Comments from guests

"This house was absolutely incredible. From the minute we walked into the house we felt totally relaxed and calm. The silence of the region plus the comfort of all the decor was gorgeous. We spent most of our time either watching the gorgeous fireplace roaring with heat, or sitting out watching the world go by. Thank you so much for our time there - everyone agreed that we WILL be back again!!"

"We had a brilliant time down at Charleson Farm for our 10 year wedding anniversary. Our 3 kids loved the place and the room outside to run around, and also quite enjoyed chasing the roos and helping with the fire duties. While we felt completely isolated (which is what we wanted), there were plenty of great food and wine places within 15-20 minutes to satisfy all our needs. Currently working out when our next trip to Charleson will be. Thanks - it was just brilliant."

"Our weekend was fantastic, we can not say enough about the gorgeous house and for thinking of all the little things needed but often forgotten. We had an amazing time with all the tired and frazzled mothers leaving yesterday feeling revived and a little sore from the laughter and warm with memories that we will keep with us for a long time. It really was a special weekend."

"Charleson Farm was very nice ... the perfect place for families who want total seclusion. The kangaroos came right up to the house almost every day."

"WOW that was great holiday even though we were rained in, we still went walking in the rain and dried by the beautiful fireplace! We definitely plan to come and stay again - it is hard to find such a nice house that fits all my siblings in it!!"

"The house is fantastic for a group weekend away, with all quarters very well designed"

Perfect weekend retreat

  • 4 of 5

I booked the farm for 8 of us for the weekend to enjoy a relaxed lunch at the restaurant Brae, only a 20 minute drive away. It was a perfect location, easy to access and tucked away with gorgeous views. Woke up to hundreds of kangaroos just hanging out in the neighbouring fields! When we arrived late in the evening, we were welcomed with lights on and a cosy fire lit in the woodburner - perfect after the drive from Melbourne. The rooms accommodated us all brilliantly, with plenty of room for games, laughs and a hearty brekkie before we left. Overall a great foodie weekend!

A Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over a weekend and the place was absolutely wonderful. Everything was clean and neat. We appreciated the use of the rumpus room with the table tennis table and spent many hours around the fire place. The view is spectacular and has a very serene vibe that helps you relax. Highly recommend! Our only regret is that we couldn't stay for longer.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Such a nice, large and clean place. We arrived late at night and the fireplace was ready to light. All the facilities were there for us to cook. Waking up to that view and the kangaroos was magic. I will be back for sure.

A Great property but 1 bathroom is a problem

  • 3 of 5

We went with 2 other families for a long weekend. The house has a fully equipped kitchen and lots of games and puzzles to keep the kids amused. We all had fun playing in the grounds around the house. Only downfall with the house is 1 bathroom for 12 people is a struggle and would put us off staying there again. On holiday you dont want to have a bathroom roster!!!

Stayz you need to reflect your property description to show 1 bathroom!
