..... with just a touch of history!

Built in the 1880s on land first granted to George Cox in 1839, historic 118 Mortimer has been renovated over successive generations of owners and now lovingly restored. 'Kythera' was once owned by the proprietor of Mudgee's historic art deco Regent theatre. The Mediterranean origins of past owners, from the 1930s through to the 1970s, is referenced through the columns and rendering as well as through the naming, 'Kythera'. The cottage and stables were built for the first owner, a blacksmith William Little.You will find the original stables fireplace still standing not far from where you park your car. In 1898 William Little sold the property to Patrick Kirby, named in the title deed as a 'boarding house keeper' (a facsimile copy of the title deed between William Little and Patrick Kirby hangs in the rear hall). You can see 'Kythera' has a long history in providing accommodation in the township and district! Steep yourself in the history of this special piece of Mudgee’s past, when next you tour the Central West of NSW.

Charming gharacter home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming character home with its big bedrooms and high ceilings. The kitchen was well appointed with a great coffee machine. We found it quite quiet, yet it was just a short walk to the centre of town especially the club, pub and quality restaurants. Look forward to staying again.

Charming Property

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable stay in a great location. We appreciated the well stocked kitchen, big bedrooms and comfy beds. We loved the lounge area with convivial atmosphere around large coffee table. Atmospheric lighting but not always functional for cooking etc. Outside bathroom/laundry was good. Mirror in this area would have been handy. The backyard was delightful with good BBQ and sociable space. Would definitely return and recommend to others.
