A rose among the ferns in the Yarra Ranges.

Property reviewed by Megan Osborne on Friday, June 2, 2017

Lush gardens surround the secluded retreat that is Winter Rose in Olinda. Pretty as a peony (or rose), the historic homestead offers accommodation for up to six guests across three guestrooms, each with its own gorgeously appointed ensuite bathrooms.

Fringed by verdant fern fronds, the interior of this isolated getaway is stylishly rustic with tasteful antique furnishings. Relax in the spacious shared sunroom and cater for your culinary needs in the fully equipped kitchen or outside with the Webber barbecue. On chilly evenings cuddle up in the cosy lounge room, complete with a charming wood fire to toast your toes in front of after a day exploring the vibrant environs.

When you’re not making the most of the tranquility and comfort of your rosy sanctuary, venture outdoors to experience the natural playground of the Yarra Ranges. There’s something for nature, food and art lovers alike, with national park walking adventures, Rhododendron gardens and the William Ricketts sanctuary all a short drive away. Further afield you may like to indulge in the gourmet delights of the Yarra Valley wine region.

A place of creativity, creature comforts and floral fancies; Winter Rose at One Mernda is all about kicking back and taking in a breath of calming, Victorian countryside air.
