The Cooperage Bed and Breakfast

41 Kelman Vineyards, off Oakey Creek Rd., Pokolbin, New South Wales, 2320, Australia

This lovely B&B is in the heart of Kelman Vineyards Estate, a working vineyard with a cellar door just a stone's throw from the rooms. There are three guest-room options: the peaceful rooms in the main house are best described as rustic chic, with north-facing windows overlooking the vineyards. For more privacy, there's a small Scandinavian-style studio apartment tucked out back (called "the Retreat"). Alternatively, the Champagne Suite is decorated with Asian and Turkish collectibles and has an entire wall of glass doors, opening out onto a deck with wonderful views over pear trees and Shiraz vines. Owners Gay and Warren Cooper are the perfect hosts and fantastic cooks—ask for their famous ricotta pancakes with honeycomb butter at breakfast. The B&B has a small private home cinema if you want to relax with a movie.
