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 p├ętanque 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 A truly relaxing house We had our regular 5 day mid winter group break, which was enhanced by the wood fire, comfy seating with wonderful views. The house was beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Our only suggestion would be a second toilet upstairs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A wonderful cottage for family to get away We are impressed with the cottage's comfort and thoughtful provision of everything. The location was great, near lot's of tourists attractions. It would be even better if the gas stove and remote control works properly. Also if the dish detergent was not over diluted.... One little disappointment was that the bedside tables was heavily covered in dust in the bedrooms upstairs. It would be great if some herbs like rosemary, basil and mint, and lemon can be planted at the garden. Overall, we are very happy with our stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Beautiful, house with amazing views, so very comfortable for the six of us. We enjoyed the area around Mt Macedon and Woodend, easy to get around. We would highly recommend this house to anyone that wants to chill out or have a wedding in the area to stay.
