Located on a two acre site, "The "Old School Bed & Breakfast" is an ideal location for the "let's get away from it all" stay providing guests peace and serenity. Guests have total occupancy of the old school building and therefore enjoy complete privacy.

About Us

We moved to Fernbank, in 1999, from the city as East Gippsland was a favourite holiday spot for us. When we saw the lovely old building in need of TLC and the 3 huge 100 year old Oak trees we knew we had found our niche in the world. The School is totally self contained and separate from our cottage for your total privacy - though we are always happy to have a chat. We look forward to welcoming you to our little piece of heaven for your stay with us and hope you have a pleasant and relaxing time in our rustic surroundings. The Old School Bed & Breakfast is a pet friendly environment as long as we know in advance that your four legged family members will be staying with us. The BBQ area is fenced and has a secure gate. Outside of that area your dog will need to be on a leash as the chickens are free range and our neighbours have sheep and cattle. Please let us know in advance if you have any special requests or requirements.

Our Facilities Include

  • queen size four poster bed
  • stereo/CD unit
  • LCD television with Blu Ray/DVD player

Nestling beside three magnificent Oak trees, this marvellous old building closed as a school in 1972 and remained vacant for many years.
Since March 2000 we started very carefully providing this 1908 building with a new lease of life whilst maintaining its Victorian era architecture and character.
This restoration took us six months. We are still working on the gardens that have plenty of native trees attracting a wide range of bird life.
 

Dog Friendly

With prior arrangement your dog can stay with you. The BBQ area is fenced and has a secure gate. Outside of that area your dog will need to be on a lead as the chickens free range and our neighbours have sheep and cattle.
