Three levels of pure luxury, Rapunzel would be jealous! Thank you Lucy for the personal touches and making our weekend memorable.

Stayed in the Lodge, an attractive small house with two bedrooms. Very welcoming atmosphere with appropriate breakfast and friendly staff who all chatted as we walked around the site. Great history to look at and a fantastic range of birds. Very quiet at night though a bit of possum movement! Nothing too much. Slept very well on extremely comfortable bed. Welcoming bottle of wine in fridge very nice touch.

Our stay in the Tower at Mt Ophir was wonderful. Admittedly the staircase was initially daunting but once mastered the amenities and views it provided made the climb well worth it . A cold weekend made the very effective heating very welcome with a split system unit on every floor. The ground floor kitchen had everything we needed to have three lovely long relaxing breakfasts, wanting for nothing. From the delicious fruit toast to the berries, yoghurts, granola, jams, butter , fresh milk and much more - not forgetting the welcome bottle of wine and special cheeses from Indigo Food and All Saints. A modern bathroom and comfy bed were accommodated on the top floor and a very comfortable sitting room on the middle floor. The whole building has been tastefully decorated with some excellent local art on the walls. Meals at Thousand Pounds in Rutherglen and The Terrace at All Saints Winery never disappoint and added to our exceptional long weekend.

DISAPPOINTED.... Beautifully presented but unfortunately that’s where it stops. Beware theses are the conditions we were faced with and told to enjoy our trip home when we raised our concerns. Many shared food and hygiene items along with lock on gate used by made us feel ill at ease especially at this time of COVID. Breakfast that was meant to be included was completely unacceptable and had been used by many others prior to our visit. The peanut butter and especially we think it was jam was unrecognisable and unappetising as it had also crystallised along with mouldy hand wash container in the bathroom and already used shower gel shampoo and conditioner to carry on using after many others was again unacceptable. Considering there was a $75 cleaning fee added to the cost we expected more from a luxury accommodation.

The Gatehouse is a 2 bedroom house at Mount Ophir a few kilometres out of Rutherglen. A great little house that is warm, comfortable and with a full kitchen as well. For cyclists it’s a great spot with plenty of good cycling right on the doorstep. Highly recommended.

Can’t thank Eliza and Lucy enough for the last minute accommodation after a not so pleasant arrival at another motel in town. We found this gem of a property and they were willing to accommodate us at the very last minute which made our anniversary even more amazing. I don’t think I have ever stayed at a place so unique, I would love to see some old style swings or a tyre swing for the kids, I can’t wait to come back with the kids. The rest of the accommodation looks just as amazing.

We spent 6 nights in the Tower in late December 2019 and had a wonderful stay. The tower gave expansive views of the farms around us. While we knew other people were also staying in accommodation on the property, it felt like everyone had their own privacy and space. Lucy and Eliza were enthusiastic, considerate and responsive hosts in communications prior to and during our stay. It felt as though they truly wanted us to have as great a visit as possible. The Tower was beautifully decorated. Marble touches on all three levels: a marble topped dining table on the ground floor, the coffee table for the library on the second floor and a marble topped bed side table and marble bathroom on the top floor. The bed sheets and bathrobes were soft and airy linen and the towels were fluffy. The split systems for each of the three floors were very handy. There is a lot of lighting options to chose from and we didn’t need half the lights available. We were engaged with our books, but there is a huge range of books to peruse in the library. The vases of flowers on each floor were also a lovely touch. Breakfast provisions along with berries, cheese and wine awaited us in the fridge. There was different glass ware to suit many types of booze. The kitchen has a microwave but is not designed for cooking meals. This was not a problem as we gorged on delicious locally prepared dishes at All Saints, Thousand Pounds, Jones Winery, Lake Moodemere Estate, Pickled Sisters Café and the always exceptional Provenance in Beechworth (well worth the drive). We highly recommend the Tower for a romantic getaway. Hint for people coming here: we recommend packing in smaller bags rather than coming with one big suitcase for easy carrying up the stairs.

We were part of a weekend party, where the whole estate was ours exclusively. The accommodation is fantastic as are the facilities. Couldn't have asked for more. All age groups were provided for and we had a great weekend.

We rented the pickers cottage with a group of girls for a winery getaway. Lucy the host was so lovely and accommodating and the cottage itself is absolutely beautiful. Everyone was really surprised at how spacious it really is and we all had a great time. Cannot recommend this accommodation and the host highly enough.
