Tiny Houses for Big Hearts
Offering a unique animal lovers retreat, Edgar’s Mission is excited to announce the much anticipated reopening of their sustainable tiny house accommodation, offering an eco-friendly country getaway amongst rescued farmed animals.
Designed for couples and singles over 18, you’ll enjoy an immersive experience at the sanctuary during a weekend stay, which includes a guided tour to meet some of the rescued animal residents.
Thoughtfully designed with sustainability and style in mind, Edgar’s Mission’s tiny houses offer visitors a cosy and serene retreat. Each meticulously crafted with a focus on energy efficiency and reducing carbon footprint, they incorporate renewable energy systems to ensure a truly eco-conscious experience.
Guests will have the unique opportunity to wake up to breathtaking views of the sanctuary, surrounded by rescued animals who serve as constant reminders of the power of kindness. From friendly sheep to playful pigs and curious cows, every interaction promises to be a heartwarming and unforgettable experience.
Each tiny house has kitchen facilities, a toilet and shower, and is partly solar-powered. The stylish interiors feature products sourced from companies who share Edgar’s Mission’s values of non-harm and sustainability.
To keep our animals safe from disease, please follow these important biosecurity measures:
- If you are an Australian citizen who has travelled overseas or an international citizen in ANY country outside of Australia, please do not visit the sanctuary for 7 days after your return as per the Victorian Government directive. Please contact us if you have booked a visit and this applies to you.
- If you have visited a factory/intensive farm do not visit the sanctuary for 7 days.
- Please ensure your footwear, clothing and equipment is free of any mud, animal manure or other contaminants before visiting.
- It is essential upon arrival at Edgar’s Mission, that you step on the foot bath at the entrance to ensure your shoes are clean.
Thank you in anticipation of your kindness and cooperation. Please remember that biosecurity is EVERYONE’S responsibility.
Please read our Help Centre regarding diseases and how we are minimising the risk.
Thoughtfully designed spaces
The interiors are directly inspired by the animals, with each house themed around a famous past resident of the sanctuary. Edgar Alan Pig’s tiny house is furnished in pink, black and greys; Little Miss Sunshine, the ex-battery hen, is represented in her house by warm browns, greens and golds. And then there’s Timmy the sheep’s tiny house, which includes a library.
Metals, concrete and rope, materials traditionally associated with industrialised farming practices and the confinement of animals, have been re-purposed and integrated into the interiors, creating an industrialised farmhouse look but also reflecting the system the sanctuary’s animals have been saved from.
Each tiny house has a deck with sweeping views, and it’s a short walk to the sanctuary grounds, with over 400 rescued animal residents.
Get up close and personal with our rescued animal residents on a guided sanctuary tour, visit the charming township of Lancefield, or take a drive to explore Hanging Rock or Mount Macedon during your stay.
Please note that due to safety and insurance reasons, all tiny house stays are available for a maximum of two adults aged 18+ only, and unfortunately we cannot accommodate children or companion animals. We regret that no exceptions can be made. Thank you for your understanding
