Welcome inside...

Open the front door to a glimpse of the stone chimney and  stair case which winds up to the sitting room and balcony in the treetops.

Cloud watch from the upstairs master bedroom on a rainy day overlooking the valley or retreat to the luxury ensuite bathroom and sky watch through the roof window above as you relax in the bath. Sit with a drink on the  bedroom balcony, taking in the sweeping valley views.

 

Immerse yourself in the ambience of the downstairs library, an eclectic collection of books, old and new on cooking, gardening, travel and more.

Cocoon yourself by the cosy wood fire nestled in the majestic stone chimney on a cold winter's day.

Cook up a storm in the luxury kitchen featuring contemporary concrete benchtops and pantry.

Wander Outside...

Relax in a comfy chair under the rambling grapevine

clad pergola.

Wander in the garden down to Wallaby Creek as it meanders along to the Kiewa River across the road.

Stroll up through the olive grove to the dam paddock, taking in the sweeping vista of the valley and overlooking the river.

 

Enjoy the east boundary views, the perfect spot to watch the changing colours of the hills as the sun sets.

 

Feel like a hit of tennis? The court is yours to enjoy during your stay. In the evening, have a fire in the fire pit on the terrace.

Things to Note...

Your accommodation is in the Farmhouse. We reside during your stay in the nearby separately yarded studio.

The garden immediately surrounding the house is yours for your private enjoyment during your stay, but you may find us in the outer reaches of the garden, tending the vegetable patch or cut flower garden or the farm beyond. We are on hand if needed during your stay, but otherwise keep to ourselves.

As much as we love animals, we do not allow pets.
