Comments from guests

"This house was absolutely incredible. From the minute we walked into the house we felt totally relaxed and calm. The silence of the region plus the comfort of all the decor was gorgeous. We spent most of our time either watching the gorgeous fireplace roaring with heat, or sitting out watching the world go by. Thank you so much for our time there - everyone agreed that we WILL be back again!!"

"We had a brilliant time down at Charleson Farm for our 10 year wedding anniversary. Our 3 kids loved the place and the room outside to run around, and also quite enjoyed chasing the roos and helping with the fire duties. While we felt completely isolated (which is what we wanted), there were plenty of great food and wine places within 15-20 minutes to satisfy all our needs. Currently working out when our next trip to Charleson will be. Thanks - it was just brilliant."

"Our weekend was fantastic, we can not say enough about the gorgeous house and for thinking of all the little things needed but often forgotten. We had an amazing time with all the tired and frazzled mothers leaving yesterday feeling revived and a little sore from the laughter and warm with memories that we will keep with us for a long time. It really was a special weekend."

"Charleson Farm was very nice ... the perfect place for families who want total seclusion. The kangaroos came right up to the house almost every day."

"WOW that was great holiday even though we were rained in, we still went walking in the rain and dried by the beautiful fireplace! We definitely plan to come and stay again - it is hard to find such a nice house that fits all my siblings in it!!"

"The house is fantastic for a group weekend away, with all quarters very well designed"

A Beautiful Place I will remember

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful place is located 45 mins away from Lorne and is a great place for families and friends to bond at. The facilities are tip top and you just feel you are away from civilisation- something we wanted for this trip. One of the best things of this place is the owners are so informative, friendly and they reply to even the smallest query as fast as possible. A place that I would highly recommend if you are looking for a beautiful house with easy-going owners. Thanks Maria and John!

14 of us came from China for holiday. It was the best stay in Charleson Farm during the whole trip. House condition is great, quite big living space and recreation room. Nice view from the house, day and night. One of the best escaspe experience ever. Wish to stay even longer. Will defintely come back next time to Australia.

Fantastic location for a relaxing evening

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on the farm. It's a superb spot to unwind, fire up the BBQ, and watch the kangaroos hopping by at sunset and sunrise. Can't wait to return one day.
