Welcome to Parson's Retreat, a fully-self contained cottage in Bendigo. The cottage is located in a heritage precinct on a corner location where woodland ducks visit to sit on the chimneys, and rosellas and cockatoos frequent the garden. Built in 1882, Parson's Retreat has been completely renovated and refurbished in 2015 with quality furnishings and appliances. Original features have been restored such as baltic pine floors, dado boards and an early clothes copper.
A surprisingly spacious cottage, Parson's Retreat has two bedrooms and two dedicated eating areas in a dining room and bright breakfast area. The main bedroom is large with ten foot ceilings and double aspect windows. It has a queen size bed and the second bedroom has two single beds. All beds have non-partner disturbance mattresses and quality linen. Enjoy relaxing in the comfortable lounge fitted with TV and DVD player. The kitchen retains its original charm and is fully functional with newly fitted cabinetry and appliances. The bathroom hosts a roll top bath, walk-in shower, and there is a second separate toilet. There is an efficient central heating and cooling system which gives all year round climate control.
The garden is fully fenced and ample size with lush green grass and a bricked courtyard seating area. Take time to sit beneath the old apple tree and read the Saturday paper which is delivered to your door.
A welcome hamper greets you upon arrival.
Secure onsite parking is provided.
Parson's Retreat is a smoke free environment.
Sorry no pets.
