If you love the charm and character of historical homes then this stay is for you.
Windemere House is a 120 year old Queenslander set on a beautiful 12 acre property in the Australian bush.
Located just 15 minutes from the town of Gympie. This large family home is ready to host your unique country retreat.
The house can sleep up to 8 people and has a master ensuite and second bathroom, kitchen, dining and living room.
The front porch is charming to sit on and sip your tea, coffee or a glass of wine while you take in the spectacular scenery surrounding the property and enjoy the breeze.
Windemere House was formerly the Nash family home. James Nash was the first to announce the findings of rich gold in October 1963 which went on to be one of the largest gold rushes in Australian History. James married his sweetheart Elizabeth in 1868 and built the house a year later in 1869. They had 3 sons and 2 daughters.
James was honoured with a memorial fountain in Gympie Park.
The property is situated on an unsealed road. It is accessible by all vehicle types, it is recommended that you drive slowly to reduce dust and avoid disturbing the wildlife.
There is plenty of wildlife to view during your stay.
There is also a chicken coup and guests are welcome to collect the eggs if the chickens are so kind to leave some.
The home is indicative of an old country cottage. If you don't like the idea of staying in an old house in the great Australian bush, this country stay is not for you.
