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 Lovely part of the world Kirrily and Matt were very welcoming and accomodating. The school house has been transformed into a wonderfully fitted out little getaway in a beautiful part of the world. Matt and Kirrily are wonderful enough to share it with others! Maggie and Rocky the alpacas were also a cute extra :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 star and above We have just stayed in the most comfortable, stylish, homely, well thought out accommodation ever. Everything you need it here. Even a log burner which we had roaring in the evenings. Felt amazing. We came here to relax and unwind, this place gave us the ability to do just that. And we will be back. I will be recommending this place to all my friends as it is a very special place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Schoolhouse to cosy cottage This property has been beautifully restored by top quality tradesmen who turned this old schoolhouse into a very cosy little cottage with everything we needed for a truly relaxing holiday. Excellent location with heaps of privacy and with all the convenience of good quality appliances, furniture, toiletries and great TV & WiFi reception. We even had a message sent to our mobile to see if we needed any more firewood as the nights were turning very cold but the supply left in the cottage was more than enough.
