The Perfect 'Stay-In' Getaway in Gippsland


A 'back to nature' holiday was just what this family needed.

We are always honoured when we discover a wonderful article or post has been written about a stay with us.

Riparide’s Jaccob and Sunshine have a beautiful family of 5 from Melbourne and they came to visit us in Yarragon South to experience the joys of getting back to nature and the simplicity of country life.


With 3 gorgeous children ranging from 2-12 years old, they loved the space that both the home and property provided for everyone to spread out and enjoy the surroundings.

"With room enough for the whole extended family, The Ridge House feels like a real country home - with modern styling and extensive goodies available."

Exploring the gardens and bushland keeps young minds creating stories and games for hours.
The rolling hills and distant views can be enjoyed right from the deck, or a very short walk to Loggers Lookout is the best spot for an afternoon glass of wine.

They said a real highlight was the Green Hills Farm* visit. This makes us so happy to hear.

We took them on a guided tour of our farm which neighbours The Ridge House. The kids held our chooks, wandered through the veggie patch, and they learnt about the area and our regeneration of the property.

It really was a trip where they could unwind and take a big, slow breath of the country air. They took advantage of our board games, enjoyed our locally sourced cheeseboard and farm cooked dinner^, watched the sunrise over dewy rolling hills, and explored nature via our private walking trails and lookout around our 50-acre property.

What a delight to welcome them!
