About the property

Experience a spacious American Barn style residence nestled on over 50 acres, with 20 cleared acres, 30 forested and two large dams stocked with fish and yabbies. There are four bedrooms downstairs with three queen size, one double and a single bed while upstairs on the mezzanine level there are another two bedrooms with four bunks and three single beds. Enjoy the open plan living area with large well appointed kitchen, built in bar, pool table, dart board, 55' flat screen television, sound bar and blueray player. Read a book on the high quality leather lounges while sitting by the combustion wood fire on those cold winter afternoons/nights or use the split system airconditioning and fans to keep you and the family cool in the summer. There is a wide veranda on two sides of the property that contains BBQs, an outdoor sink, and flat screen television. The property is positioned high up on the ridge to take in the magnificent views of the ranges offered from the living area and verandas while relaxing with family and friends in front of the fire pit when the nights get cold. Enjoy magnificent sunsets/sunrises, bushwalking and horse riding on the property or motorbike riding within the nearby Eildon National Park. The property has no direct neighbors and is only 20 minutes to Alexandra, 15 minutes to Lake Eildon and 5 minutes walk to the Eildon National Park while also being 2 hours from Melbourne.

Please note while there are pillows, doonas and mattress toppers at the property, guests will need to bring their own pillow cases, sheets and towels. We also don't accept bookings for bachelor parties or bachelor weekends....

Paradise in the hills

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to sit back and relax with family or friends. All the amenities without having to camp in the hills. Craig made us feel very welcome and I would highly recommend Brackenridge to anyone wanting to escape the rat race. Thank you Craig for opening up your home to us :)

Awesome group getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed home in a great location! Perfect for our 6 couples and kids. Brilliant views and the only thing that would make it even better would be if the hot tub was in working order. Definitely will be back soon, thank you Craig

A lovely weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

This property is located in such beautiful surrounds that it's almost impossible not to enjoy your time. We stayed for a weekend with friends and it was hard to find something to complain about. Fire pits, a few fridges for drinks, a bar, dartboard and a pool table for activities and enough bedrooms to sleep 16. The views through the valley nearby are gorgeous and if you are lucky enough to have clear skies in the morning, you'll probably never want to leave.

There are only two minor inconveniences with the property: the first being that not all of the beds are in proper bedrooms; there are a few single beds upstairs that are in the main space. The other is the location - Grant provided accurate instructions but it wasn't super clear that using our phone's default navigation apps would lead us astray (ie: through some nearby private property). Other than that we had a memorable stay and would definitely visit again.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 families at Brackenridge and it was brilliant. House was very clean and functional, lots of wood for the fires, directions spot on, pool table loved by all.

Only issue was the lock on the laundry/2nd bathroom didn't lock, so there was an awkward walk in! But overall the property was amazing and we had a wonderful stay!
