Thankyou for opening your lovely summer house to us. It exceeded our expectations. Sitting and reading your wonderful collection of books took me back to a warm place in my childhood.

The misty rain clears and the sun appears from the clouds as we look out of the Windows to welcome the birds.  First the rosellas, bright blue and red, followed by finches dodging in and out of the feeder as the pink galahs arrive.
Full of breakfast they flutter off, and to our delight the magpies land on the decking - "where's our breakfast?"as they warble a song, so we throw them done bread crumbs, they ask for more so maybe a treat of cheese. Who comes to clean up the deck before we can sweep? Little blue wren picks up every speck!!
What a beautiful Summerhouse, even in Autumn. So comfortable and compact. Love everything about this B and B. The design is perfect.
Thank you Virginia,

It's a great house. The best we have stayed in so far. Well equipped, lots of books and magazines etc. We had a great time.
Lots of kitchen facilities, comfy beds, nice hot showers at the end of a day's travels.
We will come again in the near future and being our friends and recommend to others.
Thank you for the milk and chocolates.

Fantastic house with lots of extras. Very appreciated! Lots of birds, even a kangaroo in the back yard. That was an extra bonus for us from Holland! Thank you for having us.

‘Have stayed at many places in Australia and overseas, never anything so well appointed as here at the Summerhouse, everything you could possibly want, so much thought has gone into inclusions.  As I work in the hospitality industry and talk to so many people, I will definitely be recommending the Summerhouse.  And spot on for cleanliness!’

‘This is just an outstanding place to stay, the biggest problem was having enough time to appreciate all the amazing touches and facilities you have provided.  The view from the veranda is just peaceful and all encompassing, thank you so much.’

We chose your venue as we wanted somewhere to unwind – it was perfect.  We wanted for nothing.

Immaculate presentation and extremely well equipped.

‘Wow, we were very impressed.  This is such an amazing place and has everything from wildbird seed to flyspray.  The atmosphere and scenery were amazing and we loved every minute of it. 4 days does not seem long enough.  We will definitely be coming back and spreading the word of Nelson Summerhouse.’

We just got back to Melbourne and I wanted to let you know what a lovely time we had at your place!  It really was welcoming and wonderfully cosy, particularly when the weather wasn't fantastic, which didn't really matter :)  I devoured your Country Style magazines and Mack loved the Club Marines and other assorted "macho" options. Thank you for making our weekend away from the city so enjoyable.

Kara Lee and I stayed at the Summer House in the middle of Winter! The house is in a great position in Nelson a few minutes from the river and overlooking the National Park.  We enjoyed putting seed out and then photographing our feathered friends. We bought a kayak with us and went out on the river a number of times.  Again we saw lots of wildlife and managed to catch a few legal sized bream. The best thing about the Summer House is that it feels like a home.  It is well equipped with everything you need. We would highly recommend this house to others looking to find a place to relax, unwind, discover and explore!
