A light-filled, spacious, handmade cottage overlooking 100s of acres of pastureland in the Yarra Valley hills. Only 1 hour from the CBD, but a million miles from the hectic daily grind. 15 mins to the famous Yarra Valley wineries. Cool and breezy in summer due to it’s stone and mudbrick construction. And the log fire ensures it’s cozy and warm all winter long. Plenty of vintage glassware to enjoy drinks by the fire. Queen-sized bed with fresh, white 1000 thread count linen. Kids stay free!
Deceptively large, this handcrafted space features high ceilings, a sparkling white floor, a wood burning fireplace with a very large, down-filled couch. It also features a seperate vintage bathroom (with a shower over the bath), spacious kitchen with fridge, gas cooktop and oven, filtered water, pots and pans, crockery, cutlery, teapot, coffee plunger, toaster, kettle, and a variety of glassware including some vintage crystal pieces. There is also a vintage/upcycled dining table for 4 and 2 single beds presented as daybeds but featuring inner spring mattresses. Please note: there is no seperate bedroom...this is a very large, studio house...perfect for couples or a small family. There is plenty of clean bedding, doonas and blankets available for long winter nights by the fire. There is very good mobile reception.
PLEASE NOTE: We don't charge for kids (18 and under) so if you're a family with 2 adults then the basic nightly rate is all you need to pay. Only include the number of adults in the booking request.
The house has a key safe located on the front porch. Once you've booked, we will provide the code to the key safe.
The Stone House has it's own backyard and plenty of private space to enjoy the views.

OUR RATES: Please note that we only charge for adults so if you're a family of 4 for example, then you just need to pay the basic nightly rate ... kids stay free.
LINEN: To try and keep cleaning costs down we only supply linen for the Queen bed (plus towels for 2 etc). If you plan to use more than the Queen bed and it's inconvenient for you to bring your own, we can supply all linen for a small extra charge (from $30 per stay depending on the number in your party/number of beds used).
NEED MORE ROOM?: We also have an another house on the property which can be booked through a seperate listing. The 'White House on the Hill' has it's own backyard, seperate driveway and parking. There is a fence/screening separating the 2 houses to ensure privacy. They are not located close together ensuring peace and quiet for all guests. If you have a large group, contact us for a price for the entire property.
FOOD/SHOPPING: Make sure that you bring your food with you if you want to make the most of retreating from the world! There is no large supermarket on the mountain, only a smallish IGA. Or if you don't feel like cooking, the Yarra Valley - with it's large number of wineries and restaurants - is only a 15-20 min drive away. We also have an amazing local chef on the mountain who can fully/partly cater your weekend (including hampers/picnics). Her food is all organic, super fresh and tasty, and she's a whiz with different dietary requirements e.g. vegetarian, vegan, gluten free etc. She also does takeaway curries every Friday night - pick-up is just a short drive from the Stone House. And the Kinglake Pub is just 2 minutes drive away.
- Please remove your shoes before entering the house (bring slippers or indoor, soft-soled footwear due to the white floors).
We live beachside in the Byron Bay area, Australia. We love travelling and showing our girls what an amazing world we live in. We love nature, good food and try to walk lightly on the planet. As we are also airbnb hosts (of our special holiday home in the wine region of Victoria, Australia) we understand how important it is to treat a space with the utmost care and respect!
