Whilst our accommodation is private we are not far away if our guests would like to sit under a tree & enjoy a wine with us. Alternatively we are less than a minute from a major freeway that takes guests into Melbourne in around an hour or 15 minutes to a thriving little country town that caters to tourists & vegans!
Guests can enjoy long walks in the forest, sit & bird watch, enjoy they mob of approximately 40 kangaroo's that co-exist with us or meet our rescued steers, dogs, chickens, peacock, peahen & roosters. All rescued & all love human interaction!
The accommodation has a variety of books, music & DVD's plus a feature wall that is one enormous blackboard! This is where all of our guests get to either bring out their inner child or the artistic leave beautiful works of art for us to admire.
Whilst there is a "kitchen" space in the B&B it is not really set up for cooking. All meals are prepared & cooked at the main house & delivered to the B&B.
However this large area has cupboards, kettle, microwave & a fridge provided
Our guests are allowed to wander & appreciate the 60 acres freely. All we ask is that they ask for an introduction to our rescued steers prior to entering their paddock. (They like to know that we know you) There is an Island in the middle of the lake with a bridge connecting it to the mainland where amazing things will happen in the future. It's a work in progress
That guests ask permission to enter the steers paddock & that no animal food product or by-product be bought onto the property. If unsure, we encourage guests to ask. All gates remain closed at all times to ensure animals do no wander & that they allow the animals to approach them. Oh - & no dogs on the couches or on the bed in the B&B. Dog hair is a nightmare to clean!
Security Deposit (optional)
A $150.00 non-refundable deposit be made at the time of booking.
We are close to Melbourne, close to Edgar's Mission, close to eclectic little towns & regional cities. The area caters to tourists with a lot of see & do, however, if you simply want to relax & soak up the atmosphere then you have that too!
Tucked away off the Calder Fwy a car is essential for guests to get around. However if guests wish to stay here & simply relax pick-up from Castlemaine train station can be arranged for a small fee.
