The Beet Retreat is a very special experience, unique to the Yarra Valley.
An in-house B&B with all the warmth and welcome you would hope for, tempered with the privacy you need.
Cuddles with the friendly resident animals or wildlife watch from the balcony or comfort of your bed after a day exploring the wineries or trails.
A beautiful breakfast is included in the room rate and vibrant, home-cooked plant based dinners are also available by prior arrangement.
This is a healthy happy living space :)
No drugs or smoking or excessive drinking.
Please respect and embrace the joy of discovering a plant based experience here :) this is a Vegan home and i would ask that no animal derived produce be brought into it.
I have had nothing but great feedback on meals from all manner of guests. I can accommodate dietary needs like GF ETC :-)
There are 3 friendly cats here who live both inside and outside according to their wishes..a quiet and friendly dog and 2 horses. :-)
If you're allergic to cats or grasses it may not be suitable for you :)
I love my beautiful property and am delighted to share it with you!
After a 33 year professional career, I took off backpacking around the world, in 2013 exploring off the track places and trail running in many incredible locations. I had an epiphany and came home and started running the BnB...then morphed into a REAL B&B! The Beet Retreat! Its such fun!
I stayed in a number of Air BnB homes as I travelled and absolutely loved it! I think my home and property has so much to offer for locals and international travellers alike.
I love the road less travelled. I embrace fresh air, wild places and open spaces, mountains and sea... down to earth and passionate people who care deeply about our world and all in it.
I am an adventurist at heart and my favourite sports are trail running (just started ultra running) and Adventure racing with all its related activities. Strength training, Yoga and Pilates are also on my "menu". :-)
I love to get outside and be active but I also love stimulating conversations about things that matter.
I prefer the quiet life most the time and read and potter about the farm here if not training, racing or doing volunteer work for animal rights groups.
I love music and reading and creating incredible plant based meals...you don't have to be vegan to enjoy them. HONEST :-)
Thank you for considering my home as your escape. Speak soon
