A generous sized studio in a quiet bush setting. We enjoyed being surrounded by gum trees and being close to Castlemaine - a great combination.

The Mudhouse is perfect for a relaxing weekend break in the country. Communication with Yvette and Athena was great, and the fresh croissants was a lovely touch. Would love to come back!

A gorgeous space, beautiful setting, perfect for a bush getaway. The hosts had the fire going ahead of our arrival as well as fresh croissants to bake the following morning. Will definitely return. Thankyou

My partner and I had a lovely romantic weekend away at the Mudhouse! Such a beautiful location, located conveniently close to the bustling Castlemaine and within half an hours drive of Hepburn springs if you're interested in a Spa getaway. The Mudhouse is cosy and feels incredibly private, despite being in close proximity to the Hosts house. This comes in handy if you need any help throughout your stay and Yvette and Athena go out of their way to make you feel at home. We were left detailed instructions for the house and offered suggestions on things to do around town. We can't wait to come back and stay at the Mudhouse!
