The Guest House, which resembles a Scottish cottage, is nestled in spacious grounds beneath Mt. Moriac, in the gently sloping Barrabool Hills. It is conveniently located only 16 kilometres from Geelong, one of Victoria's most popular holiday destinations, and only one hour from Melbourne CBD.
Barrabool Hills Retreat offers 3 superior double rooms and can accommodate couples, families or single guests. Guests have the opportunity to relax and enjoy the restful and tranquil atmosphere of a fine country house and garden, surrounded by interesting works of art.
Barrabool Hills Retreat also offers a buffet breakfast of seasonal and organic produce, including fresh local free range eggs. Breakfast is served buffet-style in the elegant breakfast room or on the adjoining deck.
There are plenty of comfortable spots to relax and un-wind after a long journey, with ambient views over the Waurn Ponds Creek and pretty garden, and also a cosy fireplace for cooler months. For the more energetic there is a landscaped multi-purpose grass court for tennis, pentaque and croquet.
The lounges and breakfast room each have an elevated view over the garden, water-hole and surrounding hills. You can enjoy the atmosphere while you feast and plan the day ahead.
