Affordable, secluded, accommodation for families, groups, and couples in the Howqua Valley, backing onto the Great Dividing Range, next to Lake Eildon. Our outdoor facilities include a tennis court with basketball rings, outdoor pool, giant garden chess, campfire, and a spring free trampoline.


Four two bedroom and one three bedroom fully self contained cottages nestled in a bush setting of majestic gums and native trees. The cottages are in close proximity to the recreation areas allowing families and children easy access to the various activities the property has to offer. 


Three fully self contained one bedroom chalets, designed as romantic retreats for couples are situated higher on the property, separate from the cottage accommodation to provide seclusion, but not too far from the activities available on site. 


The Black Sparrow is a leisurely 2.5 hour drive from Melbourne and offers stunning views of Lake Eildon with close proximity to the townships of Mansfield and Jamieson. It is 40 minutes drive from the base of the Mt Buller and Mt Stirling, providing quality off-mountain accommodation.


It's a great accommodation location for people who wish to visit or experience adventure in the area, any time of the year. In the warmer months guests interested in water sport activities can enjoy staying at a unique property while fishing, water skiing or boating on Lake Eildon. Whether you're skiing in winter, or hiking, biking, or four wheel driving the trails in summer, it's a great base. If you want to just escape and rejuvenate, there is no need to leave the property at all.


Each cabin is beautifully presented with a well equipped kitchen, bathroom, spacious living, and private outdoor deck with BBQ. With 50 acres to spread out on, and the limited number of cabins, there is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy.


In addition to the accommodation there is a boutique function centre for private functions and small wedding parties.
