Mount View Cottage - Luxury in picturesque setting

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Having undergone a full renovation, this gorgeous self-contained cottage is situated on a farm with as much privacy and seclusion as you desire just moments from the township of Ararat.

Beautifully appointed featuring:

*master bedroom with lead light window and luxurious king size bed

*second bedroom with queen bed

*fully tiled bathroom comprising all new fixtures including an oversize shower

*brand new kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and extensive cooking equipment so you can cook as little or as much as you desire!

*comfortable lounge with large TV & DVD

*split system heating and air-conditioner

*full laundry with washing machine and dryer

*second toilet.

Outside a wide verandah wraps around three sides of the house, allowing you to follow the sun throughout the day, concluding with an evening drink as you watch the sun go down.

There is plenty of space in the house paddock for the kids to kick the footy or ride their of which you can keep an eye on whilst relaxing on the deck. The only traffic they may have to contend with being the occasional sheep!

There is a large BBQ and a fire pit available for seasonal use.

Boasting idyllic views of Mount Langi Ghiran, Mt Cole and the Grampians as well as the twinkling lights of Ararat, 'Mount View' is situated close to the race course and is also an easy drive to several wineries, local galleries and museums.

'Aradale' and 'J Ward' (both offering daily tours), Gum San Chinese Heritage Centre, beautiful Alexandra Gardens, the indoor swimming pool and the outdoor 50m pool (recently refurbished) are all great destinations in close-by Ararat. Alternatively, the Grampians National Park and the township of Halls Gap with all they offer, are an easy drive away.

At 'Mount View' there is little to disturb the peace and quiet of this serene setting, but the proximity of the Ararat township means the convenience of the supermarkets and coffee shops are only a few minutes drive away.

A lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mount View Cottage for a lovely long weekend and absolutely loved it. The house was spotless and contained everything you need for a few days away from the hustle and bustle of city living. Ararat is close by for anything you need. Kate thought of everything to make this place perfect, it’s very charming! We also brought our two dogs with us and they loved roaming around the property and sunning themselves on the porch.

We would stay again and would recommend to friends.

Beautiful cottage in quiet location

  • 4 of 5

Very nicely renovated farmhouse near Ararat. Kate was a pleasure to deal with. Very quiet location in farmland, but a very short drive to Ararat and a comfortable trip to the Grampians. Plenty of heaters kept us warm. Comfortable bed and extremely well equipped kitchen.

An outdoor light for unpacking the car when arriving after dark would be nice.

Lovely cottage, very peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Loved staying at Mountain View Cottage, off the beaten track but close enough to the town of Ararat. We had a great relaxing but active holiday.

So lovely!

We had a wonderful stay at this beautifully secluded farmhouse. It was clean and well-appointed and communication with Kate was fabulous. Highly recommended for a super relaxing break from the rat race.

A delightful property

  • 5 of 5

Mount View is just gorgeous! So clean; fresh and well equipped with everything our family of four needed during our week-long visit to the region. It was only a few minutes from town but was so peaceful and quiet ... and very beautiful! Not knowing the area, we wondered if we would find ourselves too far from the Grampians but it was an ideal base for exploring this very beautifum part of Australia. We thoroughly recommend Mount View and will return if ever in the area again.

This is such a beautiful place to stay, relax and unwind and let life's stresses melt away. The house is gorgeous, the views breathtaking and the area so peaceful and quiet. You forget you are minutes away from Ararat's town centre. Once there, did not leave until it was time to go. Would love to return. Thank you Kate!
