La Pequena Casa is a fully self contained “little house” adjacent to our home, “The Hacienda”, on a 5 acre farmlet at the foot of Mount Macedon. This spot is perfect for exploring the beautiful natural surrounds, cafes, gardens, farmers markets or bike/walking tracks.
This idyllic family escape to the country, comes complete with roaming chickens, horses, organic produce garden and the odd kangaroo and kookaburra, even an echidna, if you’re lucky.
The comfortable and affordable family accommodation features one queen bedroom, and one bunk room, with 2 bunks, sleeping 4. There is also a pullout double bed that can sleep an additional 2 people in the loungeroom, if required. There is also a cot in the King bedroom.
Replete with kitchen, dining room and seperate lounge, the "Little House", offers a wonderful base for families to explore the Macedon Ranges; a possibly perfect family getaway with kids. Your children can enjoy feeding the chickens and collecting the eggs, playing in the treehouse in the pine-forest. Feel free to bring your bikes and ride our kids biketrack they’ve carved out.
La Pequena Casa is adjacent to our main house, and offers shared use of our garden with our family. I'm sure our children would only be too pleased to show you around the vegie garden, guide you to the hen house to collect your own eggs, show-off their tree-house, or to pat the horses.
You will have your own outdoor entertaining space, and off-the street parking large enough even for caravans.
Our property is located 3 minutes from Woodend and 20 minutes to Trentham. It is also ideally located to visit Hanging Rock, Mt Macedon, Kyneton, Lancefield or even a day meander to Daylesford.
There is so much to do and see nearby, and I will enjoy giving some tips on some great spots.
There is a Local Information Kit, left in the "Little House".
Our family is always in and out so please ask if you need something special
