Nestled snugly within rolling granite hills, with breathtaking views of the Sedgwick ranges, lies “MillDuck”, a secluded, StrawBale retreat. It’s central to Maldon, Castlemaine & Bendigo, yet less than 90 minutes from Melbourne. Two fully self contained units give total privacy & independence – Use the provisions to cook your own breakfast – just the way you like it! Watch the flames from your double spa, amble to the lookout or relax on the hammocks with a good book. Discerning guests will appreciate the thick walls, quality finish & peaceful, cosy atmosphere, along with the old world, rustic charm spread throughout this 35 acre alpaca stud. Not surprisingly, it has won a few awards over the past years, including being named in the Top Ten B&Bs in Victoria – (Sunday Age) & one of the “Favourite Mid-Priced Couples Retreats” (Family Circle). You’ll want to linger longer here, taking advantage of the late noon check out. “MillDuck StrawBale B&B” is “Far from the Madding Crowd”. Take a Strawbale house tour & get tips on passive solar design. View an alpaca birth or picnic in the paddock with them. See Trip Advisor reviews.

    Very clean and very comfortable in stunning rural setting. Lovely gardens. Helpful owners. Would happily visit again. Friendly alpacas too!

    My husband and I received a voucher for our wedding to stay at MillDuck, and what an incredible experience it was. We were free to roam the property and spend time with the alpacas, (who we couldn’t get enough of!) and the gardens were superb. You can see how much work and love has gone into the property and we only wish we could have stayed longer! Highly recommend.

    We stayed here over the grand final weekend. It’s an absolute fantastic place to stay, I chose it hoping for a serene place with a great view. This has it times a thousand. It could be a million kilometres from anywhere, almost no noise. Sunrises were beautiful, the garden is fabulous. The owners were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. All boxes ticked. Hope to return one day.

    My partner and I have stayed at this wonderful place twice and it’s by far one of the best B&B experiences we’ve had and we’ve had a few .
    Nothing can be better than the beautiful scenery, the peace and quiet and the wonderful friendly owners.
    We’ll be going back it’s that good!!!

    A lovely place to stay. We received a warm welcome and introduction to our accommodation. There a well stocked pantry and refrigerator for a range of breakfast food. The queen size bed is very comfortable and there is well appointed, top quality fixtures and furnishings. The hosts are on hand if needed but otherwise not intrusive. Views are wonderful, the garden is magical with many walking opportunities if so desired.
