SOME THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

The Vine Lodge property is a heritage treasure and we treat it as such. Some sections of the building fabric are fragile. Your historic experience may be characterized by floorboards that creek, uneven sandstone paving, steps with non-standard rises, low door openings and flaking lime wash wall finishes.
Enjoy your country experience, away from screens. We have one television in the house.
We love parties and pets, but not at our place.
Most guests bring indoor shoes, pack your best slippers.

A LONG & RICH HISTORY

Vine Lodge was founded by Henry Badgery circa 1826. Today, the property has been lovingly restored by its current owners. The main house was restored as a residence and the conservation and adaptive reuse of the two outbuildings resulted in a guest wing and studio. Vine Lodge is described as being Colonial Georgian in style, however it incorporates features of the Indian Bungalow style. Read more

HORSE AGISTMENT

The Vine Lodge Property offers short and long term horse agistment, stabling and round yards. Read more
Visitors to the Vine Lodge house do not have access to the horse facilities unless by arrangement.

LOCAL

The quintessential village of Exeter awaits at the end of Vine Lodge’s tree lined driveway. Not that you actually need to leave the property, but the coffee at the Exeter General Store is worth the stroll. While you are there browse the antique shop or book the tennis courts. Beyond Exeter, find wineries galore, bushwalks in Morton National Park and quaint markets, to name a few Southern Highlands distractions. Ask us about our favorite restaurants and cafes.

TESTIMONIALS

This small but precious heritage gem is of a quiet, authentic beauty that radiates a wonderous sense of well-being. It has been tenderly nudged into the 21st century with skill, respect, and exceptional taste.  Visitors, however, should be aware of the pitfall. They will hate it when it comes time to leave. We did.
CynthiaBerlin
Our stay in the lovely heritage listed Vine Lodge was a journey back through history. It has been lovingly and stylishly  restored to provide modern comfort without losing any of its elegant, rustic charm. The charming little village of Exeter is just a stroll  away. First and foremost, Vine Lodge is a place to relax in the company of good friends and loved ones.
SidneyCentral Coast
Vine Lodge is truly special. Historically the house is of high significance for its design and original building fabric, one of the most important early homes in the Southern Highlands. However it is so much more, it is a place of mist, magic and memory making.
