Perfect setup for 1 week for family of 5. Gardens, river, playground, pool & BBQ areas were perfect for us. Flat is on the small side but who cares when the best is all outside! So glad we caught the last of the warmer weather to enjoy it all. Definitely coming back next summer. Julie Toth

Neene, Ed,

I would like to thank you to for you hospitality during our stay. Your house was fantastic. It kept the group together and provided warm and comfortable accommodation for all. The overwhelming response is to book into your lodge again next year. Once again, thanks for everything and look forward to seeing you again next year.

Regards, John Hill

Dear Neene and Ed,
Very late but just wanted to say thanks for the wonderful house you rented us a few weekends ago for the Audax Classic. WE just loved our stay at Casbak (what an amazing spot with everything there!) and Harrietville and will definitely be returning there when our husbands are mad enough to cycle 200km (uphill) again!! Thanks for allowing us the 2 nights as well. Also, just wanted to say thanks so much for sending me back the DVD and Vit C powder – always manage to leave something behind! Lovely to meet you both and we wish you a great 2011.

Kind regards, Jackie and Simon Sellars.

'Beautiful surrounds and a lovely family atmosphere. A wonderful central place to stay with places such as Bright and Mt. Hotham so accessable. Great little cafe accross the road for lovely lunches, great pub for dinners and a few drinks only metres away also.

Owners were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating.'

 


Just a note thanking you for our enjoyable time we had with you. We both hope that the weather was alright for the wedding on Saturday and the BBQ on Sunday. Once again thank you for our great time.

We really enjoyed our stay at Casbak Alpine Units (Blackwood Lodge). Ed and Nene couldn't do enough for us, they made us very welcome. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they were very helpful in giving suggestions of where to walk, to go and where to go for a nice meal.

Certainly will come back to Harrietville one day and may stay at Casbak again.

Our friends (there were 13 of us) were equally happy with the accommodations and the location. What a beautiful setting and convenient for us bushwalkers and bikeriders. Anna Lee


We really enjoyed our stay. Casbak is set amongst beautiful gardens with magnificent old trees, all of which create a relaxing, peaceful atmosphere to just wander around in and unwind. The rooms were spotlessly clean, more than comfortable, and most importantly, nice and quiet ensuring a good nights sleep, even with the torrential rain we experienced that night! So glad we stayed there instead of out in a tent! Will stay there again, when not in the hills, and we feel like a bit of comfort and luxury. Thanks also for your welcoming, helpful and friendly dealings during the booking process and stay.

'Casbak was a most peaceful place to relax and unwind after a number of weeks of constant work. The owner / managers were most caring to all guests staying with them. I highly recommend this place to stay and would like to go back again to God's own country.'

"A group of six of us stayed for 5 nights during this years ski season. The house was really lovely - spacious, warm, had a great kitchen fitted out with all the essentials, a place to leave your damp clothes and plenty of living space to share - everything you'd hope for in accommodation. Neene was absolutely lovely and very helpful; making the stay even more enjoyable. :)"

        "To afford to take our 4 children on a holiday makes get aways few and far between, so we are dissapointed when we get to a location that does not cater to our childrens needs, in saying that however, casbak was the most child friendly accomodation that we have ever stayed in, the location was beautiful, the owners were lovely and helped us out when ever we need it, the unit was cosy and warm, just what we needed during winter, and the playground was safe and fun for all the kids, they especially enjoyed the games room, overall we will be making casbak our family destination from here on in.
Cheers, the Moore Family"
