The space

Set on 5 acres along with the main homestead, this charming two bedroom cottage is an ideal quiet and peaceful weekend escape from urban life, featuring an indoor fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and laundry.

This space has been set up to completely relax and wind-down.

The Cottage is fully surrounded by a verandah and is set in its own fenced garden, with a few nooks perfect for sitting with a book and a cuppa or watching the local bird life.

Both bedrooms have queen size beds with a portacot available on request.

Linen, towels and some firewood supplied.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the whole Cottage and its gardens. The cottage is fenced in its own area and garden on the property. Easily accessible from the main driveway with any kind of vehicle.

Interaction with guests

Cassie or Leigh will be available on the property at the homestead, or contactable via the given mobile numbers.

The neighbourhood

Ross Creek is a small residential village surrounded by bushland and native wildlife. It’s the perfect escape from urban life to a more rural setting while barely leaving the convenience and comforts of city life.

There is a small village store selling basic groceries, fuel and takeaway food located just a 5-minute stroll down the road.

Getting around

Post Office Retreat is roughly a 20 minute drive from the Ballarat CBD. There is no public transport available. Taxi services are available, but can be costly.

Roads to the Cottage are completely sealed and are accessible with any kind of vehicle. There is a 2 car carport available exclusively to cottage guests.

Other things to note

There is a lot of wild life local to Ross Creek, including some endangered bird species. Kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, yellow-tailed black cockatoos and parrots are commonly seen on the property.

Most mornings kangaroos commonly are found feeding on grassed areas of the property, including in the fenced area of the Cottage. Please try not to approach these animals.

We have an extra single bed mattress with linen that can be provided for an additional $30 per stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice place to stay I enjoyed the quiet space that this location provides the cottage was comfortable and relaxing. The short distance to facilities time wise amazed me as I expected this location to be much further away. Friendly relaxed atmosphere, well presented.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cosy and relaxing stay We stayed here with our two children for a weekend away. The house was just what we needed - fresh country air, lots of trees and lots of space. The kids loved running around outside and saying hello to the goats in the backyard. The house was a perfect size, clean and comfortable. The fireplace certainly warmed the house up in no time. The only thing missing was a few more chairs and table to sit outside in the sunshine and enjoy the sound of the birds. Overall we loved our stay. The kids didn't want to leave. We hope to come back for another country escape soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Winter escape The Post Office Cottage is a very comfortable dwelling with a beautifully relaxing wood fire. The cottage is situated on a secluded property surrounded by tall gum trees, and only a ten minute drive to Ballarat. Very peaceful and cosy. We will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than a cottage! A beautiful, spacious yet modern cottage, tastefully decorated with a fireplace set to go. Peaceful location and considerate hosts. Thank you, we had a great stay.
