About the property

HOMESTEAD, THE MANSE build in 1862

sits on the foot of Melbourne Hill in Lancefield, the heart of Victoria.

Come and enjoy this home, beautifully restored for modern living in keeping with its original

features in all rooms.


Sleep in one of the 3 large tastefully styled queen size bedrooms, with the original fireplaces

and windows overlooking the beautiful gardens. All rooms have fixed wall heaters to keep

yourself warm.

Or stay the night in the gorgeous single bedroom, called Vintage Rose.

Or choose the 5th bedroom with ensuite and 2 single beds, looking out over the garden rockeries.

For a game, reading, TV, or a movie come together in the SITTING ROOM with the original large fireplace where one in the old days prepared their family meals.

And if you like home cooking, you will love the LARGE KITCHEN with all modern appliances

and a pantry for all your needs for a breakfast and more. Have your meal in the DINING ROOM

with wood fireplace. But nothing better than having your brekkie in the COSY SHELTERED

SPACIOUS COURTYARD, heated by a potbelly stove looking out over the gardens.

Then take a stroll through the 2 acres around The Manse and absorb the tranquillity of GARDENS,

ROCKERIES, PATHWAYS and then have a heart warming drink while relaxing on the

LARGE VERANDA watching the breathtaking sunsets. Before the day is finished give your body a treat with a soak in the SPA ROOM while overlooking the beautiful views before it is dark.

Book this grand home at the PERFECT LOCATION and absorb the ambience of times gone by.

SUITABLE for FAMILIES and FRIENDS, or bring your own group for a MEDITATION / YOGA

Fabulous escape

  • 5 of 5

Spent a very relaxing weekend with a group of friends. Fabulously equipped kitchen. Amazing bedrooms. Lots of space for both alone time and gathering together. Garden was great with expansive lawns, lots of garden beds and some beautiful old trees. Highly recommend.

Could not recommend more

  • 5 of 5

I could not recommend this place more and here is why:

- We arrived late on a cold night, the owner waited and greeted us with all the lights and heating turned on waiting for us. She had also prepared two fireplaces for us to use if we wished.

- Every bedroom had an extra blanket and every chair had a blanket on it if we needed.

- Our stay included a continental breakfast which included milk, juice, cereal, toast and eggs. They also had an excellent coffee maker which meant we didn't have to go out seeking for cafe the next morning but we're able to take our time.

- They have recently added a spa bath which wasn't advertised but was a fantastic surprise!

Although the house was oddly layed out and the taps for hot and cold were incorrectly labeled on the main bath, it did not hinder our thorough enjoyment of this property.

We will definitely re-book here in the future.

Very expansive property, clean and cosy. Modern facilities with generously stocked supplies. Can easily accommodate large groups. Look forward to an excuse to stay again. Adele was obliging.
