Great location on the fringe of Lara overlooking a delightful dry creek bed and walking track.

The rooms are accessed via the deck and DO NOT INCLUDE access to the rest of the house. Each room has its own full ensuite.

I have 2 rooms available, both offer boutique, motel style accommodation. You therefore have your own ensuite, HD Digital TV, DVD, fridge, toaster, kettle, cereal & milk, tea/coffee provisions.

Room rate is $125 per room for up to 2 guests, one of these rooms has the ability to sleep an additional 2 -3 guests, additional guests are an extra $15 per person

Green Room - Queen size bed & King Single are in the room with full ensuite - an additional portable bed can provided in this room.


Blue Room - Queen size bed only - an additional portable bed can be provided if not already in use.

Maximum number of guests if both rooms are booked is therefore 6

10-15 walk to train station

10 minute drive to Avalon Airport & You Yangs Regional Park.

20 minute drive to Geelong Waterfront, walking distance to Serendip Sanctuary, shops, cafes, station.

Delightful outlook - semi rural.

"Sweet Dreams Retreat is exactly as the name suggests. If ever you are looking for a fresh, clean, homely and cosy place to stay, this is it - Topped with friendly and accommodating service and natural care products used throughout the room. My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated - There is something peaceful and soothing about Sweet Dreams Retreat. Perfect location for any MTB riding, Walking or Horse-riding in the You Yangs Reserve or as a one-night stop over. Will definitely be back."

- Nikki Gunn
