Located 15 minutes from Beechworth and only a few minutes from Historic Yackandandah, Crystal Creek property is pet-friendly and a perfect base for exploring NE Victoria.

Check out the historic towns of Beechworth and Yackandandah. Visit the local wineries and restaurants. Explore the area and marvel at the beautiful scenery - forests, mountains and river valleys of NE Victoria.

Stay put and check out the property or relax around our magnificent pool - the property is an attractive destination in its own right. Walk into 'Yack' down a scenic walking track and check out the historic mining gorge on the way. Maybe you can add to the list of birds that our guests have seen or catch a trout in the creek.

The 30 acre property is possibly the most beautiful spot in the area. It enjoys a commanding view of adjacent state forest. It has a fascinating blend of pastures and rugged 1850s sluice-mining gullies falling away to a meandering stretch of peaceful and shady frontage along the Yackandandah Creek. On a clear night the stars are breathtaking.

We have defined a fascinating Nature Walk within the property where you can discover old mining gullies, beautiful rocky outcrops, the meandering creek with swimming and fishing spots, forested areas and open flats, beautiful trees and a huge variety of birds.

The Cottage

Crystal Creek Cottage sits approximately 200m away from the main homestead. It is a truly unique and charming three-bedroom cedar cottage situated in a relaxing and secluded setting with magnificent uninterrupted views. Self-rated at 4.5 stars.

The property itself is at the end of a country lane with absolutely no passing traffic.

The cottage features shady verandas front and rear and a beautiful traditional country garden with established trees to enjoy.

The cottage has a fully equipped country kitchen with dishwasher, laundry, BBQ, wood fire, electric blankets and reverse-cycle air conditioning. The bathroom boasts a claw-foot high-backed bath and separate shower. Dogs are welcome and we have a dog-proof fence that keeps in all but the most determined canine escape artists. This is a great spot for couples, families and friends' reunions.

The cottage has three bedrooms, two with top quality queen-size beds and one with a solid bunk bed and trundle. Generous supplies are provided for a delicious self-cooked breakfast for the first two nights at no extra cost. The kitchen is well-stocked with all the other basic needs.

Guest comments

Like a slice of Paradise. We needed an escape and thats what we got.

What a wonderful peaceful location. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and feel very rested.

The cottage was perfect, the countryside magnificent.

Bliss - honest to goodness bliss.

Magnificent views and every comfort we could need. We will be sharing this secret with everyone we know.

An ideal location for a romantic getaway. The birds so bright and colourful each morning and evening.

Buster was also a perfect host, sitting with us out the back enjoying the serenity

Crystal Creek Yackandandah is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is it! This is THE pet friendly stay in northern Victoria. It deserves the highest rating and the best reviews and all the Stayz awards. Me and my two hairy mates have stayed in pet friendly accommodation all over Victoria and in all east coast states and this is the safest, most generous, best catered and friendliest of all. The cottage is very comfortable and very well appointed, the garden is safe, secure and charming and the hosts - Jan, Don and Buster are exceptional. It is a working farm where I was able to relax knowing that Ziggy and Reo were safe and secure and amused while playing with Buster and the cows and horse while I was relaxing on the veranda with my latest favourite book. No pressure, no signs telling us what we can't do - we were treated as responsible people who know how to respect others - what a breath of fresh air! Thank you Jan, Don and Buster for a delightful stay. Peter, Ziggy & Reo (Canberra)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cottage was really comfortable and cute. It had air conditioning was great as we stayed in the middle of summer. The house stocked enough food for breakfast for our entire stay for 4 people. The swimming pool was really nice and was heated.I loved the views and tranquil environment. No road noise!Most of all, I loved the owners dog. He was really friendly and I loved patting him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The property is in such a beautiful, serene and secluded location. You can't help but relax. We'd planned to go out for dinner the two nights we were there but we loved the property so much we made dinner there and sat and enjoyed the stillness from the verandah.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful relaxing spot to getaway from it all. Whether sitting on the veranda with the sound of the creek and the many birds that visit the garden or going for a walk on the property we found ourselves just falling in love with this spot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the most beautiful setting that a country holiday could be in. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the views. The cottage is more than well-equipped - we didn't need anything that wasn't provided. Thanks!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you for this idyllic place to spend our holiday. Scenery, cottage and garden are superb. Yack is a truly peaceful picturesque town in a great part of Victoria. I cannot end without mentioning Buster - he is one of those special dogs that come along once in a while.
