About the property

Warm and earthy redgum and stone log cabin nestled in the mountains on a 70 acre farm. Meander up the kilometre long driveway to a wow factor view when you arrive.

The off grid solar property encompasses the river flats of the King Parrot Creek to the summit of the highest mountain in the district. Walk to the summit, relax on the verandah or sit by the fire.

The house has a warm ambience with extensive use of natural materials.

The house comfortably accommodates seven or eight people, two queen sized comfortable bedrooms each with utterly restful atmosphere, and another generous bedroom comprising three single bunks and a spare mattress for the kids or the larger gathering.

There is Wi-Fi unrestricted throughout the house, verandah and balcony.

• Combustion fire in living area (wood provided)

• Baby grand piano overlooking the property

• 3 Bedrooms in all plus retreat upstairs with a lounge and desk, opening onto sundeck

HDMI cable and screen casting available to the large screen TV. Stereo with CD, vinyl record, bluetooth, AM/FM radio and auxiliary input.

Being off grid, on solar power and rainwater we do ask guests to be mindful of their power and water consumption.

The general store is 5 km away, local hotel 3km away.

Strictly no outdoor fires.

Strictly smoke free home.

Pets by negotiation.

Strictly no hunting on the property.

Being a farm there are a number of unfenced dams on the property.

Additionally, as it is a working farm, you will sometimes see people and equipment at work on the property.

Flowerdale is home to the beautiful King Parrot Creek which has a 10km bike track along its banks, or you might like a swim in the cascading rock pools...

If you drive towards Strath Creek you can't go past the iconic Flowerdale Estate, a fabulous place for a special meal or high tea on Sundays. In nearby Yea, the choice of cafes, restaurants and pubs is vast for such a small town. Live music often graces the venues.

The Goulburn River High Country Rail Trail is a short ride or drive away. Cyclists will love the area for all it offers. In addition there is a ten kilometre bike path through our valley alongside the King Parrot Creek. With a stop for coffee at the local store or cold beer at the local Flowerdale hotel on the way back.

The tall trees (some 80m) in Toolangi are only a short drive away, visit Toolangi Forest Discovery Centre and Café, well worth a day exploring this magnificent area. Fly fishing enthusiasts frequently do well in the King Parrot Creek.

Hang gliders and para-gliders can frequently be seen at the top of our property. We have association with Melbourne Paragliding.

Miniature steam train rides are at nearby Kerrisdale.

Located only about 1 hour 20 minutes from Melbourne, approximately 1 hour 10 minutes from the Tullamarine International airport or 45 min from Lilydale. The drive here is scenic and enjoyable through beautiful forests and countryside whichever direction you come from.

The Hidden Gem in Flowerdale

  • 5 of 5

WOW what a terrific cabin. My wife and I were both blown away when we first opened the door and entered this wonderful cabin. We were a little worried when we booked the property (being off grid and solar and rainwater reliant) but we had a fantastic 2 nights. Although the weather was not the best the amenities and cosiness of the cabin soon created a relaxing atmosphere. We had to use the gas alternative for hot water but it was very easy to change systems. Everything worked very well and the kitchen had all the implements one could require. The surrounds were ideal, beautiful views and lots of wildlife. The Flowerdale Hotel was a good place for lunch on Wednesday and the locals made us very welcome. We are keen to return with the grandchildren and know they will just love the animals (and the fairy lights). A big thank you Vikki for all your assistance and also Trent for providing the accommodation and we look forward to returning soon. Best wishes
