Please note we are now not accepting one night bookings except at our one bedroom lodging, Wormwood Studio. Thank you!

Flop House was established in 2013 to welcome visitors to the Macedon Ranges and central Victorian goldfields region with an offering of good design and access to local produce. Inspired by our surrounds, we provide guests with guides, bikes to tour the town, locally made preserves and discounts for participating in local workshops.

With a love for good linen, textiles and chic Scandinavian design we ensure that each Flop House breathes an air of simply luxury and refined living. This is extended to our boutique store on Piper Street, Upstairs, selling European vintage furniture sourced by our friends at Grandfather’s Axe, tried and true Pendleton Woollen Mills blankets and locally made Aspar hair and body products.


Since humble beginnings with a single guesthouse, Harpsichord House, Flop House now manages a guest house in Maldon and four guesthouses in Kyneton, sleeping a total of eighteen guests. All within a short distance of each other, Flop House can provide boutique accommodation for weddings and other events in the Daylesford, Macedon Ranges region. A fifth luxury guesthouse in Lauriston (just outside of Kyneton) opened in April, expanding our roots in the region. At River House we are now offering wellness retreats through a partnership with local business, Maiaveda Holistic Day Spa. 

“The feel of these lodgings is distinctly Scandinavian and invites quiet introspection. There are beautiful books to pore over, local, artisan-produced furniture to loll in and, everywhere, the space, light and level of comfort you need to unwind, commune with nature and live on a very uncomplicated level. Kyneton is a good base from which to explore the region..”
