The SpaceYou know we are only 40 minutes from Mt Buller/Mt Stirling. With ski season coming up, our home could be just what you are looking for...
Artists, Friends and Family say there is something very special about this property. We really are only the custodians. This space is for people to relax, enjoy, rejuvenate and dream. The surroundings are spectacular in a cull surrounded by hills, with views to the lake.
There is a fabulous Mandela vegetable garden (help yourself-strawberries are in season). Pick your fruit from the lemon, lime , grapefruit and orange trees. Grapes straight from the vine into your breakfast cereal - like I did this morning! There are 4 bedrooms, sunroom, bathroom, toliet, kitchen, dining and living room. You are just down the road from the Tallarook to Mansfield rail trail, or you can walk, cycle to Bonnie Doon. There's an abundance of wildlife, fabulous views and just plain country living at its best! We have our own 3 sheep on the property, they keep to themselves.
You have access to use of the whole house, whilst you stay.
As your hosts, we will make sure our home is warm and inviting for you. Help yourself to a 'Leg of Local Lamb' from our freezer. Enjoy!
What we love about the neighbourhood, is that our neighbours are nearby and we all keep an eye out for each other. It's a very friendly place - Bonnie Doon - and you will be made to feel most welcome. It is the 'Serenity' - the 'Castle' (that classic Australian family film ) is just 5 mins down the road.
You will need your own car to get around.
Fancy picking grapes straight from the vines to add to your breakfast cereal, then just step outside the house.... there's strawberry patches around our home - pick and pop into your champagne. You are most welcome to pick the produce that is in season ... Also, note, we have an amazing spice drawer - please use what you need. That goes for the pantry as well. Linen is provided. So, really you just have to get yourselves here, settle in and stock up on supplies in Mansfield. The basic supplies (tea, coffe, milk, sugar, oil etc are here for you to use). Guest AccessGuests will have access to the full house. There is no access to shed or office. Interaction with GuestsWe will ensure that our home will produce the aahs upon your arrival! There will be a welcoming letter with list of the in/outs of the house, the area etc.Arrangements for key collection will be made prior. Any problems just give us a call and we can sort out. The NeighborhoodWhat I love is that everyone looks out for each other and their properties. You do not have the feeling of isolation, yet are far enough away that you have your own privacy. Getting AroundThere is no public transport. You will need your own car to get around. The nearest town of Bonnie Doon is just over 5 mins by car and Mansfield is 20 mins away. Other Things to NoteOur home is not precious - it has a loved in feeling. It has a lot of character, which we hope you enjoy....some parts are a tad jaded, that's life. We are not a boutique accommodation as reflected in our pricing....
