We rang Judy whilst on our journey to back to Victoria from far North Queensland, at short notice she was able to accommodate us in one of her LUXURY rooms. What indulgence with a pampering en suite bathroom including spa bath, along with a King size bed and gas log fires in all the rooms. Our breakfast the next morning... More

We stayed here over Easter and had a fabulous time. Everything you need is catered for and it's within driving distance to all the wineries of Rutherglen. We stayed for three nights in a really comfy bed and although you are right on the corner of an intersection there isn't much road noise.

This house was gorgeous, absolutely stunning, with formal gardens, gas fires, glamour bathrooms, plenty of space and not a doily in sight. Breakfast is made for you in a light filled conservatory so you can play lord and lady of the manor in the sunshine and either have your room made up or be left in peace. The owners live... More

“There are 2 rooms- one has a separate lounge area which is great if one person is an early riser and one likes to sleep in (Mckay Suite) and the other is the Bourke Suite which is a large bedroom with a sitting area (not separate). Both rooms are absolutely beautiful!”

“There are two rooms - the Bourke suite and the Conway. The Bourke is open plan and the Conway has a small private sitting room with a fireplace. The Bourke is slightly noisier but traffic finishes fairly early. Both have gas fireplaces, hydronic heating, evaporative cooling and en suites”
