Loved the farm getaway. The hosts were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The country cottage was clean and had a great country feel. Plenty of farm animals and loved the walk through the veggie patch and collecting the eggs. It was close to Healesville Sanctuary which we also enjoyed. The food hamper was amazing as was the breakfast. Can't wait for our next trip which is already booked!! Very happy customer and we will definitely bring the kids for the next trip.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Your own beautiful farmhouse with a touch of luxury ... on a gentle north facing slope, Harvest Farm is an 18 acre property just minutes from the township overlooking the Healesville Sanctuary. Private gardens of camellias & roses, huge oaks, mountain views, the ultimate in style, relaxation & tranquility, this is what a country escape should be like! The property has two houses - Dairy House & Harvest House. Dairy House welcomes you with an open plan living and dining-area with windows overlooking decades old rhodedendron & camellias. The expansive decking is ideal for relaxing with a glass of chilled rose while grazing on charcuterie & cheeses picked up from our kitchen & butcher produce store. Dairy House offers two enormous, beautifully detailed king size bedrooms (one available as a twin) with electric blankets & mohair throws. The large bathroom with spa bath has french windows overlooking the garden & pastures. Big white towels, handmade local soaps and a heated floor makes the bathroom a lovely retreat. The fully equipped kitchen is central to the house & offers oven, cooktop, dishwasher, microwave, and fridge. White crockery, big saucepans, chopping boards, sharp knives, local olive oil & sea salt flakes are ready for cooking up a storm with the amazing local produce you can gather from farm gates, local markets and produce stores. The living area is flooded with natural light and features a large olive green couch and lounge, lots of cushions, flat screen TV, DVD player & CD player. The living area has a split system & cosy wood heater. The house is readied for guests with masses of flowers from the garden, handmade local soap, fresh ground Genovese coffee and T2 tea leaves. When the weather is fine there are countless places to secret yourself; swing in the hammock under the 120 year old sprawling oak, take in the fresh air and mountain views, sit on the large deck in the afternoon, or dine at twilight. In winter, stoke up the wood fire and cosy up on the couch with a glass of red wine, the weekend papers, some jazz and watch the clouds roll over the mountains. The kids will love spending time with the horses, climbing in the tree house, exploring the garden, the little playground, collecting eggs for breakfast, feeding bread to the cows & discovering country space. Harvest House offers two beautifully detailed king size bedrooms (one available as a twin), a large bathroom with spa bath and French windows overlooking the garden and pastures. The fully equipped kitchen has windows overlooking the original succulent garden and includes an oven, cooktop, dishwasher, microwave, fridge and an original woodstove.

The house is readied for guests with masses of flowers from the garden, handmade local soap, fresh ground coffee and twining tea. When the weather is fine there are countless places to secrete yourself; in a deckchair to take in the fresh air and mountain views, sit on the front veranda in the afternoon, dine on the back terrace at twilight. In winter, stoke up the wood fire and cosy up on the couch, or lie in front of the fire on the huge persian cushions with a glass of red wine, the weekend papers, some jazz and watch the clouds roll over the mountains. ... more less
