Moulton Park is an original estate on the hilltop out of Sassafras.    The estate has 3 acres of gracious and special gardens, big pine trees, beautiful crocuses and treasures in spring - gorgeous.

On the property are two cottages, Keeper's Cottage being the largest, Gatehouse Cottage being the original gatehouse to the property.   There is also a very elegant homestead on the property which will later in 2016 be offered to discerning guests for a special stay.

A half court tennis court is yours to use.   You can walk to the village of Sassafras to enjoy coffee and boutique shops.  Sherbrooke Forest and the Burnham Beeches Estate are not far.

Choose to stay in one of the beautiful accommodation offerings with their open fires, spa baths and gorgeous gardens.

This sweet little cottage at the entrance to the estate is the original gatehouse for the property.

Set in a pretty garden with shady trees in summer, Gatehouse Cottage offers a very special place for one couple to snuggle up and enjoy being away together.

Walk along the little outdoor veranda from your car which is parked right near your cottage, through the door and into the dining room with its beautiful stained glass window and clear windows overlooking the garden. Then through to the loungeroom with its open wood burning fire, warm gas heating, comfortable couch for two, books, music, TV, DVD player - so everything you need to relax and unwind.

The bedroom offers a queen bed and adjacent to this is the spa room with a 2 person spa bath. Robes are provided and slippers of course.

A seperate bathroom gives you a toilet, shower and vanity, so plenty of privacy.

The kitchen has full stove with an oven and hotplates, a small fridge, crockery, glassware, cutlery and saucepans for your use.

Fire Season


Fortunately our beautiful villages of Mount Dandenong were not severely affected by the devastating fires of last summer AND this has been a year of extraordinary rain. Historically the villages of Olinda, Sassafras and Mount Dandenong have seldom been severely affected by bushfires. However, we need to remain vigilant to the possibility that, given extreme weather conditions, we could be exposed to danger.

To secure your safety we have adopted certain measures to ensure you can feel free to plan your stay with us at Candlelight Mountain Retreats.

COMMUNICATION: When you make your booking we have your telephone and mobile numbers and your email address. We shall be constantly monitoring the warning codes issued by the CFA during summer and in the event a threat is predicted that indicates extreme conditions occurring during the days you have chosen to stay, we shall advise you immediately.

PRE PAID BOOKINGS: At the time of booking you will have paid a deposit, or perhaps the entire fee for your stay. In the event you are prevented from staying with us on the days chosen, due to extreme weather conditions, we shall hold your pre-payment as a credit against your visit with us on a future occasion within the next 6 months. You will be supplied with a Coupon for this service.

Should your circumstances be such that you are unable to use your accommodation within the 6 month period, the amount of your pre-payment will be fully refunded (less a $75 cancellation fee to cover expenses).

In the event we are able to offer accommodation within the 6 month period, but you elect not to proceed with the booking, the amount of your deposit only will be retained.
