayed were also really impressed with the quality of Frank's cooking and all the lovely fresh vegetables from their garden that they incorporated into the dishes. He took our preferences into consideration and we really enjoyed all our dinners and breakfasts. Highly recommend having Frank cook for you at least one night!
