The SpaceThis separate apartment has two large bedrooms with its own entrance through the garage where you may park you car. The smaller third bedroom has bunks for two children, a table and chairs.
Comfortable spa bath and separate shower, with a separate toilet and hand basin.
If you are a couple, you will have this apartment to yourselves.
If you are a couple travelling with another couple you and your friends will share the bathroom.
If either of you have children, we have the bunk beds for two of them....any more than 6 persons and we do have other options for another two singles, or a couple prepared to have single bed accommodation.
If you wish to cook, we make the large and fully equipped kitchen available for you, and we invite you to partake of our vegetable garden which we are now establishing. In our kitchen, we provide a fridge for your use and we welcome you to use our kitchen and dining area for your family breakfast. We do offer a generous Continental breakfast.
Outside seating and BBQ is provided for your relaxation, and a fire pit inside our pavillion - weather/season permitting.
We are currently constructing an all weather shelter for BBQ and outside cooking/eating - with magnificent views to the West.
Generally, you will feel that you have the house to yourselves, not just your apartment. Guest AccessUpon your arrival, we may suggest you drive straight into the garage and enter your private apartment within the house. We will have everything ready for you to relax and unwind - come and go as you please, no need to bring sheets. Walk around the property and meet our animals - bring your own, too!!
Walk down our driveway to the Village where you will find exceptional Cafes for coffee, soup snacks and lunch; sit up at the bar in our Boutique Brewery - Loch Bitters and their own Gin, Gin Liquer and Whisky to come!
If you wish to do major cooking we will be happy to leave the kitchen for your use, and at that point you will enjoy the freedom of the house and, if it is very cold, the open fire.
Our bedroom is at the other end of the house, and we can be self-sufficient, so no need to fear you are disturbing us....the house is for you to enjoy, and we will not disturb you. Interaction with GuestsIf you wish complete privacy, this is easy.
However, if you care to join us or meet our animals etc; and walk the estate....we are only too happy to share our stories and hear yours also.
Upon request, we can take you to our friends farms to watch and learn - milking the cows, you name it and we will do our best to make it happen....
BBQ, trees to climb, room to run and roll - all available. The NeighborhoodFrom the house we have 360 degree views.
Walk out onto the 7.5 acres green grass and roll down the hill, sit under the trees, climb the trees,
experience the quiet and watch the cows and other animals and wonderful birdlife all around.
Coal Creek Historical village; Philip Island and Wilson's Prom not far away.
I love that we can stroll down our driveway and we are there in the Village of Loch. Stroll through the Village, several coffee shop choices and a wonderful Gift Shop with the best and inexpensive gifts available. Antiques are often on sale and the Owner of Carringtons will deliver to Melbourne, anytime. White Linen has amazing pieces which may evoke memories of times with your (URL HIDDEN) special!
There is a great playground for children, picnic area, skate park and walk under the Highway to the quaint railway station whose train is temporarily suspended due to damage to a Bridge along the normal route between Leongatha and Nyora.
In this location we hold Farmers Markets during the warmer months; while Winter Markets are held in the Town Hall - 2nd Sunday monthly.
Geoff and I can recommend local sheep and goat's cheese tasting opportunities and markets, particularly the very popular Kongwak market each Sunday.
The Gippsland Wine Co. is in the Village, and here you commence the Gippsland Wine Trail, have a yarn with Mark, and try his outstanding award wining wines!
Dinners are available close by at The Poowong Pub; and other places we can recommend...or use our BBQ/spit!
Our own boutique Brewery has received much Press lately, as well as the Winery across the Hwy - wine tasting extravaganza! Getting AroundThere is a Vline Coach which travels between Southern Cross railway station and Yarram - and stops at the end of our street. Let us know which bus you will be on and we will come to meet you!
(URL HIDDEN) Other Things to NoteWe need to mention that we are on tank water only, therefore shorter showers/baths will conserve our water, thanking you for your consideration.
