Yarra Ranges Cosy Mountain Retreat is a 17 acre property adjoining the Yarra Ranges National Park and the O’Shannassy Aqueduct walking / cycling trail. Accommodation is in a beautifully designed mud brick cottage: Red Earth Cottage - for your exclusive use.
The cottage is self-contained, with two open plan bedrooms (one downstairs and one upstairs) each with a very comfortable queen sized bed. There is a lounge area, dining space, kitchen, and bathroom, with a shower and a separate bath. Cooking facilities include: a slow combustion oven; electric hot plates; a microwave oven; a small bench top convection oven, barbeque, toaster, kettle, fridge and a range of cooking utensils, glassware, crockery and cutlery.
It is set in a lovely and peaceful garden, with abundant birdlife and spectacular views of the mountain. The space is very conducive to meditation, yoga, the creative arts – or just reading a novel and regenerating. For film buffs, there is an extensive and much appreciated DVD collection.
The space is the place to take a break from the fast pace of electronic communications. Mobile phone coverage here is patchy: reception in the cottage is poor – but there is reception at the back of the property. Satellite internet is available and it can be used to access emails and browse the web – but it is not suitable for streaming video or audio.
Yarra Ranges Cosy Mountain Retreat is well suited to couples wanting to leave the stress of the city behind, yoga practitioners and artists seeking a peaceful and picturesque space in nature, cyclists and bushwalkers wanting to enjoy the lovely forest trails, and families for fun times together connecting with the serenity of nature.
The cottage is ideal for 2 adults or a small family. Children, no more than 2, stay for free. It is not suitable for 4 adults
