On Friday, 18th September 2015, we were thrilled to be announced as the Winners of the Housing Industry Association Award for Best "Small Commercial Project" in Eastern Regional Victoria.
Back on the 12th Oct 2011, Anthony and Tracy purchased a block of land in the main street of Marysville. One year later they started building 8 cottages which they designed and furnished. They really wanted to build in a style that suited the little alpine village of Marysville. It took them, and a team of tradesmen, 12 hard working months of commitment and long days until it was open for business. Anxiously waiting for their first booking, wondering if building the cottages was a good idea, a booking finally appeared, then over time, we gradually gained interest, through word of mouth and electronic means of communication. Anthony & Tracy of Marysville Garden Cottages will always continually appreciate your support and the way they see their guests enjoy what they have created.
To receive such an esteemed recognition from Australia's largest residential building organisation was truly heartwarming.
