Stunning Old World Architechure to the finest detail is admired and enjoyed by guests at Running Creek Castle bed & breakfast. Surrounded by expansive manicured gardens and overlooking a small spring fed lake Running Creek Castle offers a level of privacy and tranquility to even the most facidious guest.
Nestled in the Kancoona Valley between Bright and Mt Beauty, Running Creek Castle is at the foot of the Victorian Alps and still only 45 minutes drive from Albury/Wodonga. We also enjoy the close proximity to Historic Beechworth and Yackandandah together with the Alpine Wine Region and the many fabulous gourmet experiences on offer in this sensational part of Victoria.
Running Creek Castle is ideal for people seeking the ultimate in a romantic or family getaway and makes the bed & breakfast experience a special and memorable one.
The magnificence of the castle becomes more apparent the closer you come to it. The detail in the building is of a era long gone but still admired by many. Owner, Garry Morgan built the castle over six stages and incorporated materials of historical significance which he has collected over a long period of time and was awarded the MBA Builder of the Year - north east region in 2007 for the complexity and craftmanship clearly on display at Running Creek Castle.
There are two self contained suites within the castle building, each on three levels and comprising of private outside entry/vestibule, lounge area with queen size sofa bed, kitchen with gas cooking facilities, and equipped with everything you need, private bathroom, one loft style bedroom (with either king or queen bed) which overlooks the lounge and a second bedroom with one double bed and one single bed. The suites are gas heated for optimum guest comfort on chilly Alpine nights. There is Austar available from each suite lounge and the second bedroom. Therefore, each suite can sleep a maximum of 7 people.
In addition, to the castle accommodation we have on offer a fully self contained three bedroom timber cabin with it's very own private creek frontage. Ideal for families seeking quality time away together. Our cabin can also sleep a maximum of 7 people.

We visited the Australia Day weekend with another family and stayed in the cabin which is a bit tired (the Castle was booked out) but in the most beautiful setting. The Castle and grounds are amazing and we will definitely stay again. The grounds are huge and perfect for children, the pool is fantastic, the creek gives them heaps to explore and there is so much more... Day trips are an easy drive... Bright, Mt Beauty, wineries etc. Gary and Sandy are fantastic hosts who make you feel extremely welcome. We can't wait to plan our next stay!!0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
