Sustainable rural retreat

The Chocolate Lily B&B, an award-winning sustainable retreat, proves that having a minimal impact on the environment and being largely self-sufficient can result in an exquisite place to stay. The bespoke passive solar home means it stays warm in winter and cool in summer – though a dip in the solar-heated eight-metre pool will no doubt help you regulate your own temperature! 

Being sustainable is just one aspect of this gorgeous apartment. First – the name. It’s not made up; there’s actually a native lily of that name found on the property. Add a native garden and organic veggie patch, and you’ll quickly work out where those gorgeous provisions in your brekkie basket come from each morning. 

Then there’s the position. This is really stunning countryside with the apartment angled to bask in stunning views of the North Harcourt hills and Mt Alexander beyond. Close by are Castlemaine and Bendigo, while the cellar doors of Heathcote are within an easy drive. Historic Maldon and Kyneton will provide an excuse to linger a little longer. 

Come as a couple and enjoy this unique and peaceful setting. We almost felt guilty enjoying the magnificent outlook all to ourselves, so next time we'll invite friends or family to share this peaceful two-bedroom retreat.

Please note that the owners live on site, adjacent to the property.
