At only 2 hours from Melbourne these homes are perfect for a little long weekend getaway or perhaps a 'home away from home' in the era of remote working. Looking for fresh air, scenic views and a bit of privacy? Check out these three Victorian Country Retreats.

Victorian Country Retreats

Lynden Farm – Murchison

4 Bedrooms | 2.5 Bathrooms

Rates from $650 per night

Owner and host Julie Johnson spotted a small ‘for sale’ sign whilst driving through Northern Victoria on her way to a horse competition. An avid horse rider and trainer, Julie saw the property and knew right away it was her dream home.

The home though was in a pretty old state but thankfully for interior designer and stylist Julie, it presented an exciting opportunity.

Restoring Lynden Farm to its former glory was a 12-month project and resulted in unearthing the home’s hidden treasures and beautiful bones.

The home is located on 28 hectares of countryside and farmland. The homestead comprises of 4 bedrooms, fully appointed country kitchen, fabulous dining room and a cosy lounge with open fireplace.

For those looking to escape the hustle and bustle it’s a wonderful opportunity to soak up the fresh country air and decompress in a tranquil space.

Looking for a riverside retreat with its own private ‘beach’ – well we might just know the spot!

Hide and Seek is a 5-bedroom luxury residence set on the banks of the Goulburn River. The timber slat exterior blends with the surrounding gum trees and rural landscape. The interior combines sleek architectural lines, contemporary wood furniture and gleaming white walls, allowing the framed views to work their magic.

Set amongst 100 acres of bushland, 5kms of sandy banks and close to both Michelton and Tahbilk winery it’s the perfect escape to get away from it all but close enough to enjoy some of the regional delights.

For more information see our recent Meet The Makers conversation with host and owner  Nedra Kriekenbeek.
