A love affair.
Our love affair with Mt Bellevue bears a striking resemblance to our love affair with each other…love at first sight followed by actions that some would call impulsive! It was August 1988. We had a passionate, whirlwind romance and by November, Michelle (an American tourist) was calling Australia home!
Fast forward 29 years and we booked into Mt Bellevue (the Eyrie) for a family friend’s wedding at Chrismont Winery in March. Mt Bellevue and its stunning panoramas truly swept us off our feet! By August (what is it with August?) we had purchased the property and became the proprietors of a B & B, vignerons and cattle farmers! Our love of Mt Bellevue extends to include the beautiful King Valley.
Come visit and you will see for yourself exactly what we mean by love at first sight, but sorry, Mt Bellevue is definitely no longer for sale! We do however have some very comfortable options for your short or extended stay.
I grew up in Vermont, USA and moved to Melbourne in 1988. Australia is most definitely my home! I've also lived on the Gold Coast and am very excited to be having this next adventure at Mt Bellevue. I would describe myself as a country girl at heart, a clinical nutritionist by trade and a lover of nature always xx.
I was born, raised and lived in Melbourne until I met Michelle. Together we moved to Queensland then the USA and returned back to Australia just before our second child was born. I've had many rewarding careers, always running my own businesses but somewhere in the back of mind, was drawn to farming! Although I will be keeping my 'day job' and commuting to Melbourne for work, I am looking forward to immersing myself in this special place called Mt Bellevue.
