My house is owner built using lots of local materials and is very welcoming. A good nights sleep is almost guaranteed and a relaxing atmosphere to spend time at home or visit our many local attractions.
Welcome to Natimuk and thank you for checking this listing!
Welcome to my owner built house which has lots of character! You will find the place quiet and comfortable. Your breakfast will be supplied and other food basics are included. I am more than happy to cook for you or you may self cater, your choice. Simple evening meals are also available. All linen & towels are supplied. Price for one person is $130 or $65 per person for 2 or more people.
I am potter and have a pottery studio attached and a wood fired kiln, so you could learn to play with clay or go climb a rock with local guides! The chooks (Australian for chickens) that supply the fresh organic eggs no longer free roam in the back yard where the organic vegetable garden grows food for us to eat. The chickens ate last years vegetables!
Natimuk is located close to the climbing mecca of Mount Arapiles and Natimuk Lake which now has water!
Natimuk has a great Pub with meals and a weekend Cafe with excellent coffee and meals, a climbing gear shop, a general store, a craft shop and newsagent/pots office.
I look forward to welcoming you to Natimuk in the near future!
Guests have the whole house to themselves. There is a key code for the door for easy access.
I come to the house in the morning to cook breakfast and catch up. Guests can then get local information and suggestions on where to go.
Natimuk is a quiet country town of 500 people. Friendly and quirky with a mix of climbers, towns folk, farmers, artists and retiring climbers!
One local bus a day passes to Horsham in the mid morning and back again mid afternoon.
The Wimmera also has great recreational lakes and is an ideal cycling venue as well as rock climbing , bird watching and orchid hunting in spring. So bring all your toys :)
Quirky, comfortable, quiet accommodation with great provisions (juices, cereals & a home cooked breakfast). Well worth a visit & well located halfway between Melbourne & Adelaide for those travelling between cities.
Heather has a lovely cottage which is very welcoming, clean and charming! Her cooked breakfast was a great start to the day along with her bubbly personality and caring nature. I hope I can come and stay for longer next time.
Heather was very accommodating to my late arrival and made a wicked breakfast that set me up for a solid days climbing. Her house is wonderful, much larger than the pictures show, and has everything you could possibly want for a short or long stay.
I will be staying again on my next trip to Arapiles and will recommend Heather's house to my friends.
For many of us staying with Heather was the highlight of our Kangaroo island road trip. Magical comes to mind as we entered the house to explore by ourselves and discover the fascinating nature of the house and its host.
Await surprises and inspiration. We absolutely loved it! And we will be back ;)
My wife and I had a great time at Heather's place. It's warm and cosy, with a mountain chalet sort of feeling. Heather's passion for outdoor, skiing and climbing fed some very interesting discussions.
Our bellies were also fed, with a very nice breakfast. If you go through Natimuk, stop at Heather's place and take a look at her pottery!
I stumbled across Heather's B&B when I was looking for a place for me and my visiting parents to stay. And it was even better than I thought it would be. The house attached to the pottery is a calm and cosy place. We instantly felt at home. Heather is an incredible and very interesting host and we really enjoyed the conversations in the morning over coffee and a deliciously cooked breakfast. She took really good care of us and we enjoyed every moment with her and in the house. Thanks for a great experience and I'm sure I'll see you again very soon :)
We wanted to go there for the whole week end, unfortunately, we could only stay only one night due to busy work. The place was so charming and cosy, the bed was amazing, we just would not want to leave. Moreover, Heather came in the morning to cook us a lovely breakfast and she was so friendly.
It's really quiet and relaxing, perfect place to stay if you want to see the Grampians and release all the stress.
It's just beautiful!
We loved staying at Heather's place in Natimuk. It was beautifully designed and she provided us with fresh eggs and salad leaves from the garden. We hiked up the nearby Mount Arapiles, cooked up a feast in her well stocked kitchen, and listened to the lightening storm on the verandah. It was great value and we hope our home is like it someday.
Heather was great - fun to talk to and cooked a wonderful breakfast in the morning. Her place was cozy and we had it to ourselves overnight. We highly recommend staying with Heather.
