Fodor's Review

Built in 1838 by noted local businessman and brewer who had once been a convict, this fine late-Georgian house is notable for its beautiful cedar architecture and its collection of period English furniture, clocks, and fine china. Morning and afternoon teas are served in the tearoom.
