Vineyard Cottages and Café

New England Hwy., near Bents Rd., Ballandean, Queensland, 4382, Australia

Built around a turn-of-the-20th-century church that's now the Vineyard Cafe and restaurant, this popular property boasts seven period-style cottages set amid 2 acres of manicured gardens, only two blocks from Ballandean village. Furnished with colonial antique furniture, comfortable sofas, and vases brimming with roses from the gardens, the private, one-bedroom, freshly renovated Queen Cottages (with in-room hot tubs big enough for two) and studio-style King Terraces can sleep up to four people; while a two-story, two-bedroom cottage accommodates up to five. The guests' lounge has a cozy open fireplace, bar, library, and games, making it the perfect spot to unwind with a glass or two of local wine. The property's doting hosts go above and beyond to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, while the recently revamped on-site restaurant tempts your taste buds with the best of the region's abundant fresh produce.
