Description

Cheeky Fox Retreat offers a relaxing getaway for groups of up to 10 people. Situated on 50 private acres with spectacular views over the Kinglake Ranges, the property is perfect for a relaxing weekend away, a business meeting, planning session, or as a space for artists to work including craft groups and musicians. Follow us on Instagram @cheekyfoxretreat

Surrounding areas of Kinglake provide guests the opportunity to explore the majestic Kinglake National Park and include a variety of walks to park highlights such as Masons Falls and Wombelano Falls. Local tourist destinations are also within easy reach, including the historic Kinglake Pub.

Guest Access

Guests have exclusive access to the house and immediate grounds, including swimming pool and gardens and you are welcome to explore the wider property and walking tracks through the bush. Note that as a working hobby farm the owners reside in a separate dwelling on the property and may be present tending to the animals during your stay.

Within the house there's a large living space, boardroom/dining room, award winning kitchen, library, private cinema and music studio musicians are required to supply their own equipment.

Interaction with Guests

Your hosts will be available to work with you and make sure your stay is perfect in every way. We aim to greet all our guests to show you around the house and facilities before we leave you to enjoy the retreat.

We like to get to know our guests prior to arrival so that we can provide as much of a tailored experience as possible. Please tell us a bit about your group and plans for your stay when making your booking or enquiry so that we can offer you the best advice for your stay.

For those guests planning to visit the Yarra Valley wineries, we offer private wine tours directly from the property and can either design a tour for you or take you wherever you'd like to go if you. Ask about our ‘Cheeky Wine Tours’ when enquiring for more information.

We can also provide conference & event co-ordination, in-house catering, team building/entertainment and transport options for an additional fee so please let us know your requirements when booking.

House rules

Whilst we're secluded and we encourage you to enjoy your time on the property, we still have neighbours to consider so no excessive loud music in the outside areas of the house/property after 11pm.

Your booking is for the maximum number of guests that we have agreed, no visiting guests are allowed unless by prior arrangement.

However, please just be upfront with us about your plans so that we can work with you to accommodate - we're pretty easy going

No smoking inside the house please, an outside ashtray is provided. Also, sorry but we can't accept pets due to other animals on the property - dogs tend to love chasing sheep

Other things to note

The Cheeky Fox Retreat is home to some local farm animals including 30 sheep and three horses. We also have nightly visits from wombats and the occasional Cheeky Fox. With the animals on the property please remember to close all gates after you use them.

Kinglake is known for its mountain winters so don't forget to pack your gumboots, uggboots and warm clothing from April to October. Note the swimming pool is not available over the winter period it's solar heated so we can't get it to a comfortable temperature at that time year but we find red wine by the fire a pretty good alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing property and hosts We booked a long weekend away for my dads birthday- 8 adults and 4 children and we had the best time! It’s an amazing property with so much to do for both adults and children. Location is fantastic if you want to go for Drive somewhere but with so much do locally at the house we didn’t end up leaving apart from short walks. Can’t speak more highly of this property and we will deinfitely we returning. Thanks so much

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing week! We had another fantastic stay at Cheeky Fox for 5 nights over New Years. We had a large group with several families and lots of kids and Cheeky Fox was perfect for us. Linda and Jason are brilliant hosts - super helpful and welcoming. They go above and beyond e.g. providing tractor rides for the kids and a welcome hamper of goodies on arrival. The location is stunning and very handy with cafes, supermarket and a pub just up the road and the Yarra Valley only a 20 minute drive way. We can't recommend Cheeky Fox more highly and can't wait to visit again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Perfect! We had 10 adults and 7 kids stay for the weekend to celebrate my dad's 70th Birthday and we couldn't have picked a better place. It is perfectly located so feels like you are remote but are still just out of town. The house was perfect for a relaxing weekend and the kids loved the pool and getting to know some of the new little lambs. So much room to explore and spread out while still feeling like a cosy farm house. Linda and Jason were always accessible and fantastic hosts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unforgettable experience! Our stay was amazing! The location is beautiful with breathtaking views at the meadows behind the house. The house is huge, and everything there is about style and comfort! Linda and Jason are super welcoming hosts, who made our stay an unforgettable experience! Just an hour drive from the North of Melbourne. Definitely worth coming back!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful weekend We booked the Cheeky Fox Retreat for a small family weekend away to celebrate my Dad's 70th birthday. The property is gorgeous and the house is beautifully presented and very cosy (despite being quite large!). We prepared a birthday dinner in the huge kitchen which was so well appointed, it had all of the equipment we could possibly need. Linda also helped plan our mini winery/sightseeing tour with some great ideas. I can't recommend this property highly enough for a group/family getaway!
