Our cottages in the Dandenong Ranges mix traditional hospitality with modern comfort, making them the ideal getaway for couples.
In less than an hour from Melbourne you can be in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges (also known as the Dandenongs), which are famous for the mountain ash forests, peaceful gardens and the bed and breakfast culture.
Here, you’ll find Candlelight Cottages: two self-contained cottages with private spas and real log fires. They are nestled among the picturesque villages of Mount Dandenong, Olinda, Sassafras, Belgrave and Monbulk, 600 metres above sea level.

Twilight Cottage: Luxurious and prefect for two
Turn your back on the city lights, wander down the path and enter your own world where time is just for the two of you. Perhaps light the wood fire and open a bottle of Yarra Valley wine – or luxuriate in the deep spa bath with the glass ceiling showing you the night stars before sinking into your feather topped bed. This is a very special little cottage where the everyday world melts away with the setting sun.
