Stone Haven Guesthouse is on 20 acres in the foothills of the beautiful Yarra Valley in Kangaroo Ground. The VIEWS are absolutely breathtaking. Stone Haven is good for couples, couples with one child and/or one dog. This listing is for the studio Guest House which is seperate from our main house and very private. Stay a night or ten. We would love to share our beautiful property with you and help you indulge in all the Yarra Valley delights, breweries, wineries, restaurants and nature!
“If you are after a place to recharge and rest, Stone Haven is the place to stay! We adored the outdoor spa and being able to toast marshmallows on an outside fire was so lovely. Inside was cosy with the fire that had been thoughtfully set up, ready to light. The views are beautiful... I enjoyed my bath watching a playful little fox who came right up to the window to have a good look at me! We got the stress relief we were desperately in need of and I was lucky enough to celebrate my birthday here. We would love to come back and stay again. Many thanks to Belinda and Rod for sharing their delightful cottage with us. Catherine & Brett”
You’ll love our place because of the ambiance and the outdoors space. Set on 18 acres with horses, goats and lots of wildlife including kangaroos, echidnas and often a pair of eagles circling overhead. On the doorstep of the Yarra Valley Wine district and scenic Kinglake Ranges. The views from the home are spectacular. Our place is suitable for couples, solo adventurers, and furry friends (pets). 50 mins from Melbourne Airport.
“On arrival Scott welcomed us to the property, he thoughtfully got his two beautiful dogs to move away from the car to help our anxious staffy. He then showed us the cabin, gave us a run down of the property and showed us the extra nice touches with stacks of amenities. Definitely a cut above the rest from other air bnbs in that respect. The goats, horses and chickens are an added bonus. The fire is perfect for a winters night. Scott generously gives you more firewood the second day so you can keep warm all night. Google maps took us a strange way that wanted us to enter through someone else's property on the other side, but we got there in the end. The large windows allow for you to feel one with nature and the balcony is a perfect place for brunch. We had a rosella on the doorstep at one point. Just a note for those who are bringing their dog: most of the surrounding walks in the area are not dog friendly and you may have kangaroos close to the cabin when you take them out to pee late at night... which may set your dog off like it did with ours. The book with menus of surrounding restaurants and brochures allowed us to see our options in the area and only a short but slightly bumpy ride from everything. The guest book was a lovely touch. Thank you, a lovely way to refresh and celebrate our belated 6 year anniversary/dog's 9th birthday away from the hustle and bustle of the inner suburbs, but only 45 minutes from the inner east. Glad we took advantage of the long weekend!”

“Thank you Emily for such an incredible anniversary weekend away for me and my partner! The hut really felt like an oasis and the property was a mix between a beautiful farm where animals could run freely and what looked like a rain forest. We did the most beautiful walks around the property, the stars at night were breath taking and it was truly special waking up in such beautiful surroundings where all you could see was greenery outside the windows! We even got to say hello to some gorgeous friendly horses. The hut itself was sparkly clean and styled to perfection. My partner and I both agreed that this will be our little bit of heaven that we return to in future. We made special memories there :)”
