Description

Situated at the base of Mt Buffalo, in NE Victoria, the Lodge is an impressive handcrafted building constructed from local timber built on the site of an old Cattleman's hut from the 1930s. It has a 7 metre vaulted ceiling supported by huge load bearing timber beams. The glass front to the building provides breathtaking views of Mt Buffalo gorge whilst your dine inside.

With 3 fully equipped bedrooms. The 1st floor is occupied by an indulgent master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a spa bath with views across virgin forest. Downstairs there are luxurious queen and double bedrooms, with a shared bathroom that includes a shower and an elegant cast iron claw-foot bath.

Things to Do

The spectacular luxury accommodation contains everything you should need for your stay, including a small library of books and DVDs, a selection of indoor and outdoor games, a telescope to watch climbers and hang glider pilots on Mt Buffalo and a high power spotlight to track the deer, owls, wombats and possums that occupy the grounds at night. For this reason our property is strictly no pets allowed.

For the more adventurous, the lodge provides easy access to and walking trails as well as being located at the bottom of one of the best cycling climbs in Australia. The region is an outdoor playground for children and adults alike.

The secluded location also means that there is no phone connection and no TV reception - our guests seem to like it that way Mobile phone reception is limited.

We can also arrange for a personal chef to cook you a fabulous 3 course meal, with or without wine for our guests.

Grounds and Fire Safety

Scattered around the grounds are approximately 60 fruit trees, planted as rent by those who stayed in the original hut throughout the years. We'd love you to help yourselves to our organic lemons and limes and whatever other fruit you can find during your stay.

Our property is managed in accordance with Land for Wildlife, a voluntary scheme that encourages and assists private landowners to provide habitats for wildlife on their property. We provide a spotlight for guests to search for animals at night. You are likely to see wombats, wallabies, kookaburras, lyre birds and even occasionally the rare yellow bellied gliding possum on our property. For this reason our property is strictly no pets allowed.

We take fire safety seriously and have constructed the house to comply with the draft Australian Standard for houses in high bush fire risk areas the standard that has now been applied to all rural homes since the Black Saturday fires . It is built on a concrete base, clad in a naturally fire resistant timber, all the external roof timber is painted with fire resistant paint and there is an external sprinkler system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, secluded property. The perfect getaway. Spent 3 fantastic nights at Red Earth Lodge and despite the cold weather outside, inside there were no complaints. The clear days gave us spectacular views of Mt Buffalo from the front windows and visits from wombats and a sambar deer hind during lunch was a highlight. All amenities were perfectly maintained and allowed us to cook for ourselves and also have the talented chef, Nat Filippi to look after us one night. Proximity to Mt Buffalo hiking trails, Bright restaurants (there's a shuttle bus service) and the surrounding wineries made this the perfect base camp to explore the area.
