Really enjoyed our stay, at Stringers and would consider booking again. The attention to detail, books games, history and location, were particularly enjoyable. No sign of marsupial mouse but were visited in the morning by a Pied Currawong, after some of our breakfast.
A lovely retreat – thank you
Anna, Stringers Cottage was a lovely place to come in the setting of historic Walhalla – a leisurely walk around town, a ride of the train, lovely tea at the pub. The cottage was very comfortable and well appointed. Once the fire was burning, it quickly became a warm space to relax. Lack of mains electricity power was not a problem as the in-house system worked well. One suggested improvement – some plunger coffee might have helped us! A lovely retreat space to get away from it all and enjoy some peace and quiet up the secluded Walhalla valley.
Another perfect stay
This is the third time we’ve been back to Stringer’s Cottage and we were delighted to find the cottage waiting for us again this year. It is such a fantastic place to unwind from the trials and tribulations of the city and get back to what’s important. Anna has really thought of everything you could need for a comfortable stay and we wouldn’t change a thing. We’ll be back again!
We absolutely loved the cottage and hope to stay again soon. Good on you for restoring it and looking after it. The location in the bush above town near the train station is great. Everything was very clean and comfortable and we’re looking forward to staying again soon. Walhalla is a beautiful little village and well worth staying a few nights.
Absolutely charming. Our two nights in Stringer’s Cottage made us want more – we will return! Not for those who want spas and dishwashers, this is an endearing, down-to-earth, beautifully presented little haven, with all the practical tools & implements required for living here. Good (small) kitchen, comfy bed, interesting collection of books, games, pictures, and a wonderful fireplace ( firewood, kindling ,axe, newspaper, firelighters, matches…!). Easy to walk into Walhalla, a unique & fascinating place. Loved it.
As we have just had an amazing couple of nights at the cottage we just wanted to thank you personally. It really is a great cottage and exceptionally clean. The real fire is a great touch to go to sleep too. Convinced there must be a ghost as the egg cup completely vanished on day 2!
We have done 5 trips down under and after the Opera House and Sydney Bridge climb this is easily the 3rd best thing to do in Aussie, a couple of nights in your cottage!
If only all cottage rentals were like this….
A rustic cottage in a lovely bush setting close to the centre of Walhalla. Stringer’s cottage had everything we needed for a lovely weekend stay. We loved hearing the “toot” of the old train coming past during the day.
“The Coach House and Stringer’s cottage are remarkable. They reflect the heritage of town, yet are comfortable and well-provisioned. Extra touches, like wood for the fire, made the stay a first-rate experience.”
Had such a lovely weekend hidden away at stringers cottage. The cottage was well stocked with supplies such as tea/coffee, fire wood and plenty of books to whittle the day/night away. With minimal electrical outputs and no television it felt like the perfect place to escape the bustle of the city. Anna was a great host who was easy to message and answered all our questions. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone looking for a secluded bush getaway.
“ahhh, How’s the serenity”

A fantastic spot for a weekend away from the hustle a bustle of Melbourne. A very easy 2 hour drive from the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. The cottage is absolutely stunning and is worth every penny! A perfect location with an easy walk into the historic town of Walhalla. Will be back!
