Our Weekend Nest

We had the opportunity to stay one night in this beautiful ‘nest’. It's huge, surrounded by nature and exactly what we love: with big windows all around so you literally feel the nature around you. After we explored the cabin a bit, relaxed on the couch and organized our stuff, we jumped in the Defender and drove up to the mountain top for sunset. What a view! From up there you can see the whole valley and the Goulburn River. This is a great spot for hiking. We headed back to the house to cook dinner and had lots of plans to play board games and enjoy the house but the sky was incredibly full of stars even though the moon was so bright, so we just sat outside and enjoyed the peace and quiet. We reluctantly headed home but with the intention of definitely coming back, but next time during winter because we can’t wait to light up that fireplace and get all cozy in this amazing 'nest'.

Let me just say, the bedroom in this cabin is gonna get you! With a 360˚ view, you can imagine how the sunrise is from up there! We woke up with that soft yellow light coming up over the mountains and it was a blast! I could happily wake up like that every morning! The bush outside the house is just full of wildlife, birds singing loudly, kangaroos, wombats, you get a bit of everything.

  • Swim
  • Walk
  • Scenic Drive
Goulboun River
We surrendered to the call of the river and it was a blast! I won’t lie, the crystal clear water was freezing cold because it comes from the bottom of nearby Lake Eildon, but for a hot day it was so refreshing and just perfect....
Exploring the property
We went on a walk around the property to experience the whole country summer vibe. The bush outside the house is just full of wildlife, birds singing loudly all over, kangaroos, wombats, you get a bit of everything....
Defender sunset drive
We took the Defender and went up to the mountains for sunset. What a view! From up there you can see the whole valley and the Goulburn River and is also great for hiking....
