Overview

About the property

Welcome to Rushton Cottage B&B - a private apartment in a 1904 Edwardian cottage with a contemporary farm-house touch - high ceilings, polished floorboards, original doors and bullnose veranda. PETS are welcome by prior arrangement.

Rushton Cottage B&B provides high quality accommodation, is centrally located in a shady tree-lined street and is within easy walking distance of most of Benalla’s cafes, restaurants and shops, sport and recreation centers, arts and cultural destinations.

Rushton Cottage B&B is a private guest apartment suited to a COUPLE (king bed) OR 2 SINGLES (king beds twin-share). Guest quarters include a stylish bedroom with ensuite (shower-over-bath) and walk-in wardrobe, your own sitting/dining room, guest only entrance, furnished north facing veranda, off-street parking and a fenced cottage garden.

Your host will welcome you, give you a tour of your space, set you up with “24/7 host support” and then leave you to enjoy a memorable and restful stay in Benalla. Or you might prefer to use the independent option of a key-safe code … a stress-free choice when you’re not sure about your arrival time.

Guest rooms overlook the traditional cottage garden with your north-facing veranda THE best place to wine, dine, soak up the sun and ponder on those ‘wouldn’t it be lovely” plans.

Linen and towels are supplied as are heaters, electric blankets, ceiling fans and air-conditioning. Your sitting/dining room includes a smart TV, DVD player, sound system, a “table for two” to enjoy the complimentary breakfast (in private and at a time to suit you), a side-board complete with crockery & cutlery, fridge with your breakfast supplies, and toaster, kettle and microwave.

Complimentary breakfast supplies are provided for you to prepare at your leisure. Guests staying for two or more nights will enjoy the “good fairy” who will clean up each morning ... ... take away the used, replace with clean and leave your next morning’s complimentary breakfast.

PLEASE NOTE - 2-night minimum FRI/SAT bookings, Labor Day and Queens Birthday w/end, Easter and Christmas. Pets welcome by prior arrangement.

HOW TO GET HERE - Rushton Cottage is a 2-hour drive/train from Melbourne (Hume Highway/Southern Cross Station). Try a semi car-free experience – bring your car then explore Benalla on foot – great exercise and a closer look at the local history, sports and arts. Or travel by train, pack your bikes (google V-line for details) and sight see at a cracking pace .. maybe join the local lycra set ... great energy and lots to see.

NEARBY - 10 min to the Gliding Club of Victoria, 15 mins to Winton Motor Raceway, 20 min to Winton Wetlands, 30 mins to Wangaratta’s Jazz festival, 40 mins to Mansfield (doorstep to the snowfields), 50 mins to historic Beechworth, and in the middle of some of the best wine regions in Victoria.
