WillOaks Boutique Accommodation
Located at the gateway to North East Victoria’s King Valley and close to the Milawa Gourmet Region, WillOaks Boutique Accommodation offers quality secluded ensuite accommodation with a beautiful vista of Mount Buffalo. Situated on the farming property of Peter and Lexie Rickards, two guest rooms are set in established gardens that surround the 1920’s homestead.
Choose to stay in either the Spa or Garden Room, which are built around the original features of a small hut in which Peter slept as a boy. Both guest rooms are tastefully decorated in warm tones and textures, with natural timber finishes and elegant colour palettes of green or blue complementing the rural landscape outside. Windows overlook the pond scattered with water lilies, the small vineyard or the surrounding paddocks where Angus cattle roam.
Gourmet breakfasts of local produce are served on the wisteria-draped verandah during warmer months or by the roaring open fire on cool mornings. Breakfasts of homemade muesli, fresh fruit compote and eggs Benedict (or Florentine) are some of the delights on offer; all complemented with freshly brewed coffee and tea, and friendly, albeit inconspicuous service.
Sample the region’s excellent array of food and wine establishments, including Brown Brother’s Winery and Epicurian Centre, Pizzini Wines cellar door, Chrismont’s elevated restaurant and tasting room, the Milawa Cheese Factory, Milawa Mustards, King River Café and many more. WillOaks is located only fifteen minutes from the rural city of Wangaratta and is ideally situated for day trips to historic Beechworth, Glenrowan and Rutherglen wine regions, Paradise Falls, Powers Lookout, the picturesque town of Bright and the snowfields of Mounts Buffalo, Buller and Hotham.
