This is a REAL country house rescue mission so please keep your expectations on that level. It is not complete & has issues like dropped floor (lounge) & cracked but stable brickwork & plaster.
Open fire is in an un-renovated lounge area. If you want to use this area understand "un-renovated"
5-10 minute walk to Pub, town & River
Late 6pm check out Sleep in on Sunday!

The space
Restoring a country house back to a much loved space. It’s a work in progress but very comfortable.
Floors are squeaky, plaster is cracked but it’s warm, dry & has super comfortable beds & a cupboard full of games to play
Luxury touches in a rustic setting are high end natural fibre bedding: 100% French flax/linen or pure 100% cotton 500+ thread count sheets.
Large 100% Turkish cotton flat weave towels & wool or feather/down Doona/Duvets.
Coffee machine, microwave, small electric oven with 2 electric elements to cook on, toaster & kettle.
Tea & coffee provided.
Updated renovations are a new combustion wood fire in the kitchen, the front room has been underpinned (but not yet replastered) & a King Living Jasper couch added to the lounge room.
Pets are allowed to stay at this property & there are a range of woollen blankets that you can cover the beds or furniture with for your doggos, please be aware that the woollen blankets onsite will contain pet hair.
BBQ & portable air conditioning available
**a couple of guests have been concerned about the lounge area with its largish cracks in the brickwork & plaster, the house has been through several severe drought years & although it has shifted, it is structurally sound (not moving or falling). It’s 95 years old & isn’t going anywhere soon. It has been checked by a builder. Please be aware of this when booking or reviewing.
This is a fun, rustic, convenient & appropriately priced house, if you like things a bit rustic & a bit of an adventure then this is for you. If you want a 5 star new building or hotel type accommodations then it isn’t for you.

I currently work at Werribee Open Range Zoo. When I’m not working I’m saving my little Wimmera Dimboola house which is my current listing.
You will have this house to yourself.

New advancements are made every couple of weeks, so new photos will be added as I go.

I love to cook when I'm home & if I'm cooking you are most welcome to share a meal with me. I like Music, Sport, TV & of course my dogs. I also know a lot about Melbourne & my local area & love to chat about it. I'm not often stuck for words!
