Located just 1hr from Melbourne, Cheeky Fox Retreat is the perfect getaway for corporate, arts and family groups. Sitting on 50 acres, the exclusive property offers a private, inspiring location to work or relax in and is available for 1 night stays.

The space

Cheeky Fox Retreat offers a relaxing getaway for groups of up to 10 people.

Guest access

Guests have exclusive access to the house and immediate grounds, including swimming pool and gardens and you are welcome to explore the wider property and walking tracks through the bush. Note that as a working hobby farm the owners reside in a separate dwelling on the property and may be present tending to the animals during your stay.

Within the house there's a large living space, boardroom/dining room, award winning kitchen, library, private cinema and music studio (musicians are required to supply their own equipment).

Interaction with guests

Your hosts will be available to work with you and make sure your stay is perfect in every way. We aim to greet all our guests to show you around the house and facilities before we leave you to enjoy the retreat.

We like to get to know our guests prior to arrival so that we can provide as much of a tailored experience as possible. Please tell us a bit about your group and plans for your stay when making your booking or enquiry so that we can offer you the best advice for your stay.

For those guests planning to visit the Yarra Valley wineries, we offer private wine tours directly from the property and can either design a tour for you or take you wherever you'd like to go if you. Ask about our ‘Cheeky Wine Tours’ when enquiring for more information.

We can also provide conference & event co-ordination, in-house catering, team building/entertainment and transport options for an additional fee so please let us know your requirements when booking.

Other things to note

The Cheeky Fox Retreat is home to some local farm animals including 30 sheep and three horses. We also have nightly visits from wombats and the occasional Cheeky Fox. With the animals on the property please remember to close all gates after you use them.

Kinglake is known for its mountain winters so don't forget to pack your gumboots, uggboots and warm clothing from April to October. Note the swimming pool is not available over the winter period (it's solar heated so we can't get it to a comfortable temperature at that time year but we find red wine by the fire a pretty good alternative!).

We are located on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people and acknowledge them as Traditional Owners.

Jason and Linda are one of the most welcoming hosts I have experienced on Airbnb, they are understanding and considerate to any issue you have, yet still manage to respect your privacy. The property itself is immaculate, with enough bedrooms to satisfy even the biggest family. A beautiful pool, fireplace, cinema room and a spacious outside area, that has a serene view that you just don't get in the city. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone if they're looking for a cheeky getaway

We had a large group needing somewhere to stay after spending the day at the Country Races. This place was the perfect setting to reflect on the days activities over beverage taking in the amazing views from the back verandah. A brand new BBQ enabled us to cook a great meal for everyone, and the huge kitchen allowed plenty of room for prep and storage in the gigantic fridge! Loads of room meant everyone was comfortable and had a great time. Perfect house for large group. The ad doesn't do it justice. This place is great!

What a great place to stay at! The Cheeky Fox Retreat property is an amazing house surrounded by spectacular views of blue sky, green grass, kangaroos and the view of an amazing sunrise without even leaving the bed! The house is very well structured, clean and organised. Every room has heating appliances and lots of comfort including very comfortable beds with electric blankets and cushion-y quilts. Clean, fresh and soft bath towels and impeccable bathrooms. Check in was super easy and well informed. All you need for a great stay is there, from a very nice fireplace, enough parking space for cars, very solid and fast Wi-fi internet connection, kitchen appliances, dishwasher, board games, great TV screens, to access to laundry appliances, ironing board and iron. The owners are super kind and always willing to help in case you need them, they provided information about the house and the area from the initial booking time and during our stay. We had thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Cheeky Fox Retreat. Very nice and smooth booking, stay, relaxed atmosphere and lovely surroundings. We all wish we would have stayed for longer! We will definitely go back! Thank you very much!
