Karoonda Olive Grove Retreat at Mt Buffalo Olives is a fully air-conditioned rural retreat. Perfect for a romantic escape, an anniversary, special occasion or a weekend (or week) away.

As the only guests on the property at any time, your resident hosts, Elisa and Colin, look forward to providing you a very special holiday experience.

We are nestled into the foot of Mount Buffalo and central to the most popular tourist attractions in the North East of Victoria including Bright, the ski fields, Myrtleford, Mt Beauty and historic Beechworth and in the heart of the Great Alpine Valleys famous for its regional produce, gourmet food and exquisite wine.

The cottage is smartly appointed with leather furniture, a fully equipped kitchen including stainless steel appliances and quality linen in the bedroom and bathroom. An 11 metre swimming pool with glorious views of the Ovens Valley and the Victorian Alps is just outside your door. In winter enjoy the warmth of the pot belly stove with all firewood provided or the instant heat of the split system heater.

Our unique cottage offers many natural attractions. It sits at the top of our 50 acre farm, overlooking the olive grove. We bound the Mount Buffalo National Park and have the privilege of sharing our property with kangaroos, wombats, possums and an amazing mix of native bird life including rosellas, wrens, robins, parrots and Wedge Tail Eagles. A 10 minute drive takes you to the Lady's Bath and Eurobin waterfalls at the foot of Mount Buffalo, a further 20 minutes drive will take you to the top of the Mount Buffalo Plateau and one of the most stunning National Parks in Australia.

Along with relaxing on the deck or sitting by the pool you can wander through the olive grove or walk around the property border taking in the views of the Mount Buffalo Gorge. For the more energetic, bring your bicycle and ride the Murray to the Mountains Rail Trail and ride into Bright or Myrtleford and beyond. The serious cyclist can ride the Mount Buffalo Ascent to the historic Chalet.

The cottage is ideal for a couple but will accommodate four people. It has one bedroom on a mezzanine floor with a queen size bed and an easy chair that converts to a full size single bed. The leather lounge in the living room (downstairs) converts to a queen size bed. We can also provide a porta cot.

This relaxing setting is less than a 10 minute drive to Bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Weekend Away Thank you Colin and Elisa for a beautiful weekend! The cottage is too cute for words and the breakfast basket is a beautiful touch. The property is stunning and in a great location. Was excellent to find a place where we could take our dog and have some peace and quiet. Would highly recommend and we'll definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great property We had a fantastic stay. The cottage is well equipped, clean and spacious. Swimming in the pool each afternoon was a great treat as was roaming around the 50 acre property. Plenty to do within a short distance- Mount Buffalo hikes, eating in Bright, and visiting nearby wineries. We will definitely stay here again with Colin and Elisa.
