My partner and I stayed here over the Australia Day weekend. Stefan was an amazing host that cooked a delicous hearty breakfast. Beautiful rooms and large dining area. Loved the library and the homely feel of the place. Will definately be returning.

Each room comes with it's own... More

Although we only stayed one night, there are lots of comfy sofas in the lounge rooms and a lifetime of books and collectibles so there's plenty to keep you amused if... More

This is an excellent bed and breakfast (and dinner if you want it) in the Southern HIghlands town of Bundanoon. It's got a very laid back and country house feeling, although and although it's not a huge property nor grand in the large scale sense, it feels like you're staying in a big country house where there are nooks and...
