Mcananly Homestead is a guesthouse, situated in Beechworth's beautiful hinterland. It is set in 82 acres of natural bushland and as you enter the property you'll be surrounded by towering Blue Gums, Stringy Barks and Peppermints. The house sits proudly on top of the hill waiting for you to explore its charm. If you've been looking for a place to really unwind with your family or friends but want the option of things to do, then you've found it. Mcananly is only 30 minutes from Albury-Wodonga and Wangaratta so it's easy to have a special night away with a few friends or family members without driving for hours to get there. Being only 3 hours from Melbourne, Mcananly Homestead makes for a great Girl's Week-end away: a Winery Walkabout: a Family Reunion: or a bush walking, cycling, photograhy or off road adventure with a group of your best mates. Whatever your looking for, email us and we'll give you a little piece of heaven that won't cost you the earth.
Don't forget to bring your slippers, as the beautiful timber floors can be a bit chilly!!

Guests are also encouraged to save water by having short showers and using the half flush button on the toilets. All shower and laundry water is diverted into a grey water tank which is diverted back into the toilet system or garden dripper system. A large roof area allows us to catch 12,500 litres of water for every inch of rain and the overflow empties into another tank specifically set aside for the garden when grey water is low.
The garden is heavily mulched, cutting down on the need for constant watering and the lawn is a fescue 'Arid' variety which requires very little watering during summer.
Much of the homestead's building materials have been recycled including windows, roofing and dado boards.
Guests are encouraged to put their food scraps in the compost bucket and put recyclables in the bin provided on the veranda. We compost all lawn and garden clippings as well. We are looking forward to starting the veggie garden very shortly.
