Hello and welcome to the Gold Shack!
The Gold Shack is a lovingly restored mud brick cottage in the Chewton Bushlands.
Surrounded by gum trees on a three acre bush block, it’s just a few minutes down a dirt road from Chewton, the famous former gold rush town.
The Gold Shack includes an undercover BBQ, paved and shaded outdoor eating area, as well as an outdoor campfire and festoon lighting to capture that after dark magic.
Indoors you’ll find two bedrooms (each with a queen bed), a generous bathroom with instantaneous hot water and a large walk-in shower, and an open plan lounge and kitchen with a cosy wood heater.
The kitchen comes with a gas cooktop and electric oven, alongside custom made cabinetry, mid century dining table with four chairs, and all the cooking equipment you could possibly need. Kitchen also contains a split system heater/air con.
Each bedroom has a queen bed, warm doonas, high quality linen, as well as woollen blankets, soft underlays, electric blankets, and a ceiling fan.
With white washed walls, concrete and slate floors, and old fashioned windows, the Gold Shack is the definition of rustic charm. Get ready for leisurely evenings in front of the fireplace, star gazing, bush walks, and gallivanting about the countryside.
The Gold Shack is an excellent base for exploring Bendigo (approx 30 mins drive), Kyneton (approx 25 mins), Castlemaine (15 mins), Daylesford (40 mins), and Maldon (25 mins).
Things to note:
As the name suggests, the Chewton Bushlands is a natural, bush setting. Bring warm clothes. Expect wildlife, birds, insects, dirt, all that good stuff.
The Gold Shack is located within a very leafy residential area. If you’re after something super remote, this might not be place you’re looking for.
