The Cheeky Fox Retreat and it’s surroundings are so aesthetically pleasing, that pictured absolutely cannot do it justice! The house itself is so grand and stunning you feel as though you’re staying in a life size dolls house. It has the benefits of being a modern building, so it’s cosy and insulated, but with the interiors which make you feel like your stepping back in time. I only stayed for two days and one night and I felt so refreshed and revitalised as though I had been away for a week. Cannot recommend enough! You can tell Linda and Jason have put a lot of love in to the home, and they are absolutely lovely also, which always adds to your experience! They even took the time to show us where the Roos were!

We love this place! It's our second year returning to Cheeky Fox for another fabulously successful trip. Absolutely ideal venue for a group getaway.

Absolutely perfect place for a holiday with a large group. This was our third time staying at Cheeky Fox Retreat but first over summer. Such good fun in the pool and both adults and kids had plenty to do (including a movie in the cinema). We also spent a day at wineries in the nearby Yarra Valley and had a nice meal at the local pub. Jason and Linda (and their dog Fitz) were great hosts and have thought of everything to make the holiday as relaxing as possible.

About us

Cheeky Fox Retreat offers a relaxing getaway for large groups of up to 10 adults.  Situated on 50 private acres with spectacular mountain views, the property is perfect for a relaxing weekend away with family & friends, a business meeting, planning session, or as a space for artists to work including craft groups and musicians.

The Retreat is a large six-bedroom home, with queen and single beds in five of the rooms and a king size bed in the master bedroom.  There are three full bathrooms, a well-equipped kitchen and large open-plan living space, a formal dining room/boardroom with seating for 12, library, private cinema and a solar-heated swimming pool.

A sun-drenched veranda wraps around the entire house offering views of the ranges to the east and garden views to the west.  The house grounds are surrounded by paddocks with some 30 sheep and there is also about 12 acres of bush on the property, with over 2 kilometres of tracks to explore.

Located an hour from Melbourne and just 20 minutes to the Yarra Valley wineries, the Kinglake Ranges offers a wide variety of attractions and activities including the Kinglake National Park with walking tracks, BBQ facilities and impressive waterfalls.  

There are a number of playgrounds for the kids including Bollygum Park located in the heart of Kinglake and conveniently located right next to the historic Kinglake Pub!  For the more adventurous, there's Victoria's premier downhill mountain bike facility just around the corner and Kinglake Forest Adventures offers tree & biking experiences.  

For guests planning to visit the Yarra Valley wineries, we offer private wine tours directly from the property.  We also offer in-house wine & whisky tastings, private chef in-house dining and workshop/activity options such as yoga, massage and cooking classes.  Ask us for details when enquiring.
