A large colonial guest house set on a hill leading up the valley from Healesville to Toolangi - I stayed for 2 weeks as part of a residency and it was marvellous. The location, grounds, food and service were excellent. Deanne and Toby made us feel completely welcome and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend staying to anyone. I'll be back...

Thank you!! It was fantastic to have you stay. We loved every bit of it. Toby is pining for more artists to stay. He is missing everyone singing around the piano as well as all of the story telling. All the best Deanne

I stayed as a guest for two weeks as one of a group of artists who were creating works for the Toolangi Sculpture Trail. What a wonderful two weeks it was! After long days working in the forest we appreciated relaxing with a pre-dinner drink on the verandah before enjoying the delicious dinners cooked by chef Mardie [using local produce]....

I stayed at Strathvea with a group of friends for a wedding that was held in the beautiful grounds. I can't speak highly enough of the exceptional surroundings - a forest of immense mountain ash trees, the guest house itself which has a decadent majesty and above all the hospitality and friendliness of the hosts, Deanne & Toby. Nothing was...

This was truly the escape we needed. Great if you have a group. Everything is taken care of for you. Group areas, private areas and tranquility. The staff know exactly what you want and need and just appear with it. If your chasing an escape with relaxation, home cooked meals - LOOK NO FURTHER!

I spent 2 days/nights here for a work conference in September. The setting was beautiful. The service was fantastic and food was delicious!!! The rooms have everything you need and even though it was very cold at night the hearers and electric blanket kept the room lovely and warm. This is a unique place with real character and charm.

This was our second trip to Strathvea - we visited in May 2015 and enjoyed it so much that we invited another couple with us this time. Once again, it was fabulous.

Although our stay was unfortunately limited to 1 night, we intend to return so that we can experience the wonderful old world feel of Strathvae Guest House and and the tall trees of Toolangi. Dinner was a triumph and we left somehow knowing that we would return very soon.
