Eagles Nest Luxury Mountain Retreat.

IMG_20170925_210009_115As with an eagle’s nest, this log cabin is nestled high above the trees at an elevation of 600 meters.  It truly is a journey climbing the steep winding driveway to locate the quaint, intimate retreat.  While exploring the property it will quickly become apparent that one night is not enough to truly enjoy the offerings of Eagles Nest Luxury Mountain Retreat.

The Cabin

Built in 1980 from Douglas Fir logs, this one of a kind cabin is homely, warm and inviting.  With a view of the mountains from every window your itinerary need not be full, with gazing at the horizon being top of my activity list.  Exploring the compact yet spacious interior you will come across three double bedrooms on the top level.  All simply appointed to let the wooden panelling evoke images of mountains, snow and The Sound of Music (cue ‘The Hills are Alive’).  The shared bathroom is in keeping with the alpine style boasting a footed tub and pedestal basin.  The shower has room to dance and the attention to detail ensures you emerge exfoliated and smelling like a fresh summer’s day.


Walking into the open plan living area it is easy to see how nights could be lost chatting and enjoying the company of loved ones.  You must stop and collect some supplies on the way to Eagles Nest as this property is fit for a foodie.  Prepare a hearty meal in the well equipped kitchen and enjoy it around the large dining table.  Snack on local cheese and sip your favourite wine by the open fire or prepare pizza in the amazing pizza oven outside.


Note:  Food is not provided however BBQ and picnic packs can be organised on booking (click here for more information).

The Garden

Exploring the garden at Eagles Nest Luxury Mountain Retreat is a wondrous experience.  Not only is the view amazing from the outdoor spa but hike the hill behind the house and delight in what awaits.  A forest that is vast.  It’s beauty complex, reflecting the terror of a day that stole so much.  Like the human spirit it too is repairing and healing from fires that have carved a scar into the hearts of so many.


If you still yourself long enough you will hear the music of the bush, a melody that will refresh your soul.  Watch the dance of the fairy wren, breathe the crisp mountain air and allow yourself to experience the true beauty of Eagles Nest.

Located between Buxton, Marysville and Healesville this well-appointed luxury accommodation has all you need to enjoy every season.  Whether you need time to reconnect as a family, spend time with friends or find rest you need look no further than  Eagles Nest Luxury Mountain Retreat.

  1. The links you have put in for this property are not correct. You have, for some strange reason, linked them to a wikipedia entry about the Black Saturday fires!!! I think people want to know more about the retreat than about the fires. Please fix!

    1. Oh my goodness Rob!! Thank you for letting me know. WordPress can sometimes (not often) do some random things. I have fixed the links and changed it to the originally intended link. There is one link to the bush fires and that is for those who wanted to know more about the view.
      I now have to find a way of changing the font colour as WordPress has decided that it should stay black.
