Architecturally inspired, designed to highlight light and outlook from every room

Well appointed kitchen and bathrooms, 2 queen size beds & 1 single, ducted heating and cooling.

Elevated on its own privite winter creek, surrounded by beautiful native gardens, on approximately one acre,

Hidden Valley Retreat is a perfect place to just sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet whilst watching and listening to the array of native birds.

Or on warm summer days nestle into your hammock under the bows of the willow tree and let your imagination take you away.

At night you have 18 lamps to play with to set any mood your heart desires

With a short easy stroll you are in the hub of Castlemaines shops, gallerys & restaurants.

Daylesford, Maldon and Bendigo are all within a 30 minute drive

This truly is one of Castlemaine’s gems of tranquillity in the heart of town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TRANQUIL The property was more than we expected, extremely spotless, furnished beautifully and very relaxing. Host Annie was so friendly and very informative of Castlemaine, we so enjoyed every aspect of Hidden Valley Retreat and Castlemaine. Thank You

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely beautiful! My partner and I recently spent a weekend at Annie's property and absolutely loved it. We had a good chuckle walking around the house counting the lamps, Annie you have a great sense of humour! The property was lovely and clean, bright, airy and private and within walking distance to some great eateries, markets and local sites. We enjoyed sitting down by the winter creek spotting frogs and bird watching and enjoying the morning sun on the balcony before heading off for breakfast before playing an acoustic set for the nesting Gallahs in the gum out the front :) The Rolling Stone picture book and alternative CD collection was right up our alley too. Thanks Annie for your lovely hospitality and we hope to visit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely house We often stay in self contained houses on our holidays and this was the best we have ever stayed in. Lovely house in a nice quiet location and very close to town in Castlemaine. We had everything we needed and it was great having two sitting rooms - loved reading in the red chair! It was very cold when we were there but the central heating meant the house was always warm. Our host Annie was great and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super accommodation Thoroughly enjoyed a two night stay. Accommodation was beautifully furnished and equipped to a high standard. We could have stayed much longer. We have travelled quite a lot in Australia but have never met such a friendly owner as Annie. She even rang us on our second day to check that we were cool enough.
