“We have highly recommended your cottage to our family and friends, so they too can enjoy your cozy little hideaway. We hope to visit again for several nights; I really look forward to being pampered!”
From Mark & Toni


“If you have any plans to get out of (or even stay in town) – talk to Shelly & Gerald about it. They will undoubtedly set you right. Our stay at Chippings was helped immensely by their knowledge of places and interesting things we could see. Great advice, plus the guides are for free (in the sitting room).”
From Brett & Ikuyo


“We thoroughly enjoyed our all too brief stay at Chippings Cottage and the very warm welcome for two weary travelers. Adelaide and the surrounds were a delight and visiting was an experience we are determined to repeat.”
From Ian & Trisha

“I hope we can return to Chippings on a future visit to the Adelaide Hills. It’s certainly a good jumping off spot for both Adelaide and its surroundings.”
From Helen & Tim


“A truly picturesque place and equally lovely and friendly people. Shelly is a natural at being a hostess. Breakfast was exquisite.”
From Craig & Anna

“The nature of my work involves a great deal of travel, carrying out research for my books. I therefore have experienced staying in a wide variety of accommodation in various parts of the world. Chippings offers hospitality at a level comparable with the best and at a very reasonable price, plus of course the considerable additional benefit of getting to know two such charming people.”
From J.H. Fletcher, Author

“Tell your readers that if they are going anywhere near Adelaide try Chippings Cottage Bed & Breakfast. Gerald & Shelly Martin love Americans and you will love the cottage and the people. Central to all of the Adelaide sights and the Barossa Valley wine areas. The Martins motto is certainly true! “Sow good services, sweet romances will  grow from them.”

“My mother & I loved Chippings Cottage. We spent a lot of time here reading the great selection of books, talking & walking in lovely garden. We’re absolutely happy.”
From Kanako & Chiaki
