Additional Information

“ If you are looking for a relaxing getaway in a beautiful house and picturesque location The Ridge House will certainly exceed your expectations.” - Claire June 2020

THE RIDGE HOUSE
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 birdlife. You will definitely be greeted by our resident Guinea Fowl, Ginny, look for a spare bit of your morning toast.

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 new beds and bedding.

BREAKFAST
We provide generous breakfast provisions for your first night of stay. These include locally made milk, 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.

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.

GUEST AMENITIES
Linen & towels provided
Organic body and cleaning products supplied.
Firewood Supplied

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 absolutely safe to drive, but again, drivers need to take it slow and with caution.

PETS
We are open to having your fur baby stay but there are restrictions because we are part of a larger working farm - please email if this request interests you.
