Located an easy two hour drive north of Melbourne, Kath's Cottage is a charmingly restored miners' cottage, in which the original features still tell the story of home well lived in and loved.
For over 150 years Kath's Cottage has watched the progress of the local area and withstood the weather, wear and tear of the environment and people around it.
This historic brick building is Carisbrook's second oldest home and was built for a pioneering family back in 1870.
The cottage is fully self-contained and comfortably accommodating up to 6 guests with 2 queen beds and 2 king single beds.
The cosy lounge room features comfy leather reclining rocking chairs, a large screen TV, and gas heating to really make your stay as relaxed as possible.
There is a completely new and spacious bathroom/laundry, as well as a beautifully renovated kitchen with gas cooktop, oven, fridge/freezer, microwave and split system heat/cool.
Relax on sunny mornings in the light-filled sunroom/dining area that leads into a truly delightful country garden and lawn area.
The cottage is also within walking distance to general store, a great café and popular local hotel where you can enjoy a meal and a quiet drink. It’s also only 10 minutes into Maryborough for further shopping and eating options.

Dating back to the gold rush era, Carisbrook was founded by the Simson brothers who began collecting tolls from diggers travelling between gold fields in the early 1850s.
The town’s collection of heritage buildings, such as the 1852 police lock up (log jail), are a delight to discover, as are the surrounding natural environments, including the Tullaroop Creek nature trail and Carisbrook Archeological Site. Fun Fact: Kath's father was the last police man to be stationed in Carisbrook and the police station is just around the corner from cottage (now a private home).
