Whitegum Cottage - Warburton

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Whitegum Cottage is nestled in amongst a quarter of an acre of landscaped and natural native flora attracting gorgeous native birds.

The fenced property provides a space for couples or families to enjoy a quiet breakfast on the verandah, a BBQ lunch on the back decking overlooking the mountains beyond, or a cuppa in amongst the native bush garden.

Outside there a many generous areas on the property where you can enjoy your favourite beverage with your partner while keeping company with the resident king parrots, rosellas, cockatoos and kookaburras or safely play hide and seek with the family until it’s time for dinner. It is also suited for 4 adults who just want to spend some time away.

Whitegum cottage is self contained with three large size bedrooms, a generous living area and a laundry with a washer and dryer.

The upstairs bedroom provides a cosy and comfortable queen size bed, a large ensuite bathroom, with a shower, toilet and inviting soaking tub for two, that looks out to the garden. The downstairs bedrooms contain a lovely queen size bed with views of the garden, and the second bedroom contains two comfortable single beds. The downstairs bathroom accommodates a generous shower & toilet facility. Towels & all linen supplied.

The fully equipped kitchen provides you with the opportunity to share a meal together in your peaceful surroundings. Facilities include: electric stove & oven; a microwave oven; a toaster, kettle, fridge and a range of cooking utensils, glassware, crockery and cutlery, pots & pans.

Basic dry ingredients are also provided: tea, fairtrade coffee, sugar, salt & pepper, cooking oil. There are also basic herbs and spices, but you may like to cut some fresh rosemary, parsley or thyme from the garden.

A 10min scenic drive into Warburton brings you to a variety of cafes, restaurants, local supermarket, essential conveniences, cinema, as well as shops that sell handmade, locally made items. A short drive beyond Warburton gives you the opportunity to explore the wonderful wineries, galleries, markets and wildlife in the Yarra Valley. Not forgetting the 30 minute drive to Mt Donna Buang – with winter snow.

Whether you enjoy Warburton in the summer or, in the colder months of winter, you will experience time out from city thinking and city being. A stay in might mean you curl up with a good book in a sunlit nook or play a game of foosball on a full size table, UNO or board games in front of the wood heater. Alternatively an eclectic selection of Blu-rays and DVD’s might engage your mood.

Mobile phone coverage is limited but sometimes accessed on the back decking and on the kitchen windowsill! There is a landline phone to call in and out if the need arises.

Cycling enthusiasts and leisure riders alike can enjoy the wonderful Warburton to Lilydale bike trail, with its many entry and exit points. This track also provides opportunities for great walks and sightseeing.

Other attractions of picturesque Warburton include the O’Shanassy Aqueduct Trail, the Warburton River Circuit, Redwood Forest and the Ada tree walk.

We love taking our dog Ally on holidays with us so we can appreciate that you might like to bring yours. While our property is fenced we ask that you don’t leave your friendly pooch alone for too long. Our neighbours on one side have chickens and neighbours down the back have their own inquisitive furry friends. Please be mindful they are in their homes and consider the temperament of your dog when you come to visit. Your friendly hound is welcome inside but please respect our request for them to keep off furniture and bedding.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, so you can begin your well deserved time away.

Cosy cottage perfect for a weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable cottage with everything you could need. Great communication from the hosts who have thought of everything you need in the cottage, they even left happy birthday muffins which was lovely. Amazing selection of games and DVDs, even a fusball table. King parrots sit in the trees waiting for you to put out seed for them. Would stay again :)

Great little cottage and a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The family thoroughly enjoyed our little early winter break. Cold days, colder nights but a warm house along with some friendly local wildlife provided memories that will survive for many years to come. Plenty of wood available to fuel the fireplace that got a fair workout over the duration. Great to walk around the local streets and a short drive to many great destinations.
