It's hard enough to get a booking at pioneer, so I am reluctant to write a review saying how fantastic this place is ... don't want all of melbourne here! Recent trip with my brother from UK was as good as ever. Views, wildlife, BBQ area, comfortable cottage - the new couches are a great addition. Cannot recommend this enough...

I could say I promise I'll tell no one, but that would kind of defeat the purpose ... Thanks so much for your lovely review, I'm so glad to hear you all enjoyed your stay. While we definitely wanted to keep most things the same, a comfy couch in front of the fire won the day. Good to hear your...

Thank you for your lovely review, I'm really glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are certainly very privileged to play host to such an array of bird life, the Simpson and Day field guide is never far from the back door to help with identification! Thanks again, we hope to see you again soon.

Firstly, the setting is spectacular, with sunsets on the range giving you that "ahhh glad im here" feeling. Then the sun goes down, the kangaroos hop off to wherever it is they hop off to, the billions of stars come out and you go inside to get the fire roaring. The Stone cottage was toasty warm on arrival, but you...

Wow from the moment we arrived it was beautiful. Hidden away enough to feel isolated but still close to pop into Halls Gap if you needed anything. We stayed in the log cabin and the views were amazing while sitting by an open fire. No it isn't fancy furniture as others have mentioned but it is suited to the cabin...

i hesitate to give such a low rating, but it is one i think is fair. as a bit of background, i settled on the grampians pioneer cottages when my first choice in the area (dulc) did not permit one-night stays. reading the reviews, i went with the pioneer cottages because of its setting (outside of town), privacy and how...

We enjoyed a relaxing weekend away, friendly welcoming owners, rooms are clean, the fire was a great touch to the cottage adding the warm feeling at night. Did not use cooking facilities in cabin, but all seemed in working order. Easy access to town and bush walks

Very welcoming rustic cottages. Basic accommodation that lends itself to have the whole family with you. We enjoyed the quiet surroundings , being able to have an open fire and just have simple home cooked meals. Life in the seventies was not glam but functional especially if you appreciate that these cottages were built from recycled materials. Suggestion .. A...

Thank you Rhondalil for your fantastic review. Great to hear that you enjoyed the ambiance of the cottages and their nod to a bygone era. The open fire places lend themselves to creating a homely feel that most modern accommodation can't match. Since taking over we are in a process of upgrading the cottages whilst retaining the 'Pioneer' feel and...

Visiting for one night through the Grampians. Coreen was very welcoming and even got some complimentary eggs for breakfast from the dead by chickens. The cottage itself was charming and rustic, but very comfortable. A few features could do with updating. Great outside area overlooking the zoo and plenty of space for kids to roam. Has a great fireplace too...
