Lyrebird Cottages are contemporary, architect-designed mud brick and timber cottages with spectacular views over the Yarra Valley.

Two cottages built to the same design and standard surrounded by ten acres of mountain-top gardens and forest. The view from each cottage is magnificent. The highest standards of accommodation compliment the beautiful natural surroundings. You are only ten minutes to the nearest vineyard and 13 minutes to Healesville shops.

Lyrebird Cottages, where nature works its magic.

Imagine yourself high on a mountain in a mud brick and timber cottage with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. Now fill the landscape with lyrebirds, wallabies, sunsets and huge starry skies, space and peace.

Go down into the valley and fill it with vineyards, a river, sophisticated wining and dining and friendly shopkeepers with time for a chat. Frame all this with a dramatic range of mountains covered in pristine native forest. Now realise you are only just over an hour from Melbourne.

The cottages are designed for you to enjoy nature in absolute comfort. Spacious yet cosy, the mud brick and timber interior and abundant natural light give a feeling of warmth and peace.

The cottages have a fully equipped kitchen with oven, hotplates, microwave, dishwasher. One bedroom separate from living area, queen size bed with electric blanket. Separate bathroom with double spa, shower and heated towel rail. Wood fire and reverse cycle air-conditioning. Stereo, television DVDs, CD's and books. Barbecue on large attached deck. Quality linen and towels provided. Off-street parking next to the cottage

A generous country breakfast is provided for the first day of your stay for you to cook at your leisure. Late check out 12 noon. Please note, guests are welcome to smoke outside.
