This 50-acre bushland property is part of our larger working Green Hills Farm. Given the time of the year, you may see our cattle, wallabies, deer, wombats and a stunning array of local bird life.

The house is located on a ridge top in the Yarragon Hills. Its magic lays in the ability for the views to change constantly. In the morning you may feel as though you sit above the clouds as low-lying mist covers the township of Yarragon. In the afternoon on a clear day you can see all the way to the snow-covered peaks of Mt Baw Baw. When the weather rolls in, you can have your own private show from Mother Nature.

Purchased in 2017, we have spent a year renovating this space to a place we would be happy to call home. It has two new bathrooms, a new kitchen, new flooring, air-conditioning, heating and all new beds and bedding.

Breakfast:
We provide generous breakfast provisions for your first night of stay. These include local made Butterfly Factory milk, local bread, homemade jam and honey from our farm hives. Sometimes even veggies or herbs from our veggie patch if they are available. General provisions such as tea and coffee are also included.

Other provisions provided:
— Linen & towels
— Firewood
— Plunger coffee, black and herbal tea bags
— Hot chocolate and marshmallows
— Basic pantry (olive oil, sugar, salt and pepper, foil, baking paper and glad wrap)
— Fully equipped kitchen including, cast iron dutch oven, cake pans, mixing bowls and ample glass and dinnerware. We encourage you to bake up a storm.
— Picnic basket and rug
— Board games and playing cards
— Outdoor dinning table, chairs, umbrella and gas Webber BBQ

Guest access
The whole house will be open for your use. There is one locked room that we use for personal storage and cleaning supplies. Bedrooms not booked are also locked.

Other things to note
Driving to the Property.
Please note that part of the drive to the property is on a section of gravel road and is set in a winding hillside with blinds spots. Caution is needed - especially at night. The driveway into the property is also winding. It is absolutley safe to drive, but again, drivers need to take it slow and with caution.

Hello Travellers! I love adventures, nature, open fires, feeling welcomed and a little lux comfort in my accomodation. The Ridge House is designed with this mind — with a few surprises thrown in. It’s the perfect antidote to city life.
