The Lodge - Historic Getaway in a Prime Destination

Cottage in Terara
From $600 to $800 /night

“The Lodge” offers an idyllic sanctuary for a bespoke and luxurious getaway nestled within South Coast Dairy country, all within the sanctuary of historic Terara.

The home and it’s neighbours boast an illustrious history dating back to the 1870’s. ‘The Lodge’ forms an integral part of the former Millbank Estate, once home to the de Mestre family, who emigrated from Martinique. Originally serving as a coachman’s cottage for the local physician, this magnificent home has been enhanced into a haven of modern comfort while seamlessly retaining its timeless elegance and south coast country roots.

Exquisite original features in high ornate ceilings, polished timber floors, and working fireplace that add a touch of warmth and charm enhance the allure, whilst a extension provides exceptional functionality, with an open-plan, spacious living area that basks in the natural light from floor-to-ceiling glass windows and overlooks lush gardens and serene rural aspects beyond. The property features a library/sitting room, perfect for relaxing mornings, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a functional kitchen with granite benchtops and stainless steel appliances.

The lodge is an indulgent getaway for bridal parties, larger groups, and romantic couples seeking picturesque accommodation to enhance their special day. It offers a unique experience that combines the tranquillity of the countryside with convenient proximity to popular wedding destinations and the bustling town centre of Nowra. For those who wish to explore the area, it is ideally located close to fantastic ocean beaches and local attractions such as hinterland wineries, art galleries and golf courses.
