The cottage is beautifully appointed and can comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests. The Cottage has an open fireplace, outdoor eating area plus indoor eating area for 12. Enjoy the property and wander across to the vegetable garden, to the chickens or around the property. Those that are energetic can walk up the peaceful unsealed road and chill out in the countryside. Those that want some action can bike into town. There are two adult bikes and one child’s bike. There is a basketball ring, tyre swing, children’s cubby/playhouse and sandpit and climbing ropes and swing.

The Bunk House is only 5 metres away from the main cottage is a unique style of accommodation for a family or children on a budget and here we can sleep up to 6 guests. On special occasions we rent out the main House which has three queen size bedrooms and a single bedroom. The House is 1927 and is beautifully appointed with timber floors and fireplaces.

The cottage and the main house have fully equipped kitchens with all the modern appliances. Our ovens are country double ovens that the country cooker or chef in the family can enjoy.

We have made sure that all rooms are well appointed with quality comfort king size beds, quality bedding, flat screen televisions with dvd players and ipod docks. Being out in the country there is lots of room for that BBQ or for a peaceful getaway.

The cottage has a huge bathroom with double shower, double basins and marble floor. A country bath awaits those that need to relax. We also have a fully operational laundry for those wanting to stay for longer breaks.

The Bunk House has a rustic feel with a shower, toilet and modern vanity and cabinet. There are four bunks and a double bed and the beautiful timber floors. Again flat screen TV and a front verandah where you can sit and watch the sun set.

What a beautiful, serene setting! The kids loved collecting the chicken eggs with Catherine and we certainly enjoyed eating them! The horses were so beautiful! We enjoyed sitting around the outdoor fire toasting marshmallows and sipping our wine. Would definitely recommend for a family weekend away!

Wood Duck cottage is in a lovely location- views across rolling hills and paddocks, trees, all a proper country get away. This is well suited for a long weekend or a longer term stay as it is basically set up as a home. If you want to walk to Yea it is possible, however there are no pedestrian friendly routes to take.

Work in financial services and online education and love to meet new Airbnb guests. My husband Craig has a quick service restaurant in Melbourne. We love our Yea property, our horse and dog Sam and our three children and their partners... Not in that order off course.
