This house has a recently tuned piano for music lovers. Being in a private & secluded location it is possible to practice without disturbing anybody. There is an outdoor bush shower heated by the sun in a very private spot with a view out over the creek. A lovely place for a tepid shower at the end of a very hot day.

Picturesque country retreat

  • 5 of 5

Moore House is a cosy cottage in very picturesque surrounds. Once the fire was going (plenty of chopped wood and kindling at the ready), the place stays nice and toasty warm. The beds were comfortable and linen clean. The kitchen had a good array of pots, utensils and crockery to create yummy winter meals. Only 15 minutes into Mansfield it is a great country retreat. Margaret was very responsive to any queries by phone or email.

  • 5 of 5

Our first proper holiday together. Such a lovely tranquil place for a family of people who were stressed out completely with day to day life and illnesses. Sitting outside with rolling hills as far as the eye can see and listening to cows and birds chirping, watching to sun come up and down again and just breathing deeply. Lovely hammock to lay under sun dappled trees. Would definitely stay again. Such a lovely lady who adds those personal little touches :) thank you once again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kath, for your very kind words. I try to make Moore House a personalized home away from home with all the amenities I enjoy when I go away. I am so glad you found and used the hammock! It is a fine thing to read in dappled shade swinging gently in the breeze! Kind Regards, Margaret Moore

Amazing artists retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at Moore house! The deck was perfect for morning yoga, the mezzanine was great for sitting and practicing guitar, and the woodfire was perfect to curl up beside and read a book! Perfect retreat!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed Moore House, Rachel. As a musician myself this is what I set it up for because there are not many properties where there is a piano in a private place conducive to relaxing and creativity.
