Sandra- Spencer Cottage

We absolutely loved our stay at Spencer Cottage, the only problem is that our stay wasn't long enough. We adored the resident chooks and loved the fresh eggs. Cannot recommend chris's place enough for a relaxing and gorgeous getaway. Thanks for having us 

Matt- Spencer Cottage

My Wife, daughter and I spent 2 nights at Spencer cottage and the photos do this place no justice. We were over the moon with the place. We arrived at night unfortunately but awoke to the most amazing views of the river and mountains in the morning. We were greeted by the chooks in the morning and my daughter absolutely loved getting the fresh eggs. Our only downfall was not being able to stay for longer. We will definitely be back ! Thanks for having us Chris !

Lana- Putty Farm

This was the exact sanctuary I was after. View: Spectacular. Seclusion: Absolute. Peacefulness: Second to none. Rustic Charm: Definitely. Cosiness: Put another log on the fire! Chris was THE perfect host from go to woe - even before I arrived and after I left - going the extra mile and above and beyond on many occasions. I am so grateful to have had this experience, and it was an "experience", not just somewhere to be with unrealistic expectations in mind. It isn't the Hyatt, and that's what makes it so great. I loved it all the way down to the chickens and fresh eggs. Thanks a million, Chris. I'll be back!
