the ranges escapes story
Short-stays and property management in the Ranges
Just an hour’s drive from Melbourne, the Macedon Ranges is an increasingly popular destination for short-term getaways, the demand for regional accommodation being driven by guests who are keen to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
Ranges Escapes was established by Jen Clark and Kirstie Innes-Will, who made a treechange from Melbourne’s vibrant inner north to beautiful Woodend in December 2018, not long after their son Max was born.
Jen and Kirstie acquired their first house as a vacant property, and furnished, styled and equipped it for short-term stays. The Fox House went from unlisted to the number one ranking property from the 73 available properties in Kyneton - all within just 10 months.
