Deloraine homestead is a delightful B&B located on the edge of the bush with lovely valley views perfectly situated for touring the Yarra Valley and enjoying the rustic character and walking tracks of Warburton. The service and style of the host, Peta is just what you would expect from a top class B&B anywhere in the world. There are two in-house rooms and the separate 'Bush Palette' cottage, where we stayed, available.
The 'cottage' is decorated in a modern style with a colour scheme based on the Australian bush. When we arrived Peta had the wood heater going and afternoon tea ready for us to serve ourselves. We chose the 'cottage' because we wanted a little privacy for our 30th Wedding anniversary and the ability to set our own schedule which we were able to do with the breakfast provisions provided that we cooked ourselves. In the evening we went for a stroll down the meandering drive passing by a mob of kangaroos who are regular visitors.
Peta is a delightful hostess offering advice on touring options and local venues at which to dine. During our conversations I happened to metion that we are planning to build and before we left she took us inside to have a look through the homestead explaining some of the 'tricks' she had employed in achieving the Victorian style interior. Once we saw the Jacaranda Suite I wished I had opted to book it as Peta has a real flair for interior design. There were so many little touches that finished off the design of homestead, from tiny beaded purses hanging off the hallstand to the wreath on the door that our hostess had purchased and carried home all the way from Toronto in Canada.
Guests who stay in the homestead have a cooked breakfast provided by Peta and having experienced an evening meal that she cooked and served us in the cottage on our first night, I'm sure it would be excellent. While Deloraine homestead is not a cheap option it is worth the cost and we enjoyed it immensely.
