Located on a tranquil hilltop with a lovely green outlook and rural vistas, this simple, comfortable 2 bedroom self-contained cottage is less than 10 minutes drive from the historic town of Beechworth.
Perfect for families or couples. Small well-behaved furry friends also welcome!
The cottage is located on our peaceful 5 acre rural property surrounded by bushland and farms. The cottage has a simple, comfortable contemporary style and is tucked among the trees with a lovely leafy green outlook.
The cottage is fully self-contained, featuring an open plan living area with large kitchen, main bedroom with comfortable queen size bed, second bedroom with a king single plus bunk beds, and a bathroom with washing machine. Wander a few steps from the verandah to soak up the wonderful views of the surrounding countryside! Not a neighbour in sight, despite being located in central Stanley, just a few minutes walk to The Stanley Pub.
There's a slow combustion wood heater to keep you cozy in winter (please be aware this is the main source of heating - it will burn overnight for up to 8 hours and will easily warm the whole cottage). Ceiling fans provide a breeze in summer (in keeping with our environmental ethic there is no air-conditioning). The cottage has also been designed using solar passive principles to keep the heat out in summer but allow the sunshine in during winter, and has excellent insulation.
The cottage is just 8 minutes drive to the beautiful historic town of Beechworth. There are also many beautiful forest reserves to go bushwalking, bike riding or take your dog for a run. We provide an info sheet with all our favourite spots to visit.
Bright is 45 minutes away. Mount Buffalo, perfect for day trips to the snow (we're most happy to loan you a couple of toboggans and snow gear!), is a little over an hour away, while Falls Creek and Mount Hotham take around 2 hours to reach.
Our home is also located on the property, however the cottage is tucked behind the trees for privacy and has a separate parking area. We respect your privacy and won't come knocking on your door unexpectedly. Guests are welcome to wander the property and enjoy the vistas.
Interaction with guests
The cottage is fully self-contained and we respect your privacy so you generally won't see much of us. However, we are very happy to provide local information about places to eat, sight see and bushwalk.
