The Beet Retreat is a warm and welcoming retreat and B&B for adult guests set on 20 rural acres in a tucked away pocket of the Yarra Valley.
The two guest bedrooms are beautifully spacious and feature full length windows to take in the uninterrupted views of rolling hills and classic Australian bushland that sweep toward the Kinglake Ranges.
You will feel part of the landscape whether relaxing on the deck outside your room or tucked cosily inside on a winters day.
The Beet Retreat is a place where you will quickly feel at home by a warm welcome and its peaceful energy. You are provided the space, time and ambience to truly rest, relax and unwind in a safe and authentic environment.
Here you can re-discover the forgotten joy that is living simply….. And simply living.
Leaving home routine and work demands behind, slip gently and peacefully into the rhythm of the natural world as you sink into the depth of a hammock or on the fragrantly sweet grass…
Lay back and be lost in the vast sky above with its scudding clouds or watch the changing light play across the hills and tree tops….
Sleep soundly nestled in the comfort of your spacious room with stars the only lights and frogs the only sound…..
Be reminded of the sanctity of the other beings we share our world with as you watch the family of Kangaroos go about their day, or the many species of birds busy themselves with the joy of flight or song….
Look deep into the eyes of the rescued animals here…. The horses, the three friendly cats and gentle old dog.
Share their space. See them. Hear them. We are all one.
Let time trickle by….
Wander the paddocks, discover the myriad trails, take a homemade picnic into the bush….
Still your mind, soften your body, rekindle your spirit.
Or you may wish to use The Beet Retreat as the tranquil base from which to launch an exploration of the regions many wineries and restaurants, scenic drives or the wonderfully quirky and down to earth St Andrews Market on a Saturday morning….
Many use the Retreat as a base when attending a wedding in nearby Yarra Glen…
The Beet Retreat will cater to your needs by simply being what it is…. an unpretentious, beautiful and calming space.
Enjoy a complimentary delicious and generous vegan, whole foods breakfast that will nourish your body and soul.
Other meals are also available for purchase by prior arrangement.
The Vegan Ethos:
Like entering the home of a trusted friend, The Beet Retreat aims to provide a feeling of comfort, a place to be renewed and nurtured.
You do not need to be Vegan or even Vegetarian to enjoy your time here, just be open hearted as we are.
Living Vegan is no mystery…. It’s simply living as though other beings matter morally. This ethos tends to imbue a feeling of warmth, lightness, peace and kindness in all who stay here.
There is no judgement or expectation here, you are welcomed.
No matter where you are on life’s journey, The Beet Retreat can provide a little something that adds to beauty of it.
And we can all do with more of that.
