About the property

Country House Retreat is a unique rural homestead, nestled on 50 acres of countryside just minutes from Lakes Entrance and Metung, but a world away from the holiday crowds.

You will be swept away by the experience this secluded country home offers –set up for couples, families and friends to enjoy country living with coastal beaches, tourist villages and the magnificent Gippsland Lakes in close proximity.

The contemporary home features a large entertainment deck with pizza oven, BBQ and outdoor dining, overlooking a peaceful dam and rolling pastures. An outdoor heated spa provides year round relaxation and fun for young and old. The house has ramp access for wheelchairs, plus handrails in the ensuite bathroom.

Consisting of four bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, this home will comfortably accommodate 10 people. The main bedroom features a king coil queen bed, with a sublime ensuite offering views of the native bushland behind the property, plus a walk in robe. Two bedrooms feature trilogy bunks (double bed with single up top), with the fourth bedroom offering a king coil king size bed or the option of two single beds.

The kitchen is stocked to feel like a home away from home. Slow cook, blend, stir fry or sizzle your way to a fabulous meal with cooktop, oven and microwave. Plenty of plastic ware for the little people in your lives and dining outdoors, plus salt and pepper, cooking spray, foil, cling wrap are supplied for your convenience. If you’re not on duty keep the chef company in the open plan kitchen/dining area as you admire views of the country side from each window. Coffee pod machine and arrival tea/coffee amenities are also provided to get you off to a good start.

In the cooler months enjoy a cosy log fire (with all wood provided), or just switch on the split system for instant warmth and comfort. Stretch out on the plush leather sofa for some screen time in front of the 55 inch HD TV, or plug your favourite tunes into the portable speaker and dance like no-one’s watching (did we mention the privacy and seclusion?).

Deluxe hotel quality linen and towels are provided for each guest. For stays exceeding 7 nights’ fresh linen and towels are provided on a complimentary basis. Laundry features LG washing machine plus all the things you’ll need to keep your house in order after a day at the beach.

Traveling With Pets

Pets that are clean and flea free are most welcome but must be past the chewing phase. Pets are permitted to enter the house and stay on non-carpeted areas. Pets are not permitted into the carpeted bedrooms for hygiene reasons.

One large or two smaller dogs are permitted per stay. If your furry friend prefers the great outdoors there is a chain dog run adjacent to the homestead for your pet to stretch their legs. The house yard is also securely fenced for children and pets to roam freely and safely around the lawn area.

Naturally, we expect you to pick up after your pet, and provide scooper and bags for this purpose. Please be aware that any additional cleaning required from pets or damage caused to furniture or fittings will incur additional charges on your credit card.

Experience the Best of East Gippsland

If you need some ideas to experience the best of what our region has to offer, you'll find brochures, maps and visitor information on arrival to plan the perfect itinerary.

Country House Retreat is situated next to our farm so we'll also be on hand to welcome you when you arrive, and if there's anything you need to make your stay more enjoyable.

Here it's only 4 minutes drive to the Gippsland Lakes, and if you're bringing a boat we can provide private jetty access to berth your boat on.

If you'd prefer to be lakeside, check out the listing for our sister property, Jetty Road Retreat.

We would loved to have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

Superb house, well stocked, clean and everything you could wish for on a country stay. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to use the pizza oven, great excuse to come back again. Thank you Kim and Stephen for sharing your peaceful and tranquil retreat, the family and the dog really enjoyed our stay.

Great sized, well equipped and very comfortable house. Extremely peaceful location and only a short drive to Lakes or Metung for supplies. Very relaxing time, hope to be back. The farm fresh eggs on arrival was a very nice touch. Highly recommend staying here.

This property is superbly presented with new luxurious fit out, set away from the road we enjoyed a great meal from the wood fired pizza oven with a salad from a basket of fresh produce provided and a relaxing spa. Highly recommended.
