Ridgeview is the perfect place for families to unwind in the natural surrounds of Bright.

The heart of Victoria’s Alpine High Country has welcomed Big Sky Retreats to the region, and with it a new boutique stay called Big Sky Ridgeview in the mountainous town of Bright. Encouraging longer stays and a retreat to nature without sacrificing life’s little luxuries, Ridgeview is the newest group getaway spot for families and friends to enjoy year-round.

Only three-and-a-half hours' drive north-east of Melbourne, the large, contemporary lodge is set on just over an acre of private property, providing a secluded, restful environment that exudes familial peace and relaxation. A rare jewel in the Bright region and unique in its ability to provide a truly lavish family escape, Ridgeview is a beautifully styled slice of sophistication.

Taking inspiration from the American-style lodges within the small town of Big Sky, Montana, Founder Paul Absalom, sought to recreate and share this much-loved aesthetic with likeminded Australian families and travellers.

“Combining our long-held love for the vibrant community of Bright and the architectural wonders and designs we have come across abroad, we’re delighted to be bringing Ridgeview to this beautiful part of Victoria. From the region’s amazing outdoor activities, to the brilliant food and wine scene and four distinct seasons, we wanted to create a home that is an experience in itself,” says Paul Absalom.

“With multiple areas to relax in and plenty of room for families and friends to come together, we can’t wait for others to experience and fall in love with this place too.”

Offering four spacious, beautifully styled bedrooms, Ridgeview is the perfect destination for two families or big groups of eight, and comes complete with an outdoor pool made from an upcycled shipping container, a steam room, BBQ, laundry, quality linen and luxury grown alchemist amenities.

Soak up the spectacular view of the mountains with your kangaroo neighbours, enjoy a dip in the pool or curl up in front of an open fire, no matter the season Ridgeview aims to create lasting memories.

With direct access to cycling paths, adventure running, and a dedicated fitness zone Ridgeview will prove popular for even the most athletic and intrepid families.

Capitalising on Bright’s enviable local produce, Ridgeview comes with a fully equipped kitchen, wine fridge, drinks preparation space and multiple indoor and outdoor dining and lounge spaces.

Guests can go one step further during their stay with Ridgeview’s range of tailored local experiences, including personal workouts and yoga sessions, in-house chefs and retreat massages.

Reinventing the family holiday with luxurious, spacious interiors and a surpassing attention to detail within Bright’s majestic hinterland, Ridgeview is a true escape for families from the everyday and one of four boutique luxury lodges set to be built into the Big Sky Retreats portfolio this year.

With plans to significantly expand its network of premium and unique accommodation options, Big Sky Retreats will introduce river fronted properties River Run and Bridgewater to the market in early 2020.
