About the property

Quiet and Rustic Weekender in Historic Walhalla. NOW with New 2x Large Water Tanks and two bedroom repainted. Ideal for 2 families, PET FRIENDLY. Has three Queen Beds, plus one single bed, plus a sofa that folds out for an additional Queen Bed. Quiet but central location within historic Walhalla, alongside Stringers Creek. Large outside area around historic Bread Oven. Plenty of room for ball games, parking, tents etc.. Basic kitchen, toilet and shower. Kitchen now includes a BRAND NEW 5 burner and fan forced oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, NEW dishwasher and two sinks. Internal heating, via Coonara Wood Heater plus two electric heaters. Keeps very cool, during hot days due to original thatched roofing then covered by colorbond metal roof. 240V Main Power, Heated Towel rail, USB Charge Points. BRING YOUR OWN LINEN/DOONA COVERS/SLEEPING BAGs. Pillows and Donnas are provided. No Internet or TV coverage and very limited mobile phone coverage. LCD TV with a large selection of DVDs in one of the bed rooms.

New Hot Water Service, Large pergola out the back with firepit/BBQ and three tables and chairs.

Please Note: We are offering rustic accommodation. We do not live in Walhalla and we get there to check about every 2nd - 3rd visit. So depending upon the previous guest, you may not find the house as clean as you and we would like. Doing it this way, allows us to keep the price low. Thank you for your understanding.

We now have 18,000 liters of water storage, instead of the previous 2,500 liters, so we will no longer have water supply issues. There is also a new HIGH capacity pump on a dedicated electrical circuit for extra reliability.

We loved our 3 night get away at the Old Bakery Walhalla, On arriving we got to met friendly owners Andrew & Sharkra, they gave us a quick run down on things and also gave us some yummy Tandoori Chicken, In our group we had 8 adults and 3 children you couldn't get a better price in such a beautiful location! We had a comfortable stay and would definitely be back, We enjoyed great meals at the pub lots of beautiful walks, train rides, and trip to Mt Baw Baw. Aside from your linen,food,some wood, the Bakery has everything you may need, thank you for having us!

Run down & cold

  • 2 of 5

The building is badly in need of repair & renovation. It was very cold despite the heater. The beds weren't actually in bedrooms, simply placed in the living room and dining room. So no privacy when staying with a group

Owner's Response: Damien, we are offering a rustic weekender, and you are in the lower Australian Alps, so it is cold. There are three Queen beds, two have bedrooms and one is the Long Room, where the heater is.

Never fails to disappoint....

  • 5 of 5

Wow.....maybe 10 years I've been coming up here now. Owners just keep making this place better and better. It was freezing in July...but warm and cosy inside. Not cold at all inside. Plenty of wood and newspapers to build a cosy fire. We went for walks and just generally drank wine and ate cheese and enjoyed no phones. Mornings were crisp with grass and puddles frozen but once that sun beamed we were in shorts and t shirt! Pub meal fabulous. Met the locals. As I've said a million times.....the Old Bakery is very special to me. My favourite place in the world. Thank you Sharka and Andrew.

Great for families

  • 4 of 5

Good location with a few luxuries like coffee pod machine and dishwasher. A bit less furniture would give more space. I would have liked a compendium with some instructions on how to operate things and for new comers to Walhalla some town information. I look forward to coming back soon l hope.

Great weekend!

  • 4 of 5

The accommodation is definitely rustic but the house is over 100 years old so it's history and the town certainly make up for it! Having said that though the house had everything with all the modern conveniences, the beds are super comfortable and it was warm with the fire going even though it was quite a cold weekend! The covered outdoor area and fire pit were also an excellent addition! But one of our favourite things was the bird life in the mornings with a family of 5 kookaburras which we could hand feed as well as around 10 different species settling just outside the back door! We had a fantastic weekend!
