Start of dialog content
When a place has been put together with this much love and care, it’s difficult not to be swept up in the sheer romance of it all. A Winter Rose, built c.1910, has been meticulously restored and enhanced to accommodate the modern guest. The house is positioned perfectly so that you can sit and admire the established gardens from the comfort of the light filled sunroom. Or you can simply take a turn around the meandering paths and be captivated by the unique garden art and towering trees. Accommodating up to six guests, with three uniquely decorated and privately accessed bedrooms, this is the perfect spot for 2 or for 2-3 couples who can socialize in the shared spaces but retreat to their own bedrooms, with private bathrooms, when a little alone time is needed. Whilst retaining its rustic vintage charm, with a nod to yesteryear in its beautiful selection of furniture and artwork, a Winter Rose is the perfect mountain retreat. And once you enter the maple leaf gates you will feel inspired, refreshed and ready to return to the world renewed. COMING SOON: The stand-alone studio at the front of the property will soon be available for private events, creative retreats an
We love the tall trees - the fresh mountain air - the views of Melbourne city lights at night from SkyHigh Mt Dandenong. We love exploring the interesting shops, dining at Coonara Springs Restaurant. Our most special joy though is the nature, bird song, wild life we see from day to day - we never want to leave!
Sassafras, Olinda and Mt Dandenong are the 3 beautiful and ecclectic villages in the Dandenongs. There are 5 Public Gardens, thousands of acres of national parks, cafes, 1000 steps to climb if you wish. Or, maybe you'll just choose to lounge about and enjoy a massage, a little gentle exploring of shops .There's as much or as little to do as you wish. A walk to Olinda or a walk through the forest in Sherbrooke, or a drive to the Yarra Valley wonderful wineries will be a beautiful day out. You will, however, come running home to curl up by the fire in the winter! Coffee at Ripe or Proserpina in Sassafras. Great hot breakfast for you at Fat Badger or Ripe. Traditional English tearoom at Miss Marples, but the highlight is a High Tea at Fortnums in Sassafras. We love , The Piggery Cafe at Burnham Beeches in Sherbrooke, Coonara Springs Restaurant in Olinda or Dudleys in Olinda for the best pizza and casual dining.
