Station Masters Cottage - classic quaint & nostalgia

Located in: Exeter
While the railways' backdrop of country trains occasionally rumbling by, it may not be for everyone. However, it adds a certain nostalgic feel of days gone by, and there is much history associated with the railway siding, which you can read all about in the guest compendium at the property. You or some of your guests may even like to consider arriving for your stay by train - practically stepping off the platform and a short stone's throw onto the front veranda!

This extremely interesting property has seen various upgrades over the years, making it a superb and quaint place to stay. It is a classic weatherboard cottage retaining a lot of its original features; high ceilings, internal lining boards and timber flooring updated (but not new or modern) bathroom with separate toilet and electric kitchen. Construction is Western Red Cedar with an iron roof and wide Jarrah and Kauri Pine floorboards. The furnishing and decorating are all very sympathetic and comfortable. The house is warm and cozy in winter.

This is an ideal location to stay at for visiting local wineries, Brigadoon is Bundanoon, Highlands Fling, attending weddings at Montrose Berry Farm, Southern Highlands Winery, Eling Forest, and all the Highlands have to offer including the Glow Worm Glen, Solar Springs, Morton National Park. We are across the road from Exeter Antiques and Gallery Ecosse, a contemporary art gallery situated in The Halcyon Cottage, circa 1869.

The Property Features:

3 x Reverse cycle Daiken air con/heaters
Slow combustion wood stove and heater
Separate lounge and dining areas
2 x Double bedrooms and walk through one twin room (2 singles)
Fantastic stable style door in master bedroom great in summer!
Older style bathroom with bath
Toilet in laundry

The biggest surprise is out the back a large wood-lined shed with polished concrete floors set up as a games room and an additional comfortable lounge area. It has a northern wall of glass sliding doors, creating a beautiful warm sun-trap for breakfast or morning tea and providing a great outlook over a large, fully fenced garden and beyond to the beautiful trees of the village as the occasional train rumbles by.

Slow combustion wood stove and heater
