We had a really wonderful stay at Tallawara Homestead. Andrey & Janine were both very conscientious and gracious hosts who looked after us during our stay and made sure it was as comfortable as possible. The rooms and the properties were in immaculate condition, and the bed was so good we found it very difficult to get up in the mornings! Andrey Janine serve you fresh breakfast every morning which consists of your standard cooked breakfast and/or continental breakfast which they let you customise to your preferences every morning. If you’re around for afternoon tea they also serve up some absolutely delicious home made scones with cream and raspberry jam that we just couldn’t get enough of! Tonimbuk is a little known area but there were plenty of great sights to explore that we absolutely loved. Yarragon has a really nice retail precinct with a beautiful art gallery as well. At Noojee, you can take some great photos at the Old Trestle Bridge and then have a nice romantic walk through the forests there. There are also some great wining & dining options in the surrounding towns such as Cannibal Creek Vineyard in Tynong, Garfield Hotel in Garfield and Middels in Drouin. All in all it was a wonderful stay, very relaxing and serene and exactly what we needed to escape our stressful work lives for a few days!

We stumbled across this property and after reading the reviews which are all very complimentary we decided to give it a go. Andrey & Janine are wonderful hosts their sole purpose is your comfort and rest and relaxation without being too intrusive. We really enjoyed our evening and we’re sorry to have to leave. The special touches like afternoon tea, chocolates, fruit and port set this venue aside from others. Janines scones were outstanding with home made jam and cream. Breakfast was another standout, the food was fresh and very well prepared and presented. We were lucky enough to have a host of kangaroos go about their business fir our personal viewing before we headed to bed in the most comfy bed I’ve slept in, I was reluctant to get out the next morning. Do yourself a favour and take a break at Tallawarra you’ll be pleased you did. Thanks again for having us Janine & Andrey

Five Star Luxury in Beautiful Countryside
Tallawarra is simply gorgeous. In all our travels, I don't think we have been welcomed as warmly and beautifully as by hosts Janine and Andrey; they go above and beyond to make their guests feel welcomed and ensure a relaxing weekend. The house itself is stunning - furnished beautifully and thoughtfully, immaculately clean and providing every comfort. There are so many lovely little extras - multiple towels and pillows, complimentary fruit bowl, chocolates, water, tea and coffee in the bedroom, an amazing continental AND cooked breakfast (including homemade granola and local eggs!), plunger coffee, and even port! We arrived too late for the complimentary afternoon tea, and so Janine kindly made us up a delicious and generous cheese platter to have with our port. It was a freezing weekend but we were snug and warm in the cosy, heated homestead. We'd like to come back with a group of friends and stay longer... it was just so lovely.
