About Genevieve Milham
I spent many wonderful years of childhood in this beautiful region of the north east around Beechworth and returned ten years ago to enjoy the tree change. Prior to that I lived in the UK for 16 years and then Sydney (Bondi) before returning to this haven. I studied and practiced architecture. The property inspired me to create a beautiful European style garden reminiscent of those I have enjoyed over the 30 years of my travels. I renovated the buildings to offer guests accommodation and a tranquil retreat for guests seeking special time with friends and family.
Genevieve Milham purchased this House in 2008
Why Genevieve Milham chose Stanley
Beechworth and the region is rich in culture and sophistication. It is one of Australia's renowned wine and gourmet regions featuring great cycling and pristine nature. The unique buildings on this property are reminiscent of places in Provence and Italy and provided an opportunity to create a bridge between worlds.
What makes this House unique
Being at the base of the High Country we enjoy beauty in every season with a gentle temperate climate with plenty of rain. The garden is a picture in every season and the region offers a wealth of interest of culture, wineries and gourmet offerings. I was inspired to create the accommodation and the natural swimming pool to complement the garden and offer guests a unique holiday experience.

8 girls away for the weekend
Stunning grounds cosy warm and comfortable. Great beds. The Stanley pub served us a great meal Saturday night. Lovely stay.
Girls weekend away
We were a group of 7 ladies away for our annual girls weekend. Our main reason for choosing this property was the ability to have single beds in most of the rooms so we could each have our own bed. We were originally 9 ladies and this would also have been accommodated with what looked like really comfy roll out beds on the upstairs landing. All the beds and bedding were amazing. We had a great weekend. The Lodge was unique with the log walls and plenty of room for all of us. Sitting by the pool was just the right way to end the day although it was a bit too cold to swim and then chilling in the lounge with seats for everyone. Great facilities in the kitchen, including some breakfast supplies with tea and coffee and we also made use of the veggie patch to add to our salad and one of our ladies whipped up a zucchini soup for dinner! Not too far out of Beechworth and easy to find. We had a really nice weekend, thank you Genevieve and we would highly recommend if you are looking for group accommodation in the Beechworth area
We had such a lovely relaxing experience at Planetrees. Genevieve has a wonderful property with stunning gardens, and the lodge was a very inviting and comfortable. Wonderful stay! Thank you!
Picturesque and the perfect escape
We had the most wonderful stay at Plantrees Lodge. We were a group of 9 adults and the accomodation was perfect for us. Comfy beds, a kitchen fitted out with everything we needed, plenty of space to hang out together and also lots of quiet nooks to find a peaceful moment. The grounds, gardens and pool are absolutely breathtaking. We spent a morning in Beechworth, but hurried back to make the most of the afternoon in the sunshine. We spent the whole day wondering around and exploring the gardens and lounging by the pool and enjoying a delicious meal together in the garden. Genevieve and Zsa Zsa were the perfect hosts. It was so nice to talk to Genevieve and hear about the time and love she had put into making Planetrees the beautiful place it is today. We were sad and reluctant to leave and cannot wait to come back and spend another weekend in this beautiful Wonderland.
We had a lovely family stay 3 adults and 5 children. Great comfy beds, weather was hot but house was lovely and cool with a breeze each night. Gardens great for hours of exploration, cricket and meals and drinks outside. Lots of things to do near by picking berries, riding, walking, swimming and museums. Thanks Genevieve for a lovely stay.
We loved our stay. We were so comfortable in the house and loved the gardens. Hope to stay again one day.....
