We stayed two nights in the Lakeview suite at this stunning farm retreat. The property is set high on a ridge overlooking the Gippsland lakes and has fantastic views down to Paynesville. Day and night, in any weather there is something beautiful to see. The Lakeview suite is spacious, well appointed and very comfortable. The hosts are welcoming and friendly. If you’re looking for a relaxing break away from the crowds yet within driving distance of some of the most beautiful places Gippsland has to offer then this is the place for you.

I recently spent four nights here to simply "have a break" from Melbourne. I loved my stay, and wished I could have stayed longer. I spent one night in The Burrow and three nights in Lakeview. The layout and space in both was lovely, but I loved the view from Lakeview - I could have just stayed there and enjoyed the view for days more!

Graham and Debbie built a unique place there - it was my first time to be exposed to such level of sustainable living architecture. It was about +40C outside, but thanks to the really unique architecture there was like +25C inside, and no air conditioning whatsoever! Most of the furniture is built by Graham out of recycled timber, and the atmosphere is very cosy and pleasant. Being a beginner woodworker I loved having a long chat with Graham about what he does... In short - wonderful experience and most definitely would visit again!

What a perfect way to unwind after a few days of business in Melbourne. A night here is not enough as we travel onto Sydney. Quiet seclusion is in order if you stay in this beautiful B&B with delightful hosts. Fall asleep to a star filled sky and awaken to Kookaburras in a comfy fully equipped self contained area. The fridge is stocked with bacon and eggs, fresh bread milk and butter and cereals and jams are on the side for you to do your own breakfast. Delightful- we will be back but for longer next time!!
