The Seasons

Spring heralds all that is reborn with the awakening of the garden, warmth on the skin, and the overflowing pond summoning the renewal of life.

Summer hypnotises us with the long warm evenings, enjoying al fresco dining on the generous terraces after busy days enjoying all that is about the Macedon Ranges.

Autumn is magical with warm days and cool evenings, stunning us with the magnificent colour of oaks, maples, robinias and elms coupled with the burnt orange and burgundy colourings of perennials as they say their last goodbyes.

Winter invites us to start a roaring fire, light the candles, and to gather friends around the table to enjoy the very best of people and special places.

Comfort and luxury combined. Everything you could need under one roof. Tranquil and idyllic setting but close to Woodend and surrounds. We will be back, wished we could have stayed longer.
