The Kilns is a totally unique house for exclusive rental that has been designed in the style of a contemporary boutique hotel that captures the features of Oven's Valley in North East Victoria. The Kilns is on the Great Alpine Road near Porepunkah, 11km from Bright and it sits in the middle of a paddock on a working angus stud. Mt Buffalo looms beyond the grapevines as the spectacular backdrop. The kilns are 2 luxurious spaces lined with washed grey pine to complement the beautiful polished concrete floor in the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. In the Winter months there is the cosy heat from the wood fire and a drying cabinet for ski gear and for the Summer there are ceiling fans and air-conditioning if needed. The furniture throughout is cool and comfortable and the views really are some of the best in the North East. This really is a stunning chic retreat to escape from the cares of the world or if you fancy yourself as an author this is the perfect writers retreat - as you will have the place all to yourself!


The North East is famous for wine, food, walking, sking, bike riding, hiking, enjoying the great outdoors, living & eating well.
