*FINALIST in 2015 Stayz Holiday Rental Awards - one of 6 in Victoria in Family and Indulgence categories.

The Bales resides on two beautiful treed acres, framed by open farmland, an avenue of mature pines and a wonderful dam. The architect-designed home, partly constructed of rendered straw bales and recycled timbers and sandstone, is ideal for two families or a group of 8 friends. The property's unique atmosphere suits ceremonial occasions, where bridal parties or the groom's family can be accommodated on the weekend of your wedding in town or nearby in the region.

Three bedrooms comprise a huge master suite with king bed and ensuite, queen bedroom, and double bunk room. A second bathroom includes a bath with shower. Two living areas with soaring windows, each with TVs and fires, allow plenty of space to spread out. Indoor entertainment includes a PlayStation 3 and music iDevice dock. A pool table with cues and balls provides entertainment in the second living area. The open plan kitchen features a large fridge, breakfast bar, double oven, coffee machine (and Nespresso capsules), slow cooker and all the usual appliances and more. Teas, coffee, sugar and basic cooking ingredients are provided for your convenience.

The grounded feeling of luxury and comfort of the architecture is complimented by attention to the little things: coffee machine, built fires ready to light on arrival, the softest blankets on every bed, quality towels and linen for your comfort, and a well-equipped kitchen.

A substantial north-east deck facing the dam and garden is perfect for your morning tea in the sun while you watch the children explore the cubby, playground and the trampoline under the trees. Enjoy a meal outdoors or a sundowner, when you might spot the family of grey wallabies that graze in the gathering dusk. A gas barbecue on the deck will feed the hordes.

Stroll 5 minutes to reach the tranquility of the Wombat Forest with its many walking and bicycle trails. 10 minutes meander in the other direction is the historical town of Trentham, with its many attractions:

Eateries including The Cosmopolitan Hotel, Annie Smithers' du Fermier, Red Beard Bakery, Coliban for sophisticated locally produced pantry items;

Coffee shops and eateries such as the Trentham Collective and Chaplins;

Galleries where you can pick up a hand-crafted souvenir;

Homewares, bookshops and giftware;

Unique vintage clothing;

Nurseries and

Eccentric novelty shops such as Two Fat Wombats.

Browse markets which are held every weekend in the area. Perhaps schedule your weekend to coincide with the Farmers' Market on the 3rd Saturday of each month. The town square is only a 10 minute walk. Use the basket provided! Cook up a fresh feast with local produce and enjoy al fresco lunch or cosy up in front of the fire for a leisurely evening.

Explore the spa country via Daylesford which is a 15 minute drive away past the Trentham Falls. Equally nearby is cosmopolitan Kyneton and Woodend. Hanging Rock and Mt Macedon are less than half an hour away too.

Every season offers a different experience of the Cool Country: daffodils and ducklings in spring, unbelievably green grass and balmy evenings in summer; autumn foliage to inspire walks during crisp afternoons, possible snow dustings and chilly rainy days in winter to encourage a lazy weekend with just a book, a red and a roaring open fire. If you can stay a week or more, please enquire about special rates.

Whether you wish to sit back on the couch and watch the birds beyond the 5 metre windows, or explore the Cool Country from a luxurious base, The Bales won't disappoint you. Follow 'The Bales Trentham' on Facebook for local news and developments.
