About Linda & Jason
We are a friendly and respectful couple who are fond of all the good things in life - food, wine, music, films, socialising and travel. We initially bought this property as a country escape and for six years divided our time between here and a unit in the city. However, the pull of the country got us in the end and we are now proud to call Kinglake home.
Linda & Jason purchased this House in 2010
Why Linda & Jason chose Kinglake Central
With family in the area, we were frequent visitors to Kinglake and its proximity to Melbourne made it the ideal location for a country 'weekender'. We fell in love with this property straight away with its large, well laid out house, swimming pool, rural aspect, and incredible views. It was certainly more than we needed but we knew it had the potential to help us realise our dream of living and running a business in the country. So, we took the plunge and now consider ourselves incredibly lucky to be living that dream!
What makes this House unique
The house has such a warm, welcoming feel that everyone who visits instantly feels right at home. With several living spaces and six large bedrooms, it is perfect for large groups to spread out while still feeling like a cosy, country farm house. We were particularly attracted to the swimming pool, with its stunning views and the movie room with its authentic cinema feel! A sun-drenched veranda wraps around the entire house offering views of the ranges to the east and garden views to the west. The house grounds are surrounded by paddocks housing some 30 sheep and there is also about 12 acres of bush on the property, with over 2 kilometres of tracks to explore.

Beautiful house. Well equipped with everything we needed. Had an enjoyable morning with hosts Jason Linda and Fitz.
Thanks so much Jewel - it was a pleasure having you here!
A beautiful property with a super helpful owner
We had an amazing time at Cheeky Fox and Linda the owner was incredibly helpful. I was hosting a number of friends for a weekend away and Linda helped me make it a magic and memorable experience, with booked activities including a chef dinner in the house, yoga and a wine/cheese tour. The house itself is also blissful. Honestly the photos don't fully do it justice. The view past the pool and over the rolling hills is delightful. The house is well appointed and very comfortable. Overall it's one of the best house stays I've had. Thanks Linda, we'll have to come back.
Amazing!! Has everything you could think of!
It doesn’t get much better than this! Perfect house, equipped with everything you could think of! The view is even better in real life and the pool is just stunning! Such a great place for large groups! So much space! The hosts are so lovely and approachable for any of your needs. We had the most fantastic time ever. It doesn’t get much better than this!
Fantastic house and location
Our weekend of 5 couples was great. Plenty of room, huge dining area, great verandah with magnificent views. Cinema room was a bonus enjoyed by all.
Linda and Jason were great hosts.
Lovely and friendly owner. Beautiful natural view from the accommodation definitely going back again
Excellent place to stay!
Cheeky fox retreat isn’t too far from Yarra Glen. Our family had wonderful time stay there over weekend. Linda and Jason provided such friendly and warm welcome on first day when we arrived the house. Meanwhile, took us with little kids around the area next early morning, we all enjoy the walk and spent quality of time at Kinglake. Relaxing and refreshing!! Definitely will go back again
Thanks so much Cindy - it was our absolute pleasure and we'd love to welcome you back again to Cheeky Fox Retreat!
An amazing country retreat with stunning views
We had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Cheeky Fox for our annual girls weekend away. Every single one of us were blown away by this perfect country retreat and Linda and Jason have ensured you want for nothing. From the beautiful bedrooms that comfortably fit our larger group of ladies, the large fully equipped country kitchen and dining areas, the cinema room and the views that stretch for miles it was the perfect getaway.
Linda and Jason were such wonderful hosts even taking us for a walk along the walking trails and went above and beyond when one of the girls lost her phone during the walk going back to find it for her.
You have the luxury of being in a place that feels so far away from the hustle of the city life when it is just a short trip from Melbourne. It’s location is perfectly situated close to the Yarra Valley and all it has to offer. It’s an absolute gem and we can’t wait to come back again next year.
Thanks for staying with us again Karen and friends! We look forward to seeing you again next year.
