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.

The Keepers Cottage is designed for your relaxation and indulgence.

Sink into the beautiful couch in front of the open wood fire, or toss a soft rug across your knees if you prefer. fill you glass with a Yarra Valley wine you've brought with you - turn on the music, or choose your own from your own collection - TV, DVD, music system are all here too.

The open plan bedroom awaits with its king size 4 poster bed and the adjacent spa bath for two for your indulgence. There is a separate bathroom with a shower, toilet and vanity and of course gowns and slippers are supplied for your comfort.

There is heating in addition to the open fire, so you will be toasty warm.

There is a full kitchen, stove with oven and cooktop, microwave, full fridge, all the crockery, glassware, cutlery and pots and pans to cook up a delicious meal - or we can order you in an Antipasto Platter or some soup to heat up with Crusty bread for your arrival night.

Any unusual damage to the properties by guest (or their friends visiting), children and pets will be charged. Additional cleaning costs will be charged at $60 ph if we need to hire an extra housekeeper. Damages - especially those not reported - to linen, crockery, floors, furniture, building, burns from fire or candles will be charged at the rate it costs Candlelight Mountain Retreats management to have the damage repaired. We apologise for needing to add this clause, but 2 bad experiences have ruined our 21 years of generous goodwill.

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.
