Having stayed 3 nights at Wiss House has made us appreciate the hard work and dedication that Sara, our host and owner of the property, has put into this venture. Sara is a warm hearted and welcoming... More

Everything was great. Romantic and peaceful. Host Sara was fabulous. You must have dinner & brkfst. She is a great cook & it just made the whole experience. We will go back for sure. The area around kalbar was great for country drives and bushwalks & the food at the local pub was great.

We were fortunate enough to have the whole of beautiful Wiss House to ourselves for a Saturday night stay. Sara was a wonderful host cooking an amazing 3 course dinner and then a hot breakfast on Sunday morning. We will definitely be back.
