Dumas House Troy
Beautiful house and garden which allowed for an enjoyable stay in a very special location. Located close to everything you could possibly need in Mount Barker. The house was well maintained and the spa and swimming pool were enjoyed by the children. Three peaceful nights spent out the back relaxing enjoying the garden. I would thoroughly recommend the Dumas house for anybody wanting a quiet getaway. P.s loved the big tree out the back
BEAUTIFUL PERIOD HOME WITH LOTS OF CHARM. A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED THAT GARDENS AND POOL WERE NOT WELL MANTAINED. POOL FREEZING DESPITE THE WARM WEATHER.
We 5 family members thoroughly relaxed and enjoyed the spaciousness and comfort of this beautifully presented house and gardens. Space for us all to be together and to retire to read alone. Pool great and very chilly. Walking distance to supermarkets a bonus. Wonderful place for our family week.
Lovely old world charm
We loved our stay at Dumas house, The bed was comfortable and The ammenities are really great. It felt like we had stepped back in time , with some modern twists. The gardens were so beautiful, and the large Oak tree in the back garden provided a perfect canopy to frame the back of the house. We loved discovering all the local towns dotted through the Adelaide Hills. We would definitely come again.
Comfortable and homely.
Well located character house. Lovely established garden with an exceptional oak tree.
Enjoyed our stay, felt instantly at home.
Gorgeous for bridal party!
Myself and my 3 bridesmaids stayed here before my wedding. Fit us all perfectly. We had everything we could need and it was a gorgeous setting for our photos. Also stayed the night of the wedding with my husband and he loved it.
