Overview

About the property

Quince Cottage is situated on two acres with over an acre of fruit trees, lovely grounds and gardens and exquisite views of Watervale and the surrounding vineyards. It is equipped with the best of everything. Wireless broadband available.

An original 1920s sandstone cottage has been painstakingly renovated to the highest possible standards. Quince consists of a gourmet kitchen and dining area, double size lounge room with open fire, two Queen-size bedrooms, the master with en-suite. The main bathroom has a spa and secret garden. There is a large front verandah, rear patio with BBQ, and bush garage.

The kitchen has every thing you could possibly need, stainless steel fridge, dishwasher, under-bench oven, and cook-top, range hood microwave oven, etc. The crockery is high quality china, Stanley Rogers cutlery, European glassware, stainless steel Miska pots and pans, Mundial Knives, the works.

Relax in Luxury with the Best of Everything- Open Fire, Spa, En-suite

There is a luxury spa bath that looks into a secret, and completely private, Japanese garden. The spa is set in a giant window which protrudes into the enclosed garden; this allows for a glass roof, so guests can sit in the spa and contemplate the sun or the moon. In the secret garden there are large trees, illuminated by pin lights, a running water pond with a Japanese water feature, white stones and everything to create a peaceful and romantic setting (very Zen)

There are two large bedrooms with large fitted robes, plenty of hanging space and storage areas. The beds are antique, black metal, Victorian and Queen-size. The linen is all first class, Sheridan and above. Please note when booking for one couple that the second bedroom is locked unless by prior arrangement.

In the lounge there is a large wood fired combustion stove, the lounge suite is high quality leather and is very comfortable and welcoming. In addition to the traditional games and books, there are all the creature comforts, such as a LG LCD HDTV 37Inch TV with a DVD and VCR plus a Sony stereo and CD. There is also a small library of DVD and classic VHS Movies, CD's and tapes.

The furnishings are a mixture of antiques and Australian crafted new pieces. Original art adorns the walls, mostly by local artists.

Nothing has Been Forgotten, Inside or Out

There is a fully equipped laundry, with top level equipment, Washers, dryers, irons, etc.

A vine-covered pergola covers the paved courtyard, patio area. There is a teak outdoor setting, with a market umbrella, and a BBQ. This area overlooks a beautiful garden and is both private and very attractive. There is large verandah at the front of the house and this is a perfect spot to sip local wine and watch the sun set over the Watervale valleyGuests can stroll through an acre orchard of apple, pear, cherry, and Quince trees that are on the property.

Quince Cottage is fully air-conditioned and has ample undercover guest parking.

Quince Cottage is in Watervale and is walking distance from three wineries (four if you don't mind a 15 minute walk) a local shop and post office, a beautiful nursery and coffee venue, an antique store and the Watervale Hotel.

It has great views, and is very private and quiet.

Excellent stay. The spa bath was a perfect way to relax after a hard day of riding the riesling trail. The wood fire was very cosy, and the whole experience was beautifully put together.

Beautifully clean cottage with large rooms and very well equipped kitchen. Sharp, quality kitchen knives! Lots of good quality extras in food, toiletries, chocolates and locally produced wine. Helpful owners who recommended nearby places to visit. Bed comfortable, lovely spa bath, big garden with fruit trees and resident entertaining green parrots. This was a quality property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.
