Recently stayed 3 nights in The Cottage. We were very impressed by the wonderful relaxing location overlooking the vineyard. First day breakfast supplies are included, but there a couple of good nearby cafe options in Penola. The Cottage is spacious with good kitchen, large TV, huge bath and comfy beds. Dennis was a friendly approachable host who responded well to any requests we had during the booking process and we received a generous tasting of the premium Highbank Cabernet at check in - thanks again. Highly recommended.

- Honeysuckle Rise Accommodation A touch of Tuscany in the heart of the Coonawarra. Honeysuckle Rise offers two beautifully appointed and self-contained facilities, which offer privacy and location in the heart of the Coonawarra wine region. The choice of two romantic guest retreats, the spacious 'Cottage' where privacy is emphasised in its own vineyard or 'Villa' with 'Room with a View', a cosy second story, but very spacious apartment with picturesque views of the vines from every room. The 'Cottage' and the 'Villa' (down stairs) have an open freestone fireplace and both can accommodate up to four adults. Firewood is provided at a reasonable extra cost of $20 per night of use. 'The Cottage' and 'Villa' both capture the charm of the historic South East but with the most modern of features. Both have spa baths for two persons, fully equipped kitchens, queen size beds, and special views of our vineyards. A fully equipped commercial kitchen in the 'Villa' (down stairs) also allows for the creation of wonderful gourmet meals. The Cottage is a small stone home nestled in its own beautiful vineyard. Close the iron gates at the entrance of the drive and enjoy total seclusion and privacy. The Cottage caters for two or four adults in an open floor plan. The Cottage interior is light and inviting with limestone walls, exposed beams, arched French doors, lead light windows and a stone fireplace. A cosy loft-bedroom overlooks the vineyard and private driveway as the floor plan is open to up-stairs and down. The spacious two-person spa is private and looks out to its own garden to be enjoyed. The 'Room with a View'a second floor Suite, is designed to be that special place for two. There is a very comfortable extra pull out bed, if needed for the chaperon. Where the full two stories of the 'Villa' can accommodate four guests. Each accommodation has its own two-person candle lit spa. Both offer the warm atmosphere and romance of colonial times with the comfort of modern facilities including fully equipped kitchens.
