A full length verandah faces west for views of the Pyrenees ranges, whilst an east facing verandah is perfect for breakfast in the morning sunshine.

The Cottage is situated on the top of a hill behind a small Olive Grove within sight of the Highway. Away from the road it slopes down towards the Bet Bet Creek which forms the boundary of the 50 acre property.

Locality

Situated centrally for exploring the historic goldfield towns of Avoca, Talbot, Dunolly, Majorca and of course Maryborough with its arts and crafts,and antique markets.

A short drive through Avoca takes you to the vineyards of the Pyrenees region with its cellar door sales and restaurants.

About John Currie

The property has been in our family since 1864 forming part of a lager farm. It came to myself on the death of an elderly Aunt. I now jointly own it with my two sons - Andrew and Michael. In 2000 we commenced building a cottage for our use and for guests and a self-catering cottage

John Currie purchased this cottage in 1864

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was amazing, it had everything we needed with lots of privacy and no neighbours and great views. This is very well maintained and spotlessly clean property with beautiful gardens. Very well presented and tastefully furnished with good quality appliances.

We have stayed in many cottages and B&Bs over the last 20 years and would rate this as one of the best without a doubt. Looking forward to coming back in the winter where we think it will be just as beautiful and warm and cosy with the wood heater burning.

Fantastic weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you could want for a weekend away (including Fox Footy!). The huge open plan living area downstairs is bright and comfortable with the fireplace a very welcome presence (the temperature dipped below freezing when we were there).

The property itself is miles from the nearest neighbours (who seem to be sheep) and there are acres of land for wandering. The house sits on top of a hill so the views in all directions are expansive. It's a bit of drive to town and the wineries, but the isolation also has its advantages!

The kitchen has everything you need to cook plus a coffee pod machine.

The master bedroom upstairs is also huge, with a king-size bed and a jacuzzi, which sadly we didn't get around to using.

We plan to return.
