We spent 2 days (Friday & Sat night) on a getaway from the stresses of family. With the intent of just enjoying local wining and dining and a good gossip. The Accommodation was excellent. Very warm and cosy. We had organized a Deluxe Cheese platter for our arrival and it was so big we didn't have to go our for dinner for both nights. The sour dough bread is the best I've had in years. Breakfast was enough to feed an army. The snags were lovely.
Everything was set up for us to the point that the hardest thing we had to do was light the already prepared fire and open the first of many fine local wines. The place is a nice stroll to the township of Olinda.Beds very comfy. Not one complaint of a bad bed. And there were four of us and we all had a large queen size bed to ourselves.
We did the short beginners chocolate making class and Linda is a very patient and a genuinely good teacher. Linda had prepared a hot chocolate drink upon our arrival at the class and said that it was quite rich and we could put it aside if it was too much. There was laughter and down the hatch it went. That should have warned her that she was not dealing with amateurs. We learnt quite a bit and got to consume a good bit of chocolate. Highly recommend this place to anyone. Will definitely be returning.
