The Chair Maker's House

Your Cabin Away from Home!

Through a serendipitous twist of fate, Flop House is now managing new, luxurious lodgings in Kyneton. The Chair Maker's House was formerly owned by Glen & Lisa Rundell of Rundell & Rundell fame. Glen is a world recognised Chair Maker and, together with Lisa has helped to revive the "Lost Trades" in Australia, establishing the Lost Trades Fair in 2014, bringing together artisans and crafts people from around Australia. 

The Chair Maker's House was purchased recently by a lady that has attended two of Glen's workshops and fell in love with Kyneton and surrounds. Flop House will manage the cabin on her behalf.  We will continue to provide a unique hosting service and offer our own brand of niceties, including beautiful textiles, local produce and furnishings.  

The Chair Maker's House is located on Powlett Street, off Piper Street and near to the Kyneton Museum. The cottage has exceptional bones, having been lovingly restored in a Shaker style by the Rundell's. To this already shapely set, Flop House has brought in our eye for detail and created a restful two bedroom retreat in  the heart of town.

Incorporating Pendleton textiles from North America,  Aura bed linen, vintage European furniture courtesy of Grandfather' Axe and paintings by local artist, John Lloyd, we set the scene for a magnificent rest. You will find plenty of familiar touches to make you feel at home.

Flop House offers all of our guest's a tailored guide to Kyneton and a menu that includes a range of "in-house" meals, picnics and bikes for hire. 

Looking forward to welcoming you there soon!
