Built as a log cabin about 30 years ago, Barbers Lodge has been renovated to offer you a beautiful mountain hideaway.

Two bedrooms, upstairs one with a queen bed, a bathroom adjacent with a big walk in shower. The living room, dining and new kitchen are also on this level and there is a little comfortable office room if you must work!

The lounge has a big open fire, the interior has logs on the walls, so is very cosy with leather couches, a big TV on a tripod, a lovely chair near the window with a lamp to sit and read.

The new kitchen is lovely - a steam oven, gas cooktop, double door fridge, built in hot and cold filtered water, all equipped and with everything you will need to not have to go out!

Downstairs a spacious bedroom with a king bed and ensuite bathroom with a walk in shower. Views over the garden, roses peeking in the windows in season.

There is a front veranda to sit and enjoy the trees and bird song, and the back veranda has comfortable chairs, an outdoor seat and a fire-pit for winter.

The garden is filled with fruit trees and we will be adding vegetables and herbs for your enjoyment as we can. The villages of Mt Dandenong, Olinda and Sassafras are around a 10 minute drive. Just a kilometer away is the lookout over Silvan Dam and also a sighting of Melbourne from the ridgeline. Destiny Point Cafe is at the top of Barbers Road and so is the wonderful Five Ways Gallery, now called Kapi Art Space, so an ever changing gallery. We think you will love this getaway in its garden setting, behind the closed gates and away from the world.

Of course there is Wifi, and Netflix (with your own account) on the TV -those worldly things you might wish were not there!
