This lovely home is your home away from home, the fridge was stocked with staples and the pantry as well. The cottage gardens are a beautiful setting to sit in and relax with a glass of wine (which Cheryl left for us). The location is perfect just a 10 min stroll down to the main street.
The house comfortably fit 5 Adults (Girls weekend away) and would suite more, would defiantly recommend staying here if you are looking at traveling the wineries in the area.
We were at Rutherglen for our son’s wedding. Mulberry House was the best find.Great location, fabulous house, brilliant floor plan,it didn’t lack for anything.And it was cleaner than my own home! Loved the new oak dining furniture and coffee table. Loved the outdoor patio/BBQ area, all covered in should there be rain.Everything was user friendly. And so for us, it was a win win. The wedding was fabulous, so too was our accommodation.
In every respect, Cheryl went out of her way to accomodate us. Thanks Cheryl!
Our son was recently married at one of the Rutherglen district wineries and we based ourselves at Mulberry House for the big day and a few days before and afterwards. A key factor in choosing the house was that it was only 10 mins drive to wedding venue and walking to the main street and shops at other times was easy. The house was perfect as we had various relatives with us from overseas and interstate and the extra space was very handy - all four bedrooms are comfortably furnished. Cheryl was very helpful during the booking process and with guidance on local eateries and wineries for our group to visit on the other days we stayed. The house has almost every comfort for a week/weekend and some surprises such as a free bottle of wine and a fridge and pantry with a few staple items.
Mulberry House is located in a quiet street which only has local traffic and is a pleasant ten minute walk or very quick drive from the supermarket, hotels, bakeries, 2 petrol stations & other shops in the main street of Rutherglen.
The accommodation is impeccably clean, organised & tidy throughout the entire house & it has no stale odours, carpet stains etc. The house is large & well laid out and with, for our group of five males over 60, spacious living areas & bedrooms so that we were not living on top of each other & could have our own space when needed.
The kitchen includes an extensive range of cutlery, cooking utensils, appliances etc. in which, unlike some places, everything works and is easy to find. The house is very well furnished & equiped throughout the living & sleeping areas along with bathrooms etc of which the later included all the toiletries & towels that we needed & all of good quality.
Cheryl is a terrific host who is easily accessible but not intrusive. She provided us with a range ofl information including on local wineries and places to eat which decidedly improved our two days around Rutherglen. Without Cheryl's input our trip would have been poorer.
There is a lovely undercover outdoor area and we very much wanted wanted to have an evening BBQ out there with some local wines but unfortunately poor weather denied us that opportunity.
Finally, as our stay was in winter & although the house is large, we had no trouble in keeping it warm throughout.
We used Mulberry House as the base for the weekend of our best friends wedding. During our stay, we were so impressed with our accommodation and all of our friends and family visiting over the weekend made so many lovely compliments about the Mulberry House. The home was beautifully presented and Cheryl has thought of everything to make you feel at home. The beds are very comfortable, there are plenty of quality towels and linen provided and in general the home is spacious and full of natural light. On the morning of the wedding we had up to 20 people in the Mulberry House helping get ready and at no time did we feel 'packed in'. There is a large alfresco area out the back surrounded by beautiful gardens. It was the perfect spot to relax and unwind after some big days. Cheryl was so easy and efficient to communicate with, she made the whole process very simple and to top it off she left 2 delicious bottles of complimentary sparkling wine from the local winery in the fridge for us to celebrate our special occasion. It was such a personal touch and a thoughtful gesture. We all agreed we had made the perfect choice in accommodation for the wedding and can not recommend the Mulberry House enough if you are looking for a home away from home to prepare for your big day.
