Set within six acres of manicured gardens and rugged bushland, Gracehill is a luxury bed and breakfast combining modern conveniences and undeniable country charm across three unique accommodations.
The Homestead is a classic federation-era building with a queen bedroom, an ensuite with a deep oval spa bath and a gas log fire for long winter nights. The open-plan space has locally crafted timber furnishings, polished floorboards, and stylish fixtures and fittings that complement the building’s historic features.
The Coachhouse has similar amenities, but with a more provincial feel. It’s an elegant space for two couples, featuring high cathedral ceilings, distressed floors, and a spacious open-plan lounge and dining room.
The Barn, the largest of the three options, is a colonial-era cottage with plenty of space for groups and families.
Whichever you choose, each accommodation comes equipped with a coffee machine and a breakfast hamper filled with local bread, farm-fresh eggs, cured bacon and more. After a home-cooked country breakfast, you could spend your day wandering the nearby villages of Olinda and Sassafras or visit the area’s locomotive icon, Puffing Billy.
If you’d prefer to stay put, treat yourself to an on-site massage or take in the magnificent garden views with a glass of wine from the nearby Yarra Valley. The region is less than an hour away, which makes Gracehill a perfect base for exploring the vineyards.
