Mitchell House, Lexton
Enjoy the Victorian Pyrenees Mountain views and Australian farm life while staying at Mitchell House. This neat and functional home provides relaxed accommodation in a breath taking setting.
Mitchell House is ideally positioned between the historical city of Ballarat (30 minutes) and the magical Pyrenees wine district. Located only 90 minutes from Melbourne, suggests a perfect weekend country retreat.
Immerse yourself in the significant heritage property of Mt Mitchell (1838). Explore the 10 acres of beautiful and productive gardens; walk through the paddocks to explore the property’s lake and winding creeks and engage in some of the farming activities.
Mitchell House is ideal for families keen to experience country life or groups of friends keen to escape the rat race. Guests can request complete privacy or be included in busy farm action. Collect your own eggs, catch a yabby, harvest some fresh vegetables from the impressive kitchen garden and pick fruit off the trees in the orchard.
Base yourself at Mt Mitchell while touring the regional sites. Fabulous tourism opportunities in Ballarat (Sovereign Hill, MADE, Ballarat Art Gallery), the popular Talbot Farmers Market and award winning Pyrenees wineries (Dalwhinnie, Taltarni, Blue Pyrenees, Mt Avoca) are all highly recommended.
A range of hampers of beautiful local produce and any provisions are available on request.
