Description

With incredible views to Hanging Rock, SkyHouse Mount Macedon is what everyone imagines the perfect country house to be - two-storeys of self-contained indulgence for up to six people. Naturally, there is reverse-cycle air-conditioning to keep you cool in summer and warm in the cooler months, plus the added bonus of a wood fire to keep you really toasty!

SkyHouse is only 50 minutes from Melbourne (easy drive up the Calder Freeway), yet secluded in a tranquil bushland setting with kangaroos, echidnas and wombats your regular visitors. Less than five minutes will find you in Woodend (with its cafes, restaurants, shops and two great pubs), the village of Mt Macedon itself and Hanging Rock. 15 minutes away is Kyneton with its two one-hat restaurants and fabulous pub. There are numerous cellar doors within an easy drive.

SkyHouse also backs on to the Macedon Regional Park and there are wonderful walks from the house to Camels Hump, the Mount Macedon Memorial Cross and even Mount Macedon village itself. Jump in your car and the mystical Hanging Rock is only five minutes away with its walks, picnic grounds and horse racing track.

Mount Macedon is also renowned for its cool-climate, English-style gardens and there are various gardens open for public viewing. We also have two public golf courses within an easy drive at Woodend and Mount Macedon.

If you want good food, great scenery and a peaceful escape, SkyHouse is perfect. Great for families or two couples travelling together.

Pets will be considered by prior arrangement and agreement. A bond will need to be paid (or credit card details given) for all pet bookings.

As featured in The Age/Sydney Morning Herald "52 Weekends Away" Edition

SkyHouse Mount Macedon was chosen to be featured in The Age/Sydney Morning Herald's annual "52 Weekends Away" edition. Here is what they said:

"SkyHouse's exquisite view of Hanging Rock from the lounge, kitchen, deck and upstairs balcony is a magic that pervades this pristine double-storey holiday home, perched on the side of Mount Macedon and 10 minutes' drive from Woodend. With its spotless timber floors, impeccably stylish furnishings and three smartly appointed bedrooms - two with queen beds, the third with twin singles - SkyHouse is a great escape for families and groups of friends.

The generous gardens, which include a mini-sports oval complete with pétanque set, are ideal for slow summer evenings enjoying the ample birdlife and stunning views. In the heat of the day, retreat indoors to the air-conditioned comfort of the house, where the open-plan living space also provides an excellent viewing platform from which to enjoy Hanging Rock and the picturesque plains below. The fully equipped kitchen makes dinner for big groups easy, and there are three outdoor picnic tables, one of them under cover and next to a barbecue."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend in SkyHouse. You couldn't beat that view. It was lovely making tea watching the roos in the garden. We were so grateful we were able to take Bailey the Sheltie. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and doing so much to make us comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at SkyHouse during the second week of the school holidays. We had a great time enjoying magnificent sunny days, great walking, fresh air, grand views and spectacular night skies. We had dinner one evening at Radio Springs Hotel, Lyonsville and thoroughly enjoyed it - well worth the drive there. Hope we can return to enjoy the house and the surrounding region again in the future. Thanks from all of us, including our dog who thoroughly enjoyed herself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at SkyHouse. The house is wonderful - with such a lovely cosy feel. It is also very well equipped. The Mount Macedon area is beautiful and your tips for eating out etc is just spot on. We had beautiful cool, crisp, clear days and have spent many hours sitting in front of the fireplace. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The weather was perfect (crisp, dry and cold) and our stay been lovely. With the fire going it's been a great 3 nights away at The SkyHouse. Our kids loved the downstairs bedroom, and the oval for playing soccer in the sun. We climbed Hanging Rock, went up Mt Macedon and went exploring. All in all, a fabulous mini break away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne. Thank you.
