The high life in High Country

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen on Tuesday, December 13, 2016

When the phrase ‘best kept secret’ is bandied about, it’s usually a sign that a stay is a cut above the rest. But with that description comes some pressure. A property has to more than just deliver on that promise; it has to set the standard. That’s not a problem at Mill Cottage.

This renovated miner’s cottage’s location is the first part that plays into the ‘best kept secret’ label. Welcome to Wandiligong, a tiny hamlet that shares its corner of Victoria with Bridge, Harrietville and Myrtleford.

It’s quiet, private and gob-smackingly beautiful. It makes the kind of first impression that will have groups of friends exchange knowing looks, smug in the fact that each member knows this cottage is all just for them. Families will be wowed too, and parents are guaranteed to earn extra brownie points once the kids catch their first glimpse of the saltwater swimming pool.

From every aspect, the cottage has mountain or valley views. The grounds are planted with sweet-scented blooms, so stepping outside to take a deep breath is to inhale a perfumed mix of crisp country air and garden freshness. In summer, when you’re not floating in the pool or sunning in a lounger, guests can walk or cycle the Rail Trail that runs past the rear of the property. When the air cools and the temperatures drop, while away days nursing steaming cups of tea, soaking in the corner spa bath or playing card games by the fire at the kitchen table.
