The kind of picture-perfect cottage that dream weekends are made of

Property reviewed by Lisa O'Brien on Thursday, December 8, 2016

There are a few key ingredients for the perfect weekend away – your favourite person, a secluded setting and a cosy cottage where you can curl up and forget all about the to-do list waiting for you at home. If you look after the favourite person side of things, White Gates Cottage in the heart of the Dandenongs can take care of the rest.

White Gates is the quintessential country cottage for two, with a queen bed, gas log fire, comfy couch and luxurious soft furnishings. There’s a contemporary ensuite with a deep bathtub to sink into and a walk-in shower with forest views, plus lush toiletries from local skincare company Soap Opera. This really is a stay where they’ve thought of everything – the large TV screen can be seen from the bed as well as the lounge (we’ll leave it to you to decide whether TV is allowed on your romantic escape though).

The owners describe the kitchenette as “tiny – but life’s too short to spend too much time there”. However, if you can’t quite drag yourself out of bed to get to a café for brekkie, a continental breakfast hamper is provided full of local produce. They can also arrange other goodies like a high tea breakfast, picnic hamper or antipasto platter at an additional charge.

Tucked away on a treed block, you’re free to enjoy the picturesque country scenery in total privacy. When you’re ready to explore, take a walk to Olinda Falls or drive to the nearby villages to check out local restaurants, cafes and boutiques.
