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.

Great Property & Location

  • 4 of 5

Had a great weekend away in Mudgee. Kythera was very clean and centrally located. Lounges were very low and hard to get out of. My bed in front bedroom was not very comfortable, but my friends didn't complain about their beds.Would stay here again.

Fantastic family friendly stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Mortimer. Very beautiful, comfortable, clean and warm house to stay in winter. Beds we very comfortable, hot water was great - the HUGE bath was AMAZING! Our host had everything covered, from toys and games for the kids (and adults!), dry goods in the pantry, bathroom toiletries and plenty of books, we really didnt need anything else but our clothes, The location is great, just a block from woolies and restaurants, and a short walk to two parks and the river. Highly recommend and I can't wait to come back! Maybe in summer next time to make the most of the BBQ and outdoor dining area!

We had a family birthday and this was an ideal location. The house was only 5 minutes from the town and had ample parking for the family. The kitchen an facilities were of a high standard. A very enjoyable time was had by all.
