Perfect place to      stay

Angus May 2022

Sarah's cottage was the perfect place to stay to explore the Coonawarra. The cottage is super cosy, with a very comfy bed, an amazing fire place in the living room, and the kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed and more. The cottage was generously stocked with firewood and port, all little touches that really made the stay. The building was quiet with no real neighbors, yet still super close to Penola town centre. I would highly recommend you stay here when in Penola!

Gorgeous with all the little extras

My husband and I needed a get away and found this amazing place. Not only did it have what we think we needed, it had so much more that we didn’t know we needed. With a gorgeous layout with all the little extras you could ever want we highly recommend if your looking for an all inclusive place.

Susan and Apollo August 2022

The property was very well presented, quirky and inviting. It contained everything that we needed. Love the open fire. It’s well situated - quiet but close to the main centre - and we loved our stay.
