East Mt. Mitchell -- the gateway to the Pyrenees



Dear Neil, Melissa, Charlie and Ed,

Just wanted to sincerely thank you for hosting us over Australia Day Long Weekend just past. We had rarely ventured much past “major cities” with our young family so our Farm Stay in Waubra at your delightful property was a well overdue and a much enjoyed experience for us all.

Your warmth and enthusiasm shone through and definitely enhanced our stay. Not to mention the cookies / wide range of breaky options and the home made tomato relish. The manner in which Charlie and Ed hosted our three children taking them on walks to the shearing shed, the dam to see the ducks and of course the sheep was greatly appreciated and enjoyed by all.

Half Day trips to nearby townships of Clunes, Avoca and of course Ballarat enabled peaceful drives, sampling of Wineries and of course Country Bake Houses with homemade cakes and coffees a daily routine.

We can but only highly recommend Coach House B&B at East Mt. Mitchell for any family or couple who want a “Country Relax and some Fresh Air”.

Best Wishes

“The Howells”, Camberwell.

Dear Melissa and Neil,

Thank you for your warm hospitality on our recent family country experience at your lovely cottage.

You contributed to our stay in such a positive way. The cottage was wonderful! Your attention to detail with the decor was welcoming and instantly relaxing. The atmosphere was harmonious and so peaceful. It was just what we needed!

The kids totally enjoyed seeing the farm animals, the pool and just strolling around in the evenings enjoying the sunsets and night sky.

We will definitely be coming back again.

With thanks,

Kathy, Trevor, Hannah and Adam King — Blackburn, Melbourne

It's almost time to leave the Coach House B&B at East Mt. Mitchell, and my partner and I are feeling sad. Over the past week that we've been on holiday here, life has slowed down...we turned off our phones, stopped watching TV and forgotten about the outside world. There's something about the smell of clean country air and the vast expanse of the landscape that makes you feel a sense of wonder, a kind of enchantment with life that's all too easy forgotten with everyday city living. Waking up to cows and sheep and the sounds of beautiful birds is quite a contrast to the traffic in inner city Melbourne

It was fantastic having the full kitchen to use as we could make our own meals every night and sit out in the private courtyard. You don't need to bring food for breakfast, that's for sure, as we were provided a wide range of delicious breakfast options. We were really excited to be so close to the many wineries in the Pyrenees region. It was short trip down the road to the Quion Hill winery in Waubra, where we sampled a number of delicious wines and marvelled at their wide selection of jams, preserves and home made olive oil.

We can thoroughly recommend staying at the Coach House to refresh your senses and sample the best of what country Victoria has to offer. The B&B offers a nice balance between complete privacy and the option of engaging in farm life. Thanks Melissa and Neil – we look forward to staying with you again soon!
