Experience sustainable living in this magnificent "off grid" home, lovingly handcrafted by the owners from timber and stone.
Perfectly positioned between Lakes Entrance and Metung, The Folly is just minutes from the Gippsland Lakes, offering a private and peaceful rural setting to completely relax.
Set on 3 acres of rolling pastures, the home offers master bedroom plus upstairs loft, ideal for a couple or family seeking a nature based escape with wide open spaces to ride, roam and explore.

The space
The Folly provides an escape from the pressures of modern day life, where social distancing and the opportunity to relax and recharge is all part of the experience.

The property sits alone on 3 acres surrounded by amazing rural vistas and rolling hills, as far as the eye can see. All you need to do is bring your supplies and high spirits, and arrive to be swept away by this beautiful country setting.

If you feel the need to leave, a gentle walk to the lake, or a spot of fishing, it's likely that you may not encounter another soul. If you feel more energetic, bring your mountain bike as we have a world class mountain bike park in the forest and it's only a short 4 km ride from The Folly.

We are sure you have read the blurb, The Folly offers a truly off-grid experience, our power comes from the sun, our water only comes from the rain that we collect in our own tanks, and the air is as fresh as it gets. Perfect for a healthy time away - even for our locals!

Our cleanliness is of the very highest standard as our previous guests have attested, and The Folly is ready for your arrival. We look forward to welcoming you soon to our beautiful and secluded piece of paradise. Stephen and Cindy Edwards, (owners and creators of The Folly).

The timber, stone and granite finishes create a warmth that beckons you inside, to a space that is visually inspiring, beautiful, and all yours to enjoy.

Stairs lead you up to the loft bedroom (a kids paradise!) with 4 single beds and plenty of floor space.

The master bedroom features a comfortable queen size bed and plenty of cupboard space if you're enjoying a longer stay.

The kitchen is equipped with a gas stove top, wood fired combustion oven, dishwasher, and Nespresso coffee machine. In the cooler months, arrive to enjoy instant warmth from the gas log heater.

In the warmer months, enjoy a BBQ on the outdoor patio as you gaze over rolling hills in this idyllic peaceful setting.

Bookings of 3 or more nights receive a complimentary bottle of local wine on arrival.

Guest access
As a guest of The Folly you have exclusive access to the entire property, adjacent double garage and three acres of manicured pastures.

There is a small secured pet enclosure adjacent to the property (approximately 3 x 4 metres), which is suitable for small dogs only. Pets that are clean and flea free are welcome indoors (excluding bedroom areas).

Other things to note
The Folly is owned by Stephen and Cindy. It has been designed and built by us - every stone and timber you see has been placed by us. Our focus on building The Folly was to have a low impact on the environment. Being "off-grid" means the property relies on the sun for power, and rain for water. The oven is wood-fired, with wood provided.

Whilst this provides a unique experience for visitors, guests should consider if the property will meet their requirements. Please note there is no microwave or air-conditioning at this property.

Our guest information folder provides useful tips for guests to ensure they have a comfortable stay and get the best out of this unique home, and the chance it provides to live "off grid" during your stay.

As stated above, pets are welcome at The Folly. Please just be aware that as it's a rural property, the fencing surrounding the house boundary is farm fencing, and as such, is not secure for pets.

Hello I'm Kim! I live in the beautiful Gippsland Lakes region of Victoria (Aus), on the lovely old beef farm my husband grew up on as a child. We're raising our own 3 young-ish children now, and spend weekends enjoying adventures in our own backyard. From mountain biking, camping, caving and skiing (in winter!), plus pretty much anything you can enjoy on or in the water! I manage 3 distinct and unique properties just minutes from our home. Each one offers an amazing and unforgettable visitor experience. We can't wait to welcome you to our newest property, The Folly.
