After being shut for over two months, Chesleigh Homestead will be reopening its doors just in time for the June long weekend.
It's been a tough few years for the business, with drought and bushfires causing headaches, before coronavirus came along.
With the homestead forced to close because of the pandemic, it left the team at Chesleigh in an even more difficult financial situation, considering they had to look after 28 horses with no major source of income.
But Chesleigh manager Sasha Cody said she was overwhelmed when her clients dug deep to donate over $13,000 to purchase a truckload of hay.
"We had people contacting us and asking how we can help, so we started up a GoFundMe page and we were absolutely blown away," she said.
"We received donations of several thousand dollars from some people and there were kids donating pocket money."
Chesleigh, which is located on the Hill End Road, has been open for over 40 years and offers a variety of accommodation.
The homestead is also famous for its horse-riding trails and home cooked meals.
Ms Cody said she's relieved that the business will be reopening for the June long weekend.
"We're back up on Friday and we're very, very relieved," she said.
"Given the size of the property, spacing and social distancing won't be too difficult.
"We're completely booked out. The phone has been running off the hook and business is looking healthy moving forward."
