Hi John and Karyn, Thank you so much for the lovely stay in your cottage. Everything was just wonderful. I am sure you will see us back again in the future along with sone friends. Thank you again. Regards Bev and Kev

“Once we got up to the cabin we were speechless at how amazing the view was. The cabin was perfect. We will absolutely be coming back again and will stay longer. Thank you for everything, we had such a lovely weekend. I’ll be in touch soon to book again.” Louise

“The whole clan loved your cottages and will definitely be referring your business to other relatives, friends and colleagues.   The highlight was the abundant wildlife (bush turkeys, wallabies and echidna) at our doorstep.  The accommodation easily matches the best available in the south east cnr of this state plus the serenity and the view push your business to the top of our list.” Glen

“Karyn and John: it’s been great to meet you all and your family – you are something special. An ivory tower couldn’t achieve the pleasure of Bethany. It’s so natural and very real. Hope you like the poem:

“Of all the places that we’ve been

This must be the best we’ve seen

Bethany is a lovely haven

Closest we’ve been to Heaven

And of all the places to return

This must surely be the one

We’ve been here twice

And will be here thrice”
