Ninety minutes from Melbourne but a world away from the clutches of everyday life, The Ridge House is a beautifully renovated, luxurious bushland retreat. Set on 50 acres on a ridge top in the Yarragon Hills, this four-bedroom abode has plenty of room for families to spread out or groups of friends to reconnect around the dining table, in front of a roaring fire, or on the veranda with a sundowner in hand. Lose track of time as you crack a bottle of the neighbours’ (A.R.C. Wines) finest red and get competitive over games of Scrabble and wake to locally-sourced breakfast provisions like Gippsland Jersey milk and butter, and honey from the farm hives. West Gippsland’s hiking trails, farm gates, and wineries are all on your doorstep, but there’s no shame in staying put for slow, delicious days doing not much at all.
