Overview

About the property

Cheeky Fox Retreat offers a relaxing getaway for groups of up to 10 people. Situated on 50 private acres with spectacular views over the Kinglake Ranges, the property is perfect for a relaxing weekend away, a business meeting, planning session, or as a space for artists to work including craft groups and musicians. Follow us on Instagram @cheekyfoxretreat

Surrounding areas of Kinglake provide guests the opportunity to explore the majestic Kinglake National Park and include a variety of walks to park highlights such as Masons Falls and Wombelano Falls. Local tourist destinations are also within easy reach, including the historic Kinglake Pub.

Guest Access

Guests have exclusive access to the house and immediate grounds, including swimming pool and gardens and you are welcome to explore the wider property and walking tracks through the bush. Note that as a working hobby farm the owners reside in a separate dwelling on the property and may be present tending to the animals during your stay.

Within the house there's a large living space, boardroom/dining room, award winning kitchen, library, private cinema and music studio (musicians are required to supply their own equipment).

Interaction with Guests

Your hosts will be available to work with you and make sure your stay is perfect in every way. We aim to greet all our guests to show you around the house and facilities before we leave you to enjoy the retreat.

We like to get to know our guests prior to arrival so that we can provide as much of a tailored experience as possible. Please tell us a bit about your group and plans for your stay when making your booking or enquiry so that we can offer you the best advice for your stay.

For those guests planning to visit the Yarra Valley wineries, we offer private wine tours directly from the property and can either design a tour for you or take you wherever you'd like to go if you. Ask about our ‘Cheeky Wine Tours’ when enquiring for more information.

We can also provide conference & event co-ordination, in-house catering, team building/entertainment and transport options for an additional fee so please let us know your requirements when booking.

House rules

Whilst we're secluded and we encourage you to enjoy your time on the property, we still have neighbours to consider so no excessive loud music in the outside areas of the house/property after 11pm.

Your booking is for the maximum number of guests that we have agreed, no visiting guests are allowed unless by prior arrangement.

However, please just be upfront with us about your plans so that we can work with you to accommodate - we're pretty easy going!

No smoking inside the house please, an outside ashtray is provided. Also, sorry but we can't accept pets due to other animals on the property - dogs tend to love chasing sheep!

Other things to note

The Cheeky Fox Retreat is home to some local farm animals including 30 sheep and three horses. We also have nightly visits from wombats and the occasional Cheeky Fox. With the animals on the property please remember to close all gates after you use them.

Kinglake is known for its mountain winters so don't forget to pack your gumboots, uggboots and warm clothing from April to October. Note the swimming pool is not available over the winter period (it's solar heated so we can't get it to a comfortable temperature at that time year but we find red wine by the fire a pretty good alternative!).

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Cheeky Fox Retreat for a small family weekend away to celebrate my Dad's 70th birthday. The property is gorgeous and the house is beautifully presented and very cosy (despite being quite large!). We prepared a birthday dinner in the huge kitchen which was so well appointed, it had all of the equipment we could possibly need. Linda also helped plan our mini winery/sightseeing tour with some great ideas. I can't recommend this property highly enough for a group/family getaway!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I will have everlasting memories of our weekend at Cheeky Fox Retreat for my 40 th Birthday. Communication with Hosts Linda and Jason was outstanding and they went out of their way to accommodate all of our needs. The Accomodation is spacious, yet cosy, immaculately clean and each room is beautifully presented. The movie room was a huge hit with the kids! The outside area is a wonderful sanctuary of peace and quiet and when sitting by the pool looking out at the rolling green hills you feel as though you are in paradise. I cannot recommendation Cheeky Fox Retreat enough. Thank you so much for having us. Tanya and Alex

Fabulous Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend with friends and kids at Cheeky Fox Retreat. The house was well stocked, clean as a whistle and very homely. The log fire was a real treat as was the cinema, pool, sheep and the kids being able to run around the house 20 times! The amazing bollygum playground is not far away which the kids loved too. I highly recommend for a great family weekend!

Brilliant home and view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cheeky Fox for an executive team retreat and it was wonderful. Lots of room, brilliant views, great set up for serious work discussions and relaxed chats by the fire. We’ve been there twice now and will be back. Thanks Linda for being a great host!
