Words dont do justice for how above and beyond this place is. The Chapel turned out to be the best spot for what would be a family retreat, but even better for a group of mates who plan to hit up the mountain! Sleeping the many is no issue here at the Pin Oak Chapel. The upstairs holding with what we counted as a 'too good to be true' amount of beds. Not to mention the cozy double bedroom downstairs that makes it perfect for those noisy sleepers.

If the outdoor fire/BBQ area isnt the cherry on the cake, it would be the 5-Star hospitality you recieve consistently between from when you arrive right up until you leave. Whether itl be topping up firewood, providing fresh juice in the fridge or even if its just a friendly morning greeting you recieve before leaving for daily adventures, your treated like family here at the Pin Oak.

The journey off the bitumen proves really worthwhile when you arrive at Black Horse Park in its idyllic rural setting. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the various garden seats and swinging chairs add to the pleasure. Rob is an affable and very helpful host and Pin Oak Chapel has all the facilities necessary for your stay, with a distinctly Gallic flavour. The only potential drawback is that if your party is anywhere near the 10 maximum advertised you may struggle with the single bathroom although there is an additional lavatory. There is one double bedroom. All the other sleeping arrangements are in the single large upstairs room with a curtain as a divider.
We thoroughly enjoyed our five night stay here and the space around the Chapel within which children can race about is invaluable. The location is great for Mt Buller and Lake Eildon and we would strongly recommend a visit to the delightfully sited and nearby Delatite Winery and the former mining settlement of...
