Vineyard Cottages and Café Review

Built around a turn-of-the-20th-century church that's now the Vineyard Café, this property boasts seven period-style cottages set amid two acres of gardens, only two blocks from Ballandean village. The charming lodgings, built in the 1990s in a style that complements the rustic church, are furnished with comfortable sofas, colonial antique furniture, and vases brimming with roses from the gardens. The private, one-bedroom Queen Cottages (which have 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 an open fireplace, bar, library, and games; King Terraces offer semi-self-contained kitchenettes. Chef Mean Ngov varies his Modern Australian menus seasonally to showcase fresh local produce, and does a great gourmet hamper on request.
