Stunning Old World Architecture to the finest detail is admired and enjoyed by guests at Running Creek Castle bed & breakfast. Surrounded by expansive manicured gardens and overlooking a small spring fed lake Running Creek Castle offers a level of privacy and tranquility to even the most fastidious guest.

Located in the Kancoona Valley between Bright and Mt Beauty, Running Creek Castle is at the foot of the Victorian Alps and still only 45 minutes drive from Albury/Wodonga. We also enjoy the close proximity to Historic Beechworth and Yackandandah together with the Alpine Wine Region and the many gourmet treats on offer in this exceptional part of Victoria.

Running Creek Castle is ideal for people seeking the ultimate in a romantic or family getaway and makes the bed & breakfast experience a special and memorable one.


The magnificence of the castle becomes more apparent the closer you come to it. The detail in the building is of a era long gone but still admired by many. The previous owner, Garry Morgan built the castle over six stages and incorporated materials of historical significance which he has collected over a long period of time and was awarded the MBA Builder of the Year - north east region in 2007 for the complexity and craftsmanship clearly on display at Running Creek Castle.

There are two self contained suites within the castle building, each on three levels and comprising of private outside entry/vestibule, lounge area with queen size sofa bed, kitchen with a gas cook-top (no oven), microwave and equipped with everything you need, private bathroom, one loft style bedroom (with either king or queen bed) which overlooks the lounge and a second bedroom with one tri-bunk bed and one single bed. Therefore, each suite can sleep a maximum of 8 people. The suites are gas heated for optimum guest comfort on chilly Alpine nights. Foxtel is available from each suite lounge.

Please note that there are two sets of 14 steps between each level.


Guests at Running Creek Castle cannot help but relax! From every direction there are superb mountainous views which can be admired from the balcony while enjoying a glass of wine, from the turret or any of the comfortable outdoor areas as well as from the suites. Within the grounds there are beautiful gardens to explore and help you unwind. There is an in-ground solar-heated salt water pool and squash court. For the kids a fabulous play ground with swings, slides, sandpit and multistorey play facility will keep them entertained for days.

Breakfast is provided to the suites for guests to prepare at their leisure, and includes cereal, yogurt, milk, juice, bacon, eggs, tomatoes, toast, tea and coffee. Gluten free items can be supplied on request.

Guests can also take advantage of the BBQ areas on offer on the front balcony or on the pool deck.

For the fisherman, Running Creek is a great place to spend a few relaxing hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect place to unwind!!! We really enjoyed our stay at Running Creek Castle. After showing us around and making sure we had everything we needed, Janice and Glenn gave us complete privacy. The very generous breakfast basket full of local produce was delicious. After reading reviews I was concerned about being cold at night, but I needn't have worried. We were lovely and warm with the gas heating and electric blankets. The kids thought their room was really cool with comfy beds. We all enjoyed exploring the grounds and walking along the creek. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
