From the road, The Kilns two old tobacco kilns and a large concrete shed are architectural sensations that capture the best of the Ovens Valley.

Cavedon's and Chinamen's Kilnhouse are at once simple, sophisticated, contemporary and luxurious. Utilising the original kilns built on the farm, each house boasts soaring ceilings in the lounge areas, floor to ceiling windows, polished concrete floors and contemporary fittings.

The Kilns sit in paddocks that are part of a working Angus stud (Alpine Angus) and overlook 15 acres of grapevines, with outstanding views of Mount Buffalo.

The Sorting Shed is the new jewel in the crown. Impressive in both size and ultimate luxury, this two storey design even has its own sauna!

At the Kilns your every whim is catered for, whether it is wood fires, heated floors and a drying cabinet for ski gear in winter, or ceiling fans and air conditioning in summer. For the foodies, kitchens are stocked with the best brands in gadgets, crockery and cutlery and gourmet tea and coffee awaits your arrival. There are complimentary Chapelli Commuter bikes in the garage for the active types; games, DVDs and gorgeous magazines for those who want to chill out; and wireless for those who still need to keep in touch.

Stunning yet simple furniture are found in each house and artworks add to the modern and fresh feel. Aseop beauty products, King size beds and beautiful linen ensure a comfortable stay. Outdoor living spaces enjoy brilliant views of the farm and neighbouring mountains.

During your stay, an on-site manager will assist you so that your trip is a memorable one. Check availability on the real-time booking calendar via the website or call the Kilns to book if you prefer.
