The SpaceWe're part way through a year-long renovation project, so although all amenities are functional, some parts of the garden and minor parts of the house are obviously unfinished. That said, there are plenty of quiet, comfortable spaces indoors and out, and two bedrooms to choose from, each sleeping up to two people. Guest AccessMi casa, su casa - our guests have free use of the lounge, kitchen, laundry, etc, whether or not we're in residence. If we're away the shed will be locked but the stable can accommodate a small car. Interaction with GuestsWhen we're in residence we'll be discreet hosts, on hand with local information as needed but only socialising as much as our guests feel inclined. If we're away, a nearby friend will manage the handover and be contactable to answer any questions. The NeighborhoodGrenfell is a delightful town with a population under 3000, known for the friendliness of the locals. Its charming gold-rush era architecture is remarkably well preserved, and there are stylish cafes, art and sculpture galleries, and Main Street shops offering old-fashioned country service.
The surrounding region offers bushwalking and birdwatching, indigenous history, colonial bushrangers’ hideouts, heritage farms, quality providores of wine, brandy, apples and stone fruit, olives, locally roasted coffee, smoked fish and other delicacies, and Iandra, a heritage manor house and estate.
The local Caltex offers maps and tourist leaflets, or for more info check the town website ((URL HIDDEN) dot au). Getting AroundYou can walk from one side of Grenfell to the other in half an hour, or borrow our pushbike or electric bike (deposit payable). We offer both on and off-street parking for your car. Getting to Grenfell without a car requires catching a slow bus from Canberra or a train and bus from Sydney. Consult the NSW Transport Info website for more detail. Other Things to NoteIf we give you a phone number to facilitate contact, please bear in mind that we are usually asleep between midnight and 8am.
