After 33 years of building an accommodation business on the farm, the Williamson Family at Lochinver Carisbrook announce the retirement of hosting guests on the property, we will be focusing on our agricultural interests. The older generation will change pace and enjoy seeing the next generations take on the property.
Lochinver Homestead and Cottages is centrally located in Victoria’s Goldfields and was ideal for hosting guests . It began when we renovated an old building overlooking Tullaroop Creek as a farm stay and grew to offering fully self-contained , self catering accommodation..
The experience became popular and one building at a time grew to four residences accommodating large groups of up to 40 guests at a time. There were gatherings of families and friends, celebrations from birthdays to weddings and boutique business groups.
Just 2 hours from Melbourne, it was an easy escape from the City. Activities were as simple as watching the world go by, observing the rhythms of modern farm life or taking long walks along the river within the farm park looking for platypus and bird life. There was and is also a myriad of Goldfields cafes, wineries, galleries to explore.
Lochinver Homestead and Cottages was and is all about history and country hospitality. This was a place to retreat and slow down or to gather and celebrate. Large country gardens overlook the paddocks of this beautiful farm, enabling us to watch the sheep and cattle graze in the distance.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Land on which we live, host guests and farm today, the Jaara people of the Dja Dja Wurrung Nation, we pay our respects to their Elders past and present and thank them for sharing their knowledge of the land with us.
