Relax, unwind and take in the sheer beauty surrounding "Tarrangower", a self-contained hilltop retreat on 77 acres, midway between Daylesford and Castlemaine. Featured on Channel 9's "Postcards", it is an ideal place of natural beauty and serenity that allows you to escape from city life.

Tarrangower offers utterly amazing views of nearby mountains and forests. The house itself has a wonderful feel with comfy sofas, a well equipped modern kitchen and all you need for a fabulous stay. There are three bedrooms in the house, two queen and one twin room. The master bedroom has an en-suite with a corner bath. There is also a separate bathroom with a shower. The garden is stocked with roses, buddleias and many other plants, and there are many walks and special places within the property grounds. There is an outdoor eating area, and an enclosed pool area, and a spa on the deck that lets you unwind as the sun goes down.... sheer bliss!! The house is tastefully decorated with all that is required for a wonderful stay.

As an added extra, we offer a consultation with one of our therapists. We have qualified and trained staff with a genuine focus on health and wellbeing. We offer Massage, Kinesiology , Myotherapy and Beauty Treatments.

What guests say about Tarrangower:

"This place was utterly amazing, the serenity, the peace, the views and the most magnificent, fully furnished house to match! I highly recommend this place to anyone, any time of the year, for either a relaxing get away or somewhere to party up, have a bbq, a few drinks and relax in the pool!
definitely will be back!"

"Tranquility personified at Tarrangower. Great bush walks of surrounding area and big kangaroos hopping within metres of you sweeten the deal. Head back to the house, crank the open fire, light some candles and cook like a pro in the open space kitchen. Enjoy the intimacy while you devour your meal and gaze out to the countryside with its panoramic views. Take dessert and your glass of wine out to the balcony and watch the sun lower itself down. Pure joy. Stay for longer than just a weekend to really reap all the benefits."

"Absolutely beautiful accommodation!! a lot of attention to detail went into this cottage. Comfortable for 6 adults, well equiped kitchen. Tranquil, secluded and the wood fire heater went into good use. Thank you Sally-Ann for catering to our needs. Definitely would visit again, maybe in summer."

Artist's retreat

Under the vast and ever-changing skies of the Divide, find an endless variety of moods and subjects in nature's hilltop studio. Flowers and birds in the garden, tree-clad hills, distant mountains and the enigmatic Tarrangower itself - or lose yourself in peace and find inspiration inside yourself. The least artistic person we know said "It's like a picture - only you're actually in it". What will you make of it?

What guests say about Tarrangower:

"Peace and Quiet - something hard to find in this busy loud world, but its here at Tarrangower. The accommodation was so comfortable and beautifully decorated it was a shame we had to go home. "

Young family break

How many kangaroos can you count? How many different kinds of bird? How many shapes in the clouds? Our hilltop fortress is surrounded by hidden valleys, secret trails, campfires and unexplained mysteries - and of course it has a pool and a barbecue. Take Dad to the winery and Mum to the Chocolate Mill or just leave them in peace by the wood fire. It's up to you.

What guests say about Tarrangower:

"Our stay at Tarrangower was so relaxing. Our children had so much fun exploring the property and riding their bikes. The views were beautiful and the house was well equipped and spotlessly clean. ". Leanne, July 2013

"A great place to stay with our young family, beautiful wood fire kept us toasty warm and the toys for the kids kept them entertained so we could have a relaxing stay! Thanks Sally-Ann

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ! It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with you. For me it is always refreshing when excellent customer service is provided. You have always been responsive and you emails and communication have always come across as friendly and helpful.  Thank you so much for this; it is truly appreciated. We loved sitting on the balcony and admiring the views and we loved the decor inside -  It all just felt so homely and comfortable and the house really is a beautiful and peaceful space. For me it felt in between rustic and beachy and I loved the combination. Thank you once again and I wish you every success with your holiday accommodation business.  I will certainly let my friends and family know of your property if ever they are looking for this type of accommodation for their vacation. Kindest regards, Cathy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a fantastic time! - secluded yet close to amenities in Daylesford and Castlemaine. The house was beautifully presented and the kitchen had everything a cook would need. The children loved the pool and the kangaroos and we even managed to catch a yabbie in the dam - released to live another day... Would highly recommend to others and plan to return.Rebecca
