Step back in time, relax and unwind in The Old Vectis Lutheran School circa 1894. This building has been completely rejuvenated and brought back to life, with studio style living in the main school room.

Set on twenty acres, it is just a short drive to Mount Arapiles, Horsham and the Wimmera River. A little further afield, find yourself day tripping in the Grampians or Coonawarra wine region. Alternatively, just stay in with a good book in front of the cosy wood fire.

Other Important Information

The main school room encompasses a queen bed and set of bunks with a trundle bed. This is shared with a living and dining area that overlooks trees and paddocks. Along with a cosy wood fire, there is split system heating/cooling. Off the main room is a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, with a washer/dryer on-site for longer stays. Outside is also a private paved area with BBQ and outdoor dining facilities. Each guest receives one complimentary drink at the National Hotel, Natimuk.

The property is just a 10 minute drive from Horsham and Natimuk. Natimuk is a lovely, little town nestled in the shadow of Mount Arapiles, which is world famous for its rock climbing. Enjoy a cold drink and a warm meal at the National Hotel with friendly publican Bill and his staff. There is also a cafe open fri, sat and sun, milk bar with fish'n'chip shop and post office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Stunning Wow! We were so very chuffed to drive up the tree lined driveway and see the Schoolhouse to our left. The owners of this property have lovingly restored it in a manner that is simply stunning - a mix of old and new. We were more than relaxed watching the colours of the trees change through the massive windows as the sun set behind us. The little touches such as a selection of locally sourced wine and goodies for purchase, made the evening more relaxing. The owners have honestly thought of everything and you'd be hard pressed to find something that is missing. Bliss!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully restored and thoughtfully kitted out This place is a gem! From the moment we arrived we had a sense of how much care has gone into restoring this schoolhouse. Everything is completed to a high spec and the furnishings and crockery do a wonderful job of giving a nod to this history gone by. This place is a delight, easy to find from the directions provided, very private, generous provisions for breakfast (we had hamper 2 these options come with the booking confirmation) and Kirrily was friendly and responsive to the questions I raised leading up to our visit.
