Guests often search for this popular amenity
A cute and charming cottage ideal for a country getaway. The cottage is cosy and fireplace way too inviting, so relax by the warmth with a book.
Fall asleep to the sounds of the frogs in the creek, pick up some fresh loaves from the artisan bakery just down the dirt-road, stock up on local produce from the nearby Farmer's Market (Saturday mornings) and take a 15min stroll into town to explore Castlemaine. Great walking trails are just minutes away.

The space
The cottage itself was originally a single-bed miner's cottage for a family of 7! It is now a two-bedroom retreat with modern bathroom / kitchen, laundry and a two-car garage. The backyard gets the best sun in the afternoons (perfect for cheese and wine!) while the front is great to sit at sunrise and sunset where you might be lucky enough to catch the roos hopping down the road towards the park.
