    The SpaceThis is the kind of place that you would go to if you don't want to be in the city or if you're from overseas and want to see a part of Australian history in the form of a small agricultural and old gold mining town it still has many of the old mine shafts visible. There is a push bike here for you to use so you can cycle around the roads of the town. If you like hiking there are several small mountains around Clunes that I'll just lovely to climb up and see the view. If you're a student of mature age this might be the perfect place to get away to study and relax for a weekend. If you're workaholic you might want to come here just to meditate and do day trips to the spas at Daylesford for relaxation and contemplation. In the summer the local pool is actually warmed gently by solar panels making it very soothing for a swim. In the autumn the lovely old English trees turn orange, red, yellow and amber and the leaves fall gently on the ground so that going for a walk is a simple joyful experience. Even in winter if you rug up warm and get the outdoor fireplace burning you can read books, study, bring a romantic partner and talk beneath the stars... And best of all spring is when Clunes comes alive and the flowers and the trees burst into life and a sense of wonder and possibility fill the town. I'm a psychotherapist, counsellor and spiritual man so my house is full of books on healing, spirituality and self development - if you want a place to go away to so that you can evolve this is it. Finally the annual international Clunes Booktown festival is held here. Pine lodge is an awesome hideaway hut to stay at as you drift through the bookshops on an enchanted Autumn afternoon. There are so many reasons to stay at Pine Lodge. Guest AccessHot bubble baths Beautiful bush walks A cosy comfortable bed. GLBTI Friendly Interaction with GuestsIm often away working in Melbourne during the week so minimal interaction. The NeighborhoodInitially as you arrive it may not look like too much as the landscaping has not been started yet however inside Pine Lodge is warm cozy and rich in colour! The quiet "far from the city" peacefulness. Waking up to the sound of magpies early in the morning The many different beautiful walks you can take in the area - up mountains beside creeks and along beautiful old roads. The view of Mount Beckworth and the exhilarating 40 minute walk up if you choose to.
