Yellow Cottage is an original brick cottage built in 1870, now renovated in a comfortable provincial style.

Attention to detail is expressed in the classic decor, which features a terrazzo floor and marble fire place surround. A chandelier hangs from the beautifully crafted Murray pine ceiling in the lounge room, complimented by a large Italianate wall mirror. Throughout the spacious interior, the walls are adorned by original artworks which together enhance the play of light and colour of the painted decorative effects.

The cottage is fully self-contained accommodation, which includes the comfort of an open fire in the winter as well as central heating and cooling. It features a fully equipped kitchen and large open plan living area with two bedrooms, a double bed and two single beds, to suit both couples and families.

The Cottage is surrounded by a large Mediterranean-style, secluded garden featuring distinctive brick and stone paving. The manicured rosemary hedges partition the garden highlighting the cast iron French urns, standing tall on their pedestals.

Located in the village of El Dorado, nestled in a picturesque valley downstream from Beechworth in North East Victoria. For travellers wishing to break their journey or holiday in the North East, there is easy access from the Hume Highway and the Great Alpine Road. Nearby is the Milawa Gourmet and Rutherglen region, renowned for world-class wineries and gourmet food, as well is the historic towns of Beechworth, Chiltern and Bright that provide the visitor with a multitude of cultural and outdoor experiences.

The village of El Dorado is renowned for its picturesque landscape of hills, valleys and glimpses of its gold mining past, situated on Reid's Creek, adjacent to Mount Pilot National Park. Yellow Cottage offers a unique alternative for those seeking a tranquil and comfortable stay in the countryside.
