Its features include a drying area for your wet gear in snow season, reverse cycle air conditioner, full size fridge, 50' LED TV, DVD player, washing machine and dryer, fully equipped kitchen and cooking facilities,( Includes all pots, pans, cutlery, crockery, utensils ) bed linen, towels, BBQ and outdoor fireplace. We also supply the Chapel with tea & coffee, juice, bread ,eggs, milk and other breakfast condiments. All linen, towels,etc. are supplied. The Chapel can sleep up to 12 people maximum but 10 would be easier, with a double bedroom downstairs, 6 singles and two double futons upstairs. * (For larger groups we have more accommodation available on the property so please enquire. ) Black Horse Park is centrally and ideally located; 15 mins to Mansfield township 20 mins to Mt Buller 10 mins to Goughs Bay / Lake Eildon, 15 mins to Macs Cove, Howqua Inlet and Jamieson. While in the high country why not pack a picnic lunch and take a leisurely drive to the King Valley wine region, stopping at Powers Lookout along the way, it's simply breathtaking. When you arrive at Whitfield (approx. 45 mins.) you're biggest decision will be which winery to go to, there's about ten in the area...... Oh just try them all! Black Horse Park is an all year round holiday location. The area caters for: Snow skiing / snowboarding at Mt Buller, fishing / swimming at the Delatite River (just 2mins away), horse riding in Mansfield State Forest / Victorian High Country, mountain biking / cycling at the rail trail and Mt Buller ( We have bikes and helmets available for hire) four wheel driving and exploring, golf at Mansfield Golf Club or just enjoy a gourmet platter and a glass of fine local wine at one of the local wineries. Lake Eildon is only 10 minutes away so why not bring your boat, we have heaps of room to park it safely. Goughs Bay has three great concrete ramps so you can always access the lake no matter what the water level is. Besides all the usual water sport activities you should try the bars, restaurants on the waters edge, just pull up, tie up and enjoy. These are just a few of the wonderful activities on offer in this amazing area. If you would like to bring you're horse and ride the vast expanses of the Victorian High Country, it's on our doorstep, with endless tracks to ride you'll be amazed at the breathtaking scenery and awesome riding trails. We have excellent horse friendly paddocks and four post and rail yards with water and washing facilities and plenty of room to park the float. You don't even have to bring your own hay as we have plenty of good quality grass hay here you can buy at a very reasonable price. Your horse can stay for $10 per night or if you can't bring a horse along we can arrange local horses and guides for you. ( subject to availability) We know you would enjoy your stay here at Black Horse Park and hope to see you soon Kindest Regards Rob and Helen HartMore
