Was very impressed with the presentation, cleanliness and the exceptional hospitality we received from the owners. They went above and beyond what we would have expected. Defiantly would recommend this place they even went to the trouble of organising an in house massage by a very professional masseuse.
Judy and Lou are fantastic hosts. Everything was perfect during our stay in the Guest Room. The breakfast was so delicious too. It is one of the best B&B we have been staying. The location is great also, close to Castlemaine which is a very interesting town to visit and surrounded by world class wineries. Perfect place for a relaxing week-end. Thank you so much Judy and Lou, we will come back.
Judy and Lou made us feel very comfortable in their home and doted on my son who had an "amazing" time, enjoying homemade raspberry lemonade and patting the animals. I cannot speak highly enough.
Just 1.5 hours drive from Melbourne and with Castlemaine on its doorstep, Haven on Barkers is a gorgeous B&B set in tranquil surrounds. The room was meticulous, clean and well appointed and we felt relaxed as soon as we stepped inside. We had everything we needed and more thanks to our most attentive hosts, Judi and Lou. The spa bath was great for relaxing after our long walk in the Castlemaine Diggings and in the morning we were spoiled by our hosts with a yummy cooked breakfast. There are friendly goats and a miniature horse on the property which we said hello to as we took a stroll to admire the native plants and pretty flower beds. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this little gem to anyone.
The accommodation (like a unit) was modern, large, warm and extremely well set up. The hosts made us feel so welcome, on arrival there was music playing, the unit was warmed, and a baked cheesecake for afternoon tea was served. The cheese platter with wine that we ordered for the evening, was beautiful! Fresh fruit, a range of cheeses and crackers combined with good wine, was a feast! Thanks for the stay!
