Beautiful 2 acre bush block 3 kms south of main shops of Castlemaine. Birds, resident echidna and kangaroos at dusk and sunsets can be seen from the deck, living area and beautiful big bath. Circuit walk through local bush is close by and plenty of bike trails to explore.
Quiet and well appointed with very comfortable queen size bed and wood fired heater for a relaxing for romantic getaway, weekend or a break from technology and general business of life (No TV, internet). Hot water/heating is provided by 2 gas bottles outside (regularly checked contact details for re- filling are stamped on the bottles outside). The fridge is a small bar fridge as seen on the listing photo. Tank water is the water supplied and there is a filter jug under the kitchen sink which can be used if needed. There is an electric heater in the tall cupboard near the bed if needed. Enjoy exploring an extensive range of bike tracks, walks with the family, antique shops, gold diggings, the beautiful town of Maldon just 16 kms away, many art, craft and foodie places to enjoy. Castlemaine Information Centre (near the IGA in Castlemaine town) is a treasure trove of ideas and often hosts very interesting exhibitions. So many things to explore in Castlemaine, Campbell's Creek and surrounds.
Access to whole Love Shack.
Shed on property. Access on request.
Extra wood for the wood heater is in the 3 sided wooden outshed (on the left as you drive up the driveway).

We do not live on site. Very happy to be called on the mobile phone if needed.
We encourage the motto 'Leave places in better condition than found' and hope if you notice a dusty surface (we live on a dirt road!) you may dust it and if there are any maintenance issues to please let us know.

Due to our very reasonable rates it's BYO linen (sheets, pillow cases) and towels and tea towels. If you book us it means agreeing to undertake the cleaning chores (sweep/mop/vacume, wipe fridge, benches, stove top, clear any food from the sink and sponges, clean toilet, bathroom (esp wipe floor with towel provided to keep the floor dry and free from slime), as well as the request for all guests to empty all rubbish bins, replace firewood when used and leave the bedding as you found it :). Leaving the place messy will result in requesting between $50- $100 cleaning charge. This way we can keep the prices down. It is a very small place and really doesn't take long at all :)
Please note you may at times 'gently hear the sounds of machines' from down the road a bit of the local Castlemaine Landfill (these are words from a recent guest) and think we need to note this on our listing. It really is not a big deal when you read all our wonderful reviews.
- The outside deck is not enclosed and there is a dam so supervision for toddlers and young children is required outside at all times
- Can sleep 6 if the 2 sofas are used
