Weekend trip to cherry blossom cottage. Beautifully presented, spent afternoon relaxing, reading, wine and snax, chatting in the lounge room.
Beds are fabulous. Kitchen big and spacious.
Central to wine tasting. And granite belt amazing. A Must to go and view.
I spent 2 nights at Cherry Blossom Cottage and was very impressed, everything was very clean, tidy, and had a real country cottage look and feel about it. I stayed in the Verandah room and the bed was nice and comfy and I really loved the fireplace in the lounge room. I had the pleasure of visiting some great wineries and O'Maras pub during my stay and the hosts-were lovely and made me feel at home. Very highly recommended
