When you want a home - not a room

All direct bookings receive a complimentary bottle of wine. Will vary depending on local supply.

YARINGA LODGE, a country guest house

Yaringa Lodge is nestled in the bush of the Mornington Peninsula Hinterland and set on 11 acres of rolling gardens and pasture. The property is bound by Arthurs Seat State Park and becomes your base from which to explore bushwalks, wine tasting, restaurants, galleries and farm gate produce. When you choose Yaringa Lodge as your retreat, the entire house is yours to enjoy. No other booking will interrupt your privacy.

Home away from home - not just a room

Yaringa Lodge offers an entire house in which to relax with complete privacy. The master bedroom includes an ensuite bathroom just down the hallway from a reading retreat, lounge / TV sitting area and a fully fitted kitchen.

Explore the gardens

While Yaringa Lodge is opposite the Arthurs Seat State Park with kilometres of walking trails, you are also welcome to enjoy the gardens surrounding the residence. Explore the orchard and sample seasonal produce; watch the birdlife and listen for kookaburras, eastern spine bills, rosellas, parrots, wrens, magpies and wattle birds; wander the paddocks of native and exotic plants, established trees and our more recent projects.

Full Kitchen at your fingertips

If “staying in” is your preference, the kitchen is well equipped for cooking at home. Oven, induction cooktop, full-size refrigerator and the usual utensils, platters, pots and pans are at your disposal. Or, you can just microwave your local take-away.

Master Bedroom Suite

You'll enjoy the best sleep of your life in a king bed with double pillow top mattress, pillow options and luxurious linen.

Ensuite to the master bedroom

The master bedroom has an ensuite which includes toilet, heated towel rails, heat lamps and for that real country feel, a shower with rain shower head – and rain water!

Yaringa Lodge - 1 Bedroom or 2 Bedroom Options

Yaringa Lodge has been recently renovated to create a comfortable light-filled space with all the amenities you would expect: coffee machine, gas-log fire, central air-conditioning and heating, USB charging outlets, choice of pillows and a private entrance.
