We had a wonderful time renting Lynda’s beautiful cottage. She was there to meet us and gave us some lovely treats and a delicious gingerbread dog treat for our Black Lab, Rosie. It was a hot day and she already had the air conditioning on for us! The yard is fenced securely and it has the most beautiful gardens. It was so nice to wake up to the sound of the birds. The cottage is only 40m from the Merricks General Store (yum!) and Stonier Winery for a tasting. It is 5 minutes drive to Point Leo Estate and others. The cottage is spotlessly clean (so hard to find lovely, 5 star accommodation when you have a dog)- but this is lovely. Beautiful towels, crisp sheets and air conditioning/heating throughout. We were there on 40+ degree days. We had the air conditioning on and we were very comfortable inside with Rosie all day. Lynda was very proactive on communication and made sure that we were comfortable and knew what to do if there was a bushfire. She was a delightful host. We loved meeting the alpacas and her lovely horse and we left Merricks Cottage feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Thank you Lynda- we’ll be back!  Amber, VIC


We absolutely loved every single part of our stay, from the super comfortable bed, pillows and luxury linen to the beautiful sunlit sunroom, and everything being only a stones throw away.  The cottage was absolutely spotlessly cleaned and styled to perfection. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Lynda, she went above and beyond to make our stay welcome, comfortable and special!  Thank you so much for having us, we can’t wait to return!   Hannah, VIC

My husband and i just had the best weekend down at Merricks Cottage, we loved it all from the warm fire place and the beautiful sun room.  This great cottage has a real luxury country feel about it and very close the the Merrick’s general store which offers everything from wine tasting to amazing food.  Lynda was a great host, she filled us in with all that we needed to know about the area from greats walks to great wineries.  Cannot wait to stay at Merricks Cottage again very soon.   Melissa, VIC

My wife and I had a great weekend in the cottage house with our 2 dogs! The rooms were cosy and the bed was very comfortable.  Lynda, the owner, added some special touches that were unexpected but were very appreciated including a good selection of nespresso coffee!  The large back yard was completely fence, so I had no concerns about leaving my dogs for the day while we went out to golf at Flinders.  Our stay was A+ and especially recommended if you are travelling with dogs.    Mark, VIC

We absolutely loved our stay at Merricks Cottage, it is beautifully furnished and the beds are so comfortable with gorgeous linen. Spent our time in the local area, so much to see and do. Our dog really enjoyed the garden and walks along Thompsons Lane. Looking forward to our next stay.    Rachel, VIC

We stayed here for 3 nights over new year and had the most wonderful stay. The property is beautiful – very clean, bright and airy, well furnished, comfy beds, and everything smells beautiful. Lynda is lovely and had thought of all the little finishing touches – including local jam, fresh produce from the garden, and even a bottle of local sparkling wine to celebrate the new year. Our dog Herbie had a great time too – the property is fully fenced, the beautiful garden is very spacious, and there were even some local dog treats for him (which he loved). We will definitely be back if we get a chance, and I’d highly recommend staying here.   Steph, NSW

We stayed at Merricks cottage for the first week of Jan 2018 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The cottage was beautifully presented and in a great location, walking distance to Merricks General Store and close to local wineries and restaurants. It was a great base for exploring the peninsular including Pt Leo Sculpture Park, Red Hill, Flinders and local beaches. The cottage contained everything we required including very comfy bedding, air-con, heating, open fire, wifi and some thoughtful local produce. Our host Lynda was very accommodating and responsive and we would definitely recommend Merricks cottage.  John, QLD
