The Blue House B&B Accommodation
The Blue House is the perfect place to rest, relax and rejuvenate. It is surrounded by some of the most beautiful vistas in the Grampians with views of Mt Cole, Mt Buangor and Mt Langi Ghiran just outside the front door.
Located at Mountainside Wines, a vineyard and winery at Warrak, 20 minutes east of Ararat, The Blue House started life as the local post office. It was transported to the property in the ‘90s and has been refurbished. It is a self-contained cottage with a queen bedroom, fully equipped kitchen and wood fire.
During your stay visitors to The Blue House can enjoy a vineyard and winery tour followed by a tasting of wines made at the winery on the property.
With its own entrance, The Blue House is secluded and quiet. As television and internet access is not available peace and serenity is assured.
Continental breakfast provisions are provided and information regarding local eateries is available. With prior notice a home cooked meal can be provided in the evening.

“Newer still is Mountainside Wines. To find this most personal of boutique wineries, you must seek it, huddled at the foot of Mt Cole in Warrak, far from any major roads.
Tastings and platters can be enjoyed at a table among the viognier vines, or on cushions and blankets thrown down anywhere on the property.
About a dozen steps from the cellar door, but totally hidden from it, is the Blue House, once the Warrak post office but now a secluded, self-contained, bed and breakfast.
It is a gorgeously quiet place to stay, so hidden that there is no phone or internet signal and no TV reception. As evening falls and mist settles in the valley, there is just the chatter of cockatoos and the distant bleat of sheep.
It is a rural idyll flavoured with tannins, perfect for a digital detox and a wine influx.”
