Yarra Ranges Cosy Mountain Retreat is a 17 acre property adjoining the Yarra Ranges National Park and the O’Shannassy Aqueduct walking / cycling trail. Accommodation is in a beautifully designed mud brick cottage: Red Earth Cottage - for your exclusive use.
The cottage is self-contained, with two open plan bedrooms one downstairs and one upstairs each with a very comfortable queen sized bed. There is a lounge area, dining space, kitchen, and bathroom, with a shower and a separate bath. Cooking facilities include: electric hot plates; a microwave oven; a small bench top convection oven, barbeque, toaster, kettle, fridge and a range of cooking utensils, glassware, crockery and cutlery. Sorry, but the slow combustion stove is not available for use.
You can prepare meals for yourself in the cottage, or take a 10 minute drive to Warburton, with its many delightful cafes and restaurants. It is also an easy drive to the wonderful wineries / restaurants / galleries that can be found in the Yarra Valley.
The cottage is set in a lovely and peaceful garden, with abundant birdlife and spectacular views of the mountain. The space is very conducive to meditation, yoga, the creative arts – or just reading a novel and regenerating. For film buffs, there is an extensive and much appreciated DVD collection.
Yarra Ranges Cosy Mountain Retreat is well suited to couples wanting to leave the stress of the city behind, yoga practitioners and artists seeking a peaceful and picturesque space in nature, cyclists and bushwalkers wanting to enjoy the lovely forest trails, and families for fun times together connecting with the serenity of nature.
The cottage is ideal for 2 adults or a small family. Children, no more than 2, stay for free. It is not suitable for 4 adults.
Due to the wildlife around the property, unfortunately we cannot allow any cats or dogs to stay with you as guests.
Your resident host, Paul, lives in a separate house on the property and is available during your stay should you require anything. The cottage has private parking and access.
