Born from the need to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Annie's Escape in Warbuton is the perfect little guest house to make your retreat. Private, and with all you need including complete facilities for your use and a balcony that is dominated with glorious views of Mt Little Joe you can while away the days relaxing in peace, have a BBQ or be adventurous and take in the fresh mountain air along the walking tracks close by.

Walking to and from everything helps to slow down the pace and enjoy the bird life along the way. The Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail is only 200 mteres away and is perfect for bike riding or walking. Families can relax knowing that children are well catered to with a port-a-cot for infants, books, toys and videos of all the favourite classics. Playgrounds are within walking distant and feeding the ducks at the river is always a highlight, the ducks are well trained and always looking for a free feed of bread. Warburton is the hidden jewell of the Yarra Valley. Please note we don't have wifi. More
