Val Taylor 06/14/2014 New life is the watchword for this establishment and that applies to both the building and the experience on offer. Hosts Steve and Veronica are lively and fun, warm and welcoming. Very down-to-earth Northerners from UK, they are probably the last people you would expect to be the owners and operators of a mind, body and spiritual retreat. But, from the moment you arrive, you are made welcome and comfortable and nothing is too much trouble. They insist that you relax, unwind and enjoy the benefits on offer. Steve and Veronica have performed a miracle, breathing life into a grand old place that was on its last legs. Working from the bottom up, the buildings have all been restumped and made safe, rewired throughout and had new plumbing installed. Teams of workers, no doubt encouraged by Veronica with gallons of tea, have repaired, repainted, restored and retiled. They have hung new doors, replaced windows and removed countless skipfuls of old, rotting building materials. The newly restored and renovated rooms, all ensuite, are warm and inviting. The beds are new but all the other furniture has been tracked down at auctions and markets and lend an eclectic, old-world charm to the rooms. I particularly loved the beautiful art-deco peacock-glass doors at the entrance. From being on the verge of demolition the Continental Guesthouse has been painstakingly and lovingly restored to former glory. Originally built by a Russian mining magnate in the 1920s, its clientele was often wealthy, fun-loving Melbournites who visited the spa to "take the waters." Hepburn locals and papers of the day (discovered under the floorboards during the renovations) report tales of wild, extravagant parties happening at The Conti, as it was known around the town. The ghosts of glamorous flappers and flashy card-sharps linger around the lounge room. In later years, the guesthouse became accommodation for young Christian Brothers in training for their vocation, although I've a sneaking suspicion that parents with large broods often sent their sons there to receive food and education more than for their spiritual salvation. Another change of ownership saw the guesthouse become a vegan retreat - a haven for those seeking healthiness and hippyness in the restorative Victorian countryside. Continental House has come full circle and not only in its physical rebirth. All of its incarnations are now present in the current establishment. Fun and spirituality live side by side within the walls and around the extensive grounds. At the entrance, you pass through the massive hedge into another world and take a step back in time as the lovely old building greets you. Beneath a huge shady tree in the front garden, a seated Buddha conveys serenity and suggests there is much more to this place than simply accommodation. You are greeted by the vivacious Veronica and immediately made to feel like an old friend. The phrase, "mi casa su casa" springs to mind as she shows you to your room, then points out the comfortable lounge-room with its roaring log-fire, the sweet, sunny sitting area that reminds you of your Nana's house and various other pleasant areas where guests can relax in peace, both inside and out. More a retreat than a regular guesthouse, not only is physical comfort ensured, there is also much to cater to your health and wellbeing. On offer is yoga, massage, aromatherapy, meditation, reiki and, when Steve has built it, a Turkish hamam. Steve himself is a Reiki Master (always makes me think of a Jedi somehow!), Veronica, a life coach and Sarah, the assistant manager is the in-house yoga teacher. While group bookings for retreat are the main focus of this establishment, Steve and Veronica welcome casual bookings when they have vacancies. Try it. Try a stay at Continental House. Your mind, body and soul will love you for it and you will return refreshed, revived and happy to be alive to the world outside the big hedge!

September Timetable from Sep 01, 2014 02:05 AM to Sep 30, 2014 02:05 AM 9 Lone Pine Avenue Hepburn Springs,
With Spring just around the corner the days are getting longer and the frosts are becoming less. A shift in energy is emerging in the nature around us as well as the nature within us. The sun shines brighter, flowers begin to bloom, moods and emotions begin to lighten and energy levels increase! This is the time time we start to feel the urge to move and to wake up the body & mind after the sedentary winter months. The perfect time to get into some extra activities whether it be joining Nina on her educational workshop (If you are pregnant that is) taking on an extra yoga class or have a bit of fun while improving your singing voice with Colleen. We surely have something to tickle your fancy this month!
