About This Listing
Welcome to Woodend and thank you for checking this listing!
"The Shack" is a self contained cottage which shares the property with the main house, having its own large lawn area and grove of pin oaks to sit under during hot summer days. The cottage with its candle light, furnishings and self contained facilities offers a relaxed and private getaway for one person or a couple. The living area boasts a cosy indoor fireplace for those chilly days and a verandah which catches the morning sun. The house offers everything you are used to at home including a fully equipped kitchen and barbecue, TV with DVD player and heating.
"The Shack" is a 20 minute walk from the Woodend township, 50 minutes drive from Melbourne CBD and 5-10 minutes from Hanging Rock and Mt Macedon.
Woodend is situated in the Macedon Ranges, a district which boasts attractions such as fine food, wine, relaxing spa facilities and art galleries - being half an hour from major tourist centres like Daylesford to the west, Castlemaine to the North and Lancefield to the east.
The Woodend Winter Arts Festival, held on the Queen's Birthday Weekend in June, is an event where artisans from around Australia gather to perform. The area also supports a large horse-racing community.
Enjoy the area, stay in a cosy shack and I hope to welcome you in the near future!
Staple food items are provided but guests are required to provide their own food.
We stayed at "The Shack" and it was a perfect private, romantic getaway. All facilities that you would need are at hand in this cosy cottage and the property's gardens are picturesque. The host, Thea, was welcoming and had provided everything in "The Shack" that we could've asked for. If only we had more time on our hands to stay longer.
We had a delightful stay. The Shack is a beautiful little cottage, well appointed with everything you need, and with a lovely open fire place. A great spot for a quiet weekend.
Our weekend away at 'The Shack' was lovely. The self contained cottage was cosy and warm with a fireplace and heating. Thea made us feel welcome with music playing and candles lit on arrival. The complimentary food was a very generous and unexpected surprise. The surroundings were beautiful, the walk into Woodend was a little longer than expected in the cold but still manageable. We would definitely recommend staying here for a quiet weekend.
Thea has provided a wonderful cottage experience. From start to finish, Thea was superb in terms of her communications and accommodating my needs. As soon as I arrived to The Shack I felt I had been transported to somewhere truly wonderful. I departed The Shack feeling incredibly rejuvenated knowing that my experience there had become a unique and treasured special memory. The Shack is a beautiful and cosy space furbished stylishly. I look forward to returning and cannot recommend enough the Shack and Thea's remarkable hospitality and thoughtful personal touches. Thank you Thea.
We loved The Shack it was absolutely gorgeous! We arrived to find everything warm and cosy and very welcoming. The kitchen supplies were wonderful, fresh crusty loaf of bread milk,yoghurt, butter, jams & fruit & veg were provided so we didn't even need to go back out in search of food. The property surrounding the shack is beautiful & the view from every window was charming. We would happily stay here again. Woodend is a sweet country town well worth visiting we loved it.Thea was a wonderful host allowing us to check out later on Sunday morning after my friend unfortunately was sick all Saturday night. Overall I would highly recommend a stay at the shack if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle & immerse yourself in peace and serenity!
Lovely romantic room for a great weekend relax escape. Very detail room contains everything we need. Really appreciate thea's considerate. We will definitely come back again. Strongly recommended!!!
