Some great accommodation options have popped up around Rutherglen recently. If you’re planning a trip up our way soon, here are some unique places to stay. Be sure to book early as these properties do book well in advance for weekend stays. Or consider a mid-week visit!
We love our bush camping, but this new glamping experience on site at Cofield Wines sounds like a beautiful way to experience a working vineyard in a picturesque rural setting. Choose from two bell tents fully furnished with king size beds. The experience is a partnership with The Pickled Sisters Café, so you can expect delicious breakfast hampers and optional dinner hampers/platters as part of your stay.

If hosted accommodation is more your style, then check out Amberesque B&B. A fun and energetic couple Amber and Shannon took over this luxury bed and breakfast in Main Street (formerly known as Bank on Main) about 8 months ago. They’ve put their own touches on the historic property and Amber has a passion for cooking, with a repertoire that extends from French to Spanish to Melanesian! Prime location next door to our favourite wine bar, Thousand Pound, too!
MOODEMERE LAKE HOUSE
Situated on Lake Moodemere Estate, a working vineyard and farm, this self-contained guest house has uninterrupted, private views of Lake Moodemere. Abundant bird species and native wildlife are regular visitors to the property, and the sunsets are incredible (see below image by local photographer Ann Killeen)! Provisions for a cooked and continental breakfast with estate-grown and made preserves are included.
Located opposite All Saints Estate in Wahgunyah is a newly refurbished self-contained cottage. The interior is fresh and contemporary, and sleeps 6 with two queen and two single beds. A cosy wood fire and bottle of wine on arrival should help you settle in! You’ll find this cottage on AirBnB.
