Castlemaine Boutique Accommodation presents Forest View.

Forest View House is a truly magnificent and one-of-a-kind property that more than lives up to the romantic imagery of its name. Nestled amongst lush and green gardens that look like they belong in a fairy tale, this house is the perfect destination to refresh your mind, body, and soul. 

Enjoy the splendor of Victoria’s unique flora and fauna on your literal doorstep (we highly recommend a picnic in our expansive gardens and a stroll to the mesmerizing Forest Creek) or sit back on one of the generous sun-drenched balconies and watch the birds and time fly by. If indoors is more your style, curl up and enjoy the comforts of this luxurious home complete with gas log fires, a beautifully large bathtub, and a captivating reading room.

The light-filled and open-plan kitchen and living area are surrounded by gorgeous views and greenery while providing the perfect space to catch up with friends and family. The beautifully restored kitchen has all the charms of a historic house, but with the bonus of modern luxuries such as our state-of-the-art of Falcon Cooker. Open up the balcony door and you have the perfect space for a BBQ for the ages. The comfortable lounging area is decked out with comfortable couches, a smart TV, free wi-fi, board games, and more to make this your home away from home during your stay. 

Despite sleeping amongst an oasis of natural splendor, Forest View House is only a short walk away from the allures of central Castlemaine and with complimentary on-site parking, you can explore everything this region has to offer.

Family Wedding 4 day weekend

Karen(Melbourne ) Whole house stayed on 24th November to 28th November 2022
Immaculately presented, a great space for 8-10 people. Excellent location. Attentive and responsive owners. Lovely outlook. This place was a joy to stay in. Agree with all the previous reviewer said about bedrooms and amenities. Thank you for a wonderful 4 days.

Love love love Forest View

Sue(Emerald Vic) Group stayed on 14-16 oct 22
After booking in both 2020 & 2021 (Covid cancellations) we finally made it. It was well and truly worth the wait. We were worried about the creek flooding and electricity supply to town being switched off the night before but we’re reassured by Kate that all was good. Everything possibly needed was in the house. Beds were split into singles to accomodate our group. Bathrooms well appointed with toiletries and plenty of fluffy towels. Had a great time exploring the shops and vintage Mill market. Lots to see and had great Saturday night meal at the Bridge Hotel. Would definitely recommend

Top spot for groups

Kim (Mid North Coast NSW) Group stayed on 23-25 Sept 2022
Fabulous place with oodles of spaces and everything you could need. Close to everything but private and comfortable and stylish. Highly recommended!

Perfect for a group

Anon(Melbourne) Group stayed on 2022-07
Our weekend stay was wonderful! All 10 of us felt very comfortable in the generous sized rooms, comfortable beds and two living areas. Would highly recommend!

Ms

Linda(Forest View) FamilyWithOlderChildren stayed on 2022-06
Great property. Spotlessly clean with every possible inclusion. A family of three adults and three kids found it warm, comfortable and convenient, with a generous splash of luxury.

Beautiful, comfortable house

Caron(Australia) Other stayed on 2021-12
We stayed for 2 nights with a group of 10 friends (5 couples). The house was perfect for us, with 5 bedrooms, and plenty of space in the large kitchen/dining/lounge area to all hang out together. Beautifully appointed and had everything we needed for a lovely weekend away. Well positioned with a short walk into Castlemaine and an easy drive to the surrounding towns. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review for us Caron. We hope to have you stay with us again soon!

Ideal spot & beautiful house

Chloe Hynes(Melbourne ) FamilyWithYoungChildren stayed on 2021-07
Loved this spot - we will be back! Great location to walk into Castlemaine town, kids loved the BMX pump track nearby too. Beautiful home and well appointed with everything you need. Perfect for 2 Couples with 4 kids. Thanks

Forest View

Peter Grinter (Forest View ) NotSpecified stayed on 2020-02
Having had a wedding we found the property ideal for our whole family. Everything was neat and tidy and very spacious for our needs.

beyond our expectations

kristy(melbourne) Group stayed on 2020-01
I booked this house along with a few of the other properties managed by Donna and Rod. The whole family were excellent to deal with and the houses were absolutely perfect. We booked them as a group so we could have a combined New Years Eve party for my 40th Birthday and we wanted somewhere we could all stay with the family and we could not have been happier. The houses are very well appointed and Rod was very attentive to ensuring the pool was perfect. We were able to have such a fun night all whilst knowing we had our kids nearby. We will definitely be back.

Great House

Kalliroy Edlin() FamilyWithYoungChildren stayed on 2020-01
We stayed over Christmas with 3 families with small children the house was perfectly suited to us and we loved that we had access to the pool without it being directly outside our window. The location and gardens were gorgeous and the evaporative cooling worked really well during our hot stay. Would definitely stay here again!

Home away from Home

Heather(Castlemaine) FamilyWithYoungChildren stayed on 2019-12
We stayed for the weekend for my daughter's wedding. The accommodation is beautifully presented and Donna very welcoming and extremely helpful after a mix up in the booking which was addressed immediately. My extended family enjoyed their stay in this gorgeously appointed home away from home and would love to stay again.

Ms

Yvonne Rice(St Leonards) Group stayed on 2019-11
Loved this house was perfect for our party of 5, friends on a girls weekend. Good sized bedrooms, kitchen brilliant, stunning dining table, great lounges, outdoor areas looked great it was a pity the weather was suitable to make the most of the space outside., 3 bathrooms,(would have liked to see a hairdryer in each bathroom. Amazing hallway, just keeps going! Hope to book this place again for another girls weekend next year!

Fantastic accommodation which was beautifully presented and was perfect for a group of four couples. Wish we could have stayed longer than the two nights we had there!

Amazing house in stunning town

Thomas(Melbourne) Group stayed on 2019-03

Anniversary Weekend

Paul Girt(Seaford 3198) MatureCouple stayed on 2018-12
We were 4 mature age couples 3 of which were celebrating wedding anniversaries.We were pleasantly surprised when we entered Forest View,really good size bedrooms,plenty of relaxing space,the kitchen area was the best equipped,the fittings were of excellent quality and plenty of pots and pans etc.The location was great,only a short walk to the Town and the Station. If we ever venture back to Castlemaine we certainly would stay here again without hesitation

Mrs

Jan(Healesville) Group stayed on 2018-10
Stayed for 2 nights with a group of 10 of us. The house was really lovely with a beautiful garden and bush at the back. Loved the long dining table and 2 balconies which we used for afternoon drinks and breakfast. Is in a perfect location with the shops only a short walk away. We all really enjoyed our stay here.

Everything as expected

Alison & Reece() FamilyWithYoungChildren stayed on 2018-10
Three generations of our family were easily accommodated for the weekend and the location was so convenient for us. Always good to find everything expected, clean and good quality. The true measure is response to a problem, the toaster tripped the circuit breaker during breakfast. Within 10 minutes of calling the guys came to check out, confirmed toaster to blame so took it away to return in minutes with a new one. Excellent property & managment team. Thanks

Jess from Airbnb

Jess() NotSpecified stayed on 2017-11
Donna’s place is spacious, very clean and beautiful decorated with lovely personal touches that made it feel like a home away from home. It easily accommodated 11 people very comfortably. The amenities were modern and convenient, and the location was perfect for a weekend of exploring Castlemaine - just a short walk to the centre of town. Donna was very accommodating and quick to respond to any questions or exchanges in the lead up to our stay. This is fantastic find.
