Wellsprings Retreat Bed and Breakfast

Bedrooms 2
Property type hotel
Minimum Stay nights


About the property

Wellsprings Retreat is a traditional Bed and Breakfast with the accommodation within the hosts residence. The living and kitchen area are shared by the guests and the hosts, but when guests arrive, the hosts make themselves scarce so there is ample privacy. But if you are interested in knowing more about the area, or yoga for example, the hosts are very interesting to chat to and will do whatever they can to make your stay more memorable. Wellsprings Retreat is the perfect place for those wanting a homely atmosphere, as opposed to a hotel room.

Private cottage garden, spacious, light and modern home, walking distance to the local cafe, shops and train station. Rooms are large and offer lovely views of the garden. Separate bathroom with walk in shower and spa bath.

There is accommodation for a second couple, so please contact Wellsprings Retreat if you would like a quote on accommodating more than a couple.

Breakfast is two courses, starting with fruit, muesli and yoghurt, or banana porridge, and finishing with eggs and garden vegetables. The eggs come from the chooks on the property.

Wellsprings Retreat is home to a friendly cat, Gypsy, who does not enter the guests bedrooms but can be seen present around the living rooms, in case anyone is allergic to cats.

Your host is a qualified yoga teacher, having studied in India and Australia for over 8 years. There is a purpose built yoga studio on the premises so you may like to treat yourself to a private session suited to your time frame and physical ability. Your host can also offer private meditation classes. Individual one hour sessions for guests is $70.00

For the garden enthusiasts Wellsprings Retreat is perfectly located for exploring well known gardens. Just minutes away from Stephen Ryan's Dicksonia Rare Plant Nursery. A leisurely drive to Garden of St Earth, Lamely Nursery and Frogmore Gardens.

If you want to make the most of the Macedon Ranges Shire, Hepburn Shire and not be too far from Melbourne, then Wellsprings Retreat is the perfect getaway.


Five minute drive to Mt Macedon where you can visit wineries, open gardens and take great walks.

The Macedon Ranges is home to many lovely boutique towns, well worth a drive down the highway, stopping along the way.

Home to great wineries, gardens and galleries.

Only 50 minutes drive from Melbourne, so for interstate travellers, you can enjoy the peace of the country while taking a trip into Melbourne.

For concert goes, Hanging Rock is only a 15 minute drive from Wellsprings Retreat. Ten minutes to Woodend where a shuttle bus can take you to the concert venue.


A beautiful modern home surrounded by half a acre of manicured garden. There is a small pond to sit by and listen to the running water-fall, and fancy chooks to enjoy. A purpose built yoga studio exists within the house. Bright, clean and new.

A very special stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a delightful stay at this property. Kym is a divine host and her carefully prepared breakfasts made with local produce are memorable. Her home is immaculate and we enjoyed a real sense of calm staying here.

The reason for our visit was to attend a wedding on the Mount, but we would love to return to Wellsprings for another very soothing experience - such an easy escape from the city. The Macdeon village (with great coffee shop) is a five minute walk from the house.

The onsite yoga and meditation classes are also recommended. Thank you for a really lovely few days, Kym.

Peaceful Setting

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful garden setting and stylish home shared with delightful host; The most beautifully cooked breakfasts by Kym using her fresh seasonal produce. Close to Melbourne but far enough away to relax and breath in the fresh air.

Relax with warmth and comfort

  • 5 of 5

Kym and her husband provide a beautiful, cosy, quiet and stylish retreat where you can truly relax. They are such warm hosts you feel instantly comfortable and a cup of tea is never far away. Delightful elements like the log fire, homemade breakfast and resident cat make you feel at home yet with the fresh country air to rejuvenate. Would recommend this lovely spot.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Kym is an excellent host, very warm and welcoming, and the accommodation is spotlessly clean. The breakfasts prepared with many ingredients from the back garden was healthy and delicious. Comfortable and cosy - highly recommended!
