Perfect Group Accomodation
Great House. Great Location. Great Host. The perfect house for a large group to get away from Melbourne for the week.
Erica Lowing - Host Extraordinaire
Delightfully rustic and historic. Extremely clean with comfortable beds, ample bathroom facilities and well appointed kitchen. Great outdoor undercover area overlooking lovely flowering gardens with abundant native bird life.
Our host, Erica Lowing, should get a tourism award.
A yearly traditional getaway for our group
This is our second stay at the amazing Kilmuir spot just out of Mansfield and is something that my group of friends and myself treat as our Christmas. Erica is a fantastic host who comes to greet you and help ensure that your stay is absolutely worth it!
A welcome addition this year for us was was 'Ziggy' belonging to Erica who is beautiful kelpie dog who wondered over to say hello and ended up joining us for majority of the stay and enjoying our backyard sport games and relaxing on the decking with us.
The facilities are well equipped with everything you need for your stay and I cannot recommend this place enough to everyone I speak to in regards to a retreat away from the city.
Stunning location and great facilities.
We stayed here for the week end with 17 people. The surroundings were stunning, the beds were very cosy and comfortable and we were very impressed with all the facilities. The host was extremely helpful and very accommodating. We will be back for another beautiful get away in the future.
Fantastic group accomodation
We had a great weekend away at kilmuir house. The house and backyard entertaining area is superb. We had 16 people stay and had no troubles at all fitting. Erica was a great host. We will definitely be back again next year.
What an awesome place! We had 4 families with kids who were older teenage/ early twenties and there was something for everyone, with enough space for everyone to have a great weekend. The renovated shearers’ quarters still retain their charm, but were also very comfortable. The separate bedrooms were cosy, each opening onto the front or back veranda. Small heaters in each room were more than enough to take the edge off the crisp Mansfield mornings. The big kitchen was ideal for our group of 16 and the lounge room was perfect to sit by the fire. We had good weather, so eating in the spacious outdoor living area or sitting on the veranda in the afternoon was a treat.
Erica was the perfect host. She showed us around the farm, which was full of history, including the old shearing shed, which is still in use. Some of our group were bush walkers, so Erica provided us with lots of local knowledge regarding walks. She even went into the tourist centre herself one day to pick up more information for us!
A great holiday venue - highly recommended!
