About this listing
You have the whole house to yourself which is close to town (4 blocks) and on a quiet street. Enjoy sitting on the verandah and take in the great views of the gorge and National Park. Newly renovated kitchen. Free broadband wifi.
The Beechworth rock pools are a great spot for a dip on a warm day and only a few minutes drive or a 10min walk from our house.
House available in the historic gold mining town of Beechworth in North East Victoria, Australia. Our house is generally only available on weekends and/or when we go away on holidays so guests would have the whole place to themselves. If we get a booking it's a perfect excuse for us to travel somewhere else. We do not run a B&B as such but are happy to make our home available when we're not staying there. Please note that we rarely accept a single night booking. Generally our minimum is 2 nights. For more information on travel, attractions and much more on Beechworth and the surrounding area search 'Beechworth' online.
The main bedroom has a queen sized bed and the second smaller room has a double futon mattress on the floor suitable for another couple or a single. The other room in the house is our kids room and if you have young ones, our cots are available too. Our house also has a granny flat available in a separate building, 10metres from the main house. This granny flat has a double bed, TV, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster but there is no plumbing or toilet available. Guests staying in the granny flat would need to use the main house bathroom. Towels and linen is provided but please BYO sheets if using the kids cots. Free wifi (fast broadband) is available for your smart phone, tablet or computer. The house is only a 7min walk (500m) from the centre of town with a range of cafe's, a famous bakery, microbrewery, wine bars, 4 pubs and some excellent dining, unique shopping and the historic precinct available. From the verandah at the front of the house there is a great view of the gorge and the National Park. Walking trails in the National Park are also literally only a few minutes walk away. There's a big outdoor BBQ in the back yard too which guests are more than welcome to use.
Beechworth is a great destination for mountain biking...we are active mountain bikers ourselves and can help you enjoy the local riding including the local mountain bike park. The town is also a great base to travel further afield in the north-east including the wineries of Rutherglen (30min), the picture postcard mountain township of Bright (40min), spectacular Mt Buffalo National Park (1hour), Mt Beauty (1hour) and the alpine snow resorts of Mt Hotham and Falls Creek (1.5hours).

Public transport is available to Beechworth by train and coach bus service from both Wangaratta and Albury.
Our rates are $119/night for one or two people. Additional people are an extra $20 per person per night. For major events and public holidays (ie- Christmas-New Year period, Easter, long weekends) a minimum stay may be required.
