“What a magical place! Dean is a beautiful soul and a caring host who went out of his way to make my stay perfect and to make sure I had everything I needed. He encouraged me to pick as much as I wanted from his beautiful veggie and herb garden and provided a generous breakfast. The cabin is comfortable, decorated beautifully and has everything you could want, including an amazing selection of herbal teas. It also has a fire pit, which sadly I didn't get time to use although Dean kindly offered to light it. The property itself is stunning with beautiful views, lots of trees and even a swing overlooking the view (which was a fabulous surprise!). Plenty of kookaburras and other birds around, which were lovely to wake up to in the morning. Dean was always around if I needed him, and we had some lovely chats, but also ensured I had plenty of privacy. I will be back! A beautiful experience. Thank you Dean :)”
The Little House on the Hill at the eastern end of Warburton overlooks the chooks, the veggie patch, the orchard and across the valley to gorgeous 270° views. It is next door to the Big House, set on an acre that slopes down to the Yarra River. A great swimming spot on hot days and a good way to access the town and the rail trail (five minutes there, maybe ten minutes return - uphill). There are plenty of lovely walks nearby including the Aqueduct Trail that starts further up the hill.
“Book the place because of work trip. The place is up on a hill, for someone who love forestry view this is the perfect place. I woke up every morning looking at the greenery and misty mountains. Get to set my foot on the East Warburton Redwood Forest on my last day, there are heaps of places for hiking as well for those who are into hiking. Love the fresh air and the sound of the chooks. The place is well equipped with basic amenities. And Bruce and Melinda is just a phone call away.”
The Warburton Bus is situated on the Yarra River flats and has fantastic views of Mt. Victoria. The Bus is comfortable and fully self contained. It is close to the conveniences of Warburton township yet quiet and peaceful.
“We had a blast here! Melissa and Rob were so welcoming and wonderful, and my boys loved sleeping in the bus, pretending to drive the bus, and the pony rides!!! The games room was also great and overall, highly recommend for anyone looking for a different type of holidaying experience. The bus has everything you need and is a massive step up from camping, and was really comfortable. The value is also excellent. Very fun, very quirky, and great hosts! We will be back!”
