Horseshoe House was so named because our toddler spotted the lucky horseshoe on the front door, that we had not noticed until we had completely settled in... We hope does not conjure up images of horses in the front yard, although there are quite a few around the corner

for longer stays, or stays with a few extra people/full house for a minimum of 3 nights, please contact me so I can see to giving you and your party a discount stays of 4 nights or more will be considered for substantial discounts or a free extra night

HH is a family oriented, spacious, 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house.

The 4 bedrooms include:

- Master bedroom with Queen bed and a full bathroom ensuite shower, toilet & vanity

- Main bathroom with bath & shower combination, toilet & vanity

- Large bedroom with Queen bed with BIR

- Large bedroom with one Double bed and two Singles with BIR

- 4th bedroom used mainly as a games room kids / teen retreat. It has its own TV, DVD player, Wii / Playstation console with lots of games, and movies, toys for all ages, boardgames and books.

All bedrooms have a lush, green outlook of picturesque Warburton scenery All linen and bedding is provided.

The large living area is spacious enough to fit the whole family, with large, comfortable couches, yet can be cosy enough for a snuggle or a read by the wood fireplace. It also has a big screen TV with USB capability, and is the heart of the house, opening up to the modern, open plan Chef's Kitchen and Dining. The table can be extended to accommodate up to 8 people.

Horseshoe House is extremely Child Friendly There are plenty of activities on top of the games room to keep young minds and bodies active. From a rocking horse, colouring in books and crayons for wet days in, to a sand pit with Tonka Trucks and slide for sunny days outside. Kids under 2 stay free - there is a port-a-cot you may use; you will need to provide the cot bedding.

We are also Dog Friendly, no cats I'm sorry, we are allergic and we find they don't stay in designated zones so easily we request that when inside pets are only allowed in the laundry and games room as some of our guests may have pet allergies. It should also be noted that our fencing is not entirely secure - our local wombat is responsible for this.

The bathroom has a full-sized bath tub and shower. You are welcome to use the washing machine in our laundry, and try out the clothes airer of yesteryear above the fireplace.

The dishwasher will also be very helpful with those wine glasses.

At HH we are trying to offer something we believe is necessary for the area - THE GENUINELY AFFORDABLE FAMILY HOLIDAY. For this reason we may not have the hot tub spa, but for the price we do offer clean and comfortable accommodation that suits a couple, or a couple of couples, or a couple of couples and their kids. We hope you appreciate Horseshoe House as much as we do.

Oh, and the birds The yard will be literally littered with the beautiful colours of these native beauties we will also supply the seed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect weekend get-away especially in winter!! A perfect weekend respite- 15 minutes to stroll to the lovely village, 20 minutes drive to be in the snow! Gorgeous green, misty, hilly views and a perfect wood fire to keep us warm. Rooms were great, everything very comfortable and clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect location We really enjoyed our stay at Horseshoe House. It was perfectly positioned between town and tourist attractions, including mt Donna buang summit (the toboggan was very well used!) and treetop walks. It's a great sized house with plenty of things to entertain both adults and children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect family getaway We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Horseshoe House with our friends. We were two families in total and the set up was ideal, very kid friendly (lots of toys and games, high chair and portacot) and a great location, and affordable too. Jess was a very responsive and thoughtful host. Warburton is beautiful, lots to do and see. We hope to be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful weekend in Warburton I will recommend renting this house. It was light, spacious and clean. Our children (6and 4) enjoyed the playroom so much that we had to drag them out to go for a walk in Warburton. Jessica wrote a welcoming guide and including many details about what to do in the area and where to dine. It was really helpful. We thoroughly enjoy our stay there. Such a shame we didn't get to see the famous wombat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, homey and spacious! As soon as we arrived at Horseshoe House my wife and I both commented on the cleanliness and spaciousness of the get away. Dealing with the manager Jessica was a pleasure as she was both prompt and professional in replying to any of our inquiries. There is a fantastic resource provided that lets you know about the surrounding area for things to see, do and eat. A bargain for the quality of accomodation for sure. We will definitely be coming back! Thanks very much for our stay! We loved it!!!
