The most popular comment in our guest book is 'Mount Evelyn Retreat is a little piece of paradise'.
Nestled in between the Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges yet only 50 minutes away from Melbourne CBD, Mount Evelyn Retreat makes the perfect rejuvinating getaway.
The Dandenong Ranges are ideal for visiting gardens, single track bike riding, bushwalking or simply pottering around the shops and cafes.
With its undulating hills the Yarra Valley makes a stunning backdrop for a leisurely drive exploring the area and finding country markets.
The region is well known for its wine and fine produce and there are many vinyards offering wine tasting, good fayre and stunning views.
What better way to enhance your stay than some pampering. The Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges offer some terrific options for massage and spa treatments for all budgets and preferences. You can even arrange to have a massage on the deck of the Retreat in the finer weather.
The Dandenong Ranges is a magical place and attracts healing therapists offering everything from naturapathy to sound therapy.
There are also many local options for yoga and meditation classes and there are two large meditation centres in Mount Evelyn and nearby Monbulk respectively.
Regretfully we have made the decision to close following the advice of the health authorities. This health and wellbeing of our guests is a priority.
Apologies for any future guests (you will all have received a personal email) and thank you to all of our past guests - I have met some wonderful people over the years and I feel so lucky to have created an environment of rest and retreat for so many people to experience.
