Luxury accommodation on 2 landscaped acres. For the family, or group of adults headed off for the weekend, either for skiing or boarding on Mt Hotham, or for enjoying all that Harrietville, Bright and the Alpine high country have to offer.

There are two coonara fires and an electric heater, as well as two Dyson portable heaters.

The house has 3 bedrooms sleeping 6 adults comfortably, with extra sofa beds and mattresses available for larger groups on request. The main bedroom has a walk in wardrobe and an ensuite. The main bathroom has a bath and shower.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, DeLonghi expresso machine, pressure cooker and other appliances.

There are 2 lounge areas, both with fireplaces. The house has both indoor dining and an outdoor table overlooking the beautiful lily-pond, ideal for breakfast.

Activities include swimming in the in-ground pool, or playing foosball or darts. There are indoor and outdoor reading and relaxing areas, and BBQ facilities and outdoor dining by the pool.

The property is surrounded by unlimited hiking trails, close to skiing adventures, wineries, great restaurants, hang gliding and paragliding and natural swimming holes.

We specialise in large groups, having hosted more than twenty on multiple occasions. There is an adjacent Cottage also available for rent. All year round it's the perfect destination for large groups. Get in early to find a time when they're both still available to make this much easier for you.

For snow lovers staying in the winter there's a shed outside with racks for ski and snow boarding equipment. The rock chimney inside the house is great for drying any clothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best property It was amazing. Everything was great and we had a lot of fun.The location of house was great and it had everything we needed.if I had an option to rate it more than 5 stars I would love to . Just one thing that could make the house way more better is getting rid of the spider webs that's a little bit of concern but overall again it's amazing . Thanks u so much we had such a great stay. Would really like to come here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful peaceful property We spent a week at the serene Pick and Shovel Homestead. As soon as you drive up the driveway of The Pick and Shovel Homestead, the immaculate gardens and friendly Kangaroos were there to greet us. The home had such a cosy ambiance and yet was so cool on the warm days. The decor is warm and welcoming and our family immediately felt at home. The pick and Shovel Homestead is walking distance to the town and we enjoyed meals out and also found every thing we needed to cook at the home some nights. Our two small dogs loved the space to chase the ball outside. The pool is solar heated which was wonderful for children, and was well used every day. Our beds were super comfortable with fresh linen provided and the house felt fresh and clean. What a beautiful outdoor area for breakfast over looking the extensive Lilly pond full of gorgeous pink lilies. This was a perfect spot for me to escape to draw and read a book in the comfortable reclining chairs under the shaded trees. What a perfect place for any family wanting a relaxing break in blissful surrounds. Many Thanks to Greg the owner for his kindness, polite assistance and effort he has put into his beautiful home to make our stay so memorable. The Dalziel family

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific property for large group gathering We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Pick and Shovel Homestead which included the option to have the house and the adjacent two bedroom cottage. Greg our host was very helpful both in the lead up and on our immediate arrival and we did (eventually!) manage to get the Wifi working! Our group of 12 aged between 8 and 82 years all thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous amenities including 4 inside and 2 outside good sized 'social spaces' where we had options to sit and watch the children in the pool, or on the opposite side of the house, eat on the large deck while listening to the frogs & enjoying the open lilies on the pond. The kids too enjoyed the soccer table and darts, and the great spaces both on the property and nearby to enjoy their bikes and skateboard. The area of Harrietville is brilliantly located near Hotham (45 mins) and Bright (15 mins) but sufficiently away from both so that you feel you are really away from it all! The property itself with its garden was just stunning, and our international guests were thrilled to see a little family of roos and hear the kookaburras on a number of occasions. Inside, the three open fire places were fabulous in the evenings, and the provided chopped wood made this all so easy. Our only constructive feedback would be with regards to how to 'work' some of the appliances in the main home. Things like the coffee machine, Dish washer and Wifi were all things we ended up working out through trial, error and looking up things on the internet. So a booklet wiht this detail laid out would have been helpful. Also, the pool was not clean and could have done with being topped up, and while we were happy to try to do this ourselves, the only equipment available seemed to be broken. Overall though, we thoroughly enjoyed our time in your beautiful home Greg and would love to be able to return one day. Thank you.
