Need "time alone", a romantic stay for two or small-family getaway?

“Martin on Main” in Blackwood is your place.

Kangaroos graze regularly near “Martin on Main”, Kookaburras, King Parrots and other assorted bird life, provide a tranquil background soundtrack. Keep your eyes open for the Black Cockatoos, skins and Blue Wrens.

The Space:

Martin on Main is plain on the outside, but venture inside the front door and you will be pleasantly surprised by the compact space, with comfy modern amenities inside.

The timber lined cottage is rustic and spacious - built from recycle timber crates from the Detroit Motor Company.

The modern country kitchen is designed to allow you brew a coffee or cook up a storm,  if you can be bothered to cook.  There is a fully functional Everhot wood stove, the electric two burner cook-top is great for simple meals and the large electric frying pan excellent for whipping up anything from pancakes to a Sunday roast with all the trimmings!

No need to bring the dressing for the salad, as oil and vinegar and other condiments are supplied as well as quality coffee and tea options

Sleeping arrangements include a romantic and comfy iron double bed in the main bedroom and two sets of bunks in the second bedroom and if required a divan in the lounge.

Quality fine linen, towels, hot water bottles and cosy doona’s provided.

The compact refurbished bathroom suits all ages and features a deep shower over-bath and compact washing machine to accommodate longer and perhaps more adventurous stays.

The cottage is fully insulated and extremely cosy in Winter with the Coonara fire in the lounge

Sit back and unwind and watch the world go by whilst sitting on the deep verandas in the afternoon sun.  Enjoy being disconnected and use the books/board games and magazines provided.

Comfortable cottage with comfy double bed. Everything you need for self catering. Convenient location in the town. Good quality tea and coffee provided, also good quality linen. Good value for money. No T.V. but plenty of board games. We enjoyed our stay, Blackwood is a pretty town with a good restaurant, (we didn't get to the pub so can't comment), handy post office/general store and friendly locals. It is close to gardens and nurseries and other towns of interest such as Ballan and Trentham.4/5 by , Devon North, Victoria
Lovely stay in rustic little cottage. It has all the essentials, except a queen size bed. For us that meant sleeping in two separate beds.The shower is good & kitchen fully kitted out. Blackwood gets seriously cold, even with the supplied hot water bottles & fireplace (won't go all night), come prepared!! Outside winter this is a wonderful location to stay in a friendly township. We will return (:4/5 by , Melbourne
Just a delightfully cosy place in a gorgeous town. The bed is so comfortable & the split system warmed the place up in no time. Local cafe, The Merchant did a fab breakfast with excellent coffee.5/5 by , Melbourne
