Mel was a really great host, we stayed there for work and I couldn't recommend her propetry more highly.
Despite the somewhat rustic outside appearance inside is a lovely calm sanctuary. Beautifully decorated and easy to call home for a couple of days.
Would definitely come back
This was a perfect home to spend our weekend away. 3 bedrooms was just what we needed for a ladies weekend away plus pet friendly for our fur kids.
Nice touches with home made biscuits, tea coffee and milk. Recommended place to stay
Thank you Mel
My pleasure Sue! I'm so glad you enjoyed our bush retreat. I hope you all had a fabulous time in Bendigo :)
A piece of heaven
This place was so welcoming. Generous in size and loaded with amenities. The house is decorated in beautiful artwork, the furniture is comfortable and the kitchen works really well. The host was generous in providing many extras including cookies and popcorn in addition to plenty of towels and wash clothes. An excellent place to stay within walking distance to much of the city.
Charming and Cosy
A charming and cosy home, restored and decorated with great love and affection. Very warm and well lit. Fully kitted kitchen and neat bathroom. Location-wise a little out of the city-centre, but still a comfortably walkable distance. Great communication from the owner and some beautiful ANZAC biscuits left to welcome us.

Bendigo's arthouse cinema The Star is located a little further north of Ironbark in Eaglehawk and definitely worth a visit.
