Wedding guests came from afar to help Natalie & Nick celebrate their nuptials in Rutherglen at All Saints Winery this weekend. The Melbourne couple were extra special guests of the B&B and brought along their beautiful fur-boy Paddy, a real bon vivant! Bon chance!
Yackandandah is an easygoing 30 minute drive via the Indigo Valley from Rutherglen. It’s a lovely cafe and arts village with plenty of shady parks and tree-lined streets to wander.
The fur-kids enjoyed a swim in the gorge river before refreshments in the evening back in Rutherglen at our award winning wine bar-restaurant Thousand Pound.
Congratulations to guests Diann and Bob, celebrations aplenty at the B&B this weekend for their 50th wedding anniversary.
Gift certificates now back in stock & available immediately.
Available as a value amount or specified total of nights. Certificate is mailed immediately upon payment.
Christmas, anniversary, birthday or a special thanks, the salutation occasion is yours to write.

Just back from an awesome hiking trip in Japan on Kii Peninsula. Here’s some of my little treasures on display at the B&B....if you’d like to know more about the Kumano Kodo switch over to the Buen Camino blog, or contact me.
Just a few weeks ago I was lucky to be chosen to host The Australian newspaper journalist Tess Akerman at the B&B. Tessa was covering the Festival of Short Walks event in our region.
More than lucky I’m feeling blessed to have been given such a great rap in her Weekend Australian Magazine (9 Nov). Thanks Tessa, hope to see you back this way sometime soon!
Meet Miss Zuki. What a delightful girl she was. Very obedient & cheeky too. We miss you already, look forward to welcoming you back anytime with your human-parents Sue & John.
With warmer days the geraniums are getting a g-up along the driveway. Guests can enjoy the blooms from the front veranda and whilst walking to rear yard to enjoy the evening views towards the High Country
A visit to Rutherglen to view the roses? You won’t be disappointed..right up to Cup Day and into early summer your head will spin!
Early morning wandering the front garden is a real delight at the moment. Each morning another little poppet has bloomed
I can’t really complain about winter as I was lucky enough to be in residence in Queensland for most of it this year, and Spain last year, but I gotta say how happy I am to see the garden this Spring (I was in Spain last year so no Spring for me in 2018). The wisteria is not far off hitting its straps now so stayed tuned for some images of that beautiful display of foliage.
Toby stopped in for a night on his way to northern NSW for the week. Looking forward to seeing you back here next weekend Toby (and fur-parents Chris & John)
On returning from my Queensland break I noticed plenty of changes around Rutherglen. Clearly evident was the vast swathes of golden canola fields....and new signage at Rutherglen Estates. RE is now owned by the DeBortoli family.
Yes even the host needs a break occasionally! I enjoyed an extended break on the Sunshine Coast with the chihuahuas during July & August just gone.
During this period of respite some repeat B&B guests took up the offer to stay at La Maison on a self-contained basis (min 5 nights). They were rewarded with full run of the property and feedback suggests they all thoroughly enjoyed their stay.
So it’s back to business as usual now so I look forward to hosting your stays over the coming months.
Guests are really enjoying the Spanish omelettes spiced with smokey sweet paprika and Gamze chorizo.
Yard duty never ceases at the B&B. It’s a good thing I like gardening.
And after the work is done there is always some energy left for a dog walk & afternoon tea.
The degree outside is falling like a well oiled diesel train now! For in-house guests whose stay is over Sunday-Tuesday nights (inclusive) I offer a dinner package. This Italian-inspired winter menu offers tummy warmer delights such as Minestone soup, spinach & ricotta ravioli, osso bucco, lamb with mint salsa, roasted vegetable risotto & oven-roasted Marsala pears.
Book in soon!
Your host Kellie-Anne
