‘Waking up and looking at those mountains is truly surreal. What an amazing place – filled with so many wonderful treats for body and mind. So relaxing, so peaceful and so beautiful. Can’t thank you enough for your generosity and spectacular style. Thank you so much. Lots of love.’

Cottonwood Cottage is the most stunning accommodation venue you could possibly imagine! Perfectly decorated, beautifully appointed and luxuriously equipped to a delicious level of luxury and refinement. You’ll feel like a million dollars staying here…the detail is astonishing and the setting divine. Treat yourself to the best possible experience in Bellingen, and one you will remember forever!

Cottonwood has been my little piece of paradise for the last 3 days. I wanted to go away for a couple of days to relax, unwind and be inspired… I am leaving here today feeling peaceful, refreshed and totally inspired !! Thank you for sharing this beautiful retreat. It will be a place that I always fondly remember.. I will be back.


Magical property… extraordinary hosts!!

What a stunning property this is. The pleasant surprise beganas I drove past the magnificent forest and grand hills but it was when I drove up the tree lined meandering driveway that i knew something special was happening. The property is stunning and the cottage so beautifully designed and decorated that I would have loved to have stayed for a few extra days and sit at the desk and by the fireplace and really chill out. Thankyou Suzi and Dan for your generosity. I will return.


Oh Bliss!! As we return home after 3 months traveling Australia, sometimes to fairly remote places, the luxury and comfort of Cottonwood is such a pleasant Cocoon. The lush green valley and surrounding hills is a stark contrast to the outback. Like many before us we wish we were staying longer and are already planning a return visit.

We have had such a wonderful and relaxing time staying here! All of the lovely touches, the generously stocked fridge and waking up to the sounds of birds every morning … has been the perfect escape and the best way to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary.

Dearest Dan, Suzi and Gayle .. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful place with us. Not only is the cottage astonishingly beautiful…but so are the three of you!! James and I stayed for our wedding night and myself and my bridesmaids prepared for our wedding day here. Dan and Suzi were sharing in our excitement and even lent us their brand new Audi for a wedding car!! Couldn’t get any more beautiful here.

Thank you ..and we’ll be back

Elegant Luxurious comfort

My husband and I enjoyed 3 nights at Cottonwood for our 4th wedding anniversary and whilst it flooded while we were there is really was the most divine place to be. Beautifully decorated, all the supplies you could need, super comfortable with warm and generous hosts. Definitely a 5 star in the country! We hope to return sometime when the sun is shining.
