Marysville Road Trip + Vibe Hotel

If you’re a regular Cherry and Me reader, you might know that we used to have a holiday house in Marysville, built back in 1990 by my adoring grandparents, Nana Nina and Papa Jerry. Unfortunately, our entire house was burnt to the ground in the Black Saturday Bush Fires.

We regularly visit our empty property and love dropping into our favourite Yarra Valley wineries and eateries along the way. This time we decided to stay in town over night in the newly built Vibe Hotel, Marysville.
