The local supermarket (Coles) is open til midnight and there is an organic farmers market on every Saturday morning until 1pm, or just head down into Healesville and enjoy some of the fantastic local cafe's and restaurants.

The cabin is heated by a full size Coonara wood heater as well as a split system for heating and cooling (please ask for assistance if you do not know how to light the fire). There are also fans for summer.

We ask if you can please remove your shoes when entering the cabin.

There are loads of bicycle and walking tracks nearby. You can bring your own bicycles, or you can laze around our property and admire the scenery, wildlife, including kangaroos, echidnas and our horses. Please note pets are not permitted.

We have adequate paddocks for you to bring a couple of horses which you can ride out from the property.

During your stay

During your stay, we will give you plenty of privacy as the cabin is situated away from the main home, but if you need assistance, we are often tending to our own animals and the property. Feel free to stop for a chat or recommendations on where to wine, dine, shop or ride.
