The Lodge Country House Review

Rambling and aristocratic, this bluestone homestead 3 km (2 mi) south of Marananga was built in 1903 for one of the 13 children of Joseph Seppelt, founder of the showpiece winery across the road. Barossa vintages fill the wine cellar, crystal and polished timber gleam in the formal dining room, and big, comfortable sofas inspire relaxing in the sitting room, perhaps with a book from the library. The four large guest rooms are furnished in period style; a bay-window seat in each looks out at the gorgeous garden. Set-menu dinners (A$80), available by reservation, make good use of local produce. There's a minimum two-night stay on weekends.
